Is Royalty acting out?
In the midst of Chris Brown and his baby mama Nia Guzman’s child support battle, it would seem that Guzman isn’t playing fair. Is the 35-year-old model using young Royalty? Let Wendy Williams tell it, the answer is yes.
According to the talk show host’s sources, Guzman alleges that “Royalty stole $300” from Brown’s mother’s purse. Williams says, according to Guzman, the four-year-old gave her the money “and mentioned, ‘Right here mommy, that is so we will purchase our personal home so I can have my very own room.'”
“When [Royalty] leaves Chris, Chris makes certain she goes again in the identical clothes that her mom dispatched her. At $9000 a month, you can’t tell me she goes back looking like a bum,” Williams continued. “I’m on Chris’ side.”
Unfortunately, Guzman and her lawyer Lisa Bloom aren’t “on Chris’ side.” Brown and Guzman are set to go toe-to-toe in court soon. After Brown reportedly earned over four million dollars within the last two years, Guzman filed to raise her child support payments from its current rate of $5,000 to $18,336.
Guzman’s attorney Lisa Bloom confirmed the mother-of-one’s intensions to PEOPLE early September. Bloom also revealed that Brown’s payments were only recently increased to $5,000 per month, as they were previously $2,500.
Referencing the court hearing that doubled the singer’s monthly payments, Bloom said, “We fought for Royalty and I’m pleased that we won an increase in child support.”
“The legally mandated guideline child support for someone at Brown’s income level is $18,336 per month. That is what Nia is requesting for Royalty,” the attorney said of Guzman’s more recent petition.
Per PEOPLE, Bloom continued:
“Because he has not been paying it, we asked that the judge award that amount retroactive to the date we first requested it, which was Aug. 15, 2017. That would be roughly $190,000 in arrears (Brown is current on his $2,500 per month child support now.) We will continue to fight for that guideline amount for Royalty. We think Chris Brown should be required to follow the law just like everyone else.”
The “Privacy” crooner responded to Guzman and Bloom with documents of his own, arguing that “providing a 4-year-old with everything she demands could be harmful and is not in her best interest.” After noting that Guzman’s previous requests for payment increases were denied, Brown said he would voluntarily agree to pay $9,813.
He also listed the child-related monthly bills he already takes care of, including $6,000 for Royalty’s education, $1,770 for her travel, $419 for her extracurricular activities and more.
