Supposedly, a number of people chose to notify the California Department of Fish and Wildlife regarding the baby capuchin named Fiji that the singer got three months ago.

It's required by law to have a specific permit to keep a monkey in California, as the state does not allow residents to keep them as domestic pets.

Last month, the R&B singer faced backlash from people on social media after Chris' 3-year old daughter Royalty was pictured holding the monkey.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife says agents seized an illegal pet monkey from singer Chris Brown's home in Tarzana.

Several celebrities have taken note of this advertisement and shared their disappointment in H&M on Twitter and Instagram. On Tuesday, rapper G-Eazy, who also worked with H&M, announced he too would be terminating their relationship .

A number of people weren't too happy about Chris allowing the animal near his daughter, because they thought it could posed a risk to her.

Brown was not home when agents executed a search warrant on 2 January, but employees handed the animal over and he has since agreed to cooperate, according to the department's Captain Patrick Foy.

But he voluntarily gave up the monkey before his house was raided. The case has been turned over to the Los Angeles city attorney's office.

However according to the publication, the "Heartbreak On A Full Moon" singer could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, which carries a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail.

The monkey is said to be fine.

Representatives for Brown have not responded to requests for comment.
