Monkey Puzzle

‘GERMAN pop star Werner Boehm has been issued with an ultimatum by his young wife – the monkey or me.

The 62-year-old moved the 10-year-old female baboon into the marital home after meeting her on the set of a music video.

‘It was love at first sight,” he said. “The monkey is extremely musical and can even play the piano. We’re on the same wavelength.’

However, wife Susanne is less impressed, especially when the monkey was allowed into their bed.

‘I gave him the choice: The monkey or me,” the 31-year-old said. “He chose the monkey. It’s incredibly painful to know that some baboon is more important to him than I am.’

Boehm, whose popularity has surged since an appearance on the German version of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, said that his wife was welcome to stay “but only if she accepts the monkey’.’
