Chris Brown must be a proud father! In a custody battle between him and his child’s mother, Nia Guzman, he maintained joint custody over one-year-old Royalty on Tuesday. The judge denied Guzman her request to restrict Brown’s custody because of alleged drug use and gang affiliation.

Guzman has made several accusations of Brown’s parenting claiming in court that Chris was unfit to care for Royalty and requested that he has supervised visitation and less time with his little girl.

Back in January, Guzman claimed that Chris and his buddies had been smoking weed and cigarettes around Royalty and the second hand smoke had given her asthma.

Chris later posted an Instagram post, which said, I quit cigarettes on New Years.  NO ONE smokes around my daughter.”

Chris ended by saying, I take care of my daughter and I would never ever put her in a position that will harm her.”


The judge ruled in Brown’s favor and the joint custody remains. According to TMZ, under the existing custody order, Chris gets 12 days a month with his daughter and it will continue to be unmonitored.

Nia is also aiming to raise the child support. She’s getting $2,500 a month but wants it upped to nearly $16k a month. However, the judge has ordered Brown to continue to pay Guzman $2,500 a month in child support.

Back in September, Guzman, 32, claimed “Brown needed to pay up or she and Royalty would be in the poorhouse.” But no judge so far has honored her request.

Nia also wasn’t happy with the verdict and took to social media to break her silence, alleging that Chris’ mother is the one who told her to take him to court.


Nevertheless, Chris Brown couldn’t be any happier. Last year, he took to twitter saying, Some men my age run from their responsibility as fathers. I embrace mine,” he tweeted.Just sucks that some females use children as meal tickets. Using a child as leverage is never ok. The highest praise to the men who actually want their kids.”

We aint saying she a gold-digger! But…
