Chris Brown's 4-year-old daughter Royalty Brown reportedly stole $300 from her grandmother, Joyce Hawkins's purse, according to court records obtained by The Blast.

Lying and stealing from a parent (or grandparent) are usually early indicators that a child is headed for a life of crime.

Parent.com explains what you can do if you catch your child or grandchild stealing from you.

Hardened criminals who were interviewed by prison psychiatrists say the earliest memory they had of criminal behavior was stealing money out of their mother's. purses -- and lying about it when caught.

LYING

Child experts say lying and stealing are usually attention-seeking behaviors.

Small children live in a world that's difficult for them to manage and in which they often stand accused of doing damage of one kind or another. Denying wrongdoing is therefore their most usual kind of lie and the kind that most often gets them into trouble. Your child breaks his sister's doll by mistake. Faced with it, he denies the whole incident. Your are probably angrier with him for the lie than you are about the breakage.

Penelope Leach, Ph.D. suggests urging your child to own up to their behavior without confronting them or accusing them of wrongdoing.

If a doll is broken, saying "This doll is broken. I wonder what happened?" is more likely to get a response such as, "I broke it, I'm sorry" than if you say "You've broken this doll, haven't you, you naughty, careless boy."

STEALING

Stealing is much more problematic -- although some parents might agree that children who steal and lie are equally troublesome.

Child experts say stealing is more prevalent among "only" children who have no siblings.

Many young children -- especially those with no older brothers and sisters to keep asserting "That's mine!" -- are as vague about property rights as they are about truth.

An only child or a child who is not socialized at an early age with same age children often lack boundaries about what is theirs and what belongs to others.

Outside the family there are complications too. It is all right to keep the little ball you found in the bushes in the park but it is not all right to keep a purse. It is all right to bring your painting home from nursery school but not a piece of play dough.

Experts suggest having a discussion about property rights with your children as young as 2 or 3.

You might find it useful to separate the issue of principle from the complexities of daily behavior. Discuss the first and have some rules to guide the second, such as: don't bring anything away from somebody else's house without asking; always ask a grown-up if you may keep anything you find; don't pick anything up in a store unless a grown-up says it's all right.

When it comes to money, experts say don't put more emphasis on money than you would a tube of lipstick.

To young children both are the same. Treasure. They know money is precious, of course, because they hear you talking about it and see you exchanging it for nice things. But to children, money is like those tokens you put in slot machines; they have no concept of real money.

A child who is aware of the value of money -- and one who steals more than $100 like she's robbing a bank -- needs therapy to prevent this sort of criminal behavior from continuing throughout her adolescence and teenage years.

Most shoplifting teens started out stealing from their parents' purse or wallet. It is a learned behavior that reaps rewards that children learn to crave.

You can bet Royalty Brown has stolen money from her grandmother's purse before. Each time she goes into her grandmother's purse, she steals even more money. It might be time for Ms. Hawkins to lock up her valuables when Royalty comes over.

    I blame that toxic bird brain that birthed this child. She is using that child as a pawn. I am no fan a Chris Brown but he needs to get full custody because scrambled brains is already making that little girl toxic

  • SweetTEE

    It's either in her blood or she was told to do that. Either way, she knew better at that age.

  • hi-liter

    Her prostitute mother told her to take it.

  • PhillyFacts

    This is learned behavior as I stated in a previous post; children learn what they live/taught/see etc.... She saw her mother stealing before, trust me...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I am not touching this shyt here ... much love to Chris and Royalty (111) .... https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif

  • SpillyNillie

    Are we for real...I took a dollar or two from my moms purse all the time. Mints too. Never have I ever led a life of crime. Hell, her granny just so happened to have hundreds instead of ones. Nothing to see here...

  • Malcom Flex

    You know what? You're RIGHT Sandra. I had two nephews who used to steal from one of their grandmothers purse. 1 of those boys has spent most of his life in and out of jail!! People think it's cute when kids steal from their grandmother but it's a sociopathic signal.

  • Rachel

    I find it hard to believe a 4 year old would be stealing $$$ instead of candy. Money has no value to a child that young but candy does.

  • CopperCutie

    I would give her an old fashioned whooping. She wouldn't do it again.

  • Malcom Flex

    Yeh those old fashioned whooping are straight up child abuse. A smack on the HAND should do not using an electric cord and cursing like a fool.

  • CopperCutie

    Nah, it worked on me. Never said anything about cursing or using an extension cord.

