Californian investigators had determined the singer didn't have a permit for the capuchin monkey, named Fiji.

The singer angered animal lovers last month (Dec17) when he posted a picture of his three-year-old daughter Royalty holding Fiji, a baby primate.

Singer Chris Brown is the subject of a California Department of Fish and Wildlife investigation for allegedly never getting a permit to keep his pet monkey.

Some people complained to authorities about Brown owning the pet, which prompted the investigation, according to TMZ. He said Brown agreed to cooperate.

Man confesses to 1993 murder in emotional TV interview
Hawkins reached out to KRCR 7 ABC news to confess to his crime on camera before turning himself into the police station next door. Later that day, the auto was found outside a Costco in Redding, with blood on the car's exterior and interior, police said.

While Brown isn't in trouble for bringing his daughter and the exotic animal together, the Fish and Wildlife team discovered that Brown didn't have the proper permits to house the Capuchin monkey. The charge is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum of six months in prison.

Meanwhile Fiji - whose species is well-versed in the world of entertainment through notable appearances in Pirates of the Caribbean and the sitcom Friends - is being kept at an undisclosed facility. According to Foy, the case was handed over to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.

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'.

Email and phone message requests for comment from his representatives weren't immediately returned.
