(Newser) – Justin Bieber is in danger of losing his monkey. Yes, you read that correctly. The singer's capuchin monkey, Mally, was seized by customs agents when Bieber landed in Germany last week and couldn't produce the necessary documents. The 14-week-old monkey has been quarantined in a city animal shelter (which has been "besieged" by reporters) since then, and now German authorities have given Bieber four weeks to present the papers and pick Mally up, Reuters reports. If he doesn't, the animal will be placed in permanent care, the AP reports. Bonus tidbit: The German shelter says Mally shouldn't even have left its mother until it was at least a year old.

Could this (and all of Bieber's recent bizarre behavior) all be Selena Gomez's fault? Friends tell TMZ the Biebs has been acting out because he's so heartbroken that Gomez dumped him. He's also reportedly upset that she's sending mixed signals—calling him often, for example—and has been expressing his anger in not-so-great ways. He also recently compared himself to Jay-Z—click to read.
