Troubled R&B crooner Chris Brown could face up to six months in jail, this time over owning a restricted exotic pet, which is a misdemeanor.
According to TMZ, the 28-year-old Grammy winner has already voluntarily surrendered his female baby capuchin monkey Fiji, and the case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney.
Some of the Virginia-born ex-convict’s fans notified the California Department of Fish and Wildlife after he shared a December 6 video of his three-year-old daughter Royalty cuddling Fiji.
‘Is this your baby?’ Chris – who boasts 108.8M social media followers – asked his princess in the video.
‘She’s going to be bigger than you, right. Y’all got the same size head.’
The Heartbreak on a Full Moon singer shares joint custody of the toddler with his Houston-based babymama, Nia Guzman-Amey.
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.’
This, a week after the Welcome to My Life star unveiled a graffiti mural in his house depicting his first search warrant from 2009 (felony assault and making criminal threats) when he beat up girlfriend Rihanna.
Careerwise, Chris will soon drop a mixtape with Atlanta singer-songwriter, Rodriquez ‘Jacquees’ Broadnax, and he previewed a new song on Thursday
