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.

I agree with him "move on" but his reaction says he hasn't grown at all. Own it and make better decisions. Throwing a hissy fit isn't going to prove anything.

IS THIS HOW YOU REDEEM YOURSELF? IS THIS HOW YOU ASK THE PUBLIC TO LOOK BEYOND YOUR PAST? GROW UP AND LEARN THAT YOUR GETTING ANGRY IS GETTING YOU NOWHERE AND QUICKLY! I PRAY YOU ARE TAKING ANGER MANAGEMENT CLASSES BECAUSE YOU OBVIOUSLY STILL HAVE ISSUES MY BROTHER!!!!

This guy is an ignorant assh**e with anger issues. Time for him to find a new profession cause I think people aren't going to forget that he tried to rearrange Rhianna's face. Throwing a chair and possibly killing people on the street below really shows how he has it under control. Lock this mother up!!!

This is awesome!, His career is "officially over"
And he once again has only himself to blame.
Boo Hoo Chris, your life is sooo hard!
Especially in light of whats going on in the world.

Enjoy jail, this will surly violate his probation.
There gonna put that window replacement at big buck, not to mention the risk he put a lot of folks in.

He is so screwed!

To Michella: BS. I don't care what the "other side of the story is". What he did is disgusting. He could've handled the questions as an adult, own up to it, admit he made a mistake, and say he's ready to put it behind him. But no...he lashed out like an idiot and proved that he has neither changed or matured in any way. Some people learn from their mistakes. He obviously didn't.

He has a point. We sit back and praise Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson who beat women and they get no jail time and no probation nothing that is fitting of what they do and he has done everything that was asked of him and still people cannot let it go. When we own up to a mistake we own up to it. It's time to let it go.

THIS IS A LIE.....TMZ WHY ARE LYING, If you guys take this as true all of you just dumb followers who follow the media and take every word as truth and would believe anything. Why would he mess his probation up, why would he do that knowing his album is out today. NO boo boo Chris won't ever put his career in jeopardy like he did before. Ever Again!

Now is ABC going to do the right thing and file a police report for damaged property and have him arrested. Or are they going to suck up to a singer and let it go.

This all just proves Chris learned nothing and does not regret what he did he just regrets what he lost in terms of money & fame.
