Chris Brown, 28, is reportedly in trouble with the law... again.
"Chris Brown posted something on Instagram in December and showed a picture of his daughter with the monkey and said it was his pet", an officer from the Department of Fish and Wildlife told Page Six on Friday, January 12.
Some people took the issue a step further and notified the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife about Chris Brown harboring the animal.
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. The baby capuchin monkey, named Fiji, was the cause of backlash from people who thought it belonged in the wild.
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.
As cute as Chris Brown's pet monkey is, it's definitely been attracting some unwanted attention to Chris' life.
The monkey business comes just after Chris and singer Jacquees, 23, announced they've joined forces for a joint mixtape.
His longtime lawyer Mark Geragos told the US gossip site that he could not believe law enforcement officials had dealt with his client so harshly. Chris just dropped his album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, late past year, which consisted of 45 tracks. "Now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity".
Brown could face a misdemeanor charge carrying a potential six-month jail sentence. According to Foy, the case was handed over to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.
