Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy break up -- then tell the world via Twitter

Jim carrey jenny mccarthy split Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have been a modern couple, not marrying despite years of companionship. Turns out they're even more modern exes -- the pair announced their split today via Twitter.

Around 3 p.m. Tuesday, McCarthy (@JennyfromMTV) wrote, "Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart."

Jane is Carrey's 22-year-old daughter, who just made the comedian a grandfather in late February, giving birth to son Jackson Riley Santana.

Around the same time as his former partner's tweet, Carrey (@jimcarrey) wrote, "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! ?;^>"

McCarthy and Carrey had many a sweet day strolling on the beaches of Malibu, sharing swimsuits and playing with her son Evan, now 7.

It's no surprise the former Playboy pinup intends to remain a part of the Carrey family. She told the Ministry in December that she was thrilled to be a grandmother to Jane's baby, ring or not.

"I will be called 'grandmother,' with or without a [marriage] certificate," she said. "That baby is going to be mine!"

Oh, the humanity.

One quirk too many between the two of them?

Seriously though, this is sad. I know this is a gossip page and people want the dirt, but I liked the idea of Jenny and Jim together. It made me think better of both of them.

Ms. McCarthy is always the one to surprise us...when she left "Singled Out" on MTV, she brought her replacement, Carmen Electra, to the stage over her shoulder, firefighter's carry and deposited her gently on the floor, feet first. She may not consider herself a bodybuilder, but considering everything she has gone through in the last handful of years, she is a strong woman--physically and mentally. I'm glad she and Carrey parted amicably, and she'll remain a part of his extended family.

their loud mouths and egos just probably got on each other's nerves...they sure do get on mine...
