Chris Brown Reportedly Facing Charges Over Pet Monkey

According to TMZ, hip-hop star, Chris Brown has been charged with the criminal offence of owning a pet monkey without having acquired a lawful permit for the same, warranting a maximum jail time of 6 months.

After the singer posted a short video of his three-year-old daughter, Royalty playing with the baby monkey on Instagram, he received backlash from many fans who warned him about the danger of allowing his young daughter in the vicinity of the animal.

However, Brown, who was quick to dismiss their worries, fell into trouble when some fans took it upon themselves to notify California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, who pursued the case and requested that Brown surrender the pet.

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office has now charged Brown on “two counts of having a restricted species without a permit” and the singer is scheduled to appear in court on February 6.
