Los Angeles - Justin Bieber allegedly forced a private jet to wait for eight hours for his new pet monkey.

The 19-year-old singer, who has been criticised for his bad behaviour in recent months, annoyed an aviation company by delaying his flight from Miami, Florida, to Burbank, California, to search for his pet on Friday.

A source told gossip website that the Beauty And A Beat hitmaker was scheduled to take off at 11:00. and called to say he was running late.

He eventually showed up at the private airport lounge at 15:00 but told staff he still wasn't ready to leave because he needed to collect his pet from West Palm Beach.

Mally seized in Germany

The Canadian star chartered a private helicopter to retrieve the pet as quickly as possible but was eventually told that the pilot would not be able to wait much longer because he was about to run out of duty time.

The plane eventually took off with the singer shortly after 17:00 but it is not yet known if Justin's monkey was on board.

Justin's last pet monkey recently became the property of Germany.

The singer's beloved pet, Mally, was seized by authorities in March when the singer failed to provide proper vaccination and import documents when he arrived in Munich to perform a concert as part of his Believe Tour.

German authorities filed legal documents in May to transfer ownership of the capuchin monkey after Justin failed to meet a deadline set to provide the required documents and Mally is now living in a zoo there.
