Macaulay Culkin

I'M NO HEROIN ADDICT

Macaulay Culkin insists he's NOT addicted to heroin -- despite reports claiming he's a chronic dopehead with 6 months to live.

A rep for Macaulay tells TMZ, the reports claiming Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is "not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious."

The rep adds, "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."

He is already shooting the heroin under his fingernails. Just look at his nails in the photo. Less than 6 months left...

I heard a rumor that Mila Kunis left Mac Culkin because his drug addiction got worst. I hope he goes to rehab if he really is addicted to drugs. He is too young and too talented to waste his life like that.

No, he's not a doper, just looks thtat way when he made the mistake and had one of those ghastly
Chick-fil-A meals one shouldn't even give a hog.

Here's how you know the story is fake: the author says Culkin has "6 months to live". Yeah, well, heroin addiction isn't like cancer, there's no set period of time from when someone gets hooked to when - or if - they OD. Therefore, the idea that you could give a drug addict a set time to live is just absurd.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was a drug addict. His mother and father were not a mother and father to him. His father especially. He was an as$hole to Macaulay. Macaulay was just their money-making puppet.

I find it absolutely shocking, that Macaulay Culkin has ANY need for a "rep" of any type.

WHO KNEW !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I knew that story was bogus the minute I heard it. Being a former child star doesn't mean he's an addict, Culkin has always been skinny. As an adult, he starred in several films, wrote a book, had an 8 year relationship (Kunis) and has had many successes, none of which he had to do given his fortune. Obviously, he has his thinking cap on. Poor guy just needs a sandwich and a hug and he'll be fine.

Same old story. Famous rich kid can't make it as an actor as an adult and turns to drugs. Seriously, the only kid actor I can think of who did NOT go that route is Ron Howard.
