Former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy has found love with former fitness model, Jason Toohey, who is professionally a pirate at the Treasure Island Hotel/Casino in Las Vegas.
Jenny McCarthy has been dating the chiseled pirate for two months, and she and her son, Evan, have recently moved in with him temporarily as her home in Los Angeles is being rebuilt. “I’ve been living in Vegas for about a month,” McCarthy told People magazine. “My house is under construction right now in L.A., so I very well could be here until it’s done. It’s been awesome here.”
Jason has been Jenny’s first public relationship since actor and comedian, Jim Carrey, whom she dated for five years. Throughout those years, Jim became a prominent figure in Jenny’s son’s life as well. Jim aided in 8-year-old Evan’s improvements with Austism, and supported Jenny’s advocacy and public awareness of the disorder. The media described their break-up as remaining very respectful and loving toward one another. The split was reportedly associated with Jim’s volatile, ongoing battle with depression.
The amicable split was addressed by the couple through Twitter. “I’m so grateful for the years Jim and I had together,” McCarthy wrote. “I will stay committed to Jane [Carrey's 22-year-old daughter] and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.”
“Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship,” Carrey tweeted. “I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best!”
Like, Twitter, Jason and Jenny have taken their blooming romance to the social networks. Oh, it’s Facebook official.
