How sweet! Chris Brown goes by ‘CB’ and ‘Breezy’ but his ex, Rihanna, has given him a new nickname. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop on what RiRi calls Breezy and why it’ll always remind him of his daughter, Royalty.
Chris Brown, 26, has many names to go along with his many talents. Fans can call him CB or Breezy, but the “Ayo” singer has a new moniker, thanks to Rihanna, 27. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE on RiRi’s pet name for Chris and how it’s all because of his baby girl, Royalty!
Royalty is not only the inspiration behind Chris’s new album title. It turns out she also gave Rihanna the idea for her new nickname for Chris. “Rihanna doesn’t call Chris ‘Chris’ anymore,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “She’s nicknamed him ‘Daddy’ and that’s what she now calls him.”
Wow. While calling someone “Daddy” might have a little sex appeal behind it — remember “Big Poppa” by Biggie Smalls? — Rihanna’s nickname for Chris is more of a reminder that he needs to keep his focus on his baby girl. “She nicknamed him that to reinforce to him that [being a dad] is his number one responsibility,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com. “She doesn’t want him to ever forget that or be distracted. He’s Daddy for life, now that he has a child.”
Well, Chris seems to be taking his “Daddy” role seriously. He was smiling from ear to ear when he reunited with Royalty on Aug. 22. Plus, Chris has said that Royalty will be the woman who “will teach [him] how to become a man.” But, in case Breezy feels like straying from his fatherly duties, Rihanna will be there to help him keep his head straight.
“She wants him to constantly hear the words ‘Daddy’ so he will subconsciously know that’s who he’s been put on this earth to be,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com. “Not Chris the singer. Not Chris the dancer. But Chris the lover. The father. The daddy.”
Rihanna may have gotten the idea to call Chris “Daddy” after seeing pictures of his little girl. “He texted several pictures of himself playing with Royalty,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com, “and her heart skipped a beat. She was floored by how happy and caring he was in those photographs.” It moved Rihanna so much, she said she wanted to come over and tuck them both in for the night!
