The website reports that having bought a baby Capuchin, named Fiji, the 28-year-old pop star could be heading to jail as he never got a permit for the animal.

Chris Brown got himself a pet monkey - but never got a permit to keep her - so now he's sans monkey and could face criminal charges.

Under California law, it is illegal to keep certain exotic species, including monkeys, poisonous snakes, lizards and other risky animals, without a permit. We have learned that Chris Brown's desire to own an exotic pet might get him in huge trouble with the law!

According to TMZ.com, several concerned members of the public notified officials at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, who opened an investigation and found Chris did not have an exotic pet permit.

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

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'.

The case has been turned over to the L.A. city attorney, TMZ reported. Fans and animal rights activists argued that capuchin monkeys weren't suited as pets and belong in the wild. If Brown is charged with owning a restricted species without the proper documentation, he could face up to six months behind bars, according to TMZ.
