Chris Brown goes on rampage at 'Good Morning America' after he's asked about Rihanna beating case
Chris Brown went on a rampage on the set of "Good Morning America" after being asked about the criminal case against him involving ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
The outburst comes less than a month after a judge in Los Angeles praised Brown and downgraded a restraining order issued against him after he hit Rihanna.
ABC News reported that Brown smashed a window at the studio after ABC News anchor Robin Roberts asked him about the criminal case.
"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."
R&B singer Brown had completed a court-mandated domestic violence education program in January.
Brown was sentenced to the 52-week program, along with five years’ probation and 180 hours community service, after pleading guilty in August 2009 to felony assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna after a party.
At a hearing in February, Judge Patricia Schnegg commended Brown on his progress but noted that she wanted input from Rihanna, whose real name is Robyn Rihanna Fenty, before making a final decision on whether to lift the restraining order.
