Chris Brown -- Violent Outburst at 'GMA'

3/22/2011 5:58 AM 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.

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 diffuse 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 Brown's handiwork.

Robin Roberts -- Chris Approved My Rihanna Q's


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

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 ask "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, 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.

Miami Dolphins QB -- Making a Boob of Himself


Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne should be having a stressful summer -- with his starting gig in jeopardy and that whole NFL lockout thing -- but you wouldn't know it by the way he's partying it up in the Bahamas!!

Henne was snapped over the weekend at bar in Nassau, where he stuffed a couple of balloons up his shirt and partied it up with a few friends.

Let's hope this is the only artificial substance Henne is ever caught putting in his system.

He was there to promote his album and Robin was a bully! He did his time and paid for his sins. He told not only once but twice why he was there! I wont watch taht show anymore.

Obviously, the guy still needs to work on his anger management. However, why is it that he gets treated differently than say, Charlie Sheen? Charlie has a very long history of bad behavior, but I don't see anyone pressing him all the time. Actually, Charlie's been let off the hook so many times......just wondering.

What a prime photo Op.! Act like an azz, break something, and then storm off without a shirt (so everyone can see your muscles and gangster ink). This guy knows EXACTLY what he's doing. Doesn't matter what they're saying about you, as long as they're talking about you!
Funny thing is, people who actually possess TALENT do not need to behave this way. Their appeal will stand the test of time and they will come out "on top" without making a spectacle of themselves. Chris and Rhianna both know their days in the spotlight are numbered, so they have to grab all the attention they can get, while the grabbing is good.

Over and over, this guy continues to prove that he is dangerous. Because people make money off what he does for a living, he continues to get away with it. If he were just some run of the mill guy, he would be in prison by now. He just violated his terms, which mean he should be locked up at this point. I doubt that will happen though.

I think Chris Brown has a nice voice and he has a couple of songs I like. the problem is he has a tremendous temper. If he doesnt get help for that something worse is going to happen. It WILL happen. Im sure hes tired of the questions about him and Rhianna but it happened and that will always follow him in that business. If I were him I would say something like" It was a bad time in my life, I regret it horribly and have worked on things like that never happening again". I hope he gets help.

COULD'VE KEPT HIS ANGER IN CHECK BUT THE FACT IS THOSE HOSTS, IE: ROBIN ROBERTS AND MEREDITH VIEIRA, ET AL, ASK SUCH BOLD AND BALLSY QUESTIONS, AT TIMES I'M AWED BY THE TENACITY OF THE QUESTION.

To reiterate the point that siding with a 'woman or child beater' has to be 'a situation of one being an abuser themselves', NOT TRUE IN THE LEAST. Do I think it is acceptable behavior, ABSOLUTELY NOT. I am saying that what is in the past is there, in the past. Cannot one be forgiven for past errors, or are they to wear the SCARLETT LETTER for the rest of their lives. If that was your son, would you not forgive him? Do people like that need help, OF COURSE THEY DO. Are these things forgotten, NO THEY ARE NOT, but if one tries to improve than give them some credit. I do not know this person, nor have I followed him, but I do know that sometimes people can agitate a situation, causing someone with a 'short fuse' to 'go off' as is the new language now. The point I am trying to make here is this was very wrong of Roberts to keep asking those questions of him. He was there to promote an album, not a 'confession of sorts'. That is the point I make. As far as being a battering, I would never harm a fly, I am of Buddist faith. However, how do you know I was not 'a battered person'. So do not make statements here of people with views other than your own and make those crude statements. You have no idea what is going on in people's lives, unless you are 'clairvoant' and I wouldn't believe you in that case either. So take the high road and stay in the grey area. I say, do not insult anyone, it is not your right to do so. It's no one's right.
