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.

he was lucky to be on GMA, what did he think they would ask about. Enough with the second chances in this country. People don't change. This guy is trash and should be written off.

I hope he didn't have anyone fooled that he was a changed man cause he didn't fool me. I figured something like this would eventually happen. I hope GMA files a police report and he gets his ass taken back to jail. Hopefully he will be put in a program that actually does help him.

The fact that he stormed off, ripped off his shirt, smashed a window, yadda yadda yadda, proves that he has learned *nothing* from the Rhianna issue and from his anger management classes. I think, for his sake, Brown needs to be dropped by his label ASAP and take a few years off in another state to mature and grow as a person. Why hasn't society turned their back on him yet? Oh, that's right, because for some reason we celebrate unstable trainwrecks like Charlie Sheen.

What a piece of ****. I feel sorry for the people who sympathize with him. You'll probably be a victim of one of these types. Perhaps you already are :(

I hate Chris Brown. What he did was disgusting, and he feels NO REMORSE for what he did. Maybe if he didn't act like a punk, people wouldn't treat him like one. Charlie Sheen didn't physically pummell the s**t out of the woman he was with. That's the difference, you dirtbag.

Well theres always a woman behind everything to cause something like his past situation to happen. why bring up old stuff while CB is actually focusing on his present and future. I for one still find it pretty odd that those other photos of Rhianna were "leaked" weeks before FAME dropped. For those that keeps calling CB a woman beater, theres two sides to a story. Know both sides before pointing the finger at one person. She's as guilty as CB; possibly more guilty than he is, especially when that bs is still being brought up each time he makes an appearance somewhere or do something good. Things could've had be dealt with differently but his buttons were pushed. He did what he had to do as a punishment and now focus on himself and his career. Roberts knew what she was doing and knew she shouldn't had done it. CB's mind is on his album so talk about his album! Get out the past! He's young and learning. My words to CB Keep doing your thing. Awsome job on FAME! :)
