Chris Brown Monkey Business Could Get Him Prosecuted

Chris Brown Monkey Business Could Get Him Prosecuted”

MJ's Bubbles and Biebs' OG Mally.

Chris Brown got himself a pet monkey - but never got a permit to keep her - so now he's sans monkey and could face criminal charges.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says agents seized an illegal pet monkey from singer Chris Brown's home in Tarzana.

In fact, he managed to cause serious outrage among some members of the public last month, when he shared a snap of his three-year-old daughter, Royalty, holding Fiji.

Chris Brown could face legal issues for owning a monkey without a permit.

According to TMZ, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife were alerted of his custody of Fiji after disgruntled fans who saw him post the monkey on his Instagram, sparking an investigation from law enforcement.

This led to the discovery that he never got a permit for the "exotic pet", so the authorities got a search warrant. "In a home environment they become unhappy and can become aggressive".

But he voluntarily gave up the monkey before his house was raided.

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'. His case has reportedly been passed on to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.

According to sources close to TMZ, Chris Brown could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, a misdemeanor, that carries a maximum of 6 months in jail.

Metro.co.uk have reached out to representatives of the singer for comment.
