Chris Brown Tests Positive for Drugs

The custody battle over Chris Brown's daughter, Royalty, is finally over; a judge awarded him joint physical and legal custody. He also tested positive for both weed and codeine during the hearing, but Breezy got off easy - apparently, he has a prescription for both!

It’s official: Chris Brown is Health Street’s dream client! We do a lot of drug tests, and we do a lot of paternity tests, but we rarely get someone who is so prone to needing both! He is like a Health Street vision of perfection! But seriously….the singer has now been granted joint physical and legal custody of his 1 year old daughter, Royalty, with ex-girlfriend Nia Guzman. He also happened to test positive for both weed and codeine during the hearing, but he reportedly has prescriptions for each. Nothing quite says “welcome to fatherhood” like a positive drug test, right?

All in all, the hearing went well for both parties; Brown was finally able to establish his biological fatherhood through a legal paternity test, thus bestowing his daughter with his last name at long last (as opposed to Guzman’s husband’s last name). He is also said to have been awarded 12 days a month with Royalty without the supervision that was requested by Guzman. Clearly, his positive urine drug tests had absolutely no impact on the judge’s determination of Brown’s fitness to parent Royalty.

While things may have gone Brown’s way for the most part, he will not be able to escape paying Guzman $2,500 per month, as well as for all of Royalty’s schooling, health insurance, medical bills and nannies. He’ll also have to pony up $15K in back child support, despite his initial attempts to get out of paying. He’s a multi platinum star, however, so don’t expect anyone to cry crocodile tears.

Things ended on a high note, though, as Brown posted sweet shots of his sleeping tot on Instagram saying,

I’m so happy with OUR outcome today! #IloveMyZillahandRoyalty #ParentsFirstBulls**tLast #WeLoveRoyalty.
