Justin Bieber ran into some trouble at Munich airport on Thursday when customs officials detained and quarantined his monkey.

According to TMZ, Bieber had recently been given the capuchin monkey as a pet by record producer Mally Mall. Bieber apparently brought the monkey along to join him on the Austrian and German leg of his European tour, but he didn't have the documentation required to bring his new friend into Germany. Bieber went on to perform in Munich on Thursday night while the monkey was kept in the custody of authorities.

This isn't the first roadbump in Bieber's European tour: During the London leg, the singer suffered respiratory problems and fainted backstage at a show, then clashed with a photographer and was booed by fans for starting his O2 Arena show two hours late.
