People.com: Could Chris Brown win a Kids' Choice Award on March 28?
That remains a real possibility now that a rep for Nickelodeon has said the network has no plans to remove Brown, 19, from the running for the favorite male singer award and favorite song for "Kiss Kiss."
"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 tells PEOPLE.
As to whether Brown will actually attend the award ceremony in Los Angeles, a source close to the situation says Brown never intended to go and, contrary to reports, has not attempted to gather votes.
"Chris has been hanging out with Rihanna, working on his music and spending time with and speaking with his mother and pastor," the source says. A spokesman for Nickelodeon confirms that Brown is not scheduled to attend.
