Justin Bieber has officially given up on his pet monkey that was seized by German customs officials in March.
Justin had until last Friday to send in the paperwork to get his capuchin monkey "Mally" back. The animal was seized at Munich airport during a concert tour.
But a spokeswoman for the shelter caring for Mally said that "Bieber's lawyers have said they would like to leave the monkey."
Mally was around 14 weeks old when it was confiscated. The animal had been taken away from its mother too early and needed veterinary care.
