Chris Brown is the proud father of a 9-month-old baby girl … TMZ has learned.
The baby’s mother is a 31-year-old former model named Nia — who we’re told has known Chris for several years.
Sources connected to both Nia and Chris tell us they are on very good terms — however they’re not together romantically.
We’re told 25-year-old Chris is happy about being a father.
It does not appear there is a formal child support order in place and we do not know the nature of any informal terms of support.
One thing’s for sure…baby girl looks a lot like Daddy.
Considering this news is from TMZ which, despite the amount of news they do manage to get right, is still a gossip site it’s probably worth taking this rumor with big, fat grain of salt.
To their credit, though, TMZ did include a photo of the child, noting that she 9 month old does look similar to Brown.
Fans were shocked after news broke of Chris Brown fathering a 9-month-old girl with a model friend named Nia, and fans have unearthed a tweet of Karrueche asking about the woman before news broke.
At first, people suspected that the image of the now-deleted
“Y’all know a Nia?”
tweet was a fake, but one of Karrueche’s followers submitted a reply that she sent three days ago, which seems to prove the legitimacy of the message.
Chris’ longtime girlfriend has yet to speak out on the news of her boyfriend’s alleged new baby.
RiRi was initially shocked (of course), but the Barbadian beauty believes that 25-year-old Brown will certainly do the right thing:
“Rihanna is shocked and had to read the reports four times before it finally sunk in… But first things first, and that’s that if it’s true, Chris will be a good father and take care of his little girl.”
“That’s a big responsibility and something that requires a lot of work, energy and love… She wishes him all the best in this new and very important chapter in his life.”
Though Brown has yet to confirm the claim, reports of him fathering a child might put yet another wedge into his relationship with current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran.
It’s no secret that Tran always wanted to start a family of her own (probably with Breezy). How heartbreaking – will the couple finally break-up for good now?
We’ll keep you posted on the outcome of all this.
