Bubbles the chimpanzee who went on tour with Michael, had to move on when he became too big to deal with. He now lives at the Center For Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida. The owner of the Center made an appeal for Michael fans to sponsor or adopt the ape. Now three Australian DJ’s, Merrick Watts, Scott Dooley and Ricki-Lee Coulter, have paid $10,000 (AUS) to be the chimp’s parents for a year.
He will not move to Australia, but will remain at home in the centre
