The Beatles sang "everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey" on their track of the same name off their seminal album The White Album. Justin Bieber is, however, living the lyric.
The pop star, who has been making headlines as of late for his aggressive behavior, lost his monkey to customs when landing in Munich, Germany this past Thursday on his recent world tour. Customs officials took the animal, named Mally, saying that Biebs didn’t have the proper documents to bring his capuchin monkey into the country. The monkey was a gift from from record producer Jamal Rashid also known as “Mally Mall.”
Bieber's pet monkey was put in quarantine with authorities, a customs spokesman said. No word on whether the monkey and the pop star have been reunited. Bieber plays Berlin tonight (March 31) on his BELIEVE tour, and has four other stops in Germany on this European leg of his tour.
