Justin Bieber doesn’t want his pet monkey back, got a new tattoo instead

Justin Bieber

Here’s a new photo of Justin Bieber’s 11th tattoo, which is of a Japanese Koi fish on his left forearm. According to London tattoo artist Luca Ortis (via Ace Showbiz), the “Koi fish tattoo is a symbol of courage and determination. It’s an ideal symbol for someone who wants to show that they are strong and have overcome problems.” That sounds about right coming from Bieber, who probably feels like he’s being persecuted after his recent public temper tantrums and after those mean old German authorities confiscated his pet monkey, Mally, on April Fool’s Day.

Now that Bieber has Selena Gomez back, however, he’s no longer interested in the monkey. If you’ll remember, Biebs didn’t have the proper papers for Mally and then threw a fit and left the country after the capuchin monkey was seized while Mally was left clinging to toys in a shelter. Officials proclaimed that Bieber had a month to produce papers for this poor little guy who had been taken (as a birthday gift to Bieber) from his mother at the age of nine weeks. To this date, Mally remains alone (with handlers but away from other monkeys) in quarantine at the German shelter, but now Bieb’s team has finally contacted the shelter to say he doesn’t want the monkey returned to him. Really:

Justin Bieber has allegedly decided to give away his pet monkey Mally instead of rescuing it from a Munich animal clinic. German authorities say the teen star doesn’t want the Capuchin back after it was seized by customs officers from a private jet on March 28 and placed in quarantine.

They say his management team in New York contacted them this week asking if they could find a ‘safe and sheltered place, or a zoo’ for the lonely creature. The star and his entourage had no paperwork or health certificates to bring Mally – just a few weeks old – into the country.

After a night spent at an airport quarantine centre, Mally was moved into the care of vets at a clinic in the city. “We have to discuss now the way forward with customs officials and other responsible departments,” said a clinic spokesman. The statement from 19-year-old Bieber’s people in New York thanked the Munich authorities for the “caring support” offered to Mally.

Franz Bohmer of the Bonn Federal Office for Nature Conservation said: ‘So far no papers for the monkey of Justin Bieber have been submitted. If he submits a written disclaimer, we can accommodate Mally in a welfare family group in a zoo.”

Authorities in Germany have given Bieber a deadline of May 17 to either claim Mally – and pay thousands of pounds towards his upkeep – or to send a letter saying he no longer wants him.

Karl Heinz Joachim, the boss of the animal centre where Mally is living, said; “The baby monkey needs company and to be with other monkeys at this crucial age in its life. There are a great many suitable places that have offered to take Mally and integrate him with their own capuchin monkeys where he would be much more happy with his own kind.”

He added: “A baby monkey was never going to be suited to be on a world tour even if he is travelling by private jet. He should be out in the wild climbing trees and learning from other monkeys if he isn’t to have serious psychological problems later in life.”

[From Daily Mail]

Unfortunately, the damage has already been done to Mally’s psyche because capuchins usually remain with their mothers for at least year, and the little monkey was swept away on a world tour before being left to languish by himself in a shelter. It looks like Mally will eventually go to a zoo where he can hopefully acclimate to life with other monkeys, but it’s sad that Bieber just doesn’t give a crap.

Here’s something truly disturbing from Justin’s Instagram account — a drawing of Bieber cuddling up to a topless Belieber. No doubt, this is a great girl … just like Anne Frank. How revolting.

    God, he’s such as asshat!

  2. Brown says:

    *blood. boiling.*

    Trying to remind myself that being taken from this sh*tdick is probably the best thing that could ever happen to this monkey.

    • Liv says:

      That’s true and the only good part of the story. It’s so heartbreaking that he dragged this poor baby monkey around the world. I hope Mally gets to live with other monkeys as soon as possible.

    • booboocita says:

      The pic of the poor thing cuddling up to a teddy bear in his sleep is breaking my heart. He just looks like he’s dreaming of mommy. Capuchins are social creatures; the thought of the baby languishing in a cage without a mother or community to care for him is killing me. My eyes are tearing up, and I’m at work. ARGH.

    • karmasabiatch! says:

      This little SOB…I just can’t with him any longer.

      Another celebutard who thinks pets are throwaway, disposable items instead of wonderful little creatures with thoughts, fears and feelings. I’ve never liked JB, but this confirms my belief that he’s a sociopathic little bastard.

      For shame. :(

  3. Amelia says:

    He’s the one who belongs in a zoo. Especially since he seems to have major issues wearing human clothing and keeping his diaper up.

