[VIDEO] UPDATED: Jane Goodall Claims Michael Jackson's Chimp Bubbles Was Abused
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.14.2014

UPDATED: TMZ reports that several people who were witnesses to Michael Jackson's relationship with his chimpanzee Bubbles are denying Jane Goodall's claims that Jackson abuse the ape. People who were with Bubbles on a nearly day-to-day basis claim that Jackson treated Bubbles like a member of his family and that neither he nor anyone around the chimp ever abused him.

The Jackson Estate has also contributed money to the sanctuary where the chimp now lives, as a reflection of how much Jackson cared for him. The sources claim that Bubbles was "almost joined at the hip with Michael" and would mimick him and others at Neverland. He was even Jackson's "plus one" at Jackson's lawyer's wedding.

ORIGINAL: Primate expert Jane Goodall recently told TMZ that Michael Jackson's pet chimpanzee was abused at Neverland and Jackson is to blame. While leaving an event in Washington, D.C., she said that Bubbles was beaten. She wouldn't say who did it, but added that she spoke to Jackson about it and it "ticked him off."

La Toya Jackson's ex-husband Jack Gordon claimed that Michael himself abused Bubbles. He said: "I saw Michael punch Bubbles, kick him in the stomach. Michael used to say, 'He doesn't feel it. He's a chimpanzee. I have to discipline him.'"

Other sources have claimed that instead Jackson actually treated Bubbles like family, letting him eat at the dining room table and giving him access to the fridge for ice cream.

Bubbles is still alive and doing well at the age of 30. He lives in an animal sanctuary in Florida.
