Chris Brown’s rage over Rihanna question

Singer Chris Brown smashed a window with a chair and tore off his T-shirt during a violent outburst after an appearance on Good Morning America today.
The singer, who turns 22 in May, flew into a rage after he was questioned by TV anchor Robin Roberts live on-air about his assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
When pressed about the status of the restraining order taken out against him by the pop star, he became visibly agitated and dismissed it as ‘not really a big deal for me now’.
Brown is said to have been so angered by the questions that when he finished a scheduled performance of his track Yeah 3x, he stormed off stage.
He began to scream and is understood to have destroyed the thick window in his dressing room, leaving glass strewn across the street below.
The singer, who had ripped off his shirt, then confronted a segment producer in the hallway, according to ABC News.
Security were called by the hair and make-up team but Brown had already rushed out of the ABC network show’s studios in New York’s Times Square.
He did not return to perform a second track for the online audience, as had been scheduled.
Brown tweeted after the incident: ‘I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there [sic] bulls**t.’
He has since taken the message down.
He later wrote: ‘All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I’m so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!! Thank you to everyone who supports my music!!! Key Word ( music) !!! Love y’all.’
During the interview, Brown looked on edge as Roberts began to quiz him about his former girlfriend.
‘The restraining order that Rihanna had issued against you has relaxed, have you seen each other? Been around each other?’ Roberts asked.
He replied: ‘I mean not really, 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 is the album day so that’s what I’m focused on. Everybody go get the album.’
When she persisted with the line of questioning, he again tried to promote his new album F.A.M.E, saying: ‘I’ve been focusing on this album”.
ABC News released a statement following the incident that read: ‘As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that’s what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown.’
A Los Angeles judge last month relaxed a restraining order against Brown, meaning he can have contact with the 23-year-old Rihanna, provided he does not ‘harass, annoy or molest’ her.
He had been the subject of a five-year restraining order, which required Brown to stay at least 50 yards away from the Umbrella singer.
Brown was required to serve five years’ probation and community service, following the February 2009 assault on Rihanna.
