Even though Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey broke up in 2010, Jenny says Jim refuses to see her 10-year-old son, who became close to him during their five-year relationship.

Jenny was on Howard Stern's radio show this week and opened up about Jim and her autistic son, Evan.

"I've tried to ask [Jim] numerous times [to see Evan], because my son still asks. 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."

Jenny hasn't asked Jim directly to see her son, but has gone through "channels" to get him to talk to Evan.

"I haven't [reached out directly] . . . I think that sometimes people need to take a real break from each other. But I still love him. I think you can love people from a distance and respect him."

Even though Jenny didn't talk much about the split, it is sad to see Jim not wanting to spend time with her son. It seems to be a very complicated situation. He is autistic and may not understand that his mommy and Jim are no longer seeing each other even though he was close with Jim. On the other hand, Jim is not the father and really has no obligation to see the child. Would you want to continue a relationship with your ex's child or would that be too complicated?
