NEW YORK, Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Macaulay Culkin's publicist is denying a tabloid report that the U.S. actor is battling an addiction to heroin and prescription drugs.

The National Enquirer said the 31-year-old former child star of "Home Alone" only has six months to live, but Culkin's representative told E! News Wednesday the report is "not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious."

"We beseech the responsible media to consider the source and its reputation, and to please not perpetuate this destructive and insulting story by pursuing it any further," the publicist said.
