In 1985, Michael rescued a 3-year-old chimp and named him Bubbles. The two were inseparable for years.

Yea, he was pretty young when he lived with Michael. Chimps live 50-60 years, but as they grow to adulthood they are dangerous to have as pets, so most of them end up in animal research or sent to live in cages in sanctuaries, some of which are a little dubious. It's really pretty sad for the chimps. I hope Bubbles is at a good one.

Poor Bubbles. He'll miss his old pal. I've read that Bubbles is thriving in a sanctuary since Michael gave him up, but that Michael and his kids would still visit him.
