Justin Bieber is about as much of a musical bad boy as this generation has seen.

However, whereas previous generations have been all about biting the heads off bats and wrecking the gaff, the most that Biebz can muster is the occasional piss in a restaurant mop bucket and the improper registration of his pets.

Yes, he really did piss in a mop bucket at a restaurant, and then apparently stole a bottle of cleaning fluid and swore at a picture of Bill Clinton, because he's like, well 'ard.

Anyway, it's the improper registration of animals that I'm interested in, because it is apparently still having effects further down the line as the monkey - which he failed to carry the correct documentation for - is apparently having a pretty hard time of it. Pretty sad news.

OG, an endangered Capuchin monkey was seized from Bieber in 2013 by the German authorities. It is thought that he had been illegally purchased before he arrived in the singer's possession.

He was only 14 weeks old when he was taken from his mother and is apparently still recovering from the ordeal of being in Bieber's captivity.

He now lives at the Serengeti Wildlife Park near Hodenhagen, Germany. A representative from the park, Asta Knoth, told babe.net: "He still has issues speaking the capuchin language. He still tries to imitate human speech. He sometimes makes weird scratchy sounds which are not typical for capuchins. That's why we think he still tries to talk to humans.

"It took a while for him to get there because he was taken away from his mother and natural family way too early. He did not learn to be a monkey."

She does now think he is over the worst of his ordeal though, adding: "He did recover fine and he is healthy and seems to be quite happy in his new home."

Bieber has a pretty long rap sheet when it comes to animals. His snake was auctioned off, his hamster died, his dog and cat have gone AWOL and he famously attracted criticism for posing with a chained-up tiger at his dad's engagement party.

When he arrived at the zoo Mally was reportedly not in the shape he is now in. As zoo worker Jenny Niawoehner told the Daily Mail: "Mally was frightened, he was alone, he was disoriented and we did not know how things would work out for him. He needed to be cared for constantly."

Perhaps luckily for the poor creature, Bieber has never come back for him.