  • Malcom Flex

    If you're black, I gotta say, most of us take it overboard, even the word WHOOPING which is slang for WHIPPING is cruel.

  • Malcom Flex

    She's raised mainly by her trife mama, so...

  • Yardgirl

    THIS!! ^^^ What did she do next, call an Uber and went to the mall and spent it?? FOH Even if the mother told her to take the money and she gave it to the mom, I still am not going to label a FOUR YEAR OLD A THIEF!!

  • PhillyFacts

    My brother was one of these guys he spent 17 yrs in prison; my grandfather kept saying he was stealing from him money, then he stole one of pops cameras, then he stole pops gun. My grand-mom cause he was her favorite (oldest grand) would tell him "Joe you probably misplaced it". Well guess what that gun killed somebody years later and who do you think was caught with it. God truly blessed me, and my younger brother we lived with my grandparents, because my mother was a crook addicted to drugs. My older 2 brothers eventually came to live with us,and brought a whole lot bad habits with them that they learned from her, and her men.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    her mother probably told her to do it who knows. smdh

  • Malcom Flex

    Fist Brown is what happens when fools bareback hoes. He wasn't picky where he put his penis and the kid is the result.

  • Naomi

    I don't feel bad for them at all. Except the kid cuz she has two fools for parents. Guys need to stop rawdogging women they don't know and women need to stop being so quick to have a baby just for some money. Watch who you procreate with!!

  • Malcom Flex

    Our black families have to do better with black boys too much coddling, sorry to hear about your brother, Philly, that's bad. I know this topic is about a mixed girl but. Black boys get away with too much bullsh!t in our families, excuse making. Everybody knows it's true.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Joyce been enabling kids since her precious ass Christopher Maurice. She aint gonna do shit. Next case!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Not a thang!!!!

  • Marlika

    Oh please ? I used to steal from my aunt wallet every time she was knocked out drunk. Never got caught ( ??) Her ass was too drunk to remember how much money she had. ?????

    And I didn’t turn to a life of crime.

  • Malcom Flex

    Keeping it real, my nephew who used to steal from his grandmother's purse got it from his mama who had sticky fingers. Kids do what their parents do.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Ummm... Nicki Minaj is going in on Cardi on her show.

  • Malcom Flex

    You stole from your mother all the time? I feel sorry for your mother

    Oh, I have no F's to give for Fist or his Mexican hoochie baby mama. LOL. But Fist got PLAYED raw dogging the long game for 18 years of monthly checks. She could have terminated but she wanted the money.

  • taurus_32

    I knew she would that’s why I think she started the argument for publicity.

    "Judgements" aka adults having their own free opinions.

  • Malcom Flex

    That child is BLATINO not black. Messican hoochie mama, Black Fist Brown daddy.

  • Renee26

    Lol stealing over $100 = robbing a bank

    Royalty probably thought she was entitled to that money... No counseling needed. Just a swift talking to and maybe a popping of her hands with a ruler for not listening the first time she was caught doing it

  • Malcom Flex

    Yes it's a CRIME to steal and you have POOR MORALS and I wouldn't trust you or anybody who admits what you just did. You've been stealing all your life, inside the family and out.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    I wouldn't have even posted this story smdh

  • Renee26

    Lol I have a theiving azz niece...she not allowed to be in my house unsupervised. Last time we went somewhere together it was her treat and she used a cc that wasn't hers... I told her mama now she like she can't take ME nowhere ?

  • Renee26

    True lol

    She probably comes home from visits with daddy with a little stash and her gold diggin momma takes it outta her purse.

  • Coy little wink

    But she is what 4...what does she need money for? Guess she thinking about her future ?

  • Wreckognize Game

    Supposedly she gave it to mother because her mother told her CB doesn't pay her enough support for Royalty to have her own room in a nicer house.

  • Renee26

    Lol now the baby sleeps on a blow up mattress at the foot of her momma bed?? ?

  • the guest

    I'm in disbelief.

    Does a four year old have a concept of stealing?

    The only thing I can think of is this child has been surrounded by obsession and contention around money since her birth.

    Her father uses money to show off, buy people, and as a weapon to control her mother. I don't care what anyone says, her father pays an inadequate amount of child support and he manipulated it because at the time he was angry at the child's mother. He spends more on weed and partying than on the mother of his child and that must be a source of pain. He knew darn well he was sleeping unprotected with a woman who is not independent and self sufficient.

