Macaulay Culkin NOT Addicted To Heroin, According To Reps
Despite earlier reports insisting that Macaulay Culkin has only months to live thanks to a crippling heroin addiction, a rep for the Home Alone star insists that he’s not addicted to heroin and is doing just fine.
The National Enquirer first broke the news that actor and former child star Macaulay Culkin is hopelessly addicted to heroin and that his friends fear he only has months to live. “Macaulay Culkin is hooked on drugs and it’s killing him!” an “insider” told the tabloid. “He’s been hooked for a year and a half, and his drug of choice is either heroin or oxycodone. Mac is surrounding himself with junkies and lowlifes. It’s a real tragedy.”
Of course, recent photos of an emaciated and deathly-looking Culkin have fueled the rumor, but the top-notch reporting of the Enquirer probably should have aroused our suspicions right away.
Culkin’s camp blasted the rumors regarding the actor’s various drug addictions Wednesday, debunking them as completely fictitious, according to NY Daily. A rep also told TMZ that concerns over Culkin’s impending death are also unfounded. “The report in the National Enquirer that Macaulay Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious,” the press report said, adding, “We beseech the responsible media to consider the source and its reputation and to please not perpetuate this destructive and insulting story by pursuing it any further.”
The tabloid alleged that a “close friend” told them that Culkin was on a downward spiral following his breakup with Mila Kunis in 2010, and that the actor spends roughly $6,000 a month on drugs.
We’re guessing that by “close friend,” they really mean “fictional reactionary.”
What do you think? Is Macaulay Culkin a heroin addict? Do you trust the National Enquirer?
