Michael ‘s pet chimp Bubbles became a star in his own right when he accompanied Michael on his ‘Bad’ tour in Japan, and he subsequently traveled with him to many other countries. Bubbles wore designer and traveled first class, and appeared on TV talk shows. He became the most famous pet in the world, and Michael loved him.
Sadly he became too big to be a pet any longer as his size and strength could have made him dangerous. He was sent to an animal sanctuary, and since Michael’s death a documentary of his life has been made and will be shown worldwide on Discovery’s ‘Animal Planet’ from October 31st.
