Paris Jackson played footsie with Macaulay Culkin on Saturday.
The 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson posted a photo on Instagram showing her giving a pedicure to her godfather Macaulay Culkin while visiting Manhattan.
“Model? nah I paint hipsters toenails for a living,” she jokingly captioned the photo.
The former child star was only 11 when he befriended Jackson - who died in 2009 - starring in the pop star’s video “Black or White.” The pair stayed friends and Culkin even testified at Jackson’s trial in 2005 that the molestation allegations were ‘absolutely ridiculous.’
“Paris and Macaulay are super close,” a source tells Rob Shuter of naughtygossip. “They hang out together all the time in private and talk at least once a week. After her father died Culkin became like a dad. He gives her advice and she adores him.”
Culkin who became a huge star with “Home Alone” went through tough times as an adult. He was arrested in 2004 for drug possession.
Jackson also had a difficult adolescence. The only daughter of the singer reportedly slashed her wrists and overdosed on pills back in 2013.
“He (Culkin) just wants to make sure Paris is surrounding herself with good people,” the source continued. “He knows what it is like to be a child star and fame is not easy. He wants to make sure that she is doing ok and has a friend that can understand what she is going through.”
