Justin Bieber's pet monkey, Mally, has been held back at an airport in Germany because he didn't have the right paperwork.

The fourteen-week old Capuchin monkey was confiscated by customs in Munich and is being kept there until the popstar can provide them with a health certificate and other documents for Mally.

Bieber had travelled from LA to Germany on his private jet as part of his Believe tour when the monkey was confiscated.

A spokesperson at the airport said, "The animal was confiscated by us and has been found appropriate animal housing. The animal is doing very well."
