Friends fear Jim Carrey is “headed for a devastating breakdown,” claims the National Enquirer. “Jim has suffered from severe depression in the past, and you have to worry those fearful days are coming back again,” a so-called “close source” tells the tabloid.

The Enquirer insider adds, “When you talk to him, he’s not as animated as he used to be. He seems at a low point — like a ship without a rudder.” According to the outlet, Carrey’s “most heartbreaking problem is that he still pines for the love of his life, former Playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy.”

Another Enquirer insider explains, “There’s no shortage of young beauties who will throw themselves at Jim, but he’s been searching for real love, and there’s no one to replace Jenny.” Carrey’s “disastrous love life” and career “doldrums” mean the actor could be in serious trouble, suggests the magazine, which cites “concerned sources” as saying that his problems “could push him over the edge.” One source tells the Enquirer, “He’s in a fragile emotional state. Pals fear for his future.”

Uh-huh. The tabloid seems to love nothing more than predicting meltdowns and breakdowns for various Hollywood stars — Christina Applegate, Halle Berry, Katie Holmes, Jennifer Lawrence — getting it wrong over and over again. And that’s what’s happened yet again here. The story is “not true,” a close Carrey pal tells Gossip Cop, adding, “He’s never been happier.”
