In a nice change of pace, here's some Chris Brown news that isn't related to him breaking the law: The singer is reportedly a father.

According to TMZ, Brown, 25, has a 9-month-old daughter with Nia, a 31-year-old former model who has known Brown for years.

Though Brown and Nia are on good terms, the pair is not together romantically and there is no formal child support agreement in place. Neither Brown nor his girlfriend of four years, Karrueche Tran, have publically commented on the child.

The news comes days after Brown was refused entry into Canada due to "immigration issues" and two weeks before he is due back in court for a hearing regarding the fact that his probation, stemming from his assault on Rihanna, was revoked (again).
