DailyBeast: Weirdest Celebrity Pets

Michael Jackson’s Chimp

Bubbles the chimpanzee was Michael Jackson’s constant companion in the late 1980s. In a videotaped interview, the eccentric singer stated that his pet would use his toilet, help him clean, and used a spoon and fork at the dinner table. Jackson also allegedly said that he and Bubbles shared a bed in the same video. But their honeymoon period ended by early 2002, when Bubbles was removed from Jackson’s Neverland Ranch because he became too aggressive. The following year, a depressed Bubbles reportedly attempted suicide, according to The Telegraph. But Bubbles is ok now and currently lives at the Center for Great Apes in Florida, where he spends his time painting and hanging out with other chimps. According to his trainers, he could easily live to age 60. Upon Jackson’s death, the chimp’s trainer told The Telegraph, “Bubbles definitely missed him when they parted and will miss him now.”
