‘Heartbroken’ Justin Bieber’s monkey seized by German authorities: sad?

Justin Bieber

The above photo demonstrates what we’ve all be waiting for from Justin Bieber — a monkey on his back. Oh, just you wait. One day, it might be more metaphorical than literal, and you’ll all be looking back at this moment and clucking your tongues. Or maybe not.

Actually, I don’t think this monkey, whose name is Mally, is even Justin’s any longer. Is that how it works when an animal is seized by customs officials? That’s what happened after Bieber insisted that Mally travel with him to Germany, and of course neither Biebs nor his team bothered to make sure there was proper paperwork when passing through customs. I guess Bieber just assumed that no one would give him a hard time because he’s such a raging international pop star, and now Bieber has lost his pet to German authorities. This is his fault, right? Poor monkey, but I’m not feeling too sorry for Bieber himself. Here are the details from the Mail:

Pop sensation Justin Bieber is “heartbroken” after his pet monkey was seized by customs officials – because the Baby singer demanded Mally accompany him on a long-haul flight to Germany.

Canadian Bieber’s increasingly bizarre behaviour is concerning aides after he insisted Mally travelled on his private jet – even though he had no paperwork to show to customs officials in Munich.

According to sources the 19-year-old, who had travelled from LA to Munich, was “detained for some time” by furious customs officers who demanded to see a health certificate for the monkey – which Justin could not provide.

Mally is now in quarantine and teen idol Justin could face prosecution from German authorities and a £10,000 fine. A source told The Sun: “He and Mally go everywhere together. He will be heartbroken. Justin has been acting like a right diva. He is out of control and lives in an alternative reality to the rest of us.”

The friend likened capuchin monkey Mally, who was given to Justin as a birthday present from music producer Jamal Racshid, to Michael Jackson’s beloved pet Bubbles – who accompanied the tragic singer to a number of concerts. Customs officials in Germany demand to see detailed paperwork from pet owners, especially if the flight originated from outside the EU.

I hate to say this, but why on earth is Bieber’s camp letting him take a monkey on an international joyride without proper paperwork? A pop star’s fetishy pet isn’t worth putting countless animals at risk if the proper immunizations, etc. haven’t been carried out correctly, and without paperwork, there’s no way to prove that. If anything, I just see this as another example of Biebs doing what he wants to do without regard for the well being of anyone else, person or animal.

In other Bieber-related news, the L.A. county district attorney is reportedly quite upset about the recent incident where Biebs allegedly threw a little tantrum, spit in his neighbor’s face, and threatened to kill the dude. According to TMZ, the sheriff’s department is pressuring the DA to prosecute because “Bieber has shown a pattern of disregard for the law, including speeding tickets, fights, threats, reckless driving, drugs and more. Law enforcement sources say it’s a cookie-cutter situation they’ve seen before — small crimes that escalate over time to serious criminal conduct.” Yeah, we’ll see. Despite all the talk of prosecution and a possible 6 month jail sentence last year when Bieber entered into physical altercation with a pap, nothing ever happened then either.

In addition, Bieber and his entourage were spotted visiting Selena Gomez’s house last Wednesday. Here are photos of his black van pulling up to the home. Fame/Flynet reports that Justin tried to give her a puppy (?), but Selena sent them packing with the gift in tow. How bizarre.

    I still can’t with this kid.

  2. bowers says:

    So no rational adult is running this show? He’s on his own and totally screwing up because all around him are toadies and enablers?

  3. dorothy says:

    Again, this immature kid acts as if the world revolves around him and rules are for other people. He’s the male equivalent of a young Lohan.

  4. brin says:

    Ugh…sad? Better word would be pathetic.

  5. marie says:

    this kid is disgusting and should never have had the monkey to begin with, poor monkey. such a little douchewad.

  6. Elceibeno says:

    Entitled, conceited, spoiled little twerp. Yes, he thought that no one was going to ask about the monkey’s papers. This is what fame does to a child.

  7. lisa2 says:

    I really could not believe the monkey story. I thought it was a joke at first. So wrong. Especially since his fans follow what he does. And WRONG for that poor monkey.

    I saw a clip on a show where his mother said he basically doesn’t listen to her at all. And she realized that when she wanted his picture on that book she wrote. He said no and walked away. I find that very interesting especially at the beginning of his happening, they acted as if he and she were super close and so religious. Faith driven. Well that all seems to be changing. and she seems to be wanting a lot of attention too.

