Could Chris Brown face jail time for having a pet monkey?

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

MJ's Bubbles and Biebs' OG Mally.

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.

And it seems that Chris Brown is the latest Tinsel Town resident to hit headlines over a primate - as, according to TMZ, he could be facing charges over keeping one as a pet.

ABC/Randy HolmesIt looks like Chris Brown has a real monkey on his back.and it's gotten him in trouble with the law.

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.

In December, the R&B singer caused controversy after buying a baby capuchin monkey named Fiji for his three-year-old daughter, Royalty. So sadly at the moment Chris no longer has his monkey, but that's not where it ends.

It turns out Chris never got a permit for the exotic pet, so authorities got a search warrant but before Chris' house got raided, he voluntarily agreed to surrender the animal.

Under California law, it is illegal to keep certain exotic species, including monkeys, poisonous snakes, lizards and other unsafe animals, without a permit. The monkey is said to be fine. The case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney, but Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, says this "monkey business" is absurd.

If charged with the misdemeanour offence of having a restricted species without a permit, Chris could face a maximum of 6 months in jail.

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