Chris Brown has been loving life as a new father, but now he may be forced to deal with a BIG threat — having no rights to Royalty. HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned that although Breezy is Royalty’s biological father, he may not get custody.
Chris Brown, 25, is trying his best to prove to Nia Guzman-Amey, 31, and Royalty, 10 months, that he’s here to stay. But there’s an issue, according to a report, he isn’t on his daughter’s birth certificate, thus complicating the situation when it comes to having legal rights to her.
Chris Brown & Royalty: May Not Get Custody Rights
Chris wants custody of his daughter Royalty, but it won’t be easy. According to a new report from TMZ, Breezy isn’t listed as the father on her birth certificate. In fact, Nia’s boyfriend, Brazil Riesling, aka King Ba, is instead. So, where does that leave Chris?
“If Chris Brown’s name is not on the birth certificate, and instead Brazil Riesling (aka King Ba) is listed as the Father, the latter has legal rights to the child,” Los Angeles attorney Mychal Wilson explains to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Arguably, because Chris Brown is not listed on the birth certificate (according to TMZ) he has no rights to custody, visitation, or paying child support. Nia has the right to request the court to change the name of the father on Royalty’s birth certificate.”
The attorney went on to tell us, “However, the DNA tests show that Chris Brown is the biological father so he could go to court and fight to get his name on the birth certificate. If Chris wanted to take this court, he would have to first take a DNA test, go to court and have the judge decide.” Knowing Chris, he’s ready to fight tooth and nail for rights to his daughter!
Chris May Not Look Like A Fit Father In The Eyes Of The Court
That’s not all, according to our source, Chris’ legal past may be a huge deciding factor in this case.
“Just because Chris is the biological father it doesn’t mean that he automatically gets rights,” adds Mychal. “The judge may look at his past record which includes domestic violence, and decide he’s not a fit father. He may not be awarded with custody rights or even visitation rights. So, it makes sense that Chris would want to do this outside of court.”
It’s scary to know that Chris’ past may come back to haunt him in regards to his daughter. We hope this issue gets solved ASAP for Royalty’s sake.