    If this child is witnessing her mother personally struggle and her dad and grandmother living lavishly, then the child might be developing a rescue and robinhood complex to help her mother. Chris' spite inadvertently placed his child in that position.

    This is why couples need to find peace around money. If men don't want to take care of women, they shouldn't date, sleep with, impregnate, nor marry dependent women. Point. Blank. Period.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I read it in a people story or something. Her mother admitted in court that she bad mouthed CB to the daughter so she will know the truth. Also said CB keeps expensive clothes at his house

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I happened to be off work one day when a UPS delivery came to my house, I told him he had the wrong Apt because I didn't order anything but it was my address on the box, Open it up and it was a fresh pair of Jordan's, my son said it was sent to our house for his friend, of course I questioned why would they do that and his answers didn't satisfy me, So it was a name on the box that resembles the name that always pops up on my phone, a friend of his, so I called her and ask to speak to her mom, she ducked me for days saying she wasn't home, so I called one day she was in school and sure nuff moms answered the phone, so I explained to her that I believe her daughter may ordered some shoes, so I bought them over to her and the girl kept saying it wasn't hers, and so was her mom saying my daughter doesn't have money she couldn't have possibly ordered these shoes, then the girl tries to throw my son SUPPOSESNLY HIS FRIEND under the bus and said the shoes was his. I checked the size it was a 7 my son wears a size 10 1/2 men's can you guess what size shoe she wears? Mommy went and got a shoe out of her room, she finally confesses she stole her grandmother credit card and bought the shoes and had it delivered to my house when they THOUGHT I was going to be at work. It was never revealed if my son knew of all the foolery that was taking place or not but I let his ass have it anyway. smdh

  • the guest

    I never until this day a grown woman married 13 and half years with two kids have ever even touched my mother's purse or entered her bedroom without permission. I grew up very old school, you don't ever touch your mother's purse.

    I'm not judging and it never occurred to me until I noticed friends' growing up and friends's as an adult their mothers' will ask them to get something from their purse.

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    Her momma probably influenced her to take it.

  • Bashi22

    Why do they have to expose these court document about this child. That all for today I will not bash that baby at all. I know her mother gives some good nasty sex that why Chris Brown pop inside lol

  • Coy little wink

    That's sad

  • Coy little wink

    If so that is sad...

  • iWasteTime

    Now you know her momma told her to get any and all cash she sees

  • WhooCares

    Yea Mommy's purse was a no no unless she asked you to take something out of it for her. I've never!

  • KLove

    I was once a thieving ass little child...i started by stealing some quarters from my aunt..i dont think i was able to get in my moms purse, or get to my grandparents money, as i was never unsupervised around their stuff long enough to get to it.....then once my stepdad had a stroke i started figuring out how to hit the ATM with his card, and it was on and poppin then....when they noticed money coming up missing out of his account...naturally the bank investigated....and i swore up and down to my mom that it wasnt me.....the bank sent the camera footage, and lo and behold...ya boy face bright as day on the damn photos....and i still denied it....and my mom tried to save face and say it wasnt me...but she HAD to know it was me and she just couldnt believe her little angel was capable of theft of that magnitude

  • supastar

    OMG smh

  • Meme

    Yes exactly this is strange

  • RespectSelf

    I'm lost!!! why is this even in court documents. For what? lol why do I now know about this. Something doesn't seem right... and she's 4. lol She doesn't have any real idea of how much she took and what she can do with it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Why is this even in the courts? At four she doesn't even know the value of money.

  • Quitedeliteful

    ! You're lucky. My parents would have skinned me alive...

    Did the mother tell this story to the court while she was trying to get an increase in child support?

  • Jussjess25

    Yes she does which is the reason why she stole it. You think royalty dont know that she be dripped im the latest? You think she dont understand that her dad is someone “important” royalty like the camera and expensive clothes.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Sounds like she’s taking after her mother....

  • Ni Ni

    Lol. I used to dig in my mom's pocket for loose change for candy. I was too scared to steal the bills. I did tell her about when i got grown. We had a good laugh about it.

  • Jussjess25

    Its in the courst because their trying to show that cb is neglectful. And doesnt watch her properly ?

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

  • Dun Dilly

    Wow, I don't know how to respond: The theft by a child or the fact that said theft is in the court document. Both issues say a lot!

  • Marlika

    I was 6 and back then $1 could get you a lot from the store. Shoot a few times I was able to clip a $5 from her.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It starts off with stealing change and quickly escalates to stealing hundreds of dollars. It might be too late for Royalty to turn her life around.

