Macaulay Culkin Still Insists Nothing Happened Between Him And Michael Jackson, And Adds That James Franco Is A Nosy Pest
Don’t feel sorry for Macaulay Culkin, some child stars turn out just fine (eventually), even the ones with supremely shitty parents. While Mack, as he’s known, went through a period of heroin adjacent tabloid drama, he now spends his days positively chilling, according to a recent Esquire profile. He barely works (BY CHOICE!), and spends his time goofing on the internet, smoking cigarettes, chilling with his cats and “keeping his lady fed” which is not a euphemism for butt stuff. The lady in question is his girlfriend, fellow former child actor Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zach & Cody), and Mack says they are trying for a baby. A real one this time! In the interview, Mack (I hate it so much, but he insists) also talked a little bit about his relationship with Michael Jackson, reiterating that nothing sexual ever happened between them. More delightfully, Mack talked about the time he dunked on James Franco for getting nosy with him on an airplane.
After HBO dropped Leaving Neverland on us back in March, it seemed like everyone was quick to pick a side. Aaron Carter initially defended Michael Jackson. And on the other side, radio stations refused to play Michael Jackson’s music. Kieran Culkin is right in the middle.
Kieran spent a bit of time at the Neverland Ranch in the 1980s and 1990s, because his big brother Macaulay Culkin was very good friends with MJ (a sentence that’s never not weird to type). Kieran was recently asked about Leaving Neverland, and he’s got thoughts on the matter, but he isn’t really picking a side or saying too much about it.
