Omarion Bonds with Chris Brown Over Fatherhood, Talks Touring with Kids


Image Courtesy Matthew Welch/Atlantic RecordsOmarion and Chris Brown have a lot more in common than just collaborating and enjoying successful music careers. After becoming  first-time dads recently, Omarion reveals that they’ve bonded while touring together for Brown’s One Hell of a Night outing.

In an interview with Vibe, Omarion has enjoyed having his son Megaa hang out with Brown’s daughter, Royalty.

“It’s funny because he came to the bus the other day with Royalty, and her and Megs were playing around. Our whole conversation was about them,” O recalls. “I mean to have a conversation like that as young fathers is crazy.”

Omarion adds that it’s “super cool” that Brown has “a designated play area” for Royalty and invited his son to come play anytime.

“I can tell that he’s motivated differently these days by being a father now. It’s probably the most selfless thing that can happen to anyone in our position,” Omarion says.  “Growing up in the game, you are taught that you have to make certain harsh decisions and a lot of the time, they are selfish because you want to obtain a certain level [of success]. But when you have a child — well, for me –that all goes away. It’s almost like it ain’t even about you anymore. It’s really about feeding your child.”

The tour will further support Omarion’s upcoming album Reasons, which is due out on October 23.
