Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson accused of beating up Bubbles

Michael Jackson has been accused of beating up his chimp Bubbles.

The late singer's pet was reportedly ''being beaten'' while in his car, and a leading chimpanzee expert insisted she tried to intervene when she'd heard about the way he was being treated.

Jane Goodall told TMZ: ''I went to see him and we talked about Bubbles. I ticked him off.

''Bubbles is still alive and he's beautiful, but when he was with Michael he was being beaten ... Chimpanzees belong in the forest. By the time they are seven or eight they are dangerous.''

While Jane didn't directly name the 'Thriller' hitmaker - who passed away in 2009 - as the abuser, the ex-husband of the star's sister LaToya has claimed he saw the beatings first-hand.

Jack Gordon said: ''I saw Michael punch Bubbles in the face, kick him in the stomach.''

The gossip website notes that sources from the singer's camp have denied the claims, conceding there have been reports over the years of the chimp being treated like a king.

Bubbles, 33, now lives in an animal sanctuary in Florida.

m.j. lover and ...

LOL consider the source Jack Gordan how the hell would he know. he's been dead since 2005 and now this is co ming up? And Jane Goodall is another one she's going senile in her old age. MJ loved that Chimp he treated him like royalty. and if he was being hit as they say then how come he learned how to do the Moonwalk?? Just someone else looking for something maybe her old ass needs attention, maybe she should get married and leave the chimps alone. Michael didn't have a violent bone in his body.

Are you fu-king kidding me?? Damn, just last week he was the baby daddy of a 31 year old man. Now he was beating Bubbles and the liar of all liar Jack Gordon was the source? the same Jack Gordon that we all know made his career at BEATING LATOYA and this is the person whose story you believe, REALLY????? All of these years later now all of a sudden Michael is an animal abuser on top of being a pedophile, an addict,gay,a non-sexual being who never had sex with women, and this list can go on!! WHEN WILL ALL OF THESE PEOPLE STOP WITH THESE BOGUS ACCUSATIONS OF WHAT MICHAEL DID OR DIDN'T DO NOW THAT HE CAN NO LONGER DEFEND HIMSELF AGAINST ALL OF THESE PATHETIC ACCUSATIONS!????? ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!