  • Ni Ni

    I just can't believe she stole three whole hundred dollars. Maybe it was the nanny. I know kids steal but thats a large amount. Where did she stash it.

  • Jussjess25

    You was bout the be a clepto manic. ?. I would have been way to embrassed to steal that much abd that magnitude from family

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don't think so... I can't imagine a 4 year old saying Ima steal from my grandma but I'm only gonna take $300.00. What is she going to do with it. It's not like she can go buy herself a new bike or something. I can see if she's being coached by someone who's teaching her to steal...

  • Malai

    Why did I find this so funny lmao

  • Yui

    Hmmm...a dangerous friend to have.

  • Quitedeliteful

    That's what this sounds like...

  • Jussjess25

    She doesnt have to capacity to lnow how much it is. But she knows money has value and it can “buy stuff” you sont know that at four your seriously behind the curve. And shes a relatively “rich” child im sure she sees valuables all the time.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    A childhood friend of mines was a thief. I thought it was funny when she would steal those doorknocker earrings out the store but I knew she was doing it because her momma was strung out...when we got to be teens it got to the point where no one would let her in their house except for my family on the block because she was a thief...needless to say she stole some gold rings my mom gave me...I didn't even notice it until a week later when some boys came by and one complimented her rings...i snatched them off her hand and told her to get the "f&ck off my porch"...now that was 20 years ago....she now has twins daughters who look just like her and I dont trust them either.... When she visits they stay right in the living room and only can get up to get a glass of water...them and they Momma....

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm just stumped. Somebody has to be teaching her to steal and be slick...

  • KLove

    I think i was stealing more out of a sense of entitlement

    I grew up my mom's only child, and was probably from one of the more well to do families on the block (no welfare/food stamps/section 8, moms had a good salary, etc).

    I had a hard time understanding how the poor kids down the block (moms had like 10 kids, every govt subsidy you can think of, etc), were ALWAYS at the ice cream truck everyday, and ALWAYS had the latest clothes, sneakers, toys etc...but yet they was poor AF.....and here I am...go to private school, moms make good money, and she wouldnt indulge me with J's and karl kani and stuff like that, even though i knew she could afford it with no issue... I wanted IN dammit!!

    It wasnt until i was older that i realized they were able to have all of those things, because their mom didnt work, and the govt was providing all of their money. My mom always said its super easy to spend other folks' money, but when you EARN your money..you are less apt to blow it on BS

  • Ni Ni

    And she didn't wear your lil narrow behind out when you got home??? That deserves the extension cord?. Man laying up having a stroke and you got $$$ in your eyes, smh.

  • leapyearpisces

    This is being blown out of proportion. Believe it not, small children don't know its stealing until they are TAUGHT its stealing. You have to TEACH them...I was 3 when I was in the grocery store and I took some Hubba Bubba gum and when we got in the car, my mom asked me where I got that and I said from the store. I remember thinking and looking with my 3 year old eyes , I didn't understand or see that there was MONEY being exchange for the things my mom and everyone else were just "picking up". I just saw her and everybody else just PICKING UP stuff...so I decided hell, I FELT like "picking me up" some scrawberry Hubba-Bubba, so that is what I did. I didn't know I was doing anything wrong, I didn't even try to hide the fact I had it....I thought that's how EVERYONE was rolling...now she explained to me that what I did was indeed steal, we went back into the store, she had me tell the manager what I did, and those are what you called "teachable moments", and I didn't do it anymore.
    Same thing with my son a few years when he was like 4 or 5 in Walmart, he took something. I made him take it back to the manager and apologize. He doesn't steal, and most people don't. I think it's pretty normal for little kids to do that - to "steal". Now once you teach them that it is wrong and they persist, that's another issue. It's all about teaching little children boundaries. Children don't teach themselves right from wrong.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Somebody has to be coaching her to go into the grandmother's purse. I don't believe at four this girl has the capacity to steal. Maybe her mother practiced with her by showing her how to go into the purse and take the money. At four she didn't just up and say Ima take my grandma's money. It's not like she can go buy a pretty dress and a bicycle for herself...

    I could understand stealing from big chain stores but not from people, especially your friends. Someone I thought was my friend (who happened to be pregnant) in high school stole a beautiful necklace/bracelet set my boyfriend bought me. I was so disgusted with her. I was enraged and wanted to do bodily harm to her.

