In a recent interview with Latina.com, Chris Brown’s baby mama, Nia Guzman talked about the struggle to co-parent under the unforgiving media lens.
Recall, Nia lost the custody battle of her daughter, Royalty, to Chris Brown.
Read excerpt from her interview below.
On keeping Royalty a secret
Well, the world didn’t find out about her until a year ago. He always knew about her, he just wasn’t ready to deal with the situation. But, it’s been quite the experience. I can’t say anything positive about it… at all. Nothing positive.I knew what the outcome was going to be once it came out. I was very fearful for… everything that’s going on now. I know that he’s young, he’s wild, and he has the bad boy persona, and I just knew that it just wasn’t going to be the best situation. And if I could have still kept it quiet until now, I would have.
On trying to limit Chris Brown’s time with Royalty
No. That’s the false story. I didn’t go back to court to limit his time, at all. That’s never what I wanted. What’s wanted to limit his time or take any of his time from him. I totally want him to be hands on with her, and be a father, and try and get it more focused, and leave all the other bullsh-t that he has going on, alone. “I just want to have Royalty in a safer home. I would want it to be not leave to dad, not be in a mansion, and huge playrooms and backyards and TV rooms, and then she comes home with me and you know, she’s in a small apartment. I just want to keep her balanced. He feels like she should have everything when she’s with him, and limited when she’s with me. I don’t think that is okay, at all.”
On feeling Chris is too young and irresponsible to watch her alone
It’s pretty common sense. He knows. He knows he cannot do it on his own. he’s only two, and she’s a lot of work. I just wanted a nanny in place when she was with him, and it be agreed upon. It’s not like I was just going to throw anybody in there, it was something that we would agree, and this was what it was going to be, and then we go forth.
On Chris’s reason for not wanting a nanny
I don’t really know what the issue is with that. I could throw around all kinds of speculations, I could totally bash the situation. I’m not going to do that. I won’t do that. Everything that’s put out there, I don’t even have to explain it.
