Michael Jackson Wanted Pet Chimp To Talk

| Filed under: Michael Jackson

And he paid a lot of $$$$$ hoping he could do it!

Michael Jackson spent thousands of dollars in order to hear his pet chimp Bubbles speak. And he flew in several throat specialist to examine the animal.

His sister La Toya revealed:

"Michael always wanted to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk.

They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me said 'You got to see this - he mimics everything I do'. So Michael starts brushing his teeth and Bubbles looks up and gets a tooth brush and starts brushing his teeth too. Then he wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors 'Can I give him an operation so that I can know what his thoughts are'".

Although doctors warned that the operation could be dangerous, Michael discussed the endeavor with experts for over four years!

Some feel that implanting a voice box into the chimp would not have worked anyway.

"Moving the voice box would have made no difference," said vet, Emma Milne. "Chimps mostly communicate using facial expressions. And the operation would have probably killed him."

Bubbles is now living in The Great Ape Sanctuary in Florida. And we're glad he's got a better life!

  5. 5

    damn he did get good drugs!



  6. 6

    Does Speak and Talk not mean the same thing?



  7. 7

    that is so gross! everything about that is really creepy. i'm glad he died before he could have anything like that done to that animal. any doctor who would do that kind of thing should be jailed.

    Oh my dear jebus…



  9. 9

    I love Michael.

    PS this is REALLY old news.



  11. 11

    ….what MJ needed was mute children, not talking chimps.



  12. 12

    He probably molested that chimp too accidentally thinking it was Jermajesty.

    "And we're glad he's got a better life!"
    -
    You make it seem as though he had a horrible life with MJ! Again, stop acting like U care, Mario!



  14. 14

    He should have hired your mother, right, Porky? I mean after all, she taught a pig to speak.



  15. 15

    PEREZ HILON! your so annoying. "michael jackson and bubbles" the show where you got this information came from premiered THREE weeks ago!. Try to post new things. and stop drawing on pictures of people calling them fat…that last picture u posted of your self (which who gives a fuck) u were enourmas!



  16. 16

    LaToya will do or say anything to get attention!



  17. 17

    He could have taught him sign language like Koko the gorilla. It would have saved him some big bucks, but then, we're hearing this from LaToya, who I've suspected of being bat shit crazy for years.



  18. 18

    I wonder how much it cost to teach latoya to talk..and aren't they kicking their asses now for ever doing it! using latoya jackson as a source for a "true" story is like looking to perez hilton for sense, logic and fairness.



  19. 19

    Yeah he wanted him to talk so he could make pretend he was a little boy and get off on his sick peverted sexual fantasies

    you failed to mention that he was sent there for becoming vicious.
    he isnt living a better life assface, michael treated him like royalty, he, like many adolescent primates hit puberty and became very aggressive and voilent….wow, even bubbles is hotter than you

  22. npc25 says – reply to this

    Re: festus11 – you are truly brilliant for this post



  23. 23

    that picture is cute. what michael wanted isn't so weird there are people who wish to communicate with animals specifically their pets. I watched a video in high school about doctors trying to communicate with animals like teaching them language.



  24. 24

    also bubbles isn't living a better life, michael treated him like his own child, he loved bubbles and gave him the ebst of everything but unfortunately chimps aren't household pets and become very dtrong and aggressive when they get older as we see in the news.



  25. 25

    ANOTHER OLD STORY. W T F.



  26. 26

    Since Michael liked to mess around with little boys, you also have to wonder if he messed around with the chimp! Gross! Such a disgusting child molester!



  27. 27

    That poor animal. Chimpanzees should NOT be kept as pets. It's cruel to the animal. They're wild animals and should be in the wild or at wildlife refuges.
    Re: pinkchik – He IS living a better life, because he's now where he should be, not living in a cage in someone's home. When people raise chimps as children, no matter what they do, they're not treating them well; they essentially rob them of their childhoods, as they're not learning essential skills needed to survive. They become aggressive, are sent away to refuges, and then must learn ALL essential skills. It's a difficult process for them.

    Re: StuntMom – lol u made my day!

    Re: npc25

    It's a fucking monkey for crying out loud!!! Man, that dude is a ledge and all that but he was totally fucked up! Oh wait, my hamster is trying to tell me it needs a piss!!



  31. 31

    Awwww… Michael is TOO CUTE in this pic!!!



  32. 32

    cant yall just let him rest in peace….and were not even sure if he did anything to little boys so why the hell you talkin..



  33. 33

    Re: Hate Low Class People – Do you have proof that Michael Jackson had sex with kids? No. So shut the hell up.



  34. 34

    lies.. lies.. Latoya never talked to NOTW….



  35. 35

    And this has made news because????
    this is only seen as weird because once again it involves michael jackson…
    what about all the human animal comunicators out there, the ones who say they use telepathy to find out what an animal is thinking, are these ok then? but if MJ said he could comunicate with his pet through telepathy that would be a totally different story…
    and actually there has been a long running debate for years about whether chimpanzees and gorillas are able to talk and many believe the only thing that actually stops these kinds of animals from being able to talk is their voice cords, so scientists are constantly looking at ways to see if these animals can be helped along.
    also many chimpanzees and gorillas have been taught sign language, and this is actually a very successfull way for these animals and a human to communicate with eachother… but again, if michael used sign language with bubbles he AND ONLY HE would be the crazy one huh???
    i dont care whether these animals can talk or not, but perez dont make out it was michael who sat there one day and thought, hey i wonder if i can get my bubbles to talk! when in fact alot of time and money has already been put into researching this subject with these animals long before michael even owned bubbles!!



  36. 36

    Really Peres? This is OLD news. And yeah, if I had a pet chimp, Id try to see if there was anything I could do to make him talk. So would lots of people. Its only nautral that people want to know what their pets think. Stop trying to make up a story.



  37. 37

    Re: MJ ROCKS!!! – Bubbles did learn some sign language by his trainer which he used with Michael. There is even some footage on youtube where you can see Michael showing Bubbles something. Very cute.



  38. 38
