Chris Brown Joint Custody royalty


Chris Brown has won joint custody of his and Nia Guzman’s one-year-old daughter Royalty. A Houston judge decided on Friday that the rapper and his baby mama are to share equal time with their child.

The judge ruled strongly in Brown’s favor over Guzman with whom he’s been in a custody battle. Brown was ordered to pay $2,500 a month in child support, which is what he’s already paying. That figure is far less than the $15,000 a month that Guzman had sought. And despite Guzman wanting Brown to only have limited and supervised visits with Royalty, the judge ruled their daughter will split her time 50-50 their respective Los Angeles homes.

Additionally, Guzman has been warned not to discuss the details of the court case on social media and to not to publicly defame Brown. The decision was, by all accounts, a huge victory for Brown.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Guzman filed papers in August, originally seeking that Brown’s visits with Royalty be supervised because she doesn’t trust the singer to be left alone with their daughter. Among her allegations were that Brown and the people with whom he surrounds himself have substance abuse issues.

At one point, as Gossip Cop noted, Brown was even willing to pay $10,000 a month in child support but that deal fell apart.
