Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Chimp Warned Him About Family

Michael Jackson was apparently convinced his chimpanzee Bubbles had an instinct for being able to tell who in his family was trying to live off his fortune.

The late star is said to have barred siblings from his Neverland ranch if the pet did not like them.

Michael reportedly told staff: ''He is a good judge of character.''

A former housekeeper told The Sun newspaper: ''Bubbles often would be a gauge for Michael to decide who should stay and go.''

The revelation comes around the time that the performer's family endure an argument over his millions, three years after his death in Los Angeles aged 51.

His ex-employee said Michael would react to Bubbles response to his various relatives.

He would say: ''They are only after my money.''

Brothers Jermaine and Randy were said to be among those regularly snubbed.

Jermaine recently defected from a family letter criticising the Michael Jackson Estate.

However he still has ''deep reservations'' about the executors.

Jermaine posted a long letter on his twitter account confirming the move.

He wrote: ''I rescind my signature from the letter which was sent to the Estate, and which should never have gone public.''

''I still hold deep reservations about many issues involving the Estate, and I will continue to bring scrutiny and a resolute voice wherever we have cause for concern. But the way to address such matters is through the proper channels and via a private dialogue, not public conflict.''

''In this spirit, I offer this statement by way of extending an olive-branch.''

And Michael was 50 when he died not 51! Another Sun inaccuracy which throws doubt on the rest of the story.

You know this is unreal. I have never heard talk of MJ, making any comments about his family living off of his so called fortune, now that he is no longer with us,Paris, Prince, ex employees and animals are living proof of how MJ felted about his family. Well, I have this statement to offer:HELLO, THE WILL MUST BE A FATE,BECAUSE, WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE THE CHILDREN YOU LOVE, IN THE CARE OF YOUR MOTHER(WHO BY THE WAY, HAS CONTACT WITH THESE SO-CALLED GREEDY PEOPLE,HIS SISTERS BROTHERS, AND FATHER.) I am a person who believes, anything you have to say to someone about how you feel, tell them, not others. Everytime MJ, ran into trouble, his family seem to be by his side. I do believe, there is a website, that lets you know what a person is worth, though MJ's family, may not have earned the dollars that he did, but they do not seem to be broke, or poor either. According to what I read(whether true or false) MJ, pass away, and owed lots of money for different things, his life style. was very expensive; and the lawsuits were high, so what fortune are we taking about. Anything, MJ, would have given his mom, I am more than sure, if she needed to help her husband or other childen/grandchildren, she would be entitled, to use the money anyway she wants.NOW YOU KNOW WHY I SAID I DON'T BELIEVE WHAT'S STATED IN THIS ARTICLE, IT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE,

While I don't doubt that animals have very good instincts about people especially those that are very close to their owners, this "former housekeeper" clearly hand her hand out. Even 3 years after Michael has been gone, the leaches still line their palms.
