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 the National 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.”
