Los Angeles: Singer Chris Brown has secretly fathered a baby girl with a former model named Nia, it has been claimed.
The 25-year-old 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker, who has an on/off relationship with model Karrueche Tran, is the proud father of a nine-month-old baby girl, and though he is on good terms with the youngster's mother, a 31-year-old model, they are not together, reported TMZ.
Sources say that Brown, is happy about being a father and has known Nia for several years. It does not appear there is an official child support order in place between the pair.
A representative for the 'Loyal' hitmaker hasn't commented on the claims. It was recently claimed Karrueche is ready to marry Brown, even if he is sent back to jail later this month after his probation was revoked in January.
The singer reportedly broke the terms of his probation - which was set when he was convicted of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - by not finishing his community service and leaving town without permission.
