Yes. I saw that. It sounds like she is going through a tough time overall. She has disagreements with the business partner over the school and then she split up with Jim Carrey.

Still, I do quetin the decision to shut the school down just like that. I wonder what will happen to the kids now? I understand going through a rough patch and having disagreements, but I don't see how that is the kids' problem? There must be alternatives to closing.

It bugs me that the school is closing so soon after the news report that her son never actually had autism. While I hope with all my heart this isn't the case, it makes it seem like she's closing the school because doctor's "misdiagnosed" her son, so she's no longer invested in the cause.

I read a news report that part of her decision to close had to do with no longer have Jim Carrey's checkbook to help with funding. Again, not sure if that's true or not...just another interesting coincidence.

I wondered that a little myself.