    • jwoolman says:

      Justin’s mom always seemed sensible to me when interviewed along with Justin in his younger days. She gave birth to him when she was very young, apparently, and had considered abortion. I think she actually lived at a pregnancy center for a while. Anyway, I saw part of a recent interview where she was fundraising for pregnancy centers because one had been so helpful to her when she needed it. I don’t think she’s another Dina Lohan. But once he turned 18, he had access to his money and she had no legal authority over him. I think she’s just being honest when she says he doesn’t listen to her now. The combination of being a young male that age and having boatloads of money with no strings attached is not a good one. His mom wasn’t a stage mother, he was pretty self-driven from what I’ve heard.

  8. DanaG says:

    Is his 15 minutes just about up I hope so. Someone needs to tell him he doesn’t actually have that much talent and really is just a big joke. Not only did he endanger other animals and people he also could have caused harm to that monkey he is supposed to have loved so much. I hope he doesnt get it back. Justin needs a reality check and someone needs to sort him up wasn’t he created by Usher? He can’t write songs, he doesn’t have a great voice and now he is acting like a Lohan let’s hope he doesn’t go that far down the drain he has started it a little early.

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      I read the Dailymail once in a while, and yesterday they had an article about one of the top music producers/studio head person. He point blank said that he’d give the Biebs three years or less to be a “popstar”. He said the kid’s off the rails, no one can control him, and if it was him-he’d give Bieb a spanking.

      • Amelia says:

        I laughed so hard at that article. The music producer they were interviewing certainly had the right idea – “I’d give him a good spanking,” teehee!
        Someone who thinks it’s a good idea to have a capuchin as a pet certainly deserves it. Hopefully he’ll find a good home in a zoo or nature reserve.

  9. Jane says:

    It’s highly unlikely he is heartbroken. He’s probably pulling an epic sized tantrum because someone finally said a two letter word to him he is not used to hearing: No. He’s such a spoiled little brat of epic proportions.

    • Lady Satan says:

      Well said!

      The only one who deserves sympathy in all this is the poor monkey, now in quarantine. Wild animals are *not* pets and this baggy-pants douche-rocket should not have had it in the first place. Now the poor creature is stuck in a quarantine cage.

      If this no-talent spoiled brat actually cared anything for his animal companions he would have either left it at home in the care of someone responsible, or made damn sure he had all the appropriate paperwork done before he got on the plane.

    • hellena says:

      He is so totally heartbroken, that nobody has contacted the authorities yet. So that poor monkey is still in quarantine, and Bieber doesn’t care. This is a baby monkey, for f*ck’s sake.

  10. vixo says:

    He shouldn’t have had the monkey in the first place. Didn’t he give a previous pet to a random fan?

  11. Gracie says:

    Ugh, he tries so hard. I doubt he’s heartbroken, probably just throwing another tantrum.

  12. Feebee says:

    I don’t get this exotic animal thing. It’s cruel to the animal and dangerous to humans, Good for the Germans for not just shaking their heads and let him walk through.

    Actually ditto for the Sheriffs department, they are correct in leveling the concern over many petty incidents possibly leading to bigger stuff. While this may not happen to Bieber why should he get a pass over it? Maybe they’re as sick of Lohan as we are and don’t want similar disaster on the streets.

  13. Regina Lynx says:

    I hate, hate, hate it when people take exotic animals as pets. They’re wild. They’re supposed to be living in the wild.

    Animals are animals are animals. Treat them as animals, not like toys or humans.

    /end rant

  14. JL says:

    Someone tell customs they locked up the wrong monkey and the little Chimp is still running free.

  15. JessV says:

    Well he has lost the monkey now, most European countries won’t allow individuals to own exotic animals.

  16. chi says:

    Where are the Baby Biebs pictures? I miss them.

  17. JL says:

    Michael Jackson, I can’t stop laughing.

  18. decorative item says:

    What horrid thing would you have had to have done in a passed life to come back as this kids monkey?

  19. Syko says:

    Why does he need a monkey? To spank? What’s up with the fingerless glove? He is so obviously copying Michael Jackson, except for the talent. Ugh!

  20. erika says:

    Kindergartners, question: “Who’s lower on the evolutionary scale, this monkey or Justin Bieber?”

    makes my blood boil and my heart cry when innocent animals are literally wrapped up in a big red bow and handed off to mental inebriates like JB.

