Culkin, dad have weak relationship

In Brief

January 15, 1996

Macaulay Culkin's relationship with his manager father, Kit, has deteriorated to the point the teen-ager rarely talks to him and could even fire him, the boy's mother claims. "Mack literally hires his father. Mack can fire his father," Patricia Brentrup, 41, says in February's Vanity Fair.

She is battling Kit Culkin, 51, for sole custody of their children, who range in age from 6 to 19. At stake is which parent will control the earnings of sons Macaulay, 15, and Kieran, 13 -- and the 15 percent manager's commission.