  • WhoKnew

    Supposedly the baby mama is trying to take Chris back to court for more child support. First, these insta-hos need to know that child support is not a job. In other words go get a job and stop spending the child support on yourself. Secondly, I don't think the baby mama is putting her 4 y/o up to stealing out of grandma's purse. If this story is true it sounds like it might be the liaison who drops the baby off and picks her up because apparently no one is on civil terms so I've heard a liaison drops her off at Chris' house or his mother's house. That is more likely the culprit or the nanny.

    My granddaughter turned 5 y/o today and she's pretty smart but unless someone encourages her to go into my purse, she is not going to do it. Now, on 3 occasions, I have taken her to 7-11 for a slurpee and she lifted some toys and hid them. I would find them, reprimand her and call her parents and let them know. Then I would drive back to the 7-11 and explain that she took that toy, make her apologize and put it back. This kid could probably fill 5 toys chest she has so many toys so it's no reason for it.

    On a side note, my granddaughter had her birthday party this past Saturday. We filled up 2 big boxes once everything was unwrapped. But what I noticed was the envy of the other children who wanted her gifts. I got her a couple of DVDs her mom had suggested and there was even an adult who said, I'm going to have to figure out how to get those DVDs away from her for my kids. Then there was a girl maybe about 11 y/o drooling over the gifts saying she was jealous of all the gifts and wished she could have some of them (she was there with her parents and younger siblings). So, stealing for a child could sometimes mean that they are stealing things they don't have but want. Or stealing to get more.

  • WhoKnew

    Chris supposedly keeps a monkey as a pet.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL! The nanny probably says they aren't paying her enough. LOL!!!!!!!!!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiile some 3yrs olds are very smart. They know money buys things. In Royalty case,she probably see money exchanges for goods all the time. Iono think she knows 300 dollas from 10 dollas. But that's besides the point. How often does she steal? First she starts stealing,then she commence to lying. to rectify alla dat. Screw DCF,Screw the professionals. Go outside,pull a small switch offa a tree,remove the leaves,show her them 300 dollas and start working on them legs. The sting alone will get her attention.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I agree. At four??? Let it be a teachable moment and move on. If they mother is coaching her to steal then I can understand it being in court...

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    She's 4 years old. She can't hop into an Uber and go on a shopping spree at the mall. She's either doing it for attention or someone with a drug habit is instructing her to steal from her grandmother. I know drug addicts who taught their children to steal at a very young age.

  • Tlowe89

    I stole from my mother when I was under the age of 10, but it was because she was a drug addict and I was hungry. She always had a max of a dollar of change. I did however turn out just fine. I’m not a felon, a serial thief, or a thief period, or any type of criminal. I work a simple job in Corp America. I did what I did for survival purposes

  • GrapeCrush

  • Miss Thang

    exactly. agree 100%

  • Miss Thang

    I honestly feel like this may be a rite of passage, although 4 is very young to do something like that. I stole money sporadically from out of my mom's purse between ages 11 and 15. She may or may not have known. But, she knows I didn't mean it maliciously. I just stole to buy chocolates and cookies xD

  • Miss Thang

    lmao!! I completely forgot about that monkey!! You so damn silly! lol

  • Miss Thang

    yea, but at that age you would try to hide it from your mom because you know you're not supposed to have it, not because you stole it.

    This is subjective. Always, I believe certain behaviors are innate characteristics of the individual. It doesn't matter if he/she is the only child or not, if it's apart of their character then it's who they are. I am the oldest of five children. My middle sister had and knew boundaries, apparently, YET she lied and stole horribly since toddler-age. She is now 32 and still exhibit negative behaviors she had done since grade school age. Oh yeah, we had strict parents.

  • DeJeri

    My great aunt from Kentucky whipped me like that once. Made me go pick the switch and then she peeled off the bark. I don't even remember what I did but I NEVER did it again.

  • DeJeri

    Does anybody really believe that??? The things people do to avoid getting a job.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Chiiiile we all got the switch. when I got older, my moms made me go get my own switch off the tree. I cried the entire time, cuz I knew what was coming.

  • Rahab

    I took change from my Dad's pockets daily. Had no idea I wasn't the only one. Mom got lunch money too! ? But seriously, what is her mother teaching her.

  • Rahab

    ? We all had that one good ass whooping where we learned not to do that again.

  • ValArie Broadway

    LMAO!!!!?????? Right! Her little self would get a spanking at the least. I don’t care how old she is or how minor the action is to her, you gone LEARN.

