Michael Jackson fans will no doubt remember the star’s infamous pet monkey Bubbles. According to reports at the time, Jackson apparently bought Bubbles when the chimp was just eight months old, and then subsequently started bringing him on tour with him.

One of the most famous instances of Jackson bringing Bubbles along with him was on the Bad world tour in 1987.

Years earlier, however, Jackson was working hard on releasing his sixth studio album, Thriller.

The album was eventually released in 1982, and is still one of the biggest-selling albums to date, selling over 66 million copies worldwide.

It has now been revealed that Bubbles was actually involved in creating the album fans know and love today – but he was interfering with the process a little.

Shortly after Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009, Bubbles was moved to the Centre for Great Apes in Florida.

According to the sanctuary’s website, the Jackson estate “has continued to support the annual care costs for Bubbles at the sanctuary”.

Jackson’s hard work and dedication obviously paid off, as Thriller went on to be incredibly successful.

The singer was also massively passionate about other aspects of his life as well – including being a father.

In an interview long after Jackson’s death, his ex-wife Debbie Rowe spoke about the King of Pop as a father to their two children, Prince Jackson and Paris Jackson.

During the interview Rowe said: “I did it for him to become a father, not for me to become a mother.

“You earn the title parent. I have done absolutely nothing to earn that title.”

She continued: “That is because Michael did all the parenting. I didn’t do it to be a mother … I didn’t get up in the middle of the night, even when I was there, Michael did it all.”
