Bodyguard to the stars Lee Weaver almost had to shoot Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee Bubbles.
The six-foot-four, 294 pounds veteran bodyguard is sharing his outlandish stories from his 20-year career protecting many celebrities, such as Jackson, Lindsay Lohan, Sandra Bullock, Sylvester Stallone, Brad Pitt, Alec Baldwin and Eddie Murphy in his new book Memoirs of a Celebrity Bodyguard.
Although fighting was often-part of the job, Weaver said one altercation he was glad to have avoided was with Michael Jackson’s famous ape.
While visiting Jackson’s Neverland ranch with Eddie Murphy, Bubbles approached Weaver, growling and baring his teeth, he wrote.
Suddenly, the chimp slammed his hand on the bodyguard’s knee. Then, he did it again but harder.
“Now I’m starting to panic…and I put my right hand into my coat to reach for a handgun,” Weaver said.
Fortunately, Jackson intervened and took Bubbles out of the room.
Eddie Murphy joked: “Could you imagine what would have happened if you had shot Bubbles?”

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
