'Home Alone' star Macaulay Culkin testified that Michael Jackson had his master bedroom rigged with an alarm at his Neverland ranch where he allegedly sexually abused little boys.
Culkin was a close companion of the 'Thriller' singer in the early 90's and told a court in 2005 that MJ had rigged an alarm in the walkway which led up to the room.
This claim checks out with the one made by Jackson's accuser James Safechuck in HBO's documentary 'Leaving Neverland,' where he speaks of such an alarm system.
Culkin, who is now 38 years old, had testified in the defense of the late pop icon who was subsequently acquitted of all charges of sexual abuse and molestation in 2005.
As reported by The Sun, Culkin shared with the court, "There was like a walkway kind of thing, where if somebody was approaching the door, it would kind of like ‘ding-dong, ding-dong. When anyone would approach the room, yeah, you’d hear this kind of—soft kind of alarm, like ‘ding-dong’ kind of thing."
Culkin also shared with the court that he had slept in MJ's bed around 10 times "at the most." He also revealed that he had stopped going to Neverland regularly after turning 14 which is the same age that Wade Robson, the other accuser in the HBO documentary, and Safechuck claim the abuse stopped.
The actor also shared that he started to visit Neverland again at 17 but never slept in Jackson's bed. He shared, "When I started coming back again, I found myself just not sleeping in bed. And I’ve always kind of fell asleep in the guest units ever since then." When he was asked why, he responded saying, "Because I enjoyed my privacy a little bit more."
In 1993, when Michael Jackson was first accused of child molestation, Macaulay Culkin shared that MJ called him up and said, "Don’t worry about it. I just need you to be my friend right now."
Culkin has always maintained that MJ never sexually abused him.
