Earlier this week there were petitions floating around on the internet from fans asking bosses at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards to withdraw Chris Brown 's name from both the favorite male singer award and favorite song category.
Nickelodeon ultimately decided to stick by Chris' side releasing a statement saying he was nominated for his professional contributions, and not his personal life.
Earlier today it was reported that Chris had no plans on attending the actual show on March 28th, and now comes word that he's withdrawn his nomination.
A spokesman for Brown said that, given the controversy surrounding his nominations for Kids’ Choice Awards, he is withdrawing his name from consideration.
“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."
Chris was up against Rihanna in the favorite song category, since her song "Please Don’t Stop The Music" is nominated. No word yet if she's going to attend the actual show on March 28, but we'll keep you posted!
