Sadly, we probably could have seen this coming from a mile away: The drama surrounding Chris Brown's recent gun-related arrest is far from over, and the legal ramifications can seriously affect his life with his beloved daughter, Royalty.

According to TMZ, Brown is now under investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services because of his assault with a deadly weapon charge in late August. Sources believe that the call that went into DCFS came from Nia Guzman, Royalty's mother.

DCFS was accompanied by LAPD when they arrived at Brown's residence, but Brown reportedly wouldn't cooperate with investigators or even let them in the gate — and Royalty was there at the time.

Though Royalty was reportedly not present at the time of Brown's arrest in August, apparently his custody is still very much in jeopardy.


The arrest "will almost certainly be the basis for additional proceedings in family court over the status of Royalty," legal expert Troy Slaten told E! News, adding that Guzman could fight for sole custody as well as more child support.

"I expect to see movement on the family law case immediately," Slaten told E!. "Guzman can file an emergency petition to have the court act 'in the best interests of the child.'"

Brown was having a house party in August when apparently there was an argument of some sort, leading to a party guest named Baylee Curran calling 911 and reporting that Brown had pulled out a gun on her —but Brown maintains that he is innocent of any wrongdoing related to the date in question.

"You know, because my character's been defaced and who I am as a person and my integrity... I'm glad that all my real supporters know me, and know the truth and see the truth," Brown said in a statement on Good Morning America.
