Chris Brown Scores Major Victory in Custody Battle

Breezy has a few more reasons to celebrate.

Chris Brown has scored a major victory in his ongoing custody battle with Nia Guzman, the mother of his two-year-old daughter Royalty, according to TMZ.

Guzman reportedly had all of her requests regarding custody denied in court. She originally wanted full custody, to have Brown monitored during visitations, to ban Brown’s mother from seeing the child, and to have Brown tested for drugs. None of these requests were granted.

Instead, the judge maintained the joint custody system that is currently in place, allowing Brown to have Royalty 12 unmonitored days a month.

When Guzman first filed the documents, the judge asked Brown to front her $20,000 for lawyer fees. With all of her requests denied, the judge said she was no longer entitled to the money, giving Brown credit for that amount.

Another hearing was scheduled for child support issues. Guzman was looking to earn $16,000 a month, a significant increase from the current monthly total, which stands at $2,500. However, after these court losses, Guzman has dismissed the support petition.

This isn’t the first time Brown has won in court over issues regarding custody. A similar verdict was reached back in September, when Guzman claimed Brown was an unfit parent. By October, the two agreed to co-parent, only to publicly feud over parenting disputes in the months to follow.
