Chris Brown Freaks Out On Good Morning America

Chris Brown has serious problems. And not serious-but-still-kind-of-funny problems like Charlie Sheen. No, Chris Brown's problems result in violence. And today has been a problematic day for the troubled young performer.

He appeared on Good Morning America this morning to promote his new album, and not long after host Robin Roberts dared ask Brown about the fallout from his felony assault on then-girlfriend Rhianna, he apparently flipped the fuck out.


According to celebrity gossip site TMZ, which broke the story, as soon as the cameras went off, Brown went into a rage, screaming so loudly that the hair and make-up folks called security. He also apparently threw a chair through a window -- sending shattered glass into Times Square below -- and nearly came to blows with one of the show's producers. He was photographed leaving the studios with his shirt off, skipping a second scheduled performance.

A few minutes after he left the studio, Brown posted to his twitter account this little rant:

"I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t."

Ten minutes later that message had been deleted, and replaced with this:

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

In a subsequent TMZ report, Robin Roberts says Chris actually approved the Rhianna qestions beforehand. She says she's "pulling for him." For video of the interview, click here.

Like I said, Chris Brown has problems.
