National Enquirer Challenges Macauley Culkin To A Drug Test
Tabloid Not Backing Down from Claim He's an Addict
The National Enquirer is not backing down from its claim that Macauley Culkin is a drug user and has challenged the former Home Alone star to a drug test to prove it.
Earlier this week, the tabloid paper made headlines with a report stating Culkin was a severe heroin and oxycodone addict whose life was in danger who may have "only six months to live" if he doesn't clean up his act.
Culkin's publicist fired back saying the report was "false" and "insulting" and urged "the responsible media to consider the source" when it came to the Enquirer's story.
Yesterday, however, the Enquirer threw down once again. Not only did its editors challenge Culkin to take a drug test administered by an independent third party, they released the name of a close pal of Culkin's who recently died of an overdose.
"We believe that the former child star should be doing everything he can to get the treatment he so desperately needs," read the statement, "and which could have saved the life of his friend Elijah Rosello." According to the paper, Rosello's family confirmed to its editors that Rosello had used drugs with Culkin before her untimely death."
"Our advice to Macaulay is to seek professional help to avoid the same tragic fate of other beloved celebrities, including Whitney Houston who died earlier this year."
So far, no word back from camp Culkin.
