It was a good day in court for Chris Brown on Monday as his custody battle with his baby’s mother, Nia Guzman, came to a close.

“Court went great today. Glad this all worked out,” Brown, 26, tweeted.

The court decided that the pair’s 15-month-old daughter, Royalty, will share her father’s last name and split her time between each parent, with the singer getting 12 days per month, TMZ reports.

It’s reported that Brown will be required to pay $2,500 a month in child support along with financing the tot’s schooling, health insurance, medical bills and nannies.

According to TMZ, Brown underwent a drug test which came back positive for marijuana and codeine, but the star had a prescription for both and supervised visitation will not be required.

Since confirming rumors about fathering a child earlier this year, Brown has remained very active in the baby girl’s life, even naming his next album after her. He’s also been vocal with his opinion on his responsibility as a father.

“Some men my age run from their responsibility as fathers. I embrace mine. Just sucks that some females use children as meal ticket,” Brown tweeted in the midst of the custody battle.