  • SMDH x2

    Maybe she was in grandma's purse looking for candy or gum and saw the money, and pulled it out. Who is saying she stole though?

  • Mirella

    Oh wow! My 4 years-old has no concept of money at all. That's crazy. And the grand mother went to court for that? Why doesn't she ask Brown to give her money back?

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaooo.. you got dat right! Yew gon learn tidday. Lil rogue

  • the chosen one

    No, a child doesn't. Need therapy when caught stealing. All they need is a good old belt on that azz

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I swear I was thinking the same thing.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    FOR REAL!!!

    I've NEVER had the urge to steal out of someone house or even from people I knew. I stole out of a grocery store before, when I was a young teen but never from friends and family. I got caught because I'm not a good thief nor liar (Thank God). Lol! Never did it again.

    Her friend sounds like a kleptomaniac.

    And God knows that I know how it feels for a family member you thought you could trust, to come into your house and steal and then you don't notice it, until you go to use your item and it's gone. Smh. Those the type that lie to people and act like it's you who did something to them, to cover up the fact that they stole out of your house.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Her mama probably told her to do it..

    An as s whooping cures Autism too, right? C'mon, now. Treatment IS needed for certain ppl. No amount of as s whoopings are gonna change their ways.

  • Allihave2say

    As a child I stole something I really wanted. I lied to my grandmother when she asked how I got, I said my dad bought so she knew it was a lie. She took me back to the store, made me confess, return it, work there sweeping for a weekend to pay if off, I still didn't get to keep it and she still gave me a whooping with a switch. My criminal career came and went fast.

  • Allihave2say

    Her mother has been stealing money from Chris for the past 3 years. That's not his daughter. I don't know who they paid at the DNA lab but that little girl belongs to the original claiming crook who is now in jail for forgery.

  • Allihave2say

    Autism is genetic. Stealing is behavioral. Ass whooping have a way...

  • Allihave2say

    She gave the money to her mother. She understood what it was and what she was doing. She's being coached to crook like her mama and the crook in prison.

  • Nathan Hastings

    She got it from her mama...

  • justlooking

    What does a child that young, know about the value of a $1.00 vs 100.00

    This story sounds ridiculous.

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    Ooooo you spearmint swiper..tsk tsk tsk

  • 11pink123

    I was so confused I’m glad you said that because I could not put my thought into words of how stupid this was. My little cousins stole my whole car when they was in middle school. When I woke up, they was gone, I was too tired to even go look to see where they went. I heard the car pull up, they came in with McDonalds. I asked them how they got there, they lied. I went back to sleep and forgot the shyt.

  • yea,and

    lol..someone supporting actions against this country passing judgement against a 4yr old, talking about a life of crime? I see yall let fashion and gossip between the lies put your minds to sleep big time. When people bs, they give you a lot of information that's really not needed. I see a lot of these sites and comment sections 'sticking to their script' no matter what.

  • 11pink123

    And I used to steal from my mama all the time. And I’m pretty sure she knew but ain’t care enough to say nothing. I did not really think of it as stealing cause I knew she did not care. Though. But technically it’s stealing if you don’t ask I guess. But I took plenty of money out my mama purse, stole her car plenty of times and all. And til this day I ain’t never stole out of a store or from anyone else.

  • 11pink123

    Okay I got the rest of the story. It make sense now. Royolaty questions why her mama House ain’t like her daddy, Nia said daddy don’t pay enough child support so royalty jacked the grandma.????? thought she was buying her mom a house..., ????That’s a G... don’t come between the Love a kid has for they mother... Chris brown only pay her 2500 a month. Lol poor royalty

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I had friend who used to steal from his step dad with no regard he eventually end up killing a guy trying to rob him and doing life in prison he have about 6 kids and I see two of his sons are headed down the same path

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She prolly see her mom stealing whoring and all kinds of stuff

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    It was never revealed if my son knew of all the foolery that was taking place or not but I let his ass have it anyway.....

