Online rumors of actor Macaulay Culkin‘s death have been revealed to be a hoax, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Claims about the 34-year-old Home Alonestar’s alleged death began circulating Thursday.
The actor’s reps told The Hollywood Reporter that the news of his alleged death was a hoax.
This is the second time this year that Culkin has been the subject of false death rumors, with his reps having dismissed similar rumors in April.
In fact, Macaulay Culkin has formed a pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band called The Pizza Underground.
As the The Guardian reports, the Home Alonestar’s band includes four musicians from New York’s anti-folk scene: Matt Colbourn,Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer andAustin Kilham. Culkin is credited with “percussion/kazoo/vocals.” The group formed in 2012 and recently performed at Comic Arts Brooklyn, as well as a Lou Reed tribute show at the anti-folk landmark the Sidewalk Cafe in early November.
