Jenny McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy has defended Jim Carrey's parenting skills.

The model and activist came to the defense of her former partner after Shia LaBeouf accused him of abandoning his daughter, Jane, from his first marriage to Melissa Womer.

After Jim had made a small joke at Shia's expense during the Golden Globes on Sunday (12.01.14), he had responded on Twitter: "At least I don't get arrested for indecency on major LA highways! Or abandon love child's (sic)"

Shia soon backtracked, saying: "Jim Carrey states that he is deeply involved in his daughter's life - I accept that. Regret tweet on the matter. Apologies to both parents."

However, Jenny felt the 'Transformers' star had taken things a step too far.

Speaking on US TV show 'The View', she said: "You can attack myself, but don't bring my children into it. And I'm sure it's the same for Jim.

"Jim and I have become friends now since our breakup [in 2010]. We dated for five years and I got to know his daughter, Jane, who is a lovely, lovely girl. It's completely uncalled for and wrong. Jim is a great father. He loves Jane more than anything in the world. Shia did apologize and Jim did take it, but the whole thing is, do not bring our children into it."

Jane, 27, is a musician who sings in The Jane Carrey Band. She also appeared on the 2012 edition of 'American Idol'.
