They weren't monkeying around! German customs officials seized a capuchin monkey from Justin Bieber last Thursday after the singer apparently attempted to bring it into the country without official permission. "Justin Bieber brought his monkey to Germany, but had no official paperwork with him," Thomas Meister, spokesman for the customs office at the Franz Josef Strauss Airport in Munich, tells People.
