Chris Brown is one happy celebrity dad after officially being awarded joint custody of his daughter, Royalty. The R&B singer tweeted the good news of his triumph in court on Monday.
“Court went great today. Glad this all worked out,” wrote Brown on Twitter. It was decided by a judge that Chris would retain equal rights as a parent and have the opportunity to see Royalty twelve days per month without supervision. In addition, Chris must pay for Royalty’s schooling, medical bills and daycare. The singer will also be required to pay the child’s mother, Nia Guzman, $15,000 in back child support and $2,500 per month.
Guzman was initially trying to obtain sole custody of Royalty by citing Chris as an unfit parent. According to Nia, Chris’ behavior and the company that he kept were not conducive to Royalty’s growth. A judge, however, saw things differently a few weeks ago and ordered Nia to refrain from bashing Chris on social media sites. He also awarded Brown with joint custody of Royalty contingent upon the singer passing a random drug test.
Of course, Chris passed with flying colors and may now spend quality time with his daughter without supervision. Royalty is Chris Brown and Nia Guzman’s only child together.