  4. blannie says:

    I can take a lot from Justin being young and immature, but this crosses the line. Animal cruelty is inexcusable at any age and this is animal cruelty at its worst. UGH. I hope his young female fans really make him pay for this.

    • nannan says:

      where is the cruelty? it was given to him and he gave it to a shelter where it will be taken to a sanctuary… he’s doing good by the monkey. you people are insane.

      • OriginallyBlue says:

        He didn’t give up the monkey it was taken from him because he didn’t have the papers for him. The only reason the monkey is even going to a zoo is because this selfish little brat can’t be bothered with it any more. It has nothing to do with what is best for Mally.

      • Juliette says:

        The cruelty was when he decided to take it from its mother at only a few weeks old & took it with him on a world tour.

        The cruelty was when he abandoned it because it became a problem for him. IMO, an animal is a lifetime committment. When you take on that responsibility you have the obligation to provide the best life you can afford for that animal and to always do what is best for defencelss creatures.

        You don’t take an animal away from its mother that early and then dump it when it becomes inconvenient. Take a look at animal shelters, they are full of animals that became “problems” for their owners. Disgusting.

        Everything else I would give him a pass on. He is young and growing up and figuring stuff out but not this.

      • Emma13 says:

        The first bit of cruelty was taking the monkey from it’s mother at such a young age. I do not blame this on Justin though seeing as it was a gift. I think the cruelty part on JB’s end comes in when he abandoned the poor thing. If he had taken good care of the monkey I’d still be mad about taking him away from the mother, but at least he would have had a good home. Unfortunately that was not the case and at least he is being looked after now by trained professionals.

      • Jacqueline says:

        Nannan? Are you insane?? That poor animal was ripped from its mother long, long before it was even weaned and then he tried to sneak it into the country and abandoned it. You are an idiot. The only point I can concede is that Mally is better off now than with Beiber, but the roundabout way that he arrived there is terrible. Stupid, punk-ass kid.

      • pop! says:

        How can you look at the picture of that monkey clinging to a teddy bear because it’s been ripped from it’s mother to amuse Justin Bieber and NOT see cruelty? It’s like the experiments where they replace the monkeys mother with a wire sculpture. I will never understand beliebers/his defenders. So out of touch.

    • J. says:

      I agree that this is cruel, but “animal cruelty at its worst”? Come on.

      I dislike this dickhead as much as the next person, but this is like….middle-ground animal cruelty. I can think of many acts that are much, much worse.

  5. paranormalgirl says:

    Just when I think I can’t dislike this kid any more.

  6. Dutchy says:

    I am not one to hate, but Justin really brings it out in me. It’s so sad to read about little Mally. That dumbass only seems to care about himself. People like him shouldn’t be allowed to have pets!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I agree. First, I think it is horrible to try and domesticate an animal that psychologically can’t deal with it. Secondly, I can’t believe that neither he nor his handlers thought about the PREPARATION that is needed to bring an animal from one country to another.

      Surely he has people working on his tour who have actually, you know, worked on a tour before. You can’t even bring dogs into many countries without having them be quarantined for MONTHS because of disease control.

      No one thought to look into this before traveling internationally with a freaking monkey???????

    • Juliette says:

      And let’s not forget about the hamster that he gave away to a fan at a concert that died about a month later.

      He’s as bad as Paris Hilton, using animals as accessories. Disgusting.

  7. Eleonor says:

    That poor monkey.
    I had my stupid moments in life, but even then I was ready to have an arm broken to prevent my pets from pain.

  8. pop! says:

    He is a disgusting, deluded, narcissistic martyr. He is disgusting.

  9. Merman says:

    That dumbass and the other dumbass who gave him the monkey in the first place >< .

  10. Krissie says:

    Mally is so cute! This makes me sick to my stomach. Justin is insufferable. I want to flush him down the toilet. Ugh.

  11. RobN says:

    The real lesson from this story is to not buy animals as gifts for other people. Monkeys are a pain in the ass pet and require a huge commitment of time and effort; I don’t really judge him for not wanting a pet he never asked for, but finding it a proper home would have been the responsible thing to do.

  12. Ms.Smurf says:

    This is disgusting. Way to show the world that you don’t give a crap about anyone or anything that doesn’t benefit you.

    Poor Mally, that was a cute monkey. I hope he’ll be better in a zoo, where they won’t abandon him just because od a little paperwork….better for him. Hope he fins a surrogate mother to baby him like he should’ve been.

