About a "Girl" Who Refused to Just Shut up and Take Orders

You could argue that the woman on the recording didn't really set up the man on the recording; instead, she let events play out in a way that seemed quite characteristic for the Clippers owner.

Chris Brown Goes Ballistic After 'Good Morning America' Interview With Robin Roberts

Comments (174)


As Chris Brown's fourth studio album, 'F.A.M.E.,' hits stores today, the singer is making headlines yet again.

This morning, during an interview on 'Good Morning America,' the R&B crooner reportedly had a meltdown following a series of questions about his 2009 domestic assault with ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

According to TMZ
, ABC sources are stating that Brown went into a frenzy, "storming into his dressing room and screaming so loud, the people in hair and makeup became alarmed and called security." ABC's security went on to add that the Jive Records artist shattered a window in his dressing room with a chair, causing some shards to fall onto 43rd Street and Broadway.

The site was also told that the singer also skipped his second scheduled performance for the network's Website before ripping his shirt off and confronting a segment producer as he was exiting the facility.

Brown is currently on probation from his felony charge.

Shortly after the alleged incident, the singer took to his Twitter to profess his frustration. "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t," he said before deleting the tweet and replacing it with a more toned-down message to his fans.

"All my fans! This album is for you and only you! I'm so tired of everyone else! Honestly! I love team breezy!"

Contrary to the 21-year-old's tirade, Robin Roberts insisted both she and her GMA colleagues spoke with Brown prior to the interview to get his approval of a few questions about the controversial incident, with the singer complying to the requests, reported TMZ. Roberts insists that she did not try to provoke Brown and that she was "pulling for the guy."

Last month, a superior court judge downgraded the restraining order, with Rihanna's consent, which banned Brown from contacting Rihanna and required him to stay 50 yards away from the pop star.

His probation is currently scheduled to end in August 2014.
