Chris Brown granted joint custody daughter

Chris Brown has been granted joint custody of his daughter Royalty.

The 26-year-old singer had been embroiled in a bitter court battle with Nia Guzman over their 15-month-old child and according to ABC 13 News, a Houston judge has now ruled that the pair will share custody of the tot.

He will continue to pay $2,500 a month child support, with the judge denying Nia's request to increase the payments to $15,000.

Despite incidents - including an armed robbery at his Los Angeles home in July, when he was out of the city - Chris has insisted he is a good father and fought Nia's efforts to restrict custody of his daughter to just supervised visits.

Nia previously requested full custody, claiming Chris' parenting and lifestyle are not conducive to raising a child.

According to previous reports, Chris' lawyers were set to argue that he never puts his daughter in harm's way and following the break-in at his home, he has also increased security.

He was further believed to be planning to argue that he has never used drugs around his daughter and nor has he allowed so-called “gang-bangers” to spend time with his child.
