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.

To Charlie, I guess your comments make you a N too because you are too stupid to move on from comments like the one you made. You are sad. Grow up and become a man and stop acting like a kid.

Yes, he did go to far by acting out his anger, but they should have let go of the past. He was there to promote his music and that is what should have been the interview! He is right Charlie Sheen can do no wrong and he has abused women and most people eat it up and treat that different than Chris Brown. The ignorant people on her calling him names. Does that make Charlie Sheen white trash. On by the way I am white married to a white man so save your comments.

No doubt about it the guy is a lowlife, and the woman is an idiot. If she wasn't skilled enough to recognize that such a question presented to an abusive and disturbed person would result in a typically violent reaction, she shouldn't have opened the can of worms she couldn't close.

Get over yourself Chris Brown! Throwing chairs around isn't a sign of you changing. Be a man and respond with some class and dignity.

Another celebrity who thinks he is above the law Lock his butt up, he's on probation for a felony, which I think is ridiculous too, Do the crime do the time. if it was me I am sure I would be languishing in a cell somewhere unpleasant. I would love to know what makes the legal system kowtow to celebrities. Screw them they are just like me.

He is not the first singer to physically hurt a female celeb. I think in America moral standards have gone down in music. Guys don't wear suits and ties and woman don't cover up. Our values have also gone down in the quality of music put out to the public. It's sad because singers dont knw how lucky they are to have the gift that many of us dont.Oh well it's just another example of how most of us take life for granted and turn away from God.this would have never happened if he was a God loving man.

Chris personifies to me, the tatooed, pierced, crude, not too articulate dummies this generation has produced! Nice job, kids!

No knowledge of the classics, no taste, no brains, no manners, no etiquette, no conception of refinement,...I love it...and what do we reward these morons of our current society with..borderline adoration and usually make them multi-millionaires as a reward for their stupidity! Take Charlie Sheen for example!

Parents, teach your children with examples like Chris Brown, Charlie Sheen, Paris Hilton, and all the other losers the pop culture adores!

Lets not blame Robin for Chris Brown"s anger issues..This guy is a danger to anyone around him with his short fuse..So if you say the wrong thing to him or ask the wrong question of him, this entitles him to act like a maniac? Anyone who spends their hard earned money on this no talent person, is feeding in to his ego problems..And he has absolutely no reason to have a big ego..He isn't that good looking and he sure has no singing talent..He needs to forget the music and work on his anger issues..I hope GMA files charges against him..

There was no reason for Roberts to ask him about his previous
Bad things even if he agreed. But he has a Temper and he better go to Good Temper School before he does some SERIOUS
Action. Roberts is wrong . But she looks for BIG SCOOPS.
In a 1 to 10 . I give Roberts a -1
