Justin Bieber is set to lose his pet monkey, Mally, if he does not submit the appropriate paperwork by Friday, according to Billboard.

The capuchin monkey was seized in March and has since been living in a German shelter. Judith Brettmeister, the shelter's spokeswoman, said that Bieber's lawyers told her the star has no intentions to reclaim the pet monkey.

Mally was separated from her mother very early, and has been doing well in the shelter's care. The pet had not yet learned to climb or use its tail, but is developing those skills under the supervision of the shelter.

Should Bieber abandon Mally, the monkey would be given to a German zoo, where she could socialize with other primates.
