Justin Bieber's monkey is reportedly staying put for now even though the singer has apparently asked that it be removed from an animal shelter where it is staying and be placed in a zoo, German customs authorities said Tuesday.
Mally, a 17-week-old capuchin monkey, was seized by customs authorities March 28 when the 19-year-old Canadian pop star failed to produce the required vaccination and import papers after landing in Munich for a European tour.
Bieber had until midnight Friday to produce those documents.
As his latest offering off of his album Believe, Justin Bieber, performed Take You at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday in front of a live audience. The 19-year-old took to the stage the same night he was up for a slew of awards, including one of the night's biggest honors: Top Artist. His fellow nominees in the respective category included Taylor Swift, One Direction, Rihanna and Maroon 5.
