FACTS ABOUT CHRIS BROWN'S MOM
Hawkins's most famous title is mother to the talented Chris Brown, but she is also an industrious woman with an impressive business mind. While most parents may try to live off their children's successes, Hawkins has ventured into business.
She poured her energy into fashion, selling, and designing cute outfits for women of all ages. Chris's entrepreneurial parent runs a clothing boutique known as Rose Marrón.
There is an Instagram account dedicated to the business. On the store's page, customers view the various available designs and are notified when it's time for sales.
Rose Marrón is not the only thing Hawkins is passionate about. She is arguably her son's number 1 fan.
The singer is a constant feature on his mom's personal Instagram account. She is always promoting his latest releases, whether they are songs or merchandise, and celebrating him.
She is also an internet sensation. The "Loyal" crooner's cheerleader has about 400,000 followers and over 6,000 posts, constantly creating engaging posts for her fans.
JOYCE'S PERSONAL LIFE
Many years before becoming known as the mother to the superstar, Joyce was married to Clinton Brown, a prison officer. The duo share two kids, including Chris, their youngest.
However, their marriage ended when the artist was only six years old. Hawkins remained focused on her duties as a mother and has not been publicly linked to another man.
Both parents remained constant figures in their children's lives after the separation. Clinton maintained his bond with his son.
Despite fortune and fame, Chris's dad is still an integral part of his life, and the patriarch never gets tired of sharing advice when needed.
More than once, Clinton has shared his thoughts about the pop star's choices. There was a time when Chris frequented courthouses and was accused of physically abusing his former girlfriend, Rihanna.
While many people criticized him, his parents were supportive by attending the court appointments with the singer.
In 2013, Clinton confirmed that he was not on his son's payroll and shared his take on the artist's volatile relationship with the "Love The Way You Lie" songstress. He said:
"I personally really didn't want him and Rihanna back together. You have to have a balance in a relationship."
The prison officer compared the former lovers' temperaments, explaining that they were too similar to establish a successful relationship.
HOW MANY CHILDREN DOES JOYCE HAVE?
Hawkin's only marriage was to Clinton, and she had all her kids with him. Her firstborn child is a daughter named Lytrell Bundy Brown, aka Tootie. Her second child and only son is Chris.
Lytrell keeps a low profile, and it is not known whether she has a family. But her brother is a doting dad to three kids, which makes their mother a grandmother.
Although the "Look At Me Now" star has never been married, he shares his kids with three different women. The first time he became a father was on May 27, 2014, when his then-lover, Nia Guzman, gave birth to their daughter, Royalty. Hawkins's first grandchild is the singer's doppelgänger in looks, energy, and talents.

Thankfully, Royalty is surrounded by a loving family, including parents who co-parent amicably and a grandmother that loves her. In 2019, Chris's model beau, Ammika Harris, became a mother to his only son, Aeko. Although mother and son live in Europe, the superstar makes an effort to see his child often.
Hawkin's third grandchild is Lovely, born to her son and Diamond Brown. In April, the singer confirmed that she is his child after months of speculation from fans.
The 57-year-old grandmother spends time with her grandkids as much as possible and shares sweet posts about them on her Instagram page.
JOYCE'S APPARENT CHANGES THROUGH THE YEARS
In 2020, Chris's mom surprised her followers when she posted photos of herself. The 57-year-old looked younger in her pictures. After comparing her previous photos, many wondered if she had gone under the knife or if it was thanks to phone filters.
The swirling rumors did not deter Hawkins from sharing more pictures of herself. Hawkins has yet to address the gossip and continues sharing her youthful-looking images. As she approaches 60, the singer's mom appears content with living her best life.
