Is Macaulay Culkin addicted to heroin?
The 31-year-old is, according to a shocking new tabloid report, allegedly using a deadly mix of potent prescription drugs and desperately needs help.
According to the National Enquirer (we know), Culkin shoots up heroin and the powerful prescription painkiller oxycodone and has overdosed once.
Macaulay’s legal team strenuously denies the report, as well as claims that the actor bought thousands of dollars of prescription drugs recently.
According to the Enquirer, Culkin spends up to $6,000 a month on drugs, namely some dangerous painkillers, and his apartment has become a "drug den."
The once golden boy’s drug use is said to have started 18 months ago, amid a declining career and the end of his romance with actress Mila Kunis.
Drugs or no drugs, he's lost a lot of weight in the past year, as evidenced by these gaunt Macaulay Culkin photos published in February.“Macaulay Culkin is hooked on drugs and it’s killing him!” said a source close. "Mac is surrounding himself with junkies and lowlifes. It’s a real tragedy.”
Another close friend claims to have witnessed Culkin’s drug use and said his friends are afraid for his life: “Macaulay Culkin is surely dying."
"He’s addicted to heroin, oxycodone, Percocet and Vicodin. I have witnessed his drug taking, which has escalated over the past year and a half."
“His closest friends fear that he’ll overdose or his heart will explode. If he doesn’t get help and enter rehab now, he could be dead in six months.”
Here's hoping this report is bogus, which it probably is, and in the event that it's not, that Culkin seeks help immediately, if not sooner.
