Why Does Justin Bieber Have a Monkey?
Justin Bieber received a pet capuchin monkey, Mally, as a 19th birthday present.
Unfortunately, owning a primate doesn’t exactly jibe with Justin’s busy, globetrotting life. Tiny Mally has been stuck at the Munich Animal Protection League shelter in Germany since March 28, when the Biebs failed to produce the proper paperwork to bring the monkey into the country.
According to a customs rep, Justin has until May 17 to provide the paperwork; if he doesn’t, Mally will become “the property of the Federal Republic of Germany.”
Moral of the story: Don’t give a young, jetsetting pop star an exotic pet. We all know how things turned out with the singer’s hamster...
