Chris Brown Forced To Give Up Pet Monkey; Could Face Possible Charges

Chris Brown can't monkey around anymore.

Chris Brown took heat last month after posting a picture of his 3-year-old daughter Royalty holding a baby Capuchin monkey named Fiji.

Supposedly, a number of people made a decision to notify the California Department of Fish and Wildlife regarding the baby capuchin named Fiji that the singer got three months ago.

Are you surprised Chris Brown might be spending time behind bars for getting a monkey as a pet?

The Loyalty singer, 28, isn't the first pop star to get into a spot of monkey trouble, as in 2013 Justin Bieber's own pet capuchin, Mally, was seized by customs officials in Munich, Germany after he failed to produce vaccination and import papers.

Police now say that several people told the California Department of Fish and Wildlife about Fiji and they opened an investigation.

Walmart said Thursday that it is closing more than 60 of its Sam's Club stores across the US - including its Morrisville location. The Walmart official said it was too soon to know how many jobs would be eliminated with the Sam's Club closures.

Brown reacted with a "chill out" message at the time, TMZ reported.

Captain Patrick Foy said the clip prompted a half-dozen calls to the wildlife department from concerned people, and that Brown had agreed to cooperate.

The report states that Brown didn't have a permit to own the exotic animal and that the star voluntarily surrendered the pet after authorities were granted a search warrant for the singer's home.

Fiji was sent to an undisclosed facility. News, "We are confident that the City Attorney has more pressing problems than monkey business".

The case has been turned over to the L.A. city attorney, TMZ reported.

According to law enforcement sources, Brown could be charged with a misdemeanour, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail.
