Brown Withdraws Himself As Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Nominee

Shamed R&B singer CHRIS BROWN has withdrawn his name from the upcoming Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards as a result of the "controversy" surrounding his recent fight with girlfriend RIHANNA.
The Kiss Kiss star is facing two felony charges relating to an altercation with Rihanna after a Grammys party last month (08Feb09).
Brown's career has taken a serious hit after it emerged the incident left the Umbrella hitmaker reportedly needing medical treatment for her injuries - and now the 19-year-old has decided to remove his name from contention at the 28 March (09) ceremony.
He was nominated for two awards: Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song for Kiss Kiss - in which he was up against Rihanna's Don't Stop The Music.
But Brown has decided to step back from the prizegiving in a bid to quell the intense interest in his personal troubles - although he promises fans he will soon speak out to give his side of the story.
A statement from his representative says, "Chris very much appreciates the support of his fans and the honour 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."
The move comes just days after bosses at Nickelodeon owners MTV Networks and Viacom International vowed to keep his name in the running - despite being presented with an online petition demanding Brown's removal from the awards show.
The Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards are voted for by the TV channel's young viewers.
