It was the time when a lot of things were happening in the life of young Culkin, and perhaps, he needed a friend on his side. But were they only friends?

Culkin’s revelation

Previously, Macaulay admitted publicly that he shared the bed with the King of Pop a “handful of times” at the singer’s Neverland ranch. But he insisted that they were just close friends and added that the singer helped him to cope with childhood fame.

On January 16, now 38-year-old Culkin talked about his relationship with Jackson again, trying to explain it. He spoke on the Inside Of You podcast:

At the end of the day, it’s almost easy to say it was weird or whatever but it wasn’t because it made sense. At the end of the day, we were friends.

Culkin believes that the only reason why his friendship with the iconic singer was perceived as strange or unusual is that of Jackson’s worldwide fame. The actor shared that he didn’t have any friends when he was in school because nobody could understand what he was going through.

He said:

I was a peerless person. Nobody else in my Catholic school had even this much idea of what I was going through and he was the kind of person who’d been through the exact same frickin thing and wanted to make sure I wasn’t alone.

To Culkin, Michael Jackson was a “sweet” and “funny” man who liked to prank call people. Their friendship appeared to be very genuine as the pop star made the young actor the godfather of all his three children.
