Justin Bieber STILL Owes Germany $11,000 for Abandoning His Monkey Mally
These are the kind of friends who will gladly take his money.
Not only are Rio de Janeiro officials planning to nab the saggy-pants loving superstar for tagging illegally, but German officials still haven’t heard a word from Bieber or his team and haven't received a dime for the time when he illegally brought his pet monkey into the country and left her there.
That was eight months ago and nearly $11,000 later, according to the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation.
So it’s safe to say Rio shouldn’t hold their breath for a payment anytime soon.
Attorney Ellen Frederichs told CB! the Conservation informed Bieber about his fine at the end of September via a letter addressed to his private address in California -- to no avail. And it made a last ditch attempt at contacting him Wednesday.
“Additionally, a copy of our letter was delivered to a staff member of Justin Bieber yesterday in L.A. at his arrival from Costa Rica,” added Frederichs.
“As Mr. Bieber should be informed about his payment obligations by now, we hope that he takes his responsibility and settles the costs he has caused to the public, just like anybody else would have to do.”
Biebs brought his capuchin Mally to Germany during a stop on his "Believe" tour in March, but failed to fill out the proper paperwork so the furry creature had to be quarantined. The only problem is the 19-year-old never returned for her and she was sent away to live in a sanctuary then finally a zoo.
Altogether, the grand total in penalties comes to 8,088 Euros (that’s roughly $10,892.)
And if the pint-size pop sensation, who made $58 million as of June alone, doesn’t pony up the cash, he may not want to come back to Germany for a while.
“If Mr. Bieber will not settle his costs," said the lawyer, "the payment might have to be enforced when he will enter Germany again.”
