Sources close to the case tell the outlet that Nia Guzman recently hired attorney Lisa Bloom and filed documents in California to modify the child support she receives from Brown for their daughter, Royalty.
The R&B star, who currently gets supervised visits, pays $2,500 per month in support and another $4,000 for a nanny, who happens to be Nia’s mother, the report states.
According to the documents, Guzman claims Brown has earned $4,269,067 over the last two years. Under the guidelines for child support in California, which is based off income, she believes her monthly payments should be increased to $21,000 plus.
She also claims she is owed $250,000 in retroactive child support.

However, Brown is convinced that his ex is simply making a money grab, and he plans on fighting her over the increase.
Guzman needs the increase because she’s drowning in monthly expenses and bills, including $3,300 in rent, $3,500 in food and $4,500 in clothes and entertainment for the 4-year-old. She says things have been so bad, she can’t afford to splurge on certain activities for Royalty, such as a trip to Disney.
As for her own income, Nia says she only makes around $400 per month from an online clothing store inspired by her daughter.
The judge in the case agreed with Guzman but couldn’t order the new support amount because the court needs to review all of Brown’s financial documents about income. A decision could come as early as next week, per The Blast.
