TEENAGE pop star Justin Bieber appears to have given up on his pet monkey which was seized by German customs officials in March, according to the shelter looking after “Mally”.

The 19-year-old singer has until Friday to hand in the necessary paperwork to retrieve his capuchin monkey, which was seized at Munich airport during the singer’s recent tour.

“Bieber’s lawyers have indicated they would like to leave the monkey,” said Judith Brettmeister, spokeswoman for the shelter caring for Mally.

Brettmeister says Mally, who was around 14 weeks old when confiscated, had been taken away from its mother too early. It will be transferred from the shelter to a zoo.
