Washington, Mar.15: Michael Jackson has been alleged for punching and kicking his chimp Bubbles at Neverland in order to discipline him.
One of the world's leading chimpanzee experts, Jane Goodall dropped the bombshell leaving an event in Washington, DC, saying that Bubbles was beaten while in the pop legend's care.
She doesn't say who beat Bubbles, but she does say she confronted MJ and it "ticked him off."
La Toya Jackson's ex-husband, Jack Gordon, asserted that the King of Pop used to punch his pet in the face and kick him, TMZ.com reported.
Gordon added that the singer used to say that the chimp doesn't feel it and since he was a chimpanzee the singer had to discipline him.
However, 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. (ANI)
