La Toya: Michael Wanted to Teach Bubbles to Talk

7/11/2010 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson spent thousands of dollars on research to see if it was possible to perform a medical procedure on his beloved pet Bubbles that would give him the ability to speak ... this according to an interview with his sister La Toya.

Michael eventually came to realize that any such procedure would be too risky, but not after flying in experts. La Toya told News of the World, "... 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?'"

La Toya says the most Bubbles ever mustered up was the occasional bark or grunt.

Actually I think he has just a bunch of stuid morons working for him. I mean look at some of the stories lately and not just the Mj stories.
and also on the tmz tv show for thursday nite when they were talking about the kids at the airport in florida, the stupid wise crack they made about blanket was just as lame. Was such a childish comment.

Prince clearly HAS vitiligo, you can see it under his arms, hands, etc...blanket looks exactly like young michael, it's his twin, same body type, long limbs, feet, hands. They are his kids.

Crap, another truth MJ told and no one believed him. Prince has vitiligo, you can see it, patches of bright white skin, that's exactly what it looks like and how it starts, no pigmentation, that's why michael jackson looked so white...vitiligo, just as he said!

Can't believe the lies and hate the media threw out over the years about this man! People on here too, post crap (hate) all day long on here, with NO truth or backup to any BS they post.

"love is very peaceful, bring it down a little, love is very peaceful"!

I never watch the TV shows - in my opinion, they just sit there being their annoying selves, talking about nothing.
So fortunately I didn´t see/hear that remark. What was it? They should remember that the MJ3 are CHILDREN!

They were talking about how they flew commercial instead of private and harvey said because they are only getting a allowance now so not enough money to fly private. The other guy said well michael never flew commercial and harvey said thats right or something to that nature. well than anyways another one of the morons said "what if someone asked for a blanket" on that flight. refering of course of a real blanket. they were just making a mockery out of blanket's name. than they all started laughing including the ass harvey. just sad to see them making wisecracks at children is all.

Levin is a joke! as well as everyone in the TMZ tabloid trash can, half of them don't even have a high school education! Levin is a total joke around hollywood, he's a lawyer..HA! All he does is post garbage all day long about celebrities and stalk them all day long! Would love to see the inner circles of their lives!

Jackson was the most popular entertainer on the planet...gave more money to charities than any other. hum, what have they achieved (TMZ morons) lately, other than tabloid trash posting. What a job, huh Levin...looks like your JD - law degree was put to good use (NOT!).

Seriously, does anyone know if TMZ read the posts? I think we are just a bunch of #s in the data base. On another note, Bubbles been with MJ since the Neverland days, wow, Bubbles probably is 25 yrs old. Good for him. Still 0/0 Spain vs Netherlands.

I totally agree Siggisis. It's just sad to see them doing this now to his kids as well. I mean, wth did the kids do to them?
They are innocent bystanders. It doesn't give them the right to pick on them just because of who they are but I guess they feel like it is. so sad.
