Is Macaulay Culkin Addicted To Heroin?

Sharethis Watershed

Recently in the news, speculative reports have been published stating that the star of the Home Alone franchise, Macaulay Culkin is dangerously addicted to several drugs.  Some of his closer friends have said that his drug problem is now completely out of control and he is going to die if he does not get help very soon.  Some of the drugs he is reportedly addicted to are heroin, Oxycontin, vicodin, and percocet. 


Started Using Heavily After Breakup

Macaulay Culkin had been dating A-list celebrity starlet, Mila Kunis, up until about a year and a half ago.  The two had been pretty quietly dating for over eight years leading up to the split.  Not much information was released on the reason for the sudden break up after years of a healthy relationship, but they did say the breakup was amicable and they remained close friends. Friends close to him have said that his drug use increased dramatically following his breakup with Kunis.  Mila Kunis has recently been involved in a media frenzy since she and fellow 70’s Show star Ashton Kutcher became romantically linked last month in the wake of his divorce from Demi Moore.

Heroin Addiction

Macaulay Culkin has reportedly fallen into a deep heroin addiction and is now shooting up several times a day, as well as taking prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin, vicodin, and percocet.  The drug use has caused him to lose a substantial amount of weight and it appears he is now wasting away.  Sources close to Culkin have said that he is using about six thousand dollars worth of heroin each month and has come close to overdosing on a few occasions.

Culkin’s Lawyers Completely Deny Allegations

Amidst all of this controversy surrounding the Home Alone star, Culkin’s lawyers have vehemently denied allegations of his drug addiction.  This is not the first time the child star has been in the middle of drug allegations and he has certainly dealt with his fair share of false tabloid reports in the past.  Culkin’s lawyers are outraged by the claims of his heroin and oxycontin addiction saying that they are completely false and fabricated for publicity.  Culkin himself has not made a statement supporting or denying the claims yet, so everything is still media speculation at this point.

If the rumors are true, Macaulay Culkin is in danger of dying at a young age from the disease of addiction. Today, addiction treatment centers are available to those who want help. We have seen many celebrities his age suffer in addiction and not get help because of money, fame, and the lack of desire to change. We of course, hope the rumors of his heroin and Oxycontin addiction are false like his lawyers claim, but from the looks of it, who can be sure.  It would be a shame to see another former child star end up ruining their lives with drug addiction when they could recover and help so many others find hope.
