Jenny McCarthy has stuck up for actor Jim Carrey’s parenting skills. The former nude playboy model rushed to his defense of her former partner after Shia LaBeouf threw accusations around saying he abandoned his daughter, June a child he shares with Melissa Womer from his first marriage. What happened is that Carrey joke around a little at Shia’s expense during the Golden Globes on Sunday, January 12, 2014, he then responded on Twitter:
“At least I don’t get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child’s (sic)”
Shia soon backtracked, saying:
“Jim Carrey states that he is deeply involved in his daughter’s life – I accept that. Regret tweet on the matter. Apologies to both parents.”
But McCarthy said LaBeouf took things just a little too far. Speaking on US TV show ‘The View’, she said:
“You can attack myself, but don’t bring my children into it. And I’m sure it’s the same for Jim.
“Jim and I have become friends now since our breakup [in 2010]. We dated for five years and I got to know his daughter, Jane, who is a lovely, lovely girl. It’s completely uncalled for and wrong. Jim is a great father. He loves Jane more than anything in the world. Shia did apologize and Jim did take it, but the whole thing is, do not bring our children into it.”
