And keeping true to her outspoken style, an emotional Jenny talked to Howard Stern about her ex-boyfriend Jim Carrey who refuses to keep in contact with Evan.
The Love in the Wild host, 39, who dated the 50-year-old funnyman for more than five years, says Jim no longer keeps in touch with Evan following their 2010 split.
I’ve tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks,” Jenny told Stern, adding that Evan tells her he misses Jim “almost weekly.”
Jenny revealed that, while she doesn’t feel like she can communicate with Jim herself, she’s gone through “channels” to try and convince him to talk to her son.
I haven’t [reached out directly] . . . I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other,” she said. “But 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.”
The Playboy model – who also revealed she lets Evan watch Jim’s films – continued, “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.”
“Jim’s a dark guy,” Howard said during their discussion.
“As you get older, Howard, you kind of get to see things more clearly,” Jenny said about moving on from her relationship with Jim. “Hopefully you get happier [over time], and I am so much happier.”
