Chris Brown and Nia Guzman, you deserve to be high-fived for doing what good parents are supposed to do — getting along and making the best decisions for your daughter.
Chris Brown and Nia Guzman, you reached a successful conclusion to your court-ordered mediation over custody of your daughter Royalty, today, Sept. 28. You both deserve to be congratulated. You went from waging a nasty war on social media and in news outlets, to the both of you taking to social media to declare how happy you are with your final joint custody agreement.
“Court went great today. Glad this is all worked out,” you tweeted, Chris. Nia, not to be outdone, you went to Instagram to post a photo of yourself with your legal team, thanking all of them. “I’m so happy with OUR outcome today,” you announced. Well, Chris and Nia, I can tell you who’s especially going to be happy — your little girl, Royalty. That’s because she’s no longer caught in the middle of a tug-of-war between the two people she loves most in the world.
You two have agreed to joint physical and legal custody of Royalty. Her last name has been legally changed to Brown. Chris, you will pay Nia $2,500 a month in child support, plus pay for Royalty’s schooling, health insurance, medical bills and nannies. Chris, you’ll have your darling 15 month old, 12 days a month, which probably works out well with your demanding travel schedule. This is a win-win for all of you — Chris, Nia and Royalty. Now, Chris and Nia, you can both concentrate on being the best parents possible for your precious daughter.

That means for both of you, being sober, loving, and attentive parents , and very importantly, working together to plan the best future for Royalty. Chris, 26, our insiders tell us that you can’t wait to do the normal everyday things with Royalty: take her to the park to play, have “play dates” with her and friends, go with her to swim lessons and art classes, and just spend time hanging out and snuggling together. Now, you can do all these things, without having the nagging fear that you could lose your daughter at any time. Or that you have to beg and negotiate with Nia to see her.
Nia, 36, you now have the certainty of knowing how much money you’ll receive from Chris monthly, plus you won’t have to worry about school, nanny and health expenses. This is the best of all possible outcomes. Now you two can stop being adversaries and can unite to give Royalty all the love and structure that she needs.
Hollywoodlifers — do you agree that this is the best possible result for Nia, Chris AND Royalty? Let me know.
