Jacko used chimps as cleaners
Michael Jackson used his pet chimpanzees to clean Neverland ranch, his trial heard yesterday.
The creatures would help the star by dusting, cleaning windows and brushing the toilets, the jury heard.
In a clip of outtakes from Martin Bashir's ITV1 documentary Living With Michael Jackson, the singer described how he got his animals to help with household chores.
'They are very smart. Their DNA is identical to humans when you look under a microscope,' he said.
He also revealed his beloved pet chimp Bubbles was moved to a monkey sanctuary after he became too strong and started to rebel against him - like a teenage child.
