Chris Brown charged over ownership of pet capuchin monkey

R&B singer Chris Brown has been charged with monkey-related misdemeanours.

The 29-year-old performer was charged last week with two counts stemming from his ownership of a pet capuchin monkey with no enable, the Los Angeles metropolis lawyer’s office has confirmed.

Brown posted to his 44 million Instagram followers in January displaying his three-year-old daughter, Royalty, cuddling the animal named Fiji.

California fish and wildlife brokers took the monkey away rapidly after.

Brown may be formally charged in a US courtroom on 6 February, after which he may be anticipated to drawback a plea.

His lawyer Mark Geragos has not immediately responded to requests for comment.

Brown has been in repeated licensed trouble since admitting the assault of the pop star Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, in 2009.

He completed his probation in that case in 2015.

Two years later he was issued with a restraining order over a “threat to kill” his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran.
