Jenny McCarthy Says Son Misses Ex Jim Carrey 'Almost Weekly'

In a statement to Huffington Post Celebrity, Carrey responded to McCarthy's remarks, saying: "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."

Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey parted ways two years ago but at least one person is still hung up over their relationship: McCarthy's son, Evan. In a candid and emotional interview with Howard Stern Monday, McCarthy claims that Carrey refuses to see her son -- despite her making several efforts to reach out to Carrey. She also said that Evan, who suffers from autism, misses Carrey "almost weekly." The result is therapy sessions for the 10-year-old boy, whose biological father, John Mallory Asher (McCarthy's ex-husband), reportedly has little interaction with him.

"I still love [Carrey]. I think you can love people from a distance and respect him. But 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," McCarthy told Stern.

The former Playboy cover girl, 39, and comedian, 50, split in April 2010 after dating for more than five years. "I'm so grateful for the years Jim and I shared together," McCarthy said about their breakup at the time. "I will continue to be in his daughter's life and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart."
