Macaulay Culkin Reportedly Drug-Free Thanks To New Girlfriend
Once widely rumored to have been addicted to heroin and oxycodone, Macaulay Culkin is now looking healthy and happy once again.
While 90s child star Macaulay Culkin faced rumors last year that he was in the throes of a gnarly heroin addiction, his new girlfriend is now reportedly helping him get clean. The actor and occasional DJ is now dating Jordan Lane Price, who has apparently been a good influence on him. ''For the first time in years Macaulay looks happy and healthy. Jordan has rescued him from his drug hell,” said a source. “She’s also made it clear that if he starts using again, she’s walking away.”
Although the Home Alone star was never confirmed to be a drug user, his noticeably skinny frame and disheveled appearance led to a National Enquirer report in August 2012 that he was spending $6,000 per month shooting up heroin and oxycodone and “could be dead within six months.” His reps denied the story by calling it “not only categorically without merit, but also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious.” A separate report from later that month also claimed that paramedics rushed to his apartment after he nearly overdosed from shooting up.
In recent months, Culkin has looked noticeably healthier and his pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band could mean that he’s regained his appetite. He also posted a video of himself last weekend to YouTube, doing nothing but eating a slice of pizza for four minutes.
