She wanted to deny Chris any custodial rights and only wanted to give him supervised visitation of their one-year-old baby.
However, the judge disagreed, and awarded Brown with 50/50 physical custody.
Royalty will go back and fourth every four days. Both Chris and Nia now live in L.A.
Since the news broke that he had a child with Guzman, Brown has stepped up to the plate and embraced his new role as dad.
He even named his upcoming album after Royalty.
“I think this was just a blessing in disguise with my daughter because I get a chance to look at her and teach her the right path and also be a father in my daughter’s life,” he told Ryan Seacrest.
“Just to see a smile on her face—just to see the littlest things—is emotional for me, so I just love that aspect of being able to be a father now.”
