Chris Brown Granted Joint Custody Of His Daughter Royalty
Check out the video of Chris re-uniting with daughter Royalty after the decision was made!
Chris Brown is celebrating after a court has granted him joint custody of his daughter Royalty. The battle with babymama Nia Guzman has been raging for a while now, but a judge has just decided to allow Brown at least partial parenthood over his child. Royalty's last name was also decided on -- she'll be following in her daddy's footsteps as a Brown.
Brown will have a hard time skipping out on the little girl (as many expect him to eventually do). According to TMZ, he'll be expected to pay $2,500 a month in child support and $15k in back support. He'll also be footing the bill for her health insurance, schooling, medical bills and nannies.
TMZ also noted that Brown was submitted to a drug test and came back positive for both weed and codeine, claiming he had a prescription for both. Despite only being given access to Royalty for 12 days per month, Brown obviously feels good about the decision that was reached. He tweeted this yesterday:
Brown was vocal about his stance on parenthood in a tweet he sent out during the custody battle:
Billboard noted that Brown will be naming his upcoming album after his daughter. Royalty is expected to be released late this year or early 2016. Check out this video of Chris re-uniting with Royalty after the decision was made, below!
