Macaulay Culkin recently opened up about his relationship with Paris Jackson.

The “Home Alone” star was interviewed by Marc Maron in his WTF podcast (via E! News) and was asked about his close bond with Michael Jackson’s daughter. “I am close with Paris,” he said.

But before Maron could ask any more questions about the 19-year-old model, Culkin asked the host to not pry. “I’m going to warn you now I am very protective of her so just look out. I am a very open book when it comes to things but like with her, she is beloved by me,” he said.

Maron clarified that he’s not looking for any dirt about the “Star” actress. Culkin replied, “I’m just letting you know if we want to start going down that road it’s going to be a dead end you know, but I mean that in the fact that I love her so much.” When asked how Jackson is doing, Culkin said that she’s doing great.

Jackson and Culkin are very close to each other because the 37-year-old actor is Jackson’s godfather. In August, Jackson paid tribute to Culkin on his birthday. She expressed her love for Culkin via a series of pictures and videos on Snapchat.

Culkin was also a good friend of Michael, who died in 2009. Years ago, there were rumors suggesting that Michael sexually abused Culkin when he was still a young boy. But the actor said that no such thing happened. In 2005, Culkin even served as a witness in Michael’s child abuse trial.

During his over one-hour defense, Culkin revealed that he and Michael slept on the same bed especially during their vacations, but he didn’t see any problem with it. Culkin’s parents never saw it as an issue either.

“I’ve never seen him do anything improper with anybody… We didn’t share a bed on a regular basis. It was a casual thing. There were no rigid rules about when or where you should fall asleep,” he said (via the Washington Post).
