Chris Brown Faces Jail Terms For Owning A Pet Monkey

FILE - MARCH 14: Singer Chris Brown was arrested for allegedly violating his probation on March 14, 2014 in Malibu, California. He is currently being held without bail. LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 03: R&B singer Chris Brown appears in court for a probation progress hearing on February 3, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. Brown has been on probation since pleading guilty to assaulting his then girlfriend, singer Rihanna, after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009. He has been in anger management treatment program and performing community service requirements but failure to meet probation requirements could be even further complicated by assault charges he and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy face stemming from an incident outside the W hotel in Washington D.C. last October.

While some people have the general belief that a dog is a man’s best friend, others feel the urge to buy monkeys.

Although the interesting creatures can be purchased as pets in many countries, the laws in the United States require an owner to have a proper permit to own the animal. Chris Brown must have missed that part of his monkey manual though.

Chris is in trouble with the law yet again. This time though, the charges stem from the talented singer’s pet monkey. As reported by TMZ, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office is charging Brown with two counts of owning a restricted species without a permit.

The violations carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail. Brown brought home the baby capuchin monkey named Fiji and allowed his daughter to play with the pet on his social media. If you recall, that wasn’t well accepted.

Chris was forced to give up the pet after a horde of people online reported him to the authorities. At the time, which was at the top of 2018, we reported that he would possibly get hit with criminal charges.

Those charges have finally been filed. Breezy is due in court on February 6, and hopefully, he’s only hit with a few fines.
