The city's wildlife department's employee Captain Patrick Foy has said that Chris was not at home when the search on his home in Los Angeles was carried out but his staff handed the primate over to the authorities and he agreed to co-operate with them.

Blame social media. After Brown posted a photo of the monkey, named Fiji, with his three-year-old daughter, Royalty, everyone was up in arms because they didn't it was safe for the toddler to own a wild animal. "Now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity". Internet goers believed the monkey was a gift to Royalty and feared for her safety. Chris however, told everyone to chill.

Singer Chris Brown appears for a probation progress hearing at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Centre in Los Angeles February 3, 2014. So sadly at the moment Chris no longer has his monkey, but that's not where it ends. "We dropping a mixtape fuck it", Jacquees wrote on Instagram on January 11, while Brown added, "we family so we gone f-k this r&b shit up". Then, on December 13, 2017, he announced a 57-track deluxe edition of the album.
