Jenny and Jim’s relationship may have ended two years ago, but her autistic son Evan, 10, is still suffering from it — how sad!

Jenny McCarthy, 39, revealed in an interview with Howard Stern on June 4 that Jim Carrey is refusing to speak to her son!

After a five-year relationship, the former Playboy model and Jim called it quits in 2010. During that time, her son Evan established a strong bond with Jim. Now that the couple is no longer together, her son severely misses Jim in his life and Jenny has attempted to reach out to him. “I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks,” McCarthy revealed to Stern. Jenny has made many attempts to get Jim to talk to her son, but unfortunately Jim refuses to see Evan.

McCarthy hates that her son has to suffer because of her failed relationship. Jenny explains, “I still love him. 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.”

Because of the dramatic toll Jim’s absence has taken on Evan, Jenny reveals that Evan is seeking professional help. “He’s been in therapy. It’s a process,” she tells Stern, “he’s working on it.”

Despite the unfortunate circumstances surrounding her relationship with her ex, Jenny shared with Stern that she is “so much happier.” Could her blossoming romance with NFL star Brian Urlacher (which we EXCLUSIVELY told you about at Hollywood Life) be the source? We think so!

HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Jim turning his back on Jenny’s son? Sound off below!
