Celebrity Rehab: Chimp Edition

A chimp that smokes and drinks too much? Uh, was he even legally allowed to buy cigarettes and alcohol?
A Russian chimpanzee has been sent to rehab by zookeepers to cure the smoking and beer-drinking habits he has picked up, a popular daily reported on Friday. An ex-performer, Zhora became aggressive at his circus and was transferred to a zoo in the southern Russian city of Rostov, where he fathered several baby chimps, learned to draw with markers and picked up his two vices.

"The beer and cigarettes were ruining him. He would pester passers-by for booze," the Komsomolskaya Pravda paper said.
He's probably not even paying support for those babies he fathered, the deadbeat.
