According to HotNewHipHop, police received multiple tips from random people about Chris’ monkey and notified California’s Department of Fish & Wildlife, who decided to investigate. Chris cooperated and surrendered the monkey.

According to TMZ, Chris could be charged for having the monkey, which is a misdemeanor and carries a maximum of six months in jail.

We will keep you updated but in the meantime, know that the monkey is indeed in good hands.

Do you think this is all “monkey business” or is Chris being attacked because of his celebrity and past.
