Chris Brown granted joint custody of daughter in Texas

HOUSTON (AP) — A judge has granted R&B singer Chris Brown joint custody of his young daughter in Texas.

A judge in Houston on Friday agreed with Brown's request to share custody of the toddler, Royalty, with the child's mother, Nia Guzman.

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos (GEHR'-uh-gohs), says Guzman previously had primary custody of the girl, who was born about 16 months ago in Houston.

Brown must continue monthly child support payments of $2,500. Guzman had sought $15,000 per month.

Guzman now lives in Los Angeles. Geragos says Brown is a resident of Virginia.

Both parents were in court Friday. Brown performed Thursday night in Dallas.
