Chris Brown and ex Nia Guzman’s court battle over the custody of their 2-year-old daughter Royalty has reached a conclusion, and sources close to Brown told TMZ that Guzman lost out on every single request she made.
According to the website, Guzman, 33, wanted full custody of Royalty. She also requested Brown to submit to a drug test and have monitored visitation. In addition, she wanted to deny Brown’s mom the right to see Royalty. However, despite her attempts, TMZ reported that a California judge denied all her requests. The judge maintained joint custody for the former couple, with the 27-year-old “Loyal” hitmaker continuing to have his daughter for 12 days a month.
When Guzman filed the legal documents asking for a change in custody, the judge ordered Brown to pay her $20,000, so she could afford a lawyer. But since Guzman lost out on all her requests, the judge insisted that she was no longer entitled to the money and gave Brown a credit.
Guzman, who also has a 1-year-old daughter from her previous marriage, was also seeking to increase her child support from $2,500 a month to $15,000 a month. Although there was supposed to be a separate hearing on matters of child support, it was revealed that the former model has now “dismissed her support petition.”
Guzman filed her petition asking for a change in custody in April. A month later, Brown scored his first legal victory after the judge ruled that he could continue his existing custody arrangements over Royalty, Daily Mail reported.
Royalty was born in May 2014. However, the singer's paternity of Royalty wasn't made public until March 2015, when TMZ broke the news that Brown had fathered a child. At the time, the Grammy-winning singer was in a long-term relationship with model Karrueche Tran, who promptly broke up with him following the big revelation.
