Cue the monkey masturbation metaphors coz Justin Bieber’s pet Capuchin monkey, Mally, has been taken away from the 19-year-old performer by customs at Munich airport and placed into quarantine while Biebs faces a possible fine in excess of AU$14,000 for attempting to being Mally into Germany without the required documentation.
As per multiple reports, Mally was confiscated from Bieber on Thursday after the singer failed to provide the correct paperwork. A customs spokesperson told The Sun that ‘a certificate of health’ and other forms of authorisation are needed when bringing wild animals in from outside the EU:
“The animal required a certificate of health and other authorisations. You cannot just land with a wild animal and bring it into the country if the flight has not originated from another EU country and you don’t have the proper paperwork.”
According to The Sun a source close to Bieber said the Mally situation is just the latest diva-like incident from the young, and seemingly troubled, pop star:
“Justin has been acting like a right diva. He is out of control and lives in an alternative reality to the rest of us. He didn’t think about the potential risks of flying a monkey from one continent to another. He and Mally go everywhere together. He will be heartbroken it has been put in quarantine. He seems as fond of Mally as Michael Jackson was of his chimp Bubbles.”
