Chris Brown allegedly stormed off stage and shattered a window in his dressing room after a "Good Morning America" interview with Robin Roberts, who continued to question the singer about the criminal case involving his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
"What's going on now is recently the restraining order has been relaxed," Roberts said in the interview, referring to the order placed on Brown after the 2009 altercation that left his then-girlfriend bloody and bruised. "Have you all seen each other, been around each other?"
"I mean, not really," Brown 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. I think today's the album day so that's what I'm focused on. So, everybody go get that album."
The singer's album "F.A.M.E." went on sale Tuesday and Brown, showing off bleached-blond hair and tattoo sleeves on both arms, told Roberts that the acronym stood for "forgive all my enemies" -- which prompted her to bring up the Rihanna issue again. "It was very serious what you went through ... how have you been able to put that ..."
"I've been focusing on this album," Brown responded, cutting her off. "I think this album is what I want people to hear and really get into. So definitely this album is what I [want] them to talk about, not the stuff that happened two years ago."
After the 21-year-old performed his new single, "Yeah 3x," he reportedly stormed off the stage.
"Once backstage, according to insiders, Brown stormed into his dressing room and started screaming and tearing the room apart," ABC reported. "Workers in the building called security. Before they arrived, insiders say Brown smashed a window in his dressing room, with the glass shattering and falling onto 43rd and Broadway."
"I'm so over people bringing this ... up!!!" Brown tweeted at 9:49 a.m. EDT, "Yet we praise Charlie
Sheen and other celebs for there [behavior]." But the tweet was quickly removed.
Perhaps the image makeover stopped at the hair and tats?
