Macaulay Culkin Reveals If Relationship With Michael Jackson Ever Got ‘Uncomfortable’


Former child star Maculey Culkin discussed his friendship with Michael Jackson in a new interview with Marc Maron, Consequence of Sound reports.

Culkin claims that his relationship with Jackson, who was charged with seven counts of child molestation in 2003 before being acquitted, was never inappropriate or uncomfortable.

“He was my best friend growing up for a good, fat stretch of my life,” he said, detailing how he first met Jackson backstage at a performance of The Nutcracker at the Lincoln Center. Jackson was with his good friend and future President Donald Trump at the time they met.

Maron grilled Culkin on Jackson’s behavior, and while Culkin admited that Jackson was “emotionally young,” he framed it innocently.

“He enjoyed my youthfulness. He liked being a kid with me,” he said. “It never struck me as odd. I never felt uncomfortable. That was just the way he was.”

He also provided a bit of insight into Jackson’s mindset in his final years. “He didn’t wanna go back home. Everything in his life felt tainted,” he said. “That was what happened with that last trial [in 2005], everything felt tainted. The only thing that was important to him was his immediate family.” Culkin then revealed he’s the godfather of Jackson’s daughter, Paris.

He also discussed his own father. “We didn’t like each other,” he said. “He was a bad man. He was abusive, physically and mentally. I can show you all my scars if you want to. He was a bad dude.” Culkin said his father’s abuse extended to the rest of his family, too, and briefly touched on what forgiveness looks like in a situation such as that.

    This page used to be called grunge report long time ago. Then they changed the name so they can write about other alternative bands from 90’s. Now they’re slowly moving to everything 90’s related with the worst possible clickbait titles. I am not going to unfollow it, but I almost don’t click on their links anymore. It’s sad. Please guy(s) find another model of earning money. Don’t degrade the quality. If I want to read about general news from showbiz world there are so many better portals on the internet. I really liked you because of what you were.

    Michael Jackson could never catch a break. It’s sad that people are still questioning his life and motives all these years later.
