Well, this should change a few things.
At least we hope so. Chris Brown just recently got the surprise of a lifetime when he found out he is the father of a 9-month-old baby girl. TMZ reportedly found out the singer is happy about being a father. The baby’s mother is a model named Nia, 31, whom Brown has reportedly known for years.
TMZ says the two are on good terms but are not romantically involved. The 25-year-old rapper has been on-again-off-again with model Karrueche Tran since 2011, but Brown’s most famous ex, singer Rihanna, responded to the news with the utmost professional and mature response ever.
Hollywood Life reported that an insider told them she was “shocked” and said, “[She] had to read the reports four times before it finally sunk in.” Of course, they continued, saying, ” …if it’s true, Chris will be a good father and take care of his little girl.”
Rihanna is much more judicious than I would have been given not only his terrible track record of taking care of his loved ones, but most recently, his interview with The Breakfast Club just a week and a half ago. The one where he said his ideal situation would have been to get Rihanna and Tran pregnant at the same time. On the morning show, he was asked about having kids, and he said, “At the time when I was doing my wam wam with both [Rihanna and Karrueche Tran], get both of them, then boom, I’m good. That would be my ultimate boom!”
Well, isn’t that pleasant?
Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.
So, while we don’t have any details about formal child support or legal confirmation that this cute little girl is actually his, given his track record on the subject, I wouldn’t really find it a huge surprise if she is his child.
Maybe this will cause the outburst-driven, tantrum-throwing, domestic abuser to grow up and take responsibility for his actions.
UPDATE (March 4): Karrueche Tran has responded to the news:
UPDATE (March 5): According to TMZ, Nia named the kid Royalty.
