Patricia Brentrup Personal Life
She married Kit Culkin in 1974 and lived with him until 1991 when the couple parted ways after seventeen years of living together. Their union, as they never got married, made them parents to seven children – Shane in 1976, Dakota in 1979, Macaulay in 1980, Kieran in 1982, Quinn in 1984, Christian in 1987, and Rory Culkin. Their second-born son Dakota Culkin, however, passed away in 2008 in a grisly car accident.
The Culkin family is a family of thespians. Kit is an actor and former manager who knows the ins and outs of the trade. Patricia is also an actress best known for her role in Home Alone. Their children, therefore, had the example already set for them. Macaulay alone made it the biggest in Hollywood. The Home Alone movies grossed millions of dollars and decades later continues to rake in money.
The duo called their union off after claims from Patricia that Kit had anger issues, a rocky relationship with his sons, and was unfaithful. In his past, Kit had been married to Adeena VanWagoner, and even had a child together named Jennifer Adamson who unfortunately succumbed to a heroin overdose in 2000. After their separation, the couple had a court tussle as to who would retain custody of Macaulay, to which Patricia won.
She would later tie the knot with Mart D. Cox and the two currently reside in Billings, Montana. Mart had previously been married and had a cold named Jara Cox who became Patricia’s stepdaughter. Kit, on the other hand, lived with his girlfriend Jeannette Krylowski until her passing in 2017.
Patricia was once sued by her neighbors for $80,000,000 after a fire broke out from her house in a flat in December 1998 and as a result of its handling would claim the lives of four people and injure several others. It was established that the fire originated from the Manhattan flat when a flame caught a dried-up Christmas tree. The Bentrups did not close the door nor contain it thus smoke penetrated the entire building.