    Bigger douche to realize that no one in his ‘crew’ has a clue about traveling internationally (much less domestic, ya can’t breeze through LAX to JFK w/ a monkee). Do you think an EXOTIC ‘pet’ might need some documentation? Do you know what Diehard by the Rules the German folk are?

    Did you ever see ‘Outbreak’? No, nostril wipe, it’s not a movie about YOUR unfortunate boom to fame….

  21. Ellie66 says:

    The Germans need to quarantine Beiber forever!

  22. snappyfish says:

    i’m sure bieber would have turned that poor monkey into a moussed, whining doofus just like him, so I think he got out just in time.

  23. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Best comment by JL does this baby douche realize how big, with little marketing, Michael was in the 80s Michael sold out stadiums of up to 70,000 people for 2 and 1/2 hour concerts (Zeppelin was king of the stadium in the 70s same scale),
    Without today’s wraparound media, and bad taste, this kid would be another local punk wannabee – Oh, that’s what he is anyway.

  24. florencia says:

    Sure, he can’t have children, so a monkey is the closest he can get. Poor animals, acting like entertainment for fools. So sad.

  25. Daisy says:

    I remember when Justin Bieber was just coming out and I met this guy at the beach who said he saw Justin Bieber in the Bahamas and Justin was acting like a complete brat to his mother and even called her a bitch to her face. I found it hard to believe at the time, but now it just seems so apparent that Justin is a little brat with a superiority complex, and he’s been this way for a long time.

  26. lucy2 says:

    He is SUCH a cliche, isn’t he? It’s just pathetic.

    I am really bothered by the way animals are given as gifts in his circle. Owning a pet needs to be a responsible choice, not something you give to a spoiled moron. And him showing up with a puppy as a gift? It’s just wrong.

  27. Hazel says:

    In the first pic, which one is the monkey?

  28. chria says:

    i would just love to punch him in the face right when he’s making that smug look on his face.

  29. Zombie Nurse says:

    His monkey was detained in Germany and no one has made a Sprockets joke yet? No one? Sigh.

  30. Sarcasmo says:

    As Michael K said, they quarantined the wrong monkey!

  31. A Fan says:

    What I find particularly telling is the big picture.

    The tremendous excess, the entitlement, the societal glorification of someone who has done nothing to deserve it (especially a kid), the personal advertising of one’s own buffoonery/immaturity/stupidity, the humouring of a massive ego, and the complete lack/enforcement of boundaries.

    And the really big picture is the business behind it – who can generate the most money in the least amount of time (or at least before they self-destruct or the public spits them out).

    Insert name of a large number of ‘celebrities’, as well as those who think they are ‘celebrities’.

    Ok, rant over.

  32. KellyinSeattle says:

    I used to beg for a monkey when I was a kid. Thank goodness that my parents had better sense than I did. Justin is bugging me more because he always has his eyebrows arched, trying to look cool. I can’t believe the Usher had anything to do with him. Maybe he and the monkey could share a pack of diapers.

  33. Maxx says:

    So I see the LA DA is still handing out empty threats for celebrities….. So basically business as usual for Lohan and Beiber- like they will see any real punishment.

  34. lady mary. says:

    thats what exactly the monkey in that pic is doin ,checkin if beiber really has any brains underneath that 90210 haircut

  35. Grace says:

    The more I hear about this, the more I like Selena Gomez.
    I think it was a set-up relationship that dragged on far too long and now she wants nothing to do with him. She seems very mature and he is a baby.
    I especially love when she said she made him cry on a talk show.
    He seems like the type of emotionally stunted boyfriend who would cry when he didn’t get his way.

  36. andy says:

    Is he getting arrested for spitting on his neighbor? I read over the weekend that his arrest was coming but still nothing.

    I want to see a Bieber mugshot.

  37. nikzilla says:

    That idiot owns a monkey?? Omg

  38. Jill says:

    I saw a video of him oohing and ahhing over a monkey. He looked so happy and reminded me of a little girl.

  39. lisa says:

    he seems to have lost the plot since he split with selena. maybe his mom needs to stop trying to make herself happen and go tell him to sit down and pull himself together.

  40. KellyinSeattle says:

    His mom said she wants to be the next “Bachelorette”. gagging now…

  41. PortlandJan says:

    Justin should thank Germany for removing a potential source of embarrassment. The monkey was the only member of his entourage with a higher IQ than his own.

  42. dorothy says:

    The real question is; which one is the monkey?

  43. Lulu.T.O. says:

    Poor little monkey! He can’t pick Justin’s lice and fleas anymore.
