LOS ANGELES, Sept 23 — Chris Brown’s troubles are far from over, as the Child Protective Services in the US launched an investigation into the musician after his high-profile arrest for gun assault last month.
According to E! Online, a source from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) told NBC News that they tried to visit Brown’s home to check on his two-year-old daughter Royalty.
However, Brown reportedly did not speak to or allow the DCFS officials and police officers to enter his security gate.
TMZ claimed a source told them that Royalty’s mother, Nia Guzman, filed a complaint against the musician after Baylee Curran claimed that Brown pulled a gun on her.
Lawyer Troy Slaten told E! that he believes Guzman will use these charges to launch “additional proceedings in family court over the status of Royalty”.
Slaten also added that Guzman could use Brown’s recent arrest as a basis to petition the court to grant her sole physical custody, as well as ask for more child support.
“I expect to see movement on the family law case immediately. Guzman can file an emergency petition to have the court act ‘in the best interests of the child,’” Slaten said.
Brown’s legal woes does not end there, as he has been refused a visa to enter Japan due to the ongoing investigation.
Japan has very low tolerance for admitting visitors with criminal backgrounds and open cases, a Japanese consulate official told TMZ.
Brown was scheduled to perform in Tokyo next week. His legal team plan to reapply for a visa before his Japan tour dates, according to E!.