    That part right there!!! Good mommy! Good job!!!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    This is all coming out because Nia is asking for an increase in child support, so I read elsewhere. Nia is saying Royalty steals the money so her mother can afford an extra bedroom because her and Royalty share a bedroom together in her 2 bedroom apartment, and Royalty wants her own room like she has over Chris's house. I assume the grandmother aka nanny making $4,000 a month has the other room. I wonder if Nia is making this up, or she is telling the child to do it. And before you start with the whole, 'don't jump to conclusions' theory, I remember Nia being in on a credit card scam about 2 or 3 years ago. I think her boyfriend at the time took the charge. Anyway, Between her 2500 per month, and granny's 4000 dollars per month, why can't they just get a three bedroom apartment? Like really. Plus if she was really concerned about Royalty, she would have dealt with it in private. Why put this in court documents? Why does Chris need to pay extra if they split the child 50 percent of the time? Why can't she get a job or a better one? I don't agree with what Ludacris and Dwade and other men have done by snatching the child, but I think they just find it easier to let the child stay with them then to keep paying hand over fist, and going back and forth to court. Once the court make their decision to give the kids to the father's you don't hear anything else from Luda, Dwade, Chris Bosh, etc. baby mamas. Chris has the child the first 12 days of the month, then she has the child the next 12 days. Why does she need more money when she only has the child 2 weeks out of the month like Chris. Okay, I'm done. Gone off to read comments.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Yes she did according to another website.

  • Mr. Poopybutthole

    Yep yep yep....

  • TransMichelle

    I bet some people on here think what this child did is cute or try to justify it. You can bet that Brown and his baby mama throw money around this child and make it seem like money is everything. That money is easy to come by. These underdeveloped people are raising this child for a life of stupidity and laziness.

  • TransMichelle

    I always thought that this child is not Chris Brown's child. Who knows Brown didn't even take a DNA test.

  • the guest

    The United States of America, in particular the "African American community" in America has the least respect, regard, reverence for motherhood and mothers. Only in a America is motherhood regarded with disdain. There is such a vile disconnect with the critical importance of motherhood.

    This anti-mother mentality of African Americans is yet another generational mental conditioning born of slavery. Only African American women have been conditioned to believe that 1) single motherhood is a norm and standard and 2) that mothers deserve to struggle and suffer.

    Child support is not a job, MOTHERHOOD is a job, a full time job, the most important job, the first, foremost and above all else job. Married mothers, and out of wedlock mothers whose children's paternity is acknowledged, should be fully supported in full time motherhood for it is in the best interest of children.

    This is why women should never marry nor procreate with irresponsible or incompetent men who are unable to afford to care for a mother and child. It is reprehensible for a man of means to not want to care the mother and child.

    Black women need to know what most women in all other races are raised to know, that they and their children are worthy of being taken care of. Chris Brown should pay the mother of his child support at the very least $100,000 per year. He will be blessed for righteous prioritizing.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Now why would somebody put this out there? SHAME ON YOU!!!!! That's why folks be hiding their kids from the spotlight. Anything to make a child look bad in the public opinions eyes.........tsk tsk tsk

  • TMW

    That’s what I thought. And I don’t like what Ludicris or D Wade did either, but what I don’t like even more is when women use the child support they are receiving to live off. The child support is for the child.

  • Lady_Elle

    Too funny! I forgot about the monkey!
    Thanks for the laugh!!! rofl

  • TMW

    Right, so she thought the story of the child stealing would play sympathetically to the court, so she told it. Which goes to show, that some women will sell their own children down the river for a dollar. She thought painting her child as a 4 year old thief would be ok???

  • Trace da Ace

    damn....that was a mighty long write up Sandy....bottom line is if you catch your child stealing....beat that ass and keep it pushing.....

  • sunni_daze

    And that's the bottom line.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

  • tintin

    seriously, how did the blogs find out about this?

  • Trace da Ace

    exactly!!! One of my friends now...her 5 year old son got sticky fingers....and she does not discipline him...I told her she needs to nip that shit in the bud...because it will only get worse...if I ever catch my kids stealing...lights out!! lol...but for real!! That shit is a reflection of the parents.....jus saying...

  • Shawty

    I know stealing is wrong but it all depends on the level of thievery. My daughter use to steal snacks...lol. She use to give them to the kids that didn't have them at snack time. Didn't notice until they were very low and I had just purchased them. She got a stern talking to but how do you get serious when all she wanted to do was share with the less fortunate?

  • sunni_daze

    Everything a child does is a refelection of the parent. Shiit she might steal too, watch your purse around her. Kids do as they see

  • ShWa

    Yes beat that azz!

  • Trace da Ace

    but what your daughter was doing was a good thing. She was providing for the children that did not have anything, and that shows that she has a beautiful heart and giving spirit. Your right, can't be mad at that.....for real I appreciate and respect parents like you...teaching their children how to be great human beings. ((hugz))

  • Dowoop

    Lying and stealing from a parent (or grandparent) are usually early indicators that a child is headed for a life of crime.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    All kids lie and/or steal at one point or another. What's important is how you deal with it. A 4 yrs old stealing and outright admitting it doesn't mean they heading for a life of crime.

