Brown, 21, became angered during his live interview with co-host Robin Roberts, who asked repeated questions about his domestic violence incident with Rihanna, even though he was there to promote his new album, "F.A.M.E.," which was released on Tuesday. After the interview, Brown allegedly took his rage out in his dressing room, where he yelled loud enough to warrant a visit from security and broke a window. Shattered glass fell onto 43rd St. and Broadway, reported TMZ.com, which posted a picture of the smashed window. Brown reportedly then took off his shirt and confronted a "GMA" producer before leaving the building and skipping a planned second performance, which was to air on the "GMA" website. According to TMZ, Roberts insists that both she and other "GMA" staff members asked Brown pre-interview if he would be okay with being asked "a few questions" about Rihanna. Brown reportedly agreed, however apparently changed his mind soon after. A short time after his exit, Brown took to his Twitter account to express his displeasure over the interview and thank his fans for their continued support. "I'm so over people bringing this past shit up!!!" he tweeted. "Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bullshit!"This boy needs to grow the eff up! Although the cops were called [audio at the bottom of this post], no criminal complaints were filed. Yet! The recent outburst comes almost a year after he stormed out of another interview and less than a month after a judge in Los Angeles praised him and downgraded a restraining order issued against him after he hit Rihanna. CFCB was sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community labor after pleading guilty to beating Rihanna in 2008.
The folks over at TMZ got their enterprising hands on this audio, recorded outside the room where Chris busted the window. The woman (an ABC staffer) is speaking to the window repairman.
This photo from the folks over at Pretty on The Outside say it best:
Update, March 23: Robin says "anytime we have a guest here on the program, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter.. the topics that we're going to discuss, and even right before the interview, I said that to Chris, and I was shocked, like everybody else, because we've had a wonderful relationship. I've spent time with him... at his home. He was very gracious and we had a very easy conversation. You saw me laughing during the interview because when he was doing that I thought he was joking about some things because of the easy relationship that we have, and I'm glad that we've extended an invitation, we'd love to have him back and that he's seriously considering that."
Update, March 24: CFCB felt like GMA was exploiting him and issued this apology.
With that said, Wendy went in! Radio-Wendy is back!