  13. Princess says:

    Wow. I usually just read stories and keep it moving but this really made me tear-up. That poor little monkey – that picture with the monkey cuddled up with the teddy bear just tugged at my heart strings. How someone can just discard a pet like that, just wow.
    I really do hope that monkey finds some stability.

  14. Buckwild says:

    That last pic – so a fan made that and Justin put it on his Instagram? Wtf? This combined with that weird fan chest grabbing photo makes me wonder what the hell is going on…

  15. claire says:

    I hate this dude. That’s all. Total hate.

  16. Lindy79 says:

    That picture with the Teddy…

    sniff *I…have something in my eye*

    I know he hasn’t done anything evil in comparison to some but the fact this gobshite makes millions and has stupid little cretin girls screaming for him despite being a completely disgusting, narcissistic, selfish, knob-jockey makes my blood boil.

  17. A says:

    This is the reason I’ll never ever support him in any way. DISGUSTING behavior!!

  18. JL says:

    Good for the sweet little monkey.

    Now someone please flush this asswipe, because unlike the little monkey he is expendable.

    P*sses me off to all extremes when people get pets, much less kids and treat them like accessories one can use and lose so easily.

    Selena Gomez is a straight up idiot if she sees him treat an animal this way and even lets him anywhere near her.

    No respect for him and if it keeps up no respect for her.

  19. nannan says:

    im sure justin didnt snatch the monkey from its mom. he probably bought it from the person who did. letting the shelter keep it is the humane thing to do. he actually saved it’s life.

    • AmyR says:

      So putting money into the pocket of the person who swiped the monkey from its mom (thus financing said person’s unethical activities) is an honorable thing to do?

    • JL says:

      Ok nannan Beiber;

      He didn’t snatch it but he bought it knowing full well how old that baby monkey was…

      He didn’t give that monkey anything, the monkey was taken from him. If anything he failed to provide basic needs and papers for the little guy.

      Beiber was “playing” Michael Jackson and when the game got to be no more fun he simply quit playing.

      NO MORE, no more defending these little asswipes and calling yourself enlightened and / or PC.
      You nannan are part of the reason dickshit thinks it’s ok to act this way.

      Hhehehe think that’s funny. Well actions have consequences and like most of your kind sooner or later (when mommy and daddy quits paying or your luck runs out) there you’ll be lost and alone wondering why the society you helped dismantle and disrespected isn’t helping you.
      Oh how I live for that day,

  20. Jillian says:

    what a fckn douche. poor monkey. lets hope this jackoff never has kids.

  21. JM says:

    If reincarnation exsists, please make this numnut come back as a pet cappuchin monkey of another self entitled, selfish “star”.

  22. Woom says:

    I don’t care for Bieber and it was wrong to have this capuchin as a pet in the first place. But I think he’s doing the right thing by relinquishing ownership. A zoo/sanctuary is the best option now. I would like to see the ASPCA (or another group) investigate the man who gifted the animal to Bieber. I will hazard a guess this was a black market scam.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      That was my thought as well. Who even gave that monkey to him? Who breeds these animals as pets? I highly doubt that this was legal but you never know.

      Also, for someone who, at 19, still clings to his mommy as much as Bieber does, he’s quite flippant about taking a baby animal that was just a few weeks old. How about Bieber weans himself first?

  23. chi says:

    So they locked up the wrong baby monkey (no offense to monkeys), Mally was not the one who needed to disappeare from the public eye. People of Munich, thank you anyway, it was a nice try.

  24. Hooper says:

    What is Selena doing with this dick?

    His shelf life is running out real fast.

    Can’t wait.

  25. Darkladi says:

    This little tattooed tampon just got MORE disgusting. Tool.

  26. Elceibeno says:

    His a vapid little twerp.

  27. TXCinderella says:

    What a douche! I can’t stand this kid! He’s looking more and more like Miley Cyrus.

  28. logan says:

    He’s a child making childish decisions.

  29. danielle says:

    Losing respect for Selena Gomez for getting back with with this thing after the crap it’s pulled lately. The Anne Frank incidents, the poor little monkey, everything.

  30. Mary says:

    I despise him for what he has done to that monkey

  31. Mata says:

    Since most Beliebers are under the age of ten, that pic is particularly heeby jeeby inducing.

  32. skuddles says:

    It’s not sad that this little asshole doesn’t care about the monkey – it’s disgusting. But I’m sure monkey will be better off in the long run. If Biebs took it back it would probably be dead in a few months. Self absorbed idiots like him and Kim Krap should never be permitted to have pets.

