Have Macaulay Culkin's troubles resurfaced? Reports claim the actor has relapsed on oxycodone and heroin, and is on a frightening downward spiral. Rumors of his drug use made headlines back in August, amid widely publicized images of Culkin looking gaunt and ill. His reps angrily denied those claims, saying "the report in the National Enquirer that Macaulay Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious." Now a new source says the 32-year-old is in danger. An alleged eyewitness says: “[Culkin] was also taking pills, and if he hadn’t stopped, his heart would have given out. He was in a drugged-up state, but Macaulay clearly knew what he was doing. I’m convinced that he was trying to kill himself. Fortunately, Macaulay wasn’t alone, otherwise he likely would have ended up dead." Paramedics are said to have found him with "blood on him from shooting up. It was a horrible situation and a near OD.” The source claims to know why the Home Alone star is on this downer: “The fact is that his life is at a dead end, his career is in the toilet and he can’t get over Mila [Kunis], who left him because of his drug abuse at the time." The reports are prompting some to fear the worst: “He’s using a deadly combination of drugs,” says Dr. Gregory Smith of LA. “We’re going to see yet another Hollywood celebrity dying of an overdose from a heart attack or respiratory distress.”
