It’s no secret that Chris Brown and his baby mama Nia Guzman often butt heads when it comes to their 2-year-old daughter, Royalty. The pair has battled it out in court and lashed out at each other on social media. Now, Guzman is opening up for the first time about co-parenting with the pop star, admitting that it hasn’t been a pleasant experience for her.
According to Guzman, Brown knew all along that he was a father, even though it didn’t become public until last year. “The world didn’t find out about her until a year ago. He always knew about her,” she explained to Latina magazine. “He just wasn’t ready to deal with the situation.”
The former model said it’s been “quite the experience” raising a child with the 27-year-old singer. “I can’t say anything positive about it … at all,” Guzman confessed. “Nothing positive.” The 31-year-old went on to say that she doesn’t think Brown is responsible enough to look after their daughter on his own.
“It’s pretty common sense,” she told the outlet. “He knows. He knows he cannot do it on his own. She’s only 2 [years old], and there’s a lot of work.”
Despite their issues, Guzman insists she’s not trying to take Royalty away from Brown. “It’s nothing hateful, ill or malicious in my bones. I want the best for everybody, and I want peace in everybody’s life,” she said. “I just think a lot of people think I’m just trying to take a child away from her father; that’s never been the case.”
As previously reported, Brown and Guzman had a spat on Instagram earlier this week after she posted a photo of Royalty posing in a tutu and leg warmers after ballet class. Brown ranted on the social networking site that the pose for too “risky” for a toddler, while Guzman accused him of stirring up unnecessary drama. “If anybody thinks something is wrong with a baby… mad at the world in dance class… in her TUTU… U need to go pray! #Namaste,” she wrote.
The pair also faced off in court Tuesday over custody of the little girl. According to TMZ, Guzman accused Brown of being an unfit parent and wanted the court to consider limiting or restricting his time spent with Royalty. The judge, however, denied her request, allowing the singer to keep his 12 days a month with his daughter, all of which will be unsupervised.
