Chris Brown wins joint custody of his daughter Royalty.
Chris Brown is a happy man today (September 11), as he's just been awarded joint custody of his daughter Royalty. The case was decided between Brown and Royalty's mother, Nia Guzman, today in Houston. Guzman had wished to deny Brown joint custody, and she only wanted him visiting Royalty on supervised visits.
As Royalty is now entitled to joint custody, she and Guzman will move to L.A., where she will rotate between each parent's household four days at a time. TMZ also reports that Brown will continue to pay Guzman $2,500 per month, as the judge has denied Guzman's motion to increase the payments to $15,000 monthly.
In advance of the hearing, Brown forced himself to remain disciplined while embarking on his "One Hell of a Nite" tour, and it seems all his hard work has paid off. Brown has also named his next album after his daughter, whom he discovered was his offspring in March.
