Who would make this up?!
Jenny McCarthy has been fairly vocal about her 11-year-old son Evan’s struggle with autism over the years.
But a new report came out, claiming that in an interview, the 41-year-old beauty admitted making it up!
What the what?!
When Jenny found out, she was obviously ticked off, and set the record straight on Twitter.
“Stories circulating online, claiming that I said my son Evan may not have autism after all, are blatantly inaccurate and completely ridiculous. Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California (through their Regional Center). The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism (and instead may suffer from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome), is both irresponsible and inaccurate. These stories cite a "new" Time Magazine interview with me, which was actually published in 2010, that never contained any such statements by me. Continued misrepresentations, such as these, only serve to open wounds of the many families who are courageously dealing with this disorder. Please know that I am taking every legal measure necessary to set this straight.”
And there you have it!
