He tragically passed away just over a year ago, and Michael Jackson had some peculiar ideas as to how to communicate with his pet chimpanzee ‘Bubbles.’

According to Jacko’s sister LaToya Jackson, the “Thriller” singer tried to find ways to get Bubbles to talk to him.

LaToya explained, “He wanted to give him vocal chords and asked doctors ‘Can I give him an operation so that I can know what his thoughts are?’”

“The operation would have probably killed him,” she added, also noting that Michael spent thousands and thousands of dollars flying ape experts in to consult with them.
