Chris Brown No-Show for Court ... Still Scores Win Over Baby Mama

Baby Mama Drama
Chris Brown scored an early victory in his custody war with Nia Guzman that could end up saving him hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Chris was M.I.A. from the courthouse in Houston, but during the hearing the judge shot down Guzman's motion to move the case to California. Although Guzman now lives in Cali ... the judge pointed out she was living in the Houston area when the case was filed.
Brown's attorney opposed the motion to move -- most likely because California courts tend to award more money in child support cases than Texas. Remember, Chris is currently paying Nia $2,500 per month, but she wants to bump that to $15k.
The hearing's still going on -- the judge still has to hash out a custody arrangement, and rule on the gag order Chris wants to stop Nia from bad mouthing him.
Strange that Chris no-showed ... since he was already in Texas. He performed Thursday night in Dallas.Tmz
