Ever since Chris Brown first revealed earlier this year that he fathered a daughter, Royalty, with a woman named Nia Guzman, the pop superstar has proudly claimed his daughter as his own and was even embroiled in a heated custody battle with Guzman to ensure that he would be able to co-parent their daughter. However, Brown wasn’t always aware that Royalty was his daughter and in a new cover feature for Vibe magazine, Brown reveals some surprising details on the matter.
In the interview, Brown discusses becoming a father and explains that he suspected that Royalty was his before Guzman confirmed it. However, she initially led him to believe that he wasn’t the father.
“I had thought about it. I had saw pictures, and I was like ‘D—.’ So I asked, and [Nia] was like ‘Nah, it’s not you.’ So I was like cool, I didn’t think it was an issue,” Brown revealed.
However, Guzman eventually told the truth.
“But when I found out, it was kind of like, ‘D—, she looks just like me.’ And I didn’t care about how me and her mother didn’t have a relationship, I didn’t care about any situation. I just wanted to see her. I just wanted to be able to have that opportunity, as something personal to me. I’m not gonna be upset, I’m not gonna be mad. I have to be honest with myself and pick the priorities over the situation. I had to make my priority my daughter.”
And it indeed seems like his daughter has now become the center of his world.
