The Escapades of Paris Jackson and Macaulay Culkin

Michael Jackson’s naming Macaulay Culkin the godfather of Paris Jackson seemed like an unusual decision. (The Home Alone star was just 17 and in the middle of a decade-long career hiatus.) But as the King of Pop’s only daughter now tackles the entertainment industry as a model and actress without her dad around, it seems fitting that Mac, who knows the hazards of young stardom, is there to help her navigate through it.

Macaulay Culkin and Paris Jackson go to a jazz club in NYC

Paris, 19, and Macaulay’s relationship is unconventional, you may have guessed. (Hold for the picture of her painting his nails.) However, they looked like a couple of edgy New Yorkers out together on May 1 in NYC’s Harlem nabe. Paris, dressed in tie-dye leggings, met Mac, 36, at his apartment before they made their way to a jazz bar. He was dressed … how he always is, which often freaks people out. The pair, both smokers, stayed out until 4 a.m. — despite the fact that Jackson had to attend the Met Gala just hours later. (Photo: Splash News)

Macaulay Culkin and Paris Jackson cuddle up

For all intents and purposes, these two are family, so it makes sense they celebrate holidays together — or holiday weeks. A few days after Easter last month, she shared this pic, in which she was rocking bunny ears and sitting on the Party Monster star’s lap. (Photo: Paris Jackson via Instagram)

Macaulay Culkin and Paris Jackson’s hat tricks

Apparently their hang time includes multiple hat changes. Paris also posted this shot in which she had on different headwear and Mac seemed to be sporting his favorite fedora minus the flower this time. (Photo: Paris Jackson via Instagram Stories)

Paris Jackson and Macaulay Culkin play footsie

The most famous photo of them to date, however, is the shot of Paris giving Mac a pedicure in December. “Model?” she wrote. “Nah I paint hipsters toenails for a living.” At the time she was visiting NYC, so she was probably at his crazy loft. She later deleted the photo, but it lives on on the Internet. (Photo: Paris Jackson via Instagram)

Paris Jackson and Macaulay Culkin’s portrait session

In October, Paris shared a throwback of a dinner date she had with Mac, who knows what it’s like to make rumors for just living. “Throwback to when the best godfather ever drew me,” she wrote alongside the pic, in which she’s holding up a portrait of herself as Culkin gives it two thumbs up. They’re both true characters — and it’s good they have each other. (Photo: Paris Jackson via Twitter)

Macaulay Culkin plays with Paris Jackson’s dog, Koa

Macaulay Culkin is also “in” with Paris’s animals. On June 12, she shared a photo of Mac, rocking some wild-print pants, playing with her sweet pup, Koa. She captioned the photo with a heart. (Paris Jackson via Instagram)
