Justin Bieber has reportedly abandoned his pet monkey, after it was seized by customs officials in Germany last month.

Mally the Bieber-monkey is being kept in quarantine by customs on the German border after the teen pop star attempted to get the animal into the country without the correct legal documentation.

According to the Evening Standard, a spokesman for the Munich animal clinic where Mally is currently residing, claimed the singer's management team in New York contacted them this week, asking them to find a "safe and sheltered place, or a zoo" for him. "We have to discuss now the way forward with customs officials and other responsible departments," he added.

Bieber has been given a deadline of May 17 by German authorities to either claim the monkey and pay a significant sum of money towards his upkeep, or to put in writing that he doesn't want him anymore.

"So far no papers for the monkey of Justin Bieber have been submitted," Franz Böhmer, of the Bonn Federal Office for Nature Conservation said. "If he submits a written disclaimer, we can accommodate Mally in a welfare family group in a zoo."

Bieber was reportedly was given the monkey for his 19th birthday last month from music producer Jamal 'Mally Mal' Rashid.
