Chris Brown Reluctant To Increase Child Support Payments
Nia Guzman is seeking an increase in monthly payments for their daughter.
Chris Brown and ex-partner Nia Guzman are locked in a legal battle over child support payments for their 4-year-old daughter, Royalty.
The Blast has reported that Guzman is seeking an increase in monthly payments in accordance with child support guidelines in California – which are based on a calculation of the parents’ incomes.
According to documents filed by Guzman’s new lawyer, Brown allegedly earned $4,269,067 (USD) in the last two years -- which would mean he’s averaging over $350k per month.
Brown is currently paying $6,500 per month, and Guzman is hoping to increase that figure to $21,000, and also claim $250,000 in retroactive payments.
However, Brown thinks this figure is too steep and is claiming that amount of money “could be harmful” to Royalty.
Brown -- who only has access to Royalty via guided visitation -- is apparently willing to pay up to $9,813 in child support.
Guzman -- who cares for Royalty full time -- reported that she's only earning $400 per month via her online clothing store.
The case is ongoing.
