Chris Brown allegedly trashed his dressing room, shattering a window, following an ABC “Good Morning America” interview, during which host Robin Roberts repeatedly brought up his infamous beat down of Rihanna in 2009.
Brown, according to several media reports, stormed out of the ABC news studios in Times Square, without a shirt. “He was visibly upset and appeared livid after the interview,” a source told People.
ABC News released the following statement: “As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that’s what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown.”
Brown was on the show to promote his new album F.A.M.E., an acronym that means forgiveness against my enemies.
After Roberts brought up the Rihanna incident the first time, Brown gave a reserved answer. “It’s not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life.
“Today’s the album day, so that’s what I’m focused on,” he said.
Roberts came back to the subject again asking if he was still dealing with legal issues from the case.
“This album is what I want people to hear and people to really get into, so definitely this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago,” he shot back.
Brown maintained his composure long enough to perform the first of two schedule songs.
But afterward, he could be heard screaming in his dressing room amid loud sounds of crashing articles and furniture.
He allegedly threw a chair at the window, shattering it and sending shards of glass to the street below.
Security reportedly was summoned, and Brown left the building, local affiliate WABC reported.
The episode may put in jeopardy another performance slated for “ABC’s Dancing with the Stars,” next week.
Brown may also be in violation of his probation, stemming from the Rihanna incident.
He was forced to complete a year-long domestic violence and anger management program as well as 180 days of community service for his plea in the assault.
After the show Brown tweeted, “I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t.” according to TMZ. The message was later deleted.
He followed up with this tweet:
“Thank you to everyone who supports my music!!! Key Word (music) !!! Love y’all,” as well as, “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!”
