Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy Are Break-Up Innovators, Announce Split via Twitter

Way to be on the cutting edge of relationship-dissolving, Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy! The Mask actor and the former Playboy model may have become the first celebrity couple to announce their breakup via Twitter on Tuesday, tweeting separately that their relationship of five years had ended.

Carrey was the first to break the news, tweeting,

“Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay! ?;^>”

And lest anyone think that this was a prank executed by the funnyman, McCarthy confirmed shortly after on her own Twitter account, noting,

“Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to [Carrey’s 22-year-old daughter] Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.”

And to think, less than three months ago, they were expressing their love for each other via the ancient art of sky-writing. Sounds like they caught up on technology in a hurry. No word on the reason for the split, though it may be related to the fact that Carrey was spotted kissing a pretty young thing several months ago.
