Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin was one of the young boys Michael Jackson took an awkward shine to and invited into his Neverland world.
Three of those boys, Wade Robson, Gavin Arvizo, and James Safechuck, have since accused Jackson of sexually molesting them.
Culkin, who rarely does press, has been fairly quiet on his relationship with Jackson, who died in 2009. In a new interview with Esquire, he said Jackson never did anything sexual to him.
“I’m gonna begin with the line — it’s not a line, it’s the truth — he never did anything to me,” Culkin told Esquire. “I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back. The guy has passed on. If anything–I’m not gonna say it would be stylish or anything like that–but right now is a good time to speak up. And if I had something to speak up about, I would totally do it. But no, I never saw anything; he never did anything.”
