Sleepovers With Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson and Macaulay had a similar upbringing in the fact they were both child stars with ‘pushy’ parents. Therefore they understood each other, Culkin would often visit MJ at his Neverland Ranch for ‘sleepovers’, despite widespread speculation and accusation, Culkin defended his relationship with the King of Pop.

“He was very childlike. He liked doing the things we [kids] did,” Culkin testified about how the singer would interact with him and other children, including his younger brother Kieran Culkin, at Neverland Ranch. “He played with us.” Having Jackson identify with him as a child star was “comforting,” Culkin said.

Jackson asked Culkin to be Paris’ godfather. She¬†was born in 1998 when the actor was 17.
