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.
