There’s a custody battle about to brew! Chris Brown has fallen more and more in love with his daughter, Royalty, and he has plans to raise her all on his own — far away from his baby mama, Nia Guzman-Amey.
Whoa! Chris Brown, 26, doesn’t mess around when it comes to his role as a dad. In fact, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the “Loyal” singer believes he is a much more suitable parent than Royalty‘s mom, Nia Guzman-Amey, 31 — and working towards stripping custody away from her. Read on for all the details on Breezy’s plan to take care of his baby girl all on his own!
While Chris has been keeping Royalty (and Nia!) afloat financially, he plans to only support his daughter from now on. Nia, who has been making an effort to milk Chris for all he’s worth, “better ease up because Chris will only be pushed so far,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Or else he’s going to be pushed so far that he’s going to stop the gravy train and go after full custody himself.”
CB believes Royalty could live a much better life with him in LA, as opposed to living with her mom in Houston, Texas. “Chris is more than able to support his daughter on his own,” the source adds. “He’s got the money and has access to all the help he’d need to raise her and the biggest thing of all – he’s got his mother [Joyce Hawkins]! She is jumping at the opportunity to move in with Chris and help take care of Royalty. She’d love to help raise a kid all over again!”
Even if Joyce can’t pitch in as much as she’d like, the R&B crooner would happily sacrifice his career to focus on caring for his little tyke. “If it really came down to it, Chris would scale back some of his work to make sure he’s present in [Royalty’s] life,” the source explains.
Okay, so Mr. Brown did happen to let one work opportunity get in the way of being their for Royalty’s first birthday — and Nia was obvi not happy about it!
“Nia wanted Chris at Royalty’s party. No excuses! It was her very first birthday, a huge milestone in her life that Chris wasn’t able to witness,” a second source tells us. “She’s upset and disappointed in him and feels he should put all his work obligations on the back burner when it comes to Royalty.”
Royalty celebrated her birthday with Nia and her mom’s boyfriend King Ba and Jas Prince at Chuck E. Cheese, while Chris was busy filming a music video in Miami. We’re sure he has a much more fabulous celebration planned for his daughter. Well, fingers crossed at least!
