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.

Violence of this type is not taken seriously by the law.

Why you don't get five years in jail for a violent assault like this?

What a rude, inconsiderate bitch she is to CONTINUE ask him over and over again about that incident. Even after he said he didn't want to talk about it. He's already been tormented millions of times since the whole "incident", (which happened a very long time ago now). He went through a lot after making such a big mistake. Yes (he should have)<--and did, but we need to remember that 'HE DID' pay his dues in many ways. To name a few: endless counseling, anger management courses, etc. Not to mention he's apologized numerous times, expressing how he takes full responsibility for his immature actions and how after everything in these past couple of years, he feels that he has grown up in more ways than one. No matter what, this is something that will stick with him forever, whether we remind him or not. The whole thing is traumatic enough to stay in his head for the rest of his life. He will always be harassed over this and it's sad. This interview was him trying to move on from all of that negativity and people need to recognize that. The fact that he kept saying "I'm trying to talk about the Album", rather than talking to her about that incident, wasn't him 'NOT taking responsibility', it was him simply trying to move on and talk about what he was there for: The ALBUM. What more do we want from him? Let's allow him to ****in move on! Damn...

true Muppet wish people would listen to his side of the story people know nothing about him these things happening to him like Rhianna and this s**t do you even know what happened i don't ever believe the media they tell you some things, but "leave out" parts its sick and dumb people calling him a "douche-bag" "a s***bag" and other stuff is dumb i bet he is a good guy....

what you see and hear from the t.v is different from where your up close and hear, and even know the person....

To me it seems he noticed what he did to Rihanna was wrong and he wants to put it behind him and start over fresh. So when he was told he was going to be asked about it he figured he could just forget about it and talk about his album, his interviewer didn't get the hint and continued upon the question. He then became overwhelmed and this resulted in the broken window. Chris Brown is not a dangerous guy, he is just emotional when it comes to the 'Rihanna' incident.
