Justin Bieber's pet monkey detained in Germany - See photos
Justin Bieber's pet monkey was detained last week in Germany and put in quarantine after the singer landed in the country with the monkey, an official told The Associated Press on Saturday, March 30.
The 19-year-old singer arrived in Munich last Thursday and when he went through customs, he did not have the documentation necessary to bring the capuchin monkey into the country. The animal had to stay with authorities, a customs spokesperson told the wire service.
Bieber performed in Munich on Thursday and is set to have a show in Vienna, Austria, on Saturday, March 30. It is unclear when Bieber first got the animal.
However, it appears the singer has been reunited with his pet and he posted two photos of himself with the monkey on Saturday. One picture includes the monkey snuggling up with a stuffed animal.
"Kickin it with og," he wrote in one caption for an Instagram photo of himself with the monkey.
Earlier this week, Bieber made headlines when a neighbor in the gated community in Calabasas called the police to report that he had a confrontation with the singer and accused Bieber of misdemeanor battery and of making threats.
"I'm young and I make mistakes. That's part of growing up," the 19-year-old singer said in a recent interview with Us Weekly. "I mess up sometimes. It's part of growing up."
