Chris Brown Won’t Be Doing It for the Kids

Chris Brown is up for two honors at this year’s Kids’ Choice Awards, but on the off-off-off chance that he actually wins one, don’t expect him to accept the trophy live.

Brown, who’s been charged with two felonies for allegedly beating his girlfriend Rihanna on February 8, will in all likelihood not be attending the event. A source close to the 19-year-old tells People magazine that Brown never intended to show up for the ceremony, which takes place on March 28, and is busy with other concerns at the moment.

“Chris has been hanging out with Rihanna, working on his music and spending time with and speaking with his mother and pastor,” says the insider.

A rep for Nickelodeon, which will be airing the ceremony, confirms that Brown is not scheduled to appear at the show.

Brown is nominated for Favorite Male Singer and Favorite Song for his ditty “Kiss Kiss.” Though a group called Twittermoms is petitioning Nickelodeon to remove Brown from the ceremony in any capacity, the station is holding firm on keeping Brown on the ballot.

“Like all our KCA nominees Chris Brown was nominated by kids several months ago based on his body of work as a performer, and the kids who vote will ultimately decide who wins in the category,” a Nickelodeon spokesperson notes.
