1.01♥ Joyce, this is Hawkins, okay? You wanna know that worst thing that’s ever happened here in the four years I’ve been working here? Do you wanna know the worst thing? It was when an owl attacked Eleanor Gillespie’s head because it thought that her hair was a nest.
The controversial singer, 28, brought his 3-year-old mini-me as his date to the premiere of Chris Brown: Welcome to My Life at LA Live in Los Angeles on Tuesday. It’s a documentary, which hits theaters on Thursday, in which he tells his story of his “triumphs” and “struggles,” the latter of which we are all too familiar with.

Brown told a reporter on the red carpet that the reason he brought Royalty was because, “She is my life. She’s a part of my life in all aspects. I thought music was at first. She’s number one, then it’s the music. Bringing her here, I wanted to show her that Daddy’s cool, I guess.”
In the same interview, Brown spoke about seeing his life — the good and the bad — play out on the big screen. “My imperfections — I’ve been able to be OK with them,” said Brown, who was convicted for the felony assault of Rihanna in 2009. “I internalize it. How I live my life is all about learning.”

Hawkins, who is better known as “Meme” to young Royalty, later shared a photo of her granddaughter posing and playing in her premiere dress back at home. She referred to the child, who has the sweetest smile, as “Meme’s angel.”

While it was a rare outing on the red carpet for the toddler, it’s not her first. In May 2015, a month after Brown acknowledged that Royalty was his child, he brought her to the Billboard Music Awards.
The singer shares custody of Royalty, whom he named his 2015 album after, with her mother Nia Guzman, getting the child 12 days each month. That was worked out during a messy series of court dates. Soon after, her said, “I take care of my daughter fully… I take great pride in being a father. I love my daughter.”
Brown’s legal issues continue beyond spats with Guzman. Last summer, he was accused of pulling a gun on a beauty queen after a wild night at his house. He was never charged. Brown’s most recent legal troubles stem from his on-again, off-again relationship with Karrueche Tran, who had been seeking a permanent restraining order against him.
