Chris Brown Flips Out, Smashes Window After GMA
Chris Brown's Tuesday appearance on Good Morning America didn't exactly go without a hitch.
Promoting his new album F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies), the singer, 21, was visibly agitated during an interview with show host Robin Roberts as she asked questions related to his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. (Brown tried to move the focus back to his new record when Roberts asked about a relaxed restraining order between the former couple and other legal issues.)
After that tense chat, an irked Brown performed his song "Yeah 3x," stormed off stage and retreated to his dressing room. ABC News confirms that Brown, suddenly shirtless, then confronted the segment producer angrily. "The producer backed away," ABC reports. Hearing loud noises coming out Brown's dressing room, the show's hair and makeup staff became concerned and called security.
TMZ reports that Brown destroyed a dressing room window by throwing a chair at it. (ABC News confirms that the glass was shattered, with the evidence visible from outside the building at 43rd street and Broadway in Manhattan.) Brown was later photographed storming out of the studio with his shirt off.
Says ABC News in a statement: "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that's what we did in this interview."
After the incident, Brown wrote an angry Tweet, even mentioning Charlie Sheen: "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for their bulls**t."
Brown quickly deleted that post, writing simply:"All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"
