Bieber pays for sordid monkey businessComment on this story
London - Justin Bieber has finally paid the bill for abandoning his monkey.
The 'Believe' hitmaker landed in trouble with authorities Germany in March 2013 for illegally bringing his pet primate Mally into the country without the necessary paperwork or vaccinations, and rather than provide the needed documents, he chose to leave the creature behind.
The German Federal Nature Conservation Agency says the singer finally paid out $10 700 (about R114 675) last week, which will cover the monkey's cost of living at a shelter for the past 17 months, as well as his import.
Mally is now living at a zoo in North Germany.
Meanwhile, the singer's entourage have been accused of bribing Canadian border officials.
A female officer at the Niagra Falls border has been fired after she reportedly accepted $10 000 worth of backstage passes to get members of Justin's team with criminal records into the country while he performed, TMZ reports.
The 'Beauty and a Beat' hitmaker player shows in Toronto last year, but it is unclear when the alleged bribes took pace as they only came to light when more of the singer's friends arrived at the border looking for "special treatment" and were reported by officers on duty. - BANG Showbiz
