Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have split after five years together
The 48-year-old actor and the former Playboy model, 37, announced the break-up on their Twitter accounts last night. Both insisted it was an amicable split, and claimed they will remain close friends.
"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! ?;^> (sic)," Jim wrote.
Seconds later, Jenny posted: "Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane [Jim`s daughter] and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart."
Jim`s representative Marleah Leslie has also confirmed the split, saying the couple were still close and would continue their friendship.
"Jim and Jennyhave recently decided to end their five year relationship," a statement read. "They are grateful for the many blessings they have shared and wish each other the very best."
The split has come as a surprise to many of the couple`s friends. On Valentine`s Day just two months ago, Jim hired a skywriter to pen a message of love above the Los Angeles home he shared with Jenny. He also posted a romantic note on the internet.
"Jenny my Love, you`ve stolen my heart, my soul and of course anything you find in my pants," he wrote.
