Macaulay Culkin is said to be addicted to prescription drugs and heroin.
The 31-year-old actor, who is known for his childhood role in “Home Alone”, has been seen by several eyewitnesses using oxycodone and heroin.
The National Enquirer claims Macaulay splashes out almost $6,000 a month on drugs, which friends fear will soon kill him.
A representative for Culkin denied reports that Culkin was in bad health, stating the speculation is “reckless, thoughtless and irresponsible.”
Photos of the former child star show him looking pale and gaunt in New York City. Friends close to the actor blame his appearance on drugs.
A pal reveals, “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 to the point where he needs serious help”.
Insiders said that Macaulay’s drug use became out of control after his split from his girlfriend of eight years Mila Kunis in January 2011.
“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,” the source told the Enquirer.
