Macaulay Culkin is not on heroin.
A statement released on his behalf makes this abundantly clear - and urges people not to believe recent rumors about the former child star, now 31.
The Macaulay Culkin heroin rumor surfaced this week when a tabloid claimed he's basically a depressed, chronic junkie with about six months to live.
Not the case, his rep insists.
The rep says reports claiming Culkin is hooked on heroin are "not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious."
"We beseech responsible media to consider the source and its reputation and to please not perpetuate this destructive, insulting story by pursuing it any further."
