Where's Bubbles the chimp?

Posted By on Tue, Jun 30, 2009 at 3:46 PM

Remember Bubbles? Before Michael Jackson had kids, he had a chimp. Fortunately, it wasn't forced to live with Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother. Unfortunately for MJ's kids, it's off to grandma's house they go.

Guess that's not so bad, though -- right? I mean, her kids turned out, um, yeah ... it's bad.

Though, Michael loved Katherine. She was reportedly one of the few people he stayed in touch with in the large Jackson family.

Just keep Joe away from the kiddos, will you, Katherine? He might try to sell them on Craigslist or something.

With all the discussion surrounding the shocking death of Michael Jackson, people have wondered whatever happened to his beloved chimpanzee Bubbles. It turns out, the chimp is alive and well and monkeying around in a Florida primate sanctuary, PEOPLE has learned.

The 26-year old chimp, who lived with Jackson in the late 1980s, has spent the past four years at the Center For Great Apes, home to forty-two chimpanzees and orangutans.

"He's a very sweet and nice chimp, he really is," says sanctuary director Patti Ragan.
