After feeling the heat from Kids’ Choice Awards viewers and sponsors, the Nickelodeon network has disinvited the troubled singer — and sent out an urgent memo asking staff to wipe Brown’s name off the website completely.
This action comes after it was revealed that Brown and his 40-year-old manager, Tina Davis, were setting up a booty call just before he beat his girlfriend Rihanna to a pulp in his Lambo the night before the Grammy Awards.
Chris Brown’s camp is now claiming he never had plans to attend the show anyway, but we know that’s a lie.
His camp also denies that Brown posted a blog on his Myspace asking for votes for favorite male singer award and favorite song for “Kiss Kiss.”
According to People magazine, a petition was posted online asking Nickelodeon to drop his name from the list of nominees.
After fielding numerous requests for a response to the viewer backlash, the network stood firmly behind Brown and deferred to the little innocent children who voted for him instead.
“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 shameless Nickelodeon rep said last week.
A spokesman for Nickelodeon now confirms that Brown is not scheduled to attend. It’s more likely that Nickelodeon asked Brown not to attend.
It’s one thing to slap your girlfriend around, but pedophilia is something the network apparently can’t make excuses for.
According to GIANT magazine, Davis moved Brown into her home and seduced Brown with fresh kicks and gear at the tender age of 13:
She moved him in with her in New Jersey and got him a deal with Jive Records, now home to R&B’s ruling class: R. Kelly, Justin Timberlake, T-Pain, Joe and Huey.
“Me and T.J. used to stay at Tina’s house all the time. We thought she was super rich!” Brown says. “She lived in a regular neighborhood, and we was from the ghetto. We was wearing a whole bunch of dirty clothes. She would buy us fresh things every week, new sneakers.” LINK
