It’s a good day for Chris Brown! The singer peacefully settled his custody agreement with Nia Guzman, and his daughter, Royalty, will officially be taking his last name. Get the scoop on what arrangement the pair came to in mediation!
Chris Brown’s daughter finally has an official name: Royalty Brown! The “Loyal” singer and Nia Guzman agreed on the terms of their daughter’s custody arrangement, and agreed that the one-year-old will take Chris’ last name. Find out the details here!
Nia and Chris met in mediation on Sept. 28 to try and hash out the details without a judge, and they’ve come to an agreement. Not only will Royalty’s name officially be recognized as “Royalty Brown,” with no middle name, but it’s been set in stone where she’ll spend time each month.
The pair decided on join physical and legal custody, with the 26-year-old getting his daughter 12 days a month with no supervised visitation, according to TMZ. Chris will also play Nia $2,500 a month along with $15,000 in back support. In addition, he’ll be paying for the adorable toddler’s schooling, health insurance, medical bills and nannies.
Chris and Nia have been battling over what the arrangement with their daughter would be for months, and on Sept. 11, they met in court to take the next step. At that time, Chris received his first big victory when a judge awarded him 50/50 custody even though Nia tried to deny him any custodial rights and only give him supervised visitation. The singer was SO thrilled about the outcome, and we can only imagine how excited he is now that his little girl officially has his name, too. The duo are now just waiting a judge’s approval on their settlement.
Needless to say, Chris is pretty happy about how things worked out today. He even took to Twitter after things were settled and wrote, “Court went great today. Glad this all worked out.” And we are, too! Nia is thrilled, as well, and wrote on Instagram after the meeting, “Sending my thank you to my legal team. I’m so happy with OUR outcome today! #ILoveMyZillahAndRoyalty #ParentsFirstBullshitLast #WeLoveRoyaltly.” See, even after all these two have been through, even they know that putting parenting first is most important!
