In his new cover story with VIBE, Chris Brown gives some insight about just how he learned about his daughter, Royalty. As you know, earlier this year he revealed that he has a child with a woman named Nia Guzman. In the interview he explains that a photo of Royalty had led him to believe that he in fact may be the child’s father.
I had thought about it. I had saw pictures, and I was like ‘Damn.’ 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. But when I found out, it was kind of like, ‘Damn, 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.
Brown also opens up about his evolving relationship with his mother, Joyce Hawkins,
She spent most of her life trying to take care of me, and I think once I got famous and I had a position, I spent most of my life trying to take care of her. So we would fight, and I would rebel. Because as a man, I wanted to be the one [making] the rules. But I’m still her son.
