Chris Brown has ditched plans to move his daughter to Los Angeles.

The 'Loyal' hitmaker previously expressed a desire to have his daughter Royalty move to the county with her mother Nia Guzman but has since shelved the idea as he reportedly doesn't want to see the 31-year-old model ''on a daily basis''.

A source told ''At one time Chris was really into moving Nia out here so he could be closer to Royalty. Now, that's not his priority.

''He doesn't want to see Nia on a daily basis like that. The only reason he ever wanted to bring her here was so that he could see Royalty as often as possible.''

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old star recently hit back at Nia's mother, as the child support battle between him and his former lover reached boiling point.

In a post on Instagram, he said: '' ''Obviously you aren't looking out for my daughter by putting personal issues up on Instagram. I'm not gonna be disrespectful and rude about this becuz I know and they know I provide and take care of my daughter equally. I work and have a job and so will the mother. I actually stepped up to the plate to be a father and havent complained once. And deep down you known yall on some bs. Not here to bash anyone or be confrontational.

''I filed for joint custody. ''EQUAL'' custody. No kid needs 4k a week. Especially when I have her 2weeks out of the month. So this is the last time im ever saying my peace on the issue. Let the courts handle everything else so we can handle the matter as civil adults. Telling all your business is childish and is not setting a good loving environment for ROYALTY. I have no ill intentions and I love my daughter. #godbless (sic)''
