Things seem to be headed from bad to worse for Jenny McCarthy. Just last week we learned that McCarthy and actor Jim Carrey had split after a five-year relationship, now HollywoodLife.com is reporting that the Teach2Talk Academy, a school for Autistic children founded by McCarthy and partner Dr. Sarah Scheflen has closed.
A rep McCarthy confirms the news, saying, “Jenny and her partner at the Academy, Sarah Scheflen, had different visions for the school and made a decision to go their separate ways. Both intend to continue on in this important mission. Sarah and Jenny really enjoyed their time working at the Academy and feel honored that they were able to provide such high quality early intervention services to so many children with autism and other developmental disabilities.”
A source also spoke out about the couples much publicized split, saying, “I don’t know who broke up with whom, but I know that for a little bit before the school fell apart Jim was going to possibly buy out Jenny’s partner so the school would be all Jenny’s. Then, next thing I heard, [Jenny] was moving out [from Carrey’s house]. Jenny McCarthy has had…the worst two months of her life. Her school and her man all vanished in about 60 days.”
McCarthy, an outspoken Autism awareness advocate, is mom to 7-year-old son Evan Asher, whom she recently said has “recovered” from autism.
