Justin Bieber performs at Madison Square Garden on November 29, 2012 in New York, the same concert at which two men planned to kill him.

Justin Bieber is having a bad month.

The teen pop star’s pet monkey was seized by custom officials in Germany and quarantined after he arrived in the country, the Associated Press reports. The capuchin monkey and 19th-birthday present, Mally, was taken when Bieber landed at Munich Airport to play a string of concerts throughout Europe. Bieber had brought the monkey to Germany aboard a private jet but had neglected to obtain the necessary documents, including a health certificate, to bring the pet into the country.

“Justin Bieber brought his monkey to Germany, but had no official paperwork with him,” the airport’s spokesman, Thomas Meister, said. “We were forced to confiscate the animal.” Bieber will reportedly be charged with a fine, which could be as high as $17,000, and he will have to pay the costs of the quarantine.

This comes on the heels of Bieber’s bad month, including being booed after showing up late to a concert in London, being taken to the hospital with breathing difficulty, fighting with a photographer and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department considering whether or not to prosecute the “Beauty and a Beat” singer for reportedly spitting on a neighbor. But he seems to be in good humor nonetheless, pranking TMZ on April Fools’ Day by tweeting the phone number of the entertainment website’s tip line instead of the number for the radio show that was interviewing him.

My name is Kari Bagnall and I am the Founder of Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary in Gainesville, FL. We have over 100 capuchin monkeys and are offering a safe, permanent home to the monkey confiscated from Justin Bieber where he could live with other monkeys in a natural environment. Monkeys are wild animals and not ‘pets’ and most importantly, baby monkeys are literally stolen as early as 3-days old from their mother’s arms, you can imagine the horror both mother monkey and baby feel during this forced separation. I am willing to help this monkey in any way that I can. Please have the authorities contact me at (386) 462-7779 - Info@JungleFriends.org Our website is JungleFriends.org. Thank you.

some people...haha. the monkey was a present from a friend. he didnt go and buy it. he isnt turning into micheal jackson, because his head is screwed on the right way. and so what if he is, MJ was a huge star! hes a 19 year old, with a net worth of about $120 million dollars. he is no. 3 on the forbes celebrity list for earnings and #24 for overall earnings. hes done well for himself. his mother was sexually abused for 9 years. they lived in social housing on low income benefits. doesnt that mean that hes changed his life, and hes done some good? yeah, he makes some wacky choices, and maybe some bad ones, but find me a teen star who hasnt!

and also he has the monkey now, its not in quarantine. and also yes, im a huge fan of justins. i get good grades at school, im not a twelve year old girl and im definitely not going to cyber bully a 19 year old boy who i just trying to do his family proud.

It seems he also lost his driving licence again and spit at a neighbour menacing him with death.


With current issues with the wildlife crime syndacates and related exotic pet trade, is there no end to what celebs are free to endorse as stupidity to millions of impressionable kids? Same goes for fur bearing bimbos, they be actresses or society "ladies".  These destructive status symbols are compromising human values, causing enviromental damage and animal hellholes, even more so by being marketed by celebrity in global media, making then little worthy of the adulation that makes them thrive.

@BiebsMSFTS "and also he has the monkey now, its not in quarantine."


Not true. The monkey is still in an animal shelter in Munich. Bieber now has 4 weeks to hand in proper documentation, or the monkey will be donated to a zoo.
