Chimp Expert Jane Goodall

Bubbles Was Beaten

On MJ's Watch

EXCLUSIVE

031314_jane_goodall_launchThe world's leading chimp expert says Michael Jackson's famous pet monkey Bubbles was brutalized at Neverland and she blames MJ.

Jane Goodall dropped the bombshell leaving an event in Washington, D.C. ... saying Bubbles was BEATEN while in Michael's care.  She doesn't say who beat Bubbles, but she does say she confronted MJ and it "ticked him off."

Our photog was clearly caught off guard and didn't ask the circumstances surrounding the alleged beating.  La Toya's ex-husband, Jack Gordon, claimed the singer did indeed abuse Bubbles, saying, "I saw Michael punch Bubbles, kick him in the stomach.  Michael used to say, 'He doesn't feel it.  He's a chimpanzee.  I have to discipline him.'"

Various people in the MJ camp denied the claims, and there are stories that Bubbles was actually treated like a hairy king, eating at the dining room table with MJ and having free access to the fridge for Haagen-Dazs fixes.

FYI -- Bubbles -- now 30 -- is alive and well  ...  living in a Florida animal sanctuary.

Janet's song "Black Cat" was not about a cat at all. It was about Bubbles massive dumps she kept stepping in at Neverland. But calling the song "Black Sc at" was against the law back in the day.

I think bubbles was MJ's one and only lover.... the beatings probably weren't the worst of what he suffered in that lunatic's world.

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

Not surprising.
Anybody that could do what this sick noseless pedophile did to children is certainly capable of pretty much anything.

oh really     

What a load of cr@p.
In her last interview regarding MJ she had said that she told MJ she didnt like to see Bubbles dressed in people clothing and she was angry with MJ because she had asked him to write a song , much like WE ARE THE WORLD that would benifit wildlife projects , and he never did it.
Now it morphs into this , after he is dead.
Shame on her.
And Latoya husband was a known s***bag who happened to be beating on her.
