The National Enquirer, definitely known as one of the most trustworthy sources of news in the modern age, is worried about Macaulay Culkin. And not because he's been stranded home alone with two astonishingly dumb burglars (sorry, we had to) but because they're convinced that he's addicted to heroin. Which, y'know, would not be a good thing! Culkin's camp, on the other hand, is vehemently denying these claims, saying that the rumors are "impossibly and ridiculously fictitious," and that he just looks like he's an extra on Breaking Bad for normal, not-addicted-to-heroin reasons.
Despite this, however, the National Enquirer is sticking by their story - and even adding to it. According to Gawker, editors for the gossip rag and/or mag released the following statement on their website:
The NATIONAL ENQUIRER hopes the cover story on its latest issue, “Home Alone’ star Macaulay Culkin Addicted To Heroin – Only 6 Months To Live!” will act as a dramatic and much-needed wake-up call to the 31-year-old actor.
Our advice to Macaulay is to seek professional help to avoid the same tragic fate of other beloved celebrities, including Whitney Houston who died earlier this year.
We believe that the former child star should be doing everything he can to get the treatment he so desperately needs – and which could have saved the life of his friend Elijah Rosello.
Her family confirmed to The ENQUIRER that she did drugs with Macaulay before her drug-related death in March.
Should Macaulay’s representatives continue to deny The ENQUIRER’s accurate and detailed report, we are ready to offer him the opportunity to take a blood test administered by an independent medical lab.
It is a fact that as The ENQUIRER tracked Whitney Houston’s descent into her drug hell, she refused to admit she had a problem – and Whitney was represented by some of those people now denying Macaulay’s potentially deadly problems.
The ENQUIRER editors would hate to see Macaulay end up like Whitney.
So far, Culkin's camp has not commented on the new statement.
