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.

One, why does he bring up Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen has nothing to do with Chris Brown's life. I've noticed that Brown brings up other instances that happened with other people to excuse his behavior. "I can break windows, scream at people, threaten people by getting into their face and staring them down, and refuse to follow through with my responsibilies, (not doing the scheduled show he had said he would do), and not control my anger, because Charlie Sheen is acting crazy and in the news"? That doesn't excuse his behavior, he couldn't control is anger and it erupted out of him and caused alot of damage and trouble and he doesn't take respnosibility for it or apologize, but instead complains about all the people hate'in on him and not Charlie Sheen. Secondly; I undesrstand why he would be angry and upset, he obviously didn't want to bring the past up and kept trying to drop hints on Robin Roberts to change the subject and not talk about it, but Roberts just kept ignoring him and making him uncomforatble and refusing to change the subject. It could make anyone upset and angry, the thing is he didn't control his anger, and he should have. Most people have to deal with people closing the elavator doors on them, pulling out into the streets with out looking, clipping their side mirror on your car, and people have to figure out how to deal with their anger because they have responsibilities, they have jobs they have to go to, children to pick up, a house to clean, dinner to feed, bills to pay and they can't go around breaking things when they are angry and refusing to go into work because their boss is a ****, because they wold lose their jobs or lose the house. Chris Brown has none of that hanging over his shoulder, so there isn't a real need to learn how to control his anger, so he doesn't and he lashes out and breaks things and the thing the really gets me, is the fact that he doesn't feel like what he did was wrong, and he justifies his angry outburts. Brown, doesn't show very much maturity at all, he needs to grow up and start taking responsibility for his actions and learn to control his anger. Maybe if he does that he will find more people on his side than against him.

Wow who ever place the comment and did a reverse play on Robin, you are something else. Just think if that was Rihanna getting back with Chris and her asking some question pertaining to the incident.............another blow up and more damage to her.

I'm just a senior that is not a fan of Chris Brown because I don't know him. I did read about what he did to Rihanna,not good. However, I believe Robin Roberts was going into an area that didn't serve any purpose except to put this entertainer in a very bad place. Not acceptable!! He served his time, now leave that issue alone. Encourage the man to continue with his line of work. He stated he didn't want to discuss the past. It's called respect!

Why do we have to continue to hear about this talentless piece of garbage? He is irrelevant. Isn't his 15 minutes (too much) of fame about over??

Obviously breaking a window was the wrong thing to do, but man, it's has to be difficult moving forward when people always remind him of his past mistakes. I bet there's a lot of anger and frustration built up inside, but he definitely does not express it well. People break windows break every day, it just sucks he chose that particular window. LOL

Rhianna never deserved to get hit...but I don't think she's any more stable or mature than Brown based on everything I've read. She has a whole new set of issues, they just are not big as attention gainers.

At the end of the day, they are both very very young and not trained well to handle all these types of situations they're being put into, so it just seems like a lose-lose situation :/

Chris Brown is as a brown turd, flush this guy down, or lock him up before he kills somebody including himself. Gansta rap- BS, why does ghetto get this much press anyway. He approved the questions and then on air decides to flex, throws a chair, breaks glass lucky somebody on the street didnt get hurt. Hey Judge, throw his crap in jail with the real gangsters.

I don't see the need to break windows, but he made it clear to that lady, that he was there for his record and she kept nagging him about **** that happened 2 years ago, Rihanna has said she asked for things to be dropped, so others need to drop it as well and let him go on with his life!!!

Brown is from my area and is just another example of turning into an "overpaid thug."