  33. Hope says:

    Is it just me, or did that last paragraph seem to eerily apply to child stars like Beiber as well as monkeys? Children should be off playing with other children and subjected to the banal and at times brutal existence that is grades 6-12. Everyone should get shot down by people they like, teased (not full-on bullied) and fail a few finals. If for no other reason than to learn some limits and humility. This kid has none, and he knows it. And he doesn’t care.

  34. DeltaJuliet says:

    That last picture broke my heart. Poor little Mally.

    F*ck Bieber.

  35. Remember The '80s says:

    Blood…is…BOILING. This self-entitled human stain and his traveling Diaper Derby have ripped a baby animal from its mother, completely screw up the travel documents out of complete apathy I’m sure and then abandon it because now the baby monkey is an inconvenience. I can only put up with this douche for so long(and other stupid celebrities who treat animals like f***in accessories.) When it comes to animals…..grrrrrrrrr. Watch out Bieber, you’re going down in douche flames and I’ve got a front row seat.

  36. K-rock says:

    Good. I hope the little prick inks his entire body up and regrets it and has to go through painful laser surgery to have them removed.

  37. WendyNerd says:

    Dear Justin Bieber,

    Thou art a boil, a plague sore, an embossed carbuncle in my corrupted blood. There’s no more faith in thee than in a stewed prune. You scullion. You rampallion. I tickle your catastrophe. Thou art a flesh-monger, a fool and coward. I delight in fantasies of you restrained in a tiny cage, cut off from all humanity like your poor pet monkey. Please die in all the fires. Thou have proven yourself to have the compassion and wits of a dead fish.


  38. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    I’m not even trying to be rude here – he looks like a really cute lesbian girl from my work place. It’s kind of unsettling. How is Selena with him? He does not radiate masculinity at. all.

  39. emma says:

    poor little monkey!
    it’s gross when someone as wealthy as bieb can’t even manage to get some papers and tests or whatever needed done. At least it will be going to a good home where it will be happy.
    bieb should have gotten the monkey out and then donated it somewhere- much better PR.

  40. blaize says:

    I don’t respect people who willfilly neglect their animals. He has no excuse- it’s not like he can’t afford to care for it. Who just gives up on their pet just because they’ve decided that they don’t want it anymore? You made a committment by accepting the monkey.

    Justin Bieber’s true nature has really been coming out over the past few months. And the instagram picture was likely his way of either sending a message to Selena (before they got back together) that he didn’t need her, he could have any girl he wanted, or it was his way of telling his critics that it doesn’t matter what they say, because many (desperate or naive) girls would love to get with him.

  41. Pandy says:

    This story highlights the trade in exotic animals as pets – they are not pets and they have problems trying to adjust to our society. Jane Goodall wrote a great piece on her blog about Bubbles – Jackson’s former chimp. They mature around age 7 or 8 and then challenge for dominance. Hence being dumped in sanctuaries. Reserve more hatred for the people dealing in the monkeys, then hate on Bieber for not ensuring and spending $$to ensure the capuchin ends up with other capuchins with some amount of freedom.

  42. Itsa Reallyme says:

    Why can’t he just return Mally to his biological mother? Poor little thing.

  43. lisa says:

    i hate him. and his mom is too busy trying to make herself happen to put in any effort. i hate that the poor monkey is suffering but if he had been allowed to keep him, that monkey would be with mercy karashian west right now.

  44. Beatriz says:

    Damn. I have a dwarf-bunny and yeah, she can be a pain in the ass, but I could never imagine just giving her up. The fact that he isn’t even trying to get Mally back, speaks VOLUME of his character IMO, and that has nothing to do with age.

  45. Kristine says:

    He just wanted the monkey to pose with so he could post it on instagram. He doesn’t care about it. He only cares about looking cute and having young girls swoon over him. The tattoos meaning btw.. gimmie a break!

  46. Rachel says:

    I don’t think he necessarily doesn’t want the monkey. This is just putting a mean twist to a possible good intention. I’m sure he knows the monkey would be better off at a zoo or something than with him. Frankly, I’m happy he doesn’t want the monkey back. Now THAT would’ve been something to be mad about. I can’t believe I’m even saying this because I really, really, really dislike Justin Bieber, but, for the love of god, give him a break. He isn’t the friggin’ anti-Christ.

  47. Str8Shooter says:

    Someone needs to smack the shit out of this little f’n twerp. That poor animal is going to be scarred for life.

    The Belieber photo takes the cake.

    I can not WAIT to see his downfall.

  48. LadyL says:

    His mother needs to stop cashing checks and check his ass. This is what happens when no one has the guts to parent and discipline the money maker.

