It was earlier reported Chris got skewered online for appearing to have bought Royalty the monkey, with scores of fans saying the monkey posed a danger to Royalty, and belongs in the wild.

It’s been said Fiji's permanent address will be CB's crib, and that's the only place Royalty will get to see her. The monkey's not allowed to go to her mom, Nia Guzman's house. While that might ease safety concern's for Royalty, Fiji still won't be in the wild
