Justin Bieber has had his pet monkey seized by customs at a German airport.

The pop brat sneaked the primate into Europe on his private jet and reportedly faces prosecution in Munich as he did not have the correct papers for his monkey, named Mally, which is now in quarantine.

A source told The Sun: "Justin has been acting like a right diva. He is out of control and lives in an alternative reality to the rest of us. He didn’t think about the potential risks of flying a monkey from one continent to another. He and Mally go everywhere together. He will be heartbroken it has been put in quarantine. He seems as fond of Mally as Michael Jackson was of his chimp Bubbles."

Bieber is believed to have flown the monkey in his £13,000-a-flight private jet from Los Angeles to Munich's Franz Josef Strauss airport on Thursday (March 28) ahead of his gig at the city's Olmpiahalle. The singer was detained for "some time" at the airport and had his monkey quarantined.

A customs spokesman said: "The animal required a certificate of health and other authorisations. You cannot just land with a wild animal and bring it into the country if the flight has not originated from another EU country and you don’t have the proper paperwork."

Justin Bieber recently posted a note on Instagram, saying he doesn't deserve all the negative press he's been getting. Bieber wrote: "Everyone in my team has been telling me, 'keep the press happy' but I'm tired of all the countless lies in the press right now."

He added: "And don't think I deserve all this negative press I've worked my ass off to get where I am and my hard work doesn't stop here... All this isn't easy. I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks."
