Not long after the news of Chris and Nia’s desire to co-parent Royalty made headlines, Chris Brown’s fans took to Twitter and Instagram to speculate on whether or not there may be a romantic connection between Chris and his baby mama.
According to The Shade Room, Chris Brown reached out to the site’s Instagram account to swiftly shut down any rumors of a growing relationship between himself and Guzman, telling the site, “Co-parenting. Not ‘TOGETHER’. Clearing this up so there isn’t any confusion.”
While Chris Brown may be agreeing to co-parent Royalty with Guzman, fans were quick to point out that Brown seemed very adamant about not romantically tying himself to his baby mama.
The news comes just one month after Chris Brown was awarded joint custody of Royalty despite Nia Guzman’s attempt to prevent Chris Brown from receiving any type of legal custody for their daughter after Chris’ home was broken into earlier this year.
Chris Brown took to Twitter just prior to his custody battle with Guzman to insinuate that Nia was using daughter Royalty as a “meal ticket” in order to extort more child support money from him each month, People reports.
“Some men my age run from their responsibility as fathers. I embrace mine. Just sucks that some females use children as meal ticket.”
While Guzman expressed her concern over allowing Royalty to be left in Brown’s care without legal supervision, the court ruled that Chris Brown would be allowed to see his daughter 12 days out of each month without the need for supervised visitation.
In addition, Chris Brown is responsible for paying Royalty’s schooling, health insurance, medical bills, and nannies while also paying Guzman $2,500 for monthly child support.
While Chris Brown may have shot down rumors of a budding relationship with Nia Guzman, recent rumors have also suggested that Chris is still trying to reconcile with longtime girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
Karrueche called off her relationship with Chris Brown in March after learning of Chris Brown’s father status, and she has continually denied Chris’ attempts to get back together.
However, sources close to Chris Brown have recently revealed that Brown is solely focused on raising daughter Royalty and no longer has an interest in reuniting with Karrueche Tran.
