Jenny McCarthy made headlines today when she surprisingly revealed that her ex, actor Jim Carrey, isn't quite as serious about the 10-year-old.
"I've tried to ask (Jim) numerous times (to see Evan), because he still asks," McCarthy told Howard Stern, adding that Evan asks about Jim "almost weekly."
“As a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up,” she said.
”I tell [Evan] that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again … [but] it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.”
Evan's father is John Mallory Asher, who Jenny was married to from 1999-2005. As for Carrey, he was far from pleased that Jenny made this public.
Carrey said, "I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan's well being. It's unfortunate that Evan's privacy is not being considered."
"I love Evan very much and will miss him always."
It's pretty clear from Jim's brief statement that he acknowledges he doesn't see the boy, though he does not explain why - probably by design.
One theory (and it's just a theory) is that he feels it would be more harmful to the boy if he comes in and out of his life, so he's cut ties altogether.
