Nia Guzman speaks on her issues with Chris Brown in her first interview





Last week Chris Brown publicly slammed his
baby mama Nia Guzman for posting a photo of
their daughter Royalty on IG which he thought
was inappropriate. Speaking in her first
interview since the online battle, Nia opened up
about issues she's having with Chris Brown and
more...

It’s tough to co-parent in any situation, but it’s
got to be a billion times harder your child’s
father is someone in the public eye. What has
it been like for you over the past two years co-
parenting with someone like Chris Brown?
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.
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.
Royalty’s very young. How do you shield her
from all of this now, and what are your plans in
the future as she grows 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.
This week, there was a lot of talk about the
photo of Royalty in her ballet outfit. Did you
think that was going to be as huge as it was,
and why did you think it was important to
respond to Chris?
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.
Did you speak with Chris after that 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.
In addition to the photo going viral, there was
news about the court battle about limiting the
amount of days Chris is allowed to see Royalty.
Does that mean you’re worried about her safety
when she’s with him?
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.
Do you feel like he’s too young and
irresponsible to watch her alone?
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.
So what was his issue with that? That sounds
completely logical.
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.
People have so many misconceptions about
you, and they just throw you into this
stereotype. What’s the most untrue thing you’ve
ever heard about yourself?
Gold-digging. I think this whole money
issue too has been out of control. This
number that people are stuck on, this
$15K, this $16K… that is something that
is legally calculated, from dad’s income.
So, it’s not even a set number. I just
want to have Royalty in a safer home. I
would want it to be not leave to dad, and
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.
And I don’t think that is ok, at all.
