R&B singer Chris Brown is facing a criminal investigation of over a pet monkey he gifted to his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty Brown, last month. After seeing Brown's posts on Instagram featuring his daughter and the monkey, people began writing articles and blog posts warning him of the dangers of owning the animal as a pet, especially where a child is concerned. People also contacted the authorities in California where Brown resides.

The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office wants to slap Brown with criminal charges over the incident and are looking over the case, as the California Department of Fish and Wildlife discovered he did not obtain a permit for the exotic pet, which was seized by the government on January 2, 2018.

An official for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife stated of Brown, "It is not lawful to possess an unpermitted monkey, including a bunch of other animals, in California.We did a brief investigation to come to a conclusion that he was indeed in possession [of an animal without a permit]. On January 2, they used a search warrant to go to the house and [seize] the monkey as evidence and they will file the case with the L.A. City Attorney’s Office. I don’t think it’s been filed yet. I imagine it will be filed soon."
