Justin Bieber Monkey Drama Continues (Recap)
The pop star received the monkey, then 14 weeks old, as a birthday gift (he turned 19 on March 1) from producer Jamal Rashid (a.k.a. Mally Mall), who has worked with 2 Chainz, Yelawolf and more, according to his website's bio.
A month (and many Instagram photo shoots) later, Mally was seized by German officials at the Munich Airport after Bieber could not provide the proper documentation for bringing the animal into the country.
Since, she's been reportedly safe and sound in a Munich animal sanctuary, according to Germany's Spiegel Online, which also revealed that, while the capuchin was "in good spirits," she was also "constantly clinging to a toy stuffed cat."
Now, Bieber has four weeks to provide as of mid-last week to get the correct paperwork to retrieve Mally from German authorities. If he doesn't, it's unclear what exactly will happen to the monkey, but British tabloid The Sun has offered to help transfer her to a British zoo — The Monkey Sanctuary, located in Cornwall (Southwest England). - A lot more.
