Kieran Culkin Addresses Allegations Against Michael Jackson

Kieran Culkin is speaking out in response to the allegations made against Michael Jackson in the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland.

The 36-year-old actor spent time with Michael when he was a child as his older brother Macaulay Culkin was very close with the late singer.

Back in 2003, Michael gave an interview and talked about his time with Kieran.

“I have slept in the bed with many children. I sleep in the bed with all of them,” Michael said in the 2003 interview. “When Macaulay Culkin [was little], Kieran Culkin would sleep on this side and Macaulay Culkin on this side, his sister is in there. We’re all just jammed in the bed.”

Now, Kieran is being asked about the claims made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck in the documentary.

“The only thing I can say is that I can’t really say anything and the reason for that is I can’t be helpful to anyone,” Kieran told The Guardian. “To me, it seems like there’s two sides to this thing and because I can’t be helpful on one side or the other, anything I say and anything that gets put out in print could only hurt somebody and there’s already a lot of really hurt feelings.”

“There are already a lot of people who are in a difficult position and if I contribute in any way, it’s just going to hurt someone because I can’t actually help,” he added.
