The singer posted a photo on Instagram of his three-year-old daughter Royalty cuddling the animal in January.

The 29-year-old performer was charged last week with two counts stemming from his ownership of a pet capuchin monkey without a permit, the Los Angeles city attorney's office has confirmed.

Brown posted a photo to his 44 million Instagram followers in January showing his three-year-old daughter, Royalty, cuddling the animal named Fiji.

Brown will be formally charged in a US court on 6 February, after which he will be expected to issue a plea.

His attorney Mark Geragos has not immediately responded to requests for comment.
