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.

FIRE ROBIN ROBERTS PLEASE! Chris's agent should sue her for aggravating the assault to the 'window' that is. She deserves to get sued for her NASTY MOUTH and her salary should be lessened by it.

I really had to ask God to help me with my words on this one. First of all for all of you that are saying that Chris Brown is such a bad person and violent and all that need to shut the hell up. We were not there in that whole drama that went down two years ago. No one ever asked what her part in this whole thing was. All you guys know is that he's a man and men should not hit women. About this day here he really tried to stay calm but she continue to talk about the crap. So why should he not get up set because he's a man, because he's Chris Brown or because he's been to anger management? How about the fact that he's humane and he can and should be allowed to take but so much. You all questioning the dumb ass photos and calling him a bastard n how he should burn in hell? He's a young man and you all are being so mean to him right now. Chris Brown you continue to grow Sweetie you will be OK and forget about these people who act as if they have never been upset or ever had a fight or have always been able to control there temper. Pay them no mind because they are all full of you know what. I love you CB keep your head up.

The interview made me uncomfortable. I didn't understand Robins insistance to talk about the incident. Moreover, what relevance it had to the album. I remember Robin, keeping her cancer a secret till she was ready to share. How would she feel if someone talked about it, and the result of her hair loss in an interview lets say that was her job, or her children, etc..He was young when it happened, and still is very young. He may have some issues he is still working through, but I would have been upset as well. I am not a Chris Brown fan, but I am a parent. Robin let it go. Oh and no spill on Rhianna, cause I know she was a victim. But after you have been hit a couple times, and you stay it starts looking freaky..

You can honestly see thay he is trying to be calm and promote his album. Even after he told her so kindly that he didn't want to discuss the last two years she still circle right back around and asked him again! I would be mad as hell too! The young man is trying to get on with his life. It's just like black people to drag their own into the mud, instead of trying to help them back up!We all fall short of the glory of god!As for him breaking windows, I do not condone that behavior!!! People are going to say things to you and about you in life that he is just going to have to suck up like a man, because he put himself in this situation, by dealing with a jealous woman, who couldn't control her hands or temper either. I pray that he can get a handle on the temper, but how much more scrutiny can a young man take? It's not because he's black, because I would feel the same way id it was Justin Beiber in this situation.

On probation? Judge needs to look at this and have him checked. Anger management is needed to maybe help him get over his troubled past, and find a better future for himself. CB, life is too short, get some help!

If it looks like dung, smells like dung; it's probably going to be dung. Brown is on the blame game. It is everybody else who needs to change and give him a chance to esplain himself. We need to move on and not judge the content of his character but rather what it is that he says he is going to do.
