Did Bubbles, Michael Jackson’s chimp, try to commit suicide?

We all understand that chimpanzees are extremely intelligent creatures. If that’s the case, Bubbles may have known how bad it had it living with Michael Jackson.

The Times of India had a story in the never-ending saga of Jackson’s weird (and allegedly evil if the pedo charges are true) personal life. In 2003, when Bubbles was moved out Neverland, he tried to commit suicide. He was rushed to hospital in the nick of time.

How did Bubbles try to off himself? We don’t know.

And it gets worse. Bubbles got into “self-harm” in 2009 after “hearing about Jackson’s death in 2009.”

Bubbles, who is now 35, lives at the Centre for Great Appes in Florida.