    I’m just waiting for the first of many paternity suits. I just hope the money lasts long enough to pay off all the future baby mamas that are bound to crawl of the woodwork.

    • jwoolman says:

      I don’t think there’s much, if anything, that his mother could do at his age. He’s old enough to get married or join the military without mom’s permission, and he has full access to any money held in trust for him. You see this with other kid entertainers- they start acting really stupid at 18 because they are no longer legally tied to their parents, can and do live on their own with no supervision, and suddenly have loads of money with no parental strings attached. Lindsay “The Cracken” Lohan started causing big trouble on sets at 18, before then someone (Dina? Audible gasp!!!) was keeping her on a relatively short leash even though she was on her own in Hollywood before that. One of the Olsen twins was pushed into rehab by her parents just before her 18th birthday, because after that- they couldn’t have done it. Even lesser mortals start acting stupid at that age when away from parents. If they’re in the military or college, the respective institutions have to do a lot of ” in loco parentis” actions to keep the clueless kiddies in line. But rich kids who earned their own money (and are not depending on parental purse strings) have nothing to hold them back.

  49. Lexi says:

    That is truly awful! What a douche!

  50. DanaG says:

    When is he going go away? Give him 12 months if that the press have all turned and his little fans tend to be very fickle. I doubt he is being smart with his money so he should be working at a fastfood place in no time. The poor monkey didn’t do anything and I think it’s great he is going to a monkey shelter and I hope it’s soon! Poor baby. Can’t believe Selena is gotten back with the douchebag give it a week or two and they will split again. He can get 100 tattoos it won’t make him anymore a man.

  51. This is what happens when you are young and can afford to surround yourself with people who never tell you “no”. The way you treat animals says a lot about what kind of human being you are, and the whole “Belieber” thing….it’s just creepy, and evocative of all of the gross, weird cult-leaders that we have seen come and go through our history who fancied themselves God’s gift to women. Essentially, he is the David Koresh of insipid pop music, and someone needs to raid the compound before he takes any more innocents down with him.

  52. PortlandJan says:

    I’ve gotten everlastingly tired of this little turdblossom giving himself a pass because “I’m young! I’m only 19!”. Will he still be playing the youth card when he’s 65?
    Getting sprung from Bieber’s custody is the best thing that could happen to Mally. I just hope that a strange monkey troop will accept him.

  53. Patrice says:

    Everything about this story is disgusting from start to finish. Justin Bieber has seemingly been on a massive downward spiral for some time now, but this particular report leads me to believe that he was always a despicable human being right from the start.

    Animals, particularly of the exotic variety, are not disposible toys to be thrown away once their “owners” get bored only to be left to suffer and die of neglect (which happens in almost every case-see Neverland Ranch and countless other reports) once they become “too big” or “difficult to handle.”

    Justin has access to all the money in the world so even more so, there is absolutely ZERO excuse for this! He or his people should/could have immediately found an exotic animal sanctuary for Mally to live at themselves but I guess that would have been too much of a hassle. Instead they would have just left him behind to rot if it weren’t for the loving team it seems happened to end up taking care of her.

    Exotic animals are not pets! It makes me sad to no end that stories like these are becoming more and more commonplace :( Shame on Justin, but perhaps even more shame on the U.S. government for legalizing the ownership of the helpless animals who are ripped from their mothers/the wild and end up this way.

    • jwoolman says:

      Don’t underestimate the level of ignorance about the needs of other primates. They are such social animals, it should be a no-brainer that they belong with others of their own species. They don’t have a social contract with humans dating back thousands of years like cats and dogs. Human children raised by other species are permanently damaged, why would we believe other primates would be any different? I see definite problems in cats traceable to being kidnapped from their mothers and siblings way too early, and they’re relative loners compared with primates. Kittens do much better when at least taken under the paw of an older cat in the house, to try to make up for their loss of their real mom and teach them how to be a cat.

      Anyway, I would be willing to assume Bieber is more ignorant than malicious in the way he deals with other animals in his uncertain care. The guy was clueless about the needs of even a hamster, after all. Who just hands their pet to some random on the street?!? He really seems just very immature, with nobody around to say “whoa, don’t do that!” and explain why not. He doesn’t really seem like a deliberately cruel person. He didn’t buy the monkey, some foolish person gave it to him, obviously missing the manual.

  54. Rachel says:

    I can’t believe people keep falling for this sensational garbage. He didn’t buy the monkey. Someone gave it to him.

    He doesn’t look after himself or anyone else while he’s on the road. He really has little to do with this except probably thinking it was a sweet little animal.
