Chris Brown

Violent Outburst

at 'GMA'

3/22/2011 3:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown exploded in rage behind the scenes at "Good Morning America" this morning ... smashing a window and storming out without a shirt ... sources tell TMZ ... and it was triggered by on-air questions about the Rihanna incident.

ABC sources tell TMZ ... Brown performed and was interviewed by Robin Roberts live from the Times Square studio when she began asking about the infamous incident. 

Chris Brown Good Morning America

Brown tried to redirect the questions to focus on his album -- but Roberts continued to ask about Brown's legal issues stemming from the Rihanna incident.

We're told after the interview, Brown freaked out, storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security.

We're told Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway.  ABC security tells TMZ ... the window was shattered with a chair.

We're told by the time security rushed the area, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building, blowing off another performance he was supposed to do for the ABC website.

And sources say ... on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down.   People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to defuse the situation.

Remember -- Brown is on probation for the felony beating and he's required to obey all laws. 

UPDATE 6:49 AM PT:  Brown just tweeted, "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t."

UPDATE 6:59 AM PT: Brown has already deleted the previous tweet ... and added a new one that reads, "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"

UPDATE 7:48 AM PT: Glass workers just showed up to fix the window.

Robin from GMA did try to exploit him. That's what they do to all the stars. She dissed his album, his visit. She didn't even try to fake interest in his album. She should have not touched the topic.

I know he needs more counseling, probation. Yet his initial tweet is so true. Here is a young, handsome, talented {MORE than Phoney Rihanna}singer/dancer who is clearly still heartbroken over breakup & Robin pushed his button 3Xs after 2Xs he changed subject to his new album. Everyone deserves a 2nd chance.

Close your eyes: Imagine you have violent temper mgmt issues, you fall madly in love with the hottest r & b performer, but you are BETTER performer & no one pays you attention after the court incident. Now some dodo head on GMA {Robin} brings up issue 3x's after you change subject 2x's. I would snap too. Yet when Charlie Sheen does it, everyone looks the other way.

I'd say send Chris to Rehab that deals with Violent Temper Mgmt issues. I would suggest a new hot girlfriend to forget that FAKE Rihanna who played with heart/mind.

P.S. -GMA host Robin & Co need to get sensitivity training/Exploiting .
& his 1st tweet is TRUE about Charlie Sheen double-standard

He is truly an overgrown violent child..and the only argument he has is - Charlie Sheen did it too and you all love him, why can´t you love me too- what a shame..

The media job is to constantly remind and at the same time focus more on short comings than overcomers. He is young and so is she did anyone ever say to her keep her got damn off hands of hitting men as well. Chris brown does need to better handle uncomfortable situations or interviews because he is a star and will be known and forever remembered for his actions. Did his management know of the questions that will be asked or did they not put stipulations on what could be asked? I think they dropped the ball as well. Chris please be a bigger gentlemen that your fans know you to be and whats with the blonde hair and tats come on dont smear your image........

@Pammie8 Let me tell you something chic! No one knows what happened in that car but them. You heard things and I heard things. You have your opinion and I have mine. I dont thnk that putting your hands on another person is good for either sex, YOU AIRHEAD!!!So saying that, she should have kept her hands to herself like I said. As far as the interview, she was dead wrong for asking him those questions when was clearly trying to put this situation behind him. That was a terible time in his life and he wants to forget it. I am sick of hearing about it. Men who actually beat the hell out of or even killed their spouses got less attention than this.

OMG. reading the comments.. It appears everybody makes themselves to be pure and perfect. I don't agree with what he did. He has moved on and learn from his mistakes, just like EVERYONE who has made ANY type of mistake. Why doesn't any body talk about "her". She only teaches young women to be submissive and have no self respect. Why be in an abusive relationship. Have no self respect? come on now
