Chris Brown granted joint custody of 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 aren't 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's 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 gangbangers to spend time with his child.
