Sister's death has left the Culkins devastated

MACAULAY CULKIN and his siblings are "absolutely heartbroken" following the death of their sister DAKOTA, and are struggling to come to terms with the tragedy.

The 29-year-old - the Home Alone star's elder sibling - stepped in front of a car in West Los Angeles last week, and suffered a massive head trauma. She died the following day.

And the actor and his other brothers and sister are still reeling from the accident.

Emily Gerson Saines, who manages the star, and brothers, Rory and Kieran, who are also actors, says: "They're heartbroken. That I can tell you.

They're just absolutely heartbroken."

The three Culkin brothers, who were working on forthcoming projects when they heard of the tragedy, have put their work on hold temporarily to deal with the death of their sister.

The family also includes brothers Christian, 21, and Shane, 32, and sister Quinn, 24.
