'Bubbles': Michael Jackson's songs NOT to feature in 'authorised' movie

King of Pop Michael Jackson's songs will reportedly not be featured in Netflix's "Bubbles". Sources close to Jackson's estate said that the project, penned by Isaac Adamson and tells the life of the late Jackson from the perspective of his pet chimpanzee, is not authorised.

Hence, any of Jackson's materials, especially his music, are not allowed to be featured in the project, reported TMZ.

Another Jackson-related film which is not allowed to use Jackson's music is the upcoming "Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland".

Like "Bubbles", the movie is not authorised and Jackson's estate reportedly will "round up the lawyers" if they hear anything like "Billie Jean", "Thriller" or "Beat It" in the movie.

"Bubbles" will be co-directed by "Thor: Ragnarok" helmer Taika Waititi and "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" director Mark Gustafson.

Jackson bought his chimpanzee Bubbles from a Texas research facility in early 1980s.

The superstar frequently brought the chimp as his companion while travelling, which led to media mockery.
