Kit and Patricia parted their ways in 1995

Christian and his siblings had a good relationship with their mother and still have, but the case was not the same and is not the same to date with their father. 

Macaulay, in an interview with Marc Maron's WTF podcast back in 2018, described his father to be physically and mentally abusive. 

According to him, he believed his success was the reason behind his father's resentment because he excelled before he was ten in everything his father tried doing in his life. 

Kieran said they never cared about their father. For them, their mother, Patricia, was the only parent and enjoyed their father's absence. 

He said it was nice and better when their father was not there.

Patricia later married a different man and moved with him to Billings, Montana.
