The site broke the news March 3, tweeting a picture of a baby and a blurred-out face of the mother. The baby’s mother is a former model, Nia, 31, who is a close friend of Brown’s, according to the website.
DNA tests reportedly proved that Brown is the father. Brown and Nia are not currently a couple, TMZ reported, but are on good terms and have reached an undetailed financial arrangement.
Brown’s current girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, appeared less enthusiastic at the news, writing on Twitter: “Listen. One can only take so much. The best of luck to Chris and his family. No baby drama for me.”
Brown and Tran have not been on good terms recently, according to TMZ. When the news broke, Brown reportedly tried calling her, but she did not pick up.
Brown is currently on his “Between the Sheets Tour,” along with singer Trey Songz and rapper Tyga, through March 19.
