Last year, singer Justin Bieber made headlines after he attempted to smuggle his pet capuchin monkey into Germany without documentation. Authorities at the Munich airport promptly seized the exotic animal, named Mally, promising to return him once the singer provided the necessary health and ownership papers.
Bieber, however, never came back. A month after his pet was taken into custody, authorities learned that Bieber decided he didn't want the monkey anymore. And since then, Mally has been a ward of the state, housed at a wildlife park in northern Germany while his famous former owner moved on with his life.
But now the person who ended up raising the little monkey is speaking out - blasting Bieber for abandoning the animal. In an interview with the U.K.'s MailOnline, Mally's keeper, Jenny Niawoehner, basically calls Bieber out.
"I would not like to meet Justin Bieber because I would not have pleasant things to say to him," says Niawoehner.
"Mally was frightened [when he arrived], 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. I believe that Justin Bieber probably only ever interacted with him when he wanted to have his picture taken with a fan."
