Justin Bieber just can’t catch a break. Heading into Germany for the next leg of his European tour, the Canadian pop star was hit with an unsettling surprise when his prized Capuchin monkey was seized by German customs officials after he tried to bring the animal into the country without permission, according to People magazine. “Justin Biebr brought his monkey to Germany but had no official paperwork for him,” a customs spokesman says. “We were forced to confiscate the animal.”

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard welcomed a baby girl late last week, the first child for the couple. “Lincoln Bell Shepard is here,” Shepard posted to Twitter. “She has Mom’s beauty and Dad’s obsession with breasts. Hooray!” Not to be outdone, Bell also took to Twitter to jokingly celebrate the birth, posting, “My new roommate poops her pants and doesn’t pay rent. Basically Dax Shepard pre-sobriety. Welcome baby Lincoln.”

“Avengers” star Jeremy Renner and an ex-girlfriend welcomed the birth of daughter Ava Berlin Renner, according to Us Weekly. “They are beyond thrilled,” a rep for Renner says in a statement. “Mother and daughter are doing great.” Though the parents are no longer together, Renner had made a point of putting the mother-to-be up in his Los Angeles home as she awaited the birth. “They used to date but it wasn’t serious,” a source says, adding that Renner was “being ultra-secretive about it, but she has been going on about her life and not hiding it.”

What’s the worst insult a young actress can endure? This might be it. “Les Miserables” star Amanda Seyfried was mistaken at LAX for her “Mean Girls” co-star Lindsay Lohan. “I just got mistaken for a Ms. Lohan at Newark Airport,” Seyfried posted to Twitter. It’s probably not a comparison Seyfried welcomes, considering her previous comments about Lohan: “Lindsay was great on ‘Mean Girls.’ I think that was before she got a little nuts,” Seyfried previously told Teen Vogue. “I kind of don’t expect some of these girls, who’ve been working since they were 2, to be sane.”
