It’s not often we here Chris Brown’s baby momma, Nia Guzman, in the news.Every now and then we’ll see her in the media but for the most part she’s pretty much been laying under the radar… Until now! I’m guessing Nia got tired of being dragged in the media so she sat down with Latina.com, and let’s just say she spilled endless tea!
The interview started off with asking Nia what’s it like co-parenting with a high profile celebrity:
“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.”
The question that we all wanted to know! Why did she keep Royalty a secret for so long?
“Like you said, we didn’t know about Royalty until she was a year old. Why did you choose to keep that news private? It was just on both parts. 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.”
With Royalty being so young, the magazine was curious to know how Nia plans on protecting her daughter from all of this when she gets older?
“I want to keep her as normal as possible on my end. I’m not a millionaire like daddy, so of course it is going to be regular on my side. It’s just going to take a lot of talking and just getting her to know right from right and wrong from wrong, and not be some spoiled little rich kid out here just thinking that the world is hers and she can do whatever she wants. I don’t want her to self-destruct. I want her to be raised normal.”
Now we all saw Chris going off about Royalty’s ballet outfit last week! He didn’t think it was appropriate for her age. The magazine asked her about it and apparently Chris saw the outfit before it was posted online!
“I mean the fact that I had just spoken with him. He had already seen a video of her on her way to ballet class. To make that remark online, was totally insane to me. Because I have a phone. I have a phone, and I tried over and over and over to co-parent, to try and get this right. It went global! The picture’s everywhere! I personally saw nothing wrong with it. She always dresses like that to dance class. It was a cute picture, she had just finished dance, she was pouting. It was a funny moment, and she was leaned back looking at me because she was totally pissed off, because it was time to go. She was done with the class, but she didn’t want to leave. She just wanted to sit there. So, that’s the moment that I captured and it was funny to me! I don’t sexualize a toddler, or think of my children in any way like that. So for the backlash of that… I didn’t understand it.”
Latina.com didn’t stop there they asked her if she spoke with Chris after the comment:
“No. After that comment, I don’t think there’s going to be anything good in talking, so we just don’t. When it’s that far, it’s just rather nobody talks because me and him are both firecrackers, and then nobody gets anything accomplished but yelling. And it’s just a place that I don’t want to be.”
Now we all seen in the blogs that Nia was trying to limit the number of days Chris has with his daughter. Nia’s answer may surprise you,
“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 in place right now, his days that he gets her, was agreed upon. I agreed to that. That’s what I wanted for him. It wasn’t court ordered or anything like that, all the way from the first agreement. It was agreed. And so this time around, all I wanted was a set nanny in place, that’s all I was wanting. I never 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.”
When it comes to Chris watching her child, she says Chris is the unfit parent.
“It’s pretty common sense. He knows. He knows he cannot do it on his own. She’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.”
Now there was a time that Chris and Nia were good… So what happened?
“We had mutual acquaintances, that’s how we met, probably a good five or six years ago. And it was always just a friendship, and it was just nothing more, nothing less. It was just a friendship. And not until the custody issues were raised, that’s when we stopped talking and negativity started. But in the beginning of all this, it was all love. We both went through breakups, we both dealt with them, we both checked on each other throughout everything going on. And then to be here now is just really… is just really crazy, and it’s really hurtful. I don’t know how to get back to the way we were, until time can heal that.”
Now Royalty is definitely cute but many of us don’t know how Chris came up with her name, but Nia breaks it all down,
“I think he explained it. It was what he was going through in his life, it was what he was dealing with being a father. And he wanted to dedicate that part of his life to her. And that’s his way of expressing how he feels. I can’t say that I agreed or disagreed with it. I expressed my fears when I found out about the album cover, just of it being everywhere and her face being more out there. And the fan base, more of what she was going to have. And being that we’re not in a safe environment. I’m in a place where people can walk in and out of. It’s a pretty normal place, and I had asked, can we please figure this out until I’m able to move into safer grounds, but he went ahead with it anyway. That’s why we’re here now [laughs].”
