Bieber delays plane over monkey?

Justin Bieber apparently delayed the departure of a private jet for several hours - while he looked for his monkey.

The pop star was due to fly from Miami to Burbank at the weekend but called the private plane company to explain that he had been held up searching for his pet primate, reported TMZ.

The star apparently arrived at the airport four hours later but there were further delays because he then hopped in a helicopter and headed to West Palm Beach to collect his monkey before boarding the plane.

The jet finally took off a few hours later than planned.

Despite all the rushing around, Justin posted some videos to Instagram during his hectic day. In one, he filmed from the cockpit of the helicopter and joked: "There was just too much traffic."

Justin, 19, doesn't have much luck with his primates.

Earlier this year his pet Capuchin monkey, Mally, was seized by German customs when the star failed to produce required vaccination and import papers for the animal after landing in Munich for a European tour.

Mally was later taken in by the Serengeti Park in Hodenhagen, in northern Germany, so it's thought the monkey that Justin delayed the plane for was a different animal.
