In the film, Chris reveals he was planning to propose to RiRi in 2009, explaining how he fell hard for the Grammy winner and was even the first one to say “I love you.” But before he could get down on one knee, the 28-year-old was charged with felony assault following an incident involving the brunette beauty after the Grammys that year.

While the couple has been broken up for nearly a decade now, the premiere gave Chris a chance to spend time with the main woman in his life: daughter Royalty. On Tuesday, June 6, the three-year-old accompanied her dad on the red carpet, looking like a princess in a puffy white dress with her hair pulled into a high bun. But the outfit wasn’t complete without a pair of pink sparkle shoes.
The doc promises a behind-the-scenes look at the controversial singer’s professional and personal lives, including more interviews about his scandalous past relationships.
One thing we definitely can expect: plenty of proud dad talk from Chris! “She is my life. She’s a part of my life in all aspects,” he gushed about his daughter on the red carpet. “I thought music was at first but she’s number one, and then the music. Bringing her here, I wanted to show her that daddy is cool, I guess.”
Chris shares joint custody of Royalty with her mother, Nia Guzman. He previously said of fatherhood, “So I have a co-parenting job that’s pretty amazing but, you know, learning how to be a dad, especially learning how to take care of somebody else, you know, I barely know how to brush my teeth in the morning!”
He continued, “It’s actually great. It’s very humbling. You know, it’s very calming. I think I was a lot, rambunctious, very hyper as a kid, but now, seeing that 10 times over, my daughter’s kinda like mellowing me out.”
When asked what the best part is, the “Forever” hitmaker said the “little things,” adding, “Bedtime is crazy for me because I always was like … trying to avoid bedtime when I was a kid, like, ‘No, Mom, just 15 more minutes, please!’ So I’ll keep like the kids’ channel on and turn it all the way low and turn all the lights out, and you know, I’ll lay in the bed with her and like rub her back until she actually falls asleep.”
