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 agree with Chris's withdawl. I think Rhianna might do the same. They are both seriously humiliated. It's no time to be accepting awards. Either of them. I used to be a big fan of both, now i'm so disappointed. They let me down. Him for trying to kill Rhianna, and Rihanna for taking him back so easily. And those pictures on the jet-ski! I agree with Usher, show some remorse! And not some statement your publicist wrote. A sincere apology in Chris's own words for doing something so shocking, scary, disturbing, unbelievable and sad.

This is just a PR gesture to get him back in the good graces of the public and to try and resurrect his severely damaged image. I don't think the prosecutors will go for it because of the enormous hatred against women beaters and abusers to allow this case to slide in Brown's favor. As the saying goes, "You do the crime, you do the time."

I laugh, and laugh, and laugh again. SO LONG YOU LITTLE PUNK AZZ SUMBITyH! I signed the petition. My kid watches Nick, and she also has a great report card, and reads 100 books every summer in our Summer Reading Program here in town. She doesn't even know Chris Brown or Rhianna exist, but she WOULD after they appeared on this show. Now she wont' have to watch a potential felon win a freakin' award!!!!!!! Brown deserves no commendation here - it was either his PR people trying to repair his image, or Nick telling him to withdraw. That little snot-nosed punk doesn't even realize he did anything wrong - yet people are defending him. It's OJ all over again. Next time, he'll kill her. If only people hadn't been blinded by OJ's fame and put his aZZ in prison once or twice....maybe, just maybe he would not have beheaded Nicole later on. I'll thank Nickelodeon for this, whether they had anything to do with it or not! Good News! See ya' PUNK!

How is TMZ and the commentators on this site preventing Chris from getting help? The beating occured weeks ago. Why hasn't he sought help by enrolling in rehab or psychological counselling. He's had time to jet ski, play basketball, hang out in Vegas, visit hotel bars in LA but no time to seek help.

This guy does not believe that he has a problems. It's always someone else's fault. "She it him first", "his step-father was violent" "we don't know what happened"... and on and on. Those things might all be true but it does not change the fact that he beat someone he supposedly love to a pulp and left her stranded on the streets. He needs to start accepting some responsibility. That will go a long way towards reducing the criticism.

That little turd needs to go to jail. Period. Blah, blah, blah - he's young...blah, blah, blah! Let him do a little time in the slammer and he'd think twice about smacking somebody around again - for WHATEVER reason! And Rhianna's an idiot. I hope she keeps her dumb a## away from the awards too! She's a moron.

hate her    

I just can't wait until everybody learns the truth. Rihanna is a violent, conniving person who made this mess up because Chris left her sitting in that car. I cannot wait until all of you really see what the real deal is and Chris comes back on top.

This little nose-miner isn't doing this on his own. His manager is probably all over him, or either Nickelodeon finally woke up after so many people complained. I actually think he and his girlfriend belong together. They're both idiots. I'll boycott BOTH of them.

wow... i think it is really sad whats happening to both of them ... for people to say rihanna should withdrawal is just so wrong to me shes been threw so much and now fans are turning there backs on her, i really believe who she chooses to be with is up to her and she should not be punished for it ...as for chris brown hes a great artist/ performer and i dont believe that what he did reflects him as an artist, person yes artist no... i dont think his music should suffer for it ...
