Chris Brown and his baby mama Nia Guzman are still fighting with one another, and it seems their on-going battle just took a turn for the worse. The "Loyal" singer, who's expected to appear in court on Friday with Guzman to work out a custody agreement for their 1-year-old daughter Royalty, has reportedly filed documents seeking a gag order to keep the model from bashing him in public. 

According to TMZ, Brown is tired of Guzman bashing him to the media and on Instagram, so the singer wants a court-appointed gag order to stop her from publicly lashing out. Sources close to the situation tell the site Guzman thinks Brown's gag order is a "joke" because the only time she slams him is when he attacks her first. The source also claims the battle between Brown and Guzman is "gonna get nasty."

As previously reported, the 26-year-old singer went on an Instagram rant last month slamming Guzman after her now ex-boyfriend King Ba had a warrant issued for his arrest for allegedly forging more than $5,000 in U.S. Treasury Checks. Brown wrote that Guzman saying she didn't feel safe with Royalty being left alone with him "contradicts everything."

“All that safety talk and not allowing me to see my daughter contradicts everything. Funny how I work a legit job and love my daughter to the fullest and I’m in her life," Brown posted. "Well, if it ain’t the pot calling the kettle black. #goddontlikeugly.” Guzman reportedly responded on Instagram, writing "What's funny is I'm a single mother... I moved away from Houston... He is a single man! Tuhhhhh @chrisbrownofficial." Her rep also issued a statement saying the 31-year-old model and King Ba have not dated each other "for several months."

The singer also lashed out at his baby mama in August, accusing her of trying to use their daughter as a "meal ticket." "Some men my age run from their responsibility as fathers," Brown tweeted, "I embrace mine. Just sucks that some females use children as meal tickets."

Besides Brown seeking a gag order, the singer will also use his time in court to ask the judge for joint custody of Royalty. Guzman reportedly also wants to see if her child support payments could be bumped up to $15,000 a month, instead of $2,500.
