Over the weekend, Paris Jackson revealed she’s still very much in touch with her late father’s close pal Macaulay Culkin – who also happens to be her godfather.

The 18-year-old took to Instagram to post a photo of herself painting the former child star’s toenails.

“Model? nah i paint hipsters toenails for a living,” Paris penned next to a split screen image of her DIY salon.

In the snap, Macaulay and Paris share a laugh as she spruces up his toenails with a maroon-coloured nail polish.

It’s not the first time this year the Home Alone star has caught up with his goddaughter.

In October, Paris shared a shot of them joking about at Starbucks.

“Throwback to when the best godfather ever drew me,” she mused alongside a portrait of herself which the 36-year-old drew.

In the ’90s Macaulay and the King of Pop shared a close bond. Michael adored the actor so much, he made him the godfather of his sons Prince, 19, and Blanket, 14, as well.

Speaking of their unlikely friendship in 2004, Macaulay told Larry King: “He’s a good friend of mine… I first met him [when] he kind of called me randomly out of the blue. It was just this weird, random thing, he was like ‘why don’t you come over the my house?'”

“The thing is, I didn’t react to him the way most people did. Most people were like ‘Michael Jackson!’ He was a god to people.”

Macaulay also revealed they got on so well because he wasn’t intimidated by his fame.

“To me, I knew he was a pop singer. But beyond that I wasn’t a fan. And I think that’s one of the reasons we connected. I called him a jerk all the time, I called him a fat head.”
