Justin Bieber

Monkey Detained

by German Officials

0330-justin-bieberAll that monkeying around has finally caught up with Justin Bieber (literally) after officials in Germany confiscated his monkey because Biebs didn't have the proper paperwork.

Bieber arrived at the Munich airport on Thursday and was confronted about the monkey when he went through customs. Since Bieber didn't have the proper documentation for the monkey (and you know how Germans about having your papers in order) they took the monkey into quarantine. 

It appears the monkey was a recent gift from record producer Mally Mall, who tweeted the above photo earlier in the week with a caption, "OG MALLY FIRST PIC WITH HIS POPS @JUSTINBIEBER."

Bieber's track record with pets isn't so great -- he gave away his hamster to a random fan last December and the little guy passed away earlier this month.

it's especially sad because the monkey is probably the only genuine friend he has among all the blood suckers and sycophants surrounding him.

Michael Jackson had a monkey after that he had cancer children and jesus juice with childmolester accusations. Bieber has a monkey, Pot Parties and attempting to be gangster. Wouldn't be surprised if he was being like Michael Jackson not an Icon but trying to emulate Jackson with his perverted acts to sick children. Little Ellen Bieber we hate you so.

I wonder if Biebs and his peeps know that monkeys need special care when living in captivity? Poor little monkey! I hope that someone who actually knows how to care for a little primate is looking out for this one

I hope he hires someone to care for that monkey. Capuchins can live 40-50 years in captivity. If he stops trying to pull a Michael Jackson with the pet monkey, maybe it will go to a place that can care for it and not be given to a fan just for the sake of giving it away. I'm more concerned with the monkey than debating Beiber's image/talent.

Isn't it illegal to have a monkey as a pet in California?
