La Toya: Michael Wanted Surgery To Get Bubbles The Chimp To Talk

michael jackson chimpMichael Jackson spent thousands of dollars trying to get throat specialists to make his chimp Bubbles speak, The UK's News of the World reported yesterday.

The singer, who died in June last year aged 50, pestered surgeons for four years for advice on how he could achieve his dream of having a conversation with his primate friend.

"Michael was always wanting to know how to make Bubbles speak and talk. They definitely communicated. One morning Michael called me and said 'You have got to see this - he mimics everything I do'," his sister La Toya told the British newspaper:

"He wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors 'Can I given him an operation so I know what his thoughts are?''"

But the plan was dashed because surgeons said Bubbles might not survive the surgery.
