Chris Brown Could Face Criminal Charges Over Exotic Monkey

Chris Brown Could Face Criminal Charges Over Exotic Monkey

MJ's Bubbles and Biebs' OG Mally.

According to TMZ, the 28-year-old Grammy victor has already voluntarily surrendered his female baby capuchin monkey Fiji, and the case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney.

However according to police, several people took action on Chris and actually notified California's Department of Fish and Wildlife, who opened an investigation on him.

Brown had previously posted a photo of his 3-year-old daughter Royalty holding a capuchin monkey. Because of this, he can face up to six months in jail.

The Loyalty singer, 28, isn't the first pop star to get into a spot of monkey trouble, as in 2013 Justin Bieber's own pet capuchin, Mally, was seized by customs officials in Munich, Germany after he failed to produce vaccination and import papers. Before authorities obtained a search warrant to search his home, however, Breezy handed Fiji over.

A number of people weren't too happy about Chris allowing the animal near his daughter, because they thought it could posed a risk to her. However, Chris managed to avoid a raid on his house, as he voluntarily agreed to surrender the animal.

Sources told TMZ that Brown could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, a misdemeanor, that carries a maximum of 6 months in jail.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos has since said he thought it was "absurd" of the City Attorney to 'spend taxpayer money on investigating monkey business'.

Representatives for Brown have not responded to requests for comment.
