Chris Brown stormed out of an interview on Good Morning America earlier today, according to reports, tearing off his shirt and smashing a window, after being quizzed about ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
The singer was appearing on the famous US breakfast show to promote new album F.A.M.E at the time of the alleged incident.
It’s thought he became angry after show host Robin Roberts asked questions about his ex and the much-publicised assault case, which led to him being issued with a restraining order.
Asked of the incident during the interview, he said: ‘It’s not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life. Today’s the album day, so that’s what I’m focused on.’
‘The restraining order that Rihanna had issued against you has relaxed, have you seen each other been around each other?’ the interviewer continued.
‘This album is what I want people to hear and people to really get into, so definitely this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago,’ said Brown, sidestepping the thorny line of questioning.
Reports alledge that the star stormed off stage as soon as the live section of the show was over, flying into a rage over the disastrous interview.
It’s thought he begun to scream, tearing off his shirt, and smashing a window in his dressing room, before security were called to escort him out of the show’s New York studios.
‘He was visibly upset and appeared livid after the interview,’ one insider told People.
Chris was sentenced to 1,400 hours community service, ordered to complete domestic violence classes and issued with a five-year restraining order following his assault on Rihanna in February 2009.
Representatives for the star are yet to comment on today’s events.
