Robin Roberts

Chris Approved My

Rihanna Q's

3/22/2011 12:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robin Roberts asked Chris Brown if she could question him about the Rihanna incident BEFORE the live interview began on "GMA" this morning ... this according to sources connected to the production.

Robin Roberts

Sources tell TMZ ... Roberts insists both she and other "GMA" staff members spoke with Chris before the interview and asked if it would be OK to fire off "a few questions" about the Rihanna incident ... and Chris approved.

As TMZ first reported, Brown flipped out after the interview -- and apparently smashed a window in his dressing room.

Robin is telling people at the show she did NOT try to set him up ... and insists, "I'm pulling for the guy."

As for the broken window, sources say no one in the studio saw Chris throw the chair into the window ... but he was definitely in the dressing room when the window was smashed.

UPDATE 9:19 AM: After Roberts left the "GMA" building, she posted on her Twitter page, "Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself. Just my 2nd day on twitter, wonder what tomorrow will bring?"

I can't wait to see if this incident helps or hurts his album sales. Stars are endorsing his bad behavior on Twitter. That's why he can't change. He thinks there is justification for his behavior because fans and fellw celebs say its ok.

He might have approved one question so whay didn't she move on? White people have double standards andits so blantanly hypocritical. Although Robin is not white but she is working for 'the man' and has to do his requests.

His people may have approved the questions because they are in denial about his anger issues. Maybe he knew nothing about it.

Why can't people just let go of the past, he paid for his mistake and is trying to move on but everyone still brings it up. A person can only take so much before they explode!

Robin Roberts should just be quiet because now she's sounding stupid. Who'll believe that before the interview someone "asked if it would be OK to fire off "a few questions" about the Rihanna incident ... and Chris approved"? Yeah right.
