Justin Bieber has paid the bill he owed for trying to bring his pet monkey into Germany last year without its papers, according to German authorities.

The pop star is said to have paid the 8,000 euros (£6,417) he owed over the monkey blunder.

Justin failed to produce vaccination and import papers for Mally the monkey on arriving in Munich in March 2013, and the animal was seized by customs.

Mally became the German government's property after the singer failed to claim his pet, and now lives at a zoo in northern Germany.

Franz Emde, a spokesman for the German Federal Nature Conservation Agency, said that Justin this week paid a 2,100 euro (£1,684) fine for the monkey's import plus the costs of several weeks' care at an animal shelter.

Failure to pay could have put Justin in legal difficulty if he travelled in the EU.
