Now that Chris Brown is a dad to 1-year-old daughter Royalty, his fatherly instincts are in full force – making him the prime target for Punk’d.

The R&B singer is one of the first celebrities pranked in the show’s BET reboot, which premieres Aug. 18.

In a clip, Brown, 26, is filming the music video for his song “Moses” with French Montana until a little girl approaches him, claiming her mom dumped her on the set and took off.

The original MTV show, hosted by Ashton Kutcher, aired from 2003-07.
