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.

What an idiot! I guess, like Gadahfi, he's going to insist that's he's not violent as he's being violent. And why is he holding that stupid microphone? He doesn't need a hand held microphone during the interview. Is that his stupid security blanket?

Here's another comment. Questions regarding his time and abuse with Rihanna was approved by Chris himself, so why was he sooooo upset. He knows he's wrong. Whay, whay what a baby. No one is praising Charlie Sheen he is also a baby and wants what he wants just like you. You both belong in the crazy house.

I can not believe people are actually saying that Robin Roberts did anything wrong??? SHe is doing her JOB and she is one of the best and most respected in the business! Chris Brown is a low life woman beater who makes all males not just black ones look bad!!!! He needs to be put in his place since the anger managment didn't work- he needs to spend some time behind bars.

This guy started out doing really well. He apparentely has anger issues that "must" be resolved if he intends to go any further in his career. I feel sorry for his next girlfriend!

Only God can save you man! Chris Brown and Rhianna are going to self-destruct as long as they are away from each other.

This guy is so yesterday and last decade. If he's today's role model for younger generations, watch out America. It's apparent he has serious anger issues that a more rational person would've tried to disguise diligently while promoting an album's new release. I think the boy is caring a tremendous amount of baggage he's learned at home from his father and needs to realize he's learned such behaviors through observation, which can be corrected as a young man if only he would realize it would not be considered 'weak' for him to ask for help before he gets much older. Now is the time Chris Brown, for you, to distance yourself from your family long enough to obtain a clearer perspective on life, demeanor and your career without continuing to alienate many more fans and folks alike who actually hold your future in their hands. If the material doesn't sell, it doesn't matter how many recordings you release.

HE SHOULD BE JAILED FOR HIS ACTIONS. LOWLIFE PEOPLE BECOME WEALTHY BY IMMATURE PEOPLE BUYING THEIR PRODUCT, THEY ACT LIKE THEY CAN COMMIT CRIMES & NOT PAY FOR THEIR ACTIONS.

Just because Chris Brown can't handle talking about what happened does not mean a reporter cannot bring it up. This is the problem, everyone was so fast to move on from it and allow him to continue being an idol that the gravity of what he did never sunk in. He still has issues, but everyone was so concerned with putting it behind him that nothing was ever resolved. He has anger issues and apparently the "time" he did wasn't good enough. What he did was heinous and noone should ever forget it. There are too many young boys out there that look up to him and think that it is okay to do what he did and be able to move on with your life. The woman never moves on. Her face may be healed from the cuts and bruises but that scar will never heal or be put behind her. And here's this little boy throwing temper tantrums on a professional set. He and everyone else that still supports him should be ashamed. I was a huge Chris Brown fan, very impressed by his talent, its a waste. He's a sh*tty human being. He calls himself a man the way he acted? Look at the interview he was giving to begin with. He is so immature in the way he speaks, the way he was sitting. Charges should be brought up against him and the judge should re-evaluate. Too many young biys are mimicking this behavior and it starts with foolish little boys like this.