  • Trace da Ace

    oh honey...I know she does....and its a damn shame....I have actually had to distant myself from her these last few years. I don't steal, and do not like to be around folks with that m.o. I know that is where he gets it from....and its a damn shame because it is only going to get worse....and it breaks my heart because he is my god son and I dont want him to go down that road.....he is only 5...smdh

  • Dowoop

    I agree...set the time for consequences the first time it happens.

  • Dowoop

    You explain to her that she can just ask you because stealing is wrong period. You have a sweet child.

  • Dowoop

    Her mama's response should have been "because I don't want to work"

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I understood where she came from and she had to survive...a victim of abuse with the abuser living in the household...always being made fun of because she wasn't the cleanest...my momma took her in because she "had a feeling" about the man that was living there that turned out to be right...now as an adult I still dont trust her or her kids but back then she was a good friend with an unfortunate circumstance...

  • Dowoop

    So you have never in your life took something that wasn't yours?

  • Carrington

    This is inappropriate on SO many levels. I just feel like intimating that someone's 4- year old is headed for a life of crime crosses SO many lines. Geesh! Come on, Sandra Mae. A 4 year old doesn't know the fundamental differences between a $100 bill and .75 cents in terms of purchasing power. Not excusing the kid taking it from grandmother, but children have to be TAUGHT that stealing is bad and, typically, parents don't have the opportunity to teach that lesson UNTIL the child takes something. This is a teaching moment. No more. No less.

  • Anika Kelly

    I am going to counter your theory considering the girl gave her mother $300 to buy a new house. yeah

    Nip it in the bud right now!

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    it's in the court records for the new child support case her mother filed

  • EyeEmJai

    First, to answer your question: as a young child, older child or teen: no.

    Second, I believe you missed the point of my comment lol. My comment was in response to the suggested remedy in changing a child's character in lying and stealing. My personal example stated that having or teaching boundaries will not alleviate one from being a thief or lying sometimes. That is subjective.
    Some individuals are like that naturally.

  • MsPam

    According to the streets, the reason why Royalty stole the money is because the baby asked the mother how come they didn’t live in a mansion?! So bm told Royalty that Chris Brown doesn’t give her enough money to buy one. Baby girl took the money and gave it to her mother saying is this enough money to buy one now?! BM wanted $20,000 more in child support. So the bm is sitting there talking to Royalty like she’s a grown woman.

  • Dowoop

    Thanks for elaborating... It was wasn't clear in your original statement.

    My 3 almost 4 year old doesn’t yet have a concept of money and the meaning of it. She was put up to this by someone or she is living in extreme dysfunction. The only thing my daughter steals is all the charms out the lucky charms cereal box.

  • SoChlo

    Sounds like a story her mom made up to squeeze him out of more cash.

  • jayhawkpride

    At 4 years old, why are the courts involved? This should have been handled in-house.

  • Malcom Flex

    Said the low life scum admitting to stealing from a drunk relative and proud of it. Bragging you never got caught stealing from your blood. Pitiful.

  • Malcom Flex

    Royalty is messed up already she needs therapy. Obviously many of your readers are also sociopathic, if they're not confessing to stealing from their own blood they're excuse making for the child.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    Absurd! Had to get myself together for a second. It's remedial to say a 4 year old will be a criminal because she stole money off of the guise that her mother put in her head. Yes, the pappy should have chosen better but considering all things and the child is here and aging into full understanding, this can be nipped in the bud by adults. If not by the pappy, grandma can do it. Clearly Royalty's mother is juvenile and won't admit to herself that f'*king and lending out her uterus for checks isn't going too well. A Good parent or those of the village raising her are to train up the child the way she is to go.
    There are too many hands in village for this child to not be taught right from wrong and show her examples of why.
    She will not be a criminal, she will however be skeptical of what to believe.

    This is a molding time for Royalty, wrong influences or words or lack of explanation for certain actions or behaviors can confuse her.

    I lived this with my very own niece, I have seen it first hand.

    She is 4, fgs. You talk to kids.

  • Allihave2say

    I believe the man who claimed her after birth is her real father. DNA tests can be bought. I believe they cooked this scheme up to get money from CB because he was too high to remember all the details of the whens and who's. He may not want to turn back by taking a DNA test but I really think he needs to call Maury P. That's not his daughter.
