TROUBLED actor Macaulay Culkin tried to commit suicide, it has been claimed.
The former child star — who’s said to be hooked on heroin and the powerful prescription painkiller oxycodone — nearly overdosed on drugs, according to American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Macaulay was shooting heroin and talking about taking his own life,” a source said.
“He was also taking pills, and if he hadn’t stopped, his heart would have given out.
“He was in a drugged-up state, but Macaulay clearly knew what he was doing. I’m convinced he was trying to kill himself!
“Fortunately, Macaulay wasn’t alone, otherwise he likely would have ended up dead.
“There was blood on him from shooting up. It was a horrible situation, and a near-OD.
“After the incident it was clear that Macaulay needed psychological help, but he refuses to admit he has a problem.
“The fact is that his life is at a dead end, his career is in the toilet and he can’t get over Mila Kunis, who left him because of his drug use at the time.
“The guy is going to wind up like John Belushi or River Phoenix if he doesn’t get himself into rehab.”
