Troubled R&B star, Chris Brown stormed off the set of ABC’S “Good Morning America” and angrily smashed a window following his interview with co-host, Robin Roberts this morning. The singer flew into a rage after Roberts asked him about his 2009 assault upon former girlfriend, Rihanna, and the status of his probation.
Brown, who was on the show to promote his new album, tried to steer the conversation toward his music, but Robert’s continued to ask questions regarding the assault and subsequent restraining order.
“Have you seen each other, been around each other?” Roberts asked the singer.
“I mean, I mean not really. It’s not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life and I think today is the album day, so that’s what I’m focusing on,” Brown said.
Roberts continued to probe Brown about the domestic abuse, but seeing that he was getting progressively more agitated, she shifted the conversation and asked Brown about the meaning behind his album title, “F.A.M.E.”
“Forgiving all my enemies,” he replied. “And definitely fans are my everything, being able to go through everything I went through and show my fans that I love them, you know? That’s what it is, fans are my everything.”
“When you say forgive all your enemies, who do you consider your enemies?” Roberts asked.
“Just anybody, naysayers, haters, whatever the case may be. I just think being positive and promoting is what I’m about now. So, that’s what I’m going to do,” Brown said.
After the interview, Brown reportedly stormed off the set and angrily barged into his dressing room and began to scream. Brown then smashed his large dressing room window with a chair and security was called immediately. By the time security arrived, Brown and his team had left the building, and he was seen ranting outside the Times Square studio without his shirt on.
Following the reported incident, Brown took to his Twitter, writing, “All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!”
He also wrote, in a Tweet that has since removed, “I’m so over people bringing this past sh** up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bullsh**!”
Robin Roberts also took to Twitter following the incident. She wrote, “Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself. Just my 2nd day on twitter, wonder what tomorrow will bring?”
ABC News released a statement regarding the interview: “As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that’s what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown.”
