Jim Carrey’s depression causes recent split from longtime partner Jenny McCarthy

JIM Carrey’s battle with depression caused his recent split from longtime partner Jenny McCarthy, it has been claimed.

Sources say the sexy blonde grew tired of the almost five-year relationship being such an “emotional roller-coaster” — but the former couple has vowed to stay friends. “While they always seemed so happy in public, behind the scenes was a different story,” a source told theNational Enquirer. “They were always busting up and getting back together.

“Jim’s problems with depression were a major issue for Jenny and apparently that proved to be the final straw.

“Jenny was constantly on an emotional roller-coaster.

“At the worst times, Jim would simply vanish off the radar, not picking up her phone calls — even hiding out in hotels or one of his homes.

“Jenny is a gorgeous and talented actress and very much wants to move on with her life.

“She knows there’s someone out there who can make her happy — and without all the drama she had with Jim.”
