Singer Chris Brown could face up to six months in jail if a misdemeanor charge against his goes through for keeping a monkey as pet without permit.
At any rate, someone reportedly called the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife anyway, and they opened an investigation, only to find out that Brown never got a permit for the animal.
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. People thought the monkey was a danger to Royalty and it belonged in the wild, but Chris wasn't buying it and told everyone to relax.

A similar draw awaits the Swiss this time Down Under, where unlike past year he would be the favourite. "I appreciate that. Federer's haul of 19 majors puts him three ahead of Nadal (16), with Pete Sampras (14) and Djokovic (12) after that.
Authorities obtained a search warrant, but Chris voluntarily agreed to hand over the monkey before his home was raided. The monkey is said to be fine. Here is a video of Royalty playing with the monkey. Chris Brown shot back saying the animal is perfectly safe and everyone should just take a chill pill.
It seems that Chris has managed to bring about his latest supposed spat with the law in California, as he's not exactly been shy about publicising the fact he owns a monkey. "We dropping a mixtape fuck it", Jacquees wrote on Instagram on January 11, while Brown added, "we family so we gone f-k this r&b shit up".
The Heartbreak on a Full Moon singer shares joint custody of the toddler with his Houston-based babymama, Nia Guzman-Amey. While some fans were surprised about the amount of tracks on the album, others were prepared for the news since Chris revealed in October 2017 that he had 800 unreleased songs on his phone.
