The "Say Goodbye" singer, 28, introduced the capuchin monkey, which he named Fiji, early last month in an Instagram video showing the animal with his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty.

LG unveils 88-inch 8K TV ahead of CES
OLED TVs are well-known for their superior picture quality with flawless black, more life-like colors, and wider viewing angles. LG is scheduled to launch its 8K 88-inch OLED TV at CES next week, which boasts of a resolution of 7680 x 4320.

As cute as Chris Brown's pet monkey is, it's definitely been attracting some unwanted attention to Chris' life. "In a home environment they become unhappy and can become aggressive".

Authorities obtained a search warrant, but Chris voluntarily agreed to hand over the monkey before his home was raided.

He may now face a misdemeanour charge, which carries a potential six-month prison sentence.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos has since said he thought it was "absurd" of the City Attorney to 'spend taxpayer money on investigating monkey business'.

A spokesperson for the L.A. City Attorney's Office told us that there was "no information at this time".

Representatives for Brown have not responded to requests for comment.
