March 22, 2011 — -- R&B singer Chris Brown stormed off the set of "Good Morning America" today after co-anchor Robin Roberts asked him about his domestic abuse incident with Rihanna.
"What's going on now is recently the restraining order has been relaxed," Roberts began, referring to the restraining order placed on Brown after his 2009 altercation with his pop star ex-girlfriend. "Have you all seen each other, been around each other?"
"I mean, not really," Brown replied. "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. Everybody go get that album."
Roberts asked Brown about the situation two more times; Brown seemed increasingly agitated as their conversation progressed. After the interview, Brown performed "Yeah 3x," the lead single off his new album, "F.A.M.E." The moment the song ended, he let loose.
Brown stormed off stage and went back to his dressing room. Then he came back down the hall, still backstage, and stopped upon seeing the person who produced the segment. Brown didn't have his shirt on.
The show's hair and makeup staff said they had called security because they heard loud noises coming from Brown's dressing room.
It was then discovered that a window had been smashed in Brown's dressing room. The thick glass was destroyed and strewn across the street below.
By the time the smashed window was discovered, Brown and his team had left the building. Paparazzi photos show the singer shirtless outside "GMA's" Times Square studio.
ABC News released a statement following the incident: "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that's what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown."
In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault stemming from an altercation with Rihanna and was sentenced to five years probation and six months of community service. His probation was downgraded in February to a restraining order mandating that he stay 10 yards away from Rihanna.
