Rumors of Macaulay Culkin's alleged addictions to oxycodone and heroin have been running rampant for months since he was spotted out looking alarmingly gaunt and sickly, and sadly, it appears that things have only been getting progressively worse.
In fact, new reports have surfaced that despite failed attempts from ex-girlfriend Mila Kunis to get him to enter rehab, the former child star's life is so overwhelmed with addiction that he's now even become suicide, and would have successfully ended his life if it weren't for a last-minute intervention.

First a Tupac musical, now Animal House?!
On the 30th anniversary of John Belushi's death, it was announced Monday that his most iconic flick will be headed to Broadway.
Animal House: The Musical will be loaded with talent in and outside Broadway. The score will be composed by the Barenaked Ladies and The Book of Mormon's Casey Nicolaw will direct and choreograph the musical.
Belushi died on March 5, 1982 from a speedball and friend Penny Marshall remembers the late comedian:
I swear, you’d walk down the street with him, and people would hand him drugs. And then he’d do all of them — be the kind of character he played in sketches or Animal House.
We can't wait to see how the flick translates to its Broadway rendition.
Thoughts? Do U think an Animal House musical is a good idea?
