Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy confirm split on Twitter

Posted on


Image Credit: Alexander Tamargo/Getty ImageJim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have parted ways after five years together, the couple announced on their Twitter accounts this afternoon. First Carrey tweeted: “Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay! ?;^>”. McCarthy then tweeted, “Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane [Carrey’s daughter] and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.” There’s something poetic about a couple that’s always been a friend of lowbrow comedy announcing the news on Twitter. The only thing that would have made it better is if they had linked to each other, like, “@JennyfromMTV and I have just ended our 5yr relationship…” Probably a space concern. Definitely more respectful in solid black anyway. (For the record, Carrey’s publicist issued the following statement: “Jim and Jenny have recently decided to end their five year relationship. They are grateful for the many blessings they have shared and wish each other the very best.”)

Jokes aside, this was one of the couples I liked. You could imagine the humor that brought them together, and had to respect how they dealt with difficult things, like her son’s autism. Anyone else a little sad?
