Chris Brown Withdraws From Kids' Choice Awards

3/11/2009 2:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownChris Brown is officially letting Nickelodeon off the hook, and taking himself off the list of nominees at the upcoming Kids' Choice Awards.

In a statement, his rep says:

"Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honor they have paid him in the way of nominations for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song.

Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated.

While Chris would like to speak to his fans directly about this and other issues, pending legal proceedings preclude his doing so at this time. Once the matter before him has been resolved, he intends to do so."


A rep for Nickelodeon tells us: "We are confirming that Chris Brown has decided to withdraw his nominations from the Kids' Choice Awards. We agree with and respect his decision, and are looking forward to presenting a great event for our audience."

I'm sure it was a joint decision between Breezy's camp and Nick to have him withdraw. He would have won the male singer category cause there is no one else worthy of an award for their music and I'm sure they all know that. Whoever wins better know its by default.

I'm pretty sure Rihanna does NOT appreciate the faux support that people are giving her on these sites and she knows they dont give a damn about her.

The reports say that she was the physically aggressive one in the past and also was the aggressor on that night and for her to strike him first and sit on the car keys rather than run away shows that she was not scard at all. He's not the only one to blame here which is why she is doing her best to accept responsibility and not go hard against him in court. I'm sure her lawyer and gerigos are both working together to make the deal with the DA. Despite that, he needs to try harder to let it go in the future because he knows now that the public and the law will go after him, even if she hits him 100 times and leaves scratches and besides, physical violence is wrong on all levels.

i think its ridiculous. he is very talented when it comes to music. dont care what he does outside of that and you shouldn't either. thats unless you are allowing your nickelodeon watching children to surf the garbage of tmz and perezhilton.

Simply the best news. He did the right thing by withdrawing his name from the awards show. Chris is a loser for beating Rihanna and kids should not honor a loser period. Now even though I'm not a kid, I did vote for Rihanna for support, and...I also voted for Michael Phelps (Don't hate on me).

@63 He may be a woman beater but he is not ugly at alll. He still is young wiht very good looks. Plus i probaly figured out why Rihanna is back with him. It may have to do with it being 9 inches and above. lol

Please! It is so obvious that you are a troll for the Chris Brown camp on damage control duty. Don't speak for Rihanna. Any support she can get right now is going to help her. She is under tremendous pressure to continue with this "fake reconcilliation". She's isolated from her family. All in an effort the $ave the $orry career of a cheater and a beater!

I dont think Chris should of backed out. By doing so he is kind of giving up. The kids adore his music and they should continue to enjoy him and his art. There are plenty of people out there doing worse in front on their kids and i can bet they still have their kids with them. Chris is only human. Can anyone name anyone who has never made a mistake?

LOL- (not sure if anyone else caught what the pr was trying to do but I sure did!) What a PR. I would DEF. FIRE HIM (or HER) I was actaully thinking to myself, "Wow It's about time he took some responsibility for what happens to women beaters, then I read where his pr is saying " Unfortunately, the controversy surrounding the incident last month has shifted the focus from the music to whether he should be allowed to be among those nominated. " and I just think to myself, WTF. I mean yeah to be nominated for an award you have to have some kind of "good" character about you espically when your dealing with kids. These people just don't have an ounce of couth in them! ACT LIKE YOUR MOMMA GAVE YOU SOME POSITIVE HOME TRAINING PEOPLE.

Rihanna has been victimed on so many level. Has she been used from day one? Is it possible that they were pushed together by the people who have invested in Chris Brown Inc. to distract Chris from the unhealthy relationship that he was having with the 40 year old? She continue to get used in an effort to $alvage the $inking $hip.
