Chris Brown: No charges, a nice dinner, strong album sales and an invite back to 'GMA' [Video]

News of Chris Brown's outburst Tuesday after his "Good Morning America" appearance surprised anchor Robin Roberts, she said Wednesday, noting that they'd invited the singer to return on the show. The network reportedly will not press charges related to damage done backstage.

"You saw me laughing during the interview," Roberts said, "because when he was doing that I thought he was joking about some things because of the easy relationship that we have, and I'm glad that we've extended an invitation, we'd love to have him back, and that he's seriously considering that."

Roberts had interviewed Breezy previously for "20/20" in late 2009. She said that before the interview she'd talked with Brown about areas they might cover, including the recent relaxing of a court order that he stay away from Rihanna. A since-deleted Twitter message indicated that he was upset by a focus in the interview on the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend.

The New York Police Department won't investigate the backstage incident because there is no complaining witness, law enforcement sources told TMZ. That's good news for the singer, who risks jail if he violates the terms of his probation.

So what happened after the singer's "Yeah 3X" performance? (See the video below.)

"At one point, a cooler was thrown, and this window was broken in his dressing room," reporter Andrea Canning told Roberts on Wednesday, not specicially accusing Brown but saying that he had "stormed backstage" with his team. "At that point, he left the building with his shirt off."

The incident didn't seem to dent record sales: Brown's new release, "F.A.M.E." was the most downloaded album on iTunes on its first day out, an Apple spokesman said. The singer attended the album's release party Tuesday night after dinner, accompanied by girlfriend Karrueche Tran.

"Just left @chrisbrown nice dinner party," producer Russell Simmons said on Twitter. "Very talented Good kid."

As for Roberts, Tuesday was only her second day on Twitter, and apparently she heard from a lot of people after the dust-up. "Been a long day," she said in her last message of the day. "Have taken everything said, good and bad, to heart. Appreciate the support. Tmrw is a new day. This Too Shall Pass. Gnight."

Breezy is still scheduled to perform March 29 on "Dancing With the Stars," which also airs on ABC.

Yay!! Another celeb avoids jail!!! What a joke!!

The guy is an idiot and needs to learn accountability. I'm sorry they have chosen NOT to press charges. It only encourages him. He will never grow beyond "The Terrible Twos". Dyane

Yea, he's back! His F.A.M.E album is projected to sell 250K-275K this week and is number 1 on iTunes.

Rihanna's LOUD album debuted in November with 207K in the first week. She's also having trouble selling tickets in the US.

He is back and I love the kid for the first time. Nice album. Deserves to sell this.

Chris Brown answered Robin’s questions and tried to move on – letting her know that Rihanna was not a part of his life anymore. Further that he was there to promote his album also and formost. Key Word – his Album. He let her know that he had no interest in Rihanna any longer. Should have ended then. But, Robin was trying to get a story that wasn’t there. I’m disappointed in Robin because this young man is trying to move on like Rihanna has, but she insist on forging a story that simply wasn’t there. Chris is not interested in being around Rihanna. Now I hope Robins’ viewers got that because Chris doesn’t want that type of attention. He is about business now. And Rihanna has moved on and doing what she does. Two different lives, apart. I pray that Chris can get back to and continue to advance in his career. Robin pulled a tricky stunt by making his visit not about his music but about his reaction to her taunting him. I was rather surprise at the way he handle himself on the set. His demeanor was a little tense, he spoke slowly out of the side of his mouth. So, why would she keep pushing for her story? And then the next morning she realize she was not going to get anyone on board with her piece of news about this very popular young man. I wish it had been someone like Rick James – LOL Now that would have been a story for her asking!!!

i agree with laura once brezzy did not want to answer past questions it should have stayed on track about the album.i love the record on the album she an't you.much love to breezy and sucess.stay focus
