Wayne Newton and the pet monkey he’s called his “best friend” are at the center of a lawsuit filed in Las Vegas this week.
According to the suit, capuchin monkey Boo “viciously attacked” a girl “without any provocation” while she and her mother were visiting the 52-acre estate in October 2017. The two were allegedly invited guests of the famed property, which is called Casa de Shenandoah, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Newton lived in the estate for 45 years, but he and his wife, Kathleen, moved out in 2013 after a bankruptcy sale. In 2015, the property re-opened to visitors for $35 a person. In addition to Newton’s prized items, including luxury cars, a jet, and decades of memorabilia, his exotic animals — including Arabian horses, penguins and the aforementioned monkey — were among the attractions.
