Chris Brown might be spending six months in jail

This time for owning an exotic pet monkey.

Chris Brown has gotten in trouble with the law many times before. Battery, hit-and-run, a police standoff, he’s done it all. But this time it’s different: Brown might spend six months in jail because of a monkey. Yep.

While Fiji has been taken to a sanctuary, where he “is doing well,” according to BuzzFeed, Breezy has a court date on February 6. If the controversial R&B singer is convicted, he could face a maximum of six months in jail.
