Various sources report R&B singer Chris Brown stormed off the set of “Good Morning America” after an interview filled with questions about his 2009 assault of Rihanna and the ensuing legal fallout. ABC’s Robin Roberts initially asked Brown about a court-imposed restraining order, requiring him to stay away from Rihanna. Brown deflected questions about his tarnished public image following the assault, and while the interview was awkward, he didn’t appear angry.
TMZ.com originally reported Brown stormed off to his dress room after the interview segment. Brown then reportedly broke his dressing room window with a chair before allegedly confronting a segment producer on his way out of the building. Security was called, but no arrests were made.
Part of Brown’s 2009 plea agreement called for him to be placed on five years of probation. After the interview he posted the following message to his Twitter feed; the message has since been deleted:
“I’m so over people bringing this past shit up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bullshit.”
UPDATE: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts has invited Chris Brown to return to the show for interview. “I wish him the absolute best,” Roberts said. “We extended the invitation to him [to come back], and sure hope he takes us up on it because I’d sure love to have another chat with him.”
