Allegedly Chris Brown "exploded in a rage" behind the scenes at Good Morning America today. Oh boy.


According to TMZ, Brown performed, then was interviewed by Robin Roberts, live in the Times Square studio. She asked questions about his new album (out today), but also about Rihanna, the restraining order, and the assault. Brown kept trying to redirect the line of questioning, saying "it's not really a big deal to me" and insisting that he just wants to focus on his new album and not "stuff that happened two years ago." During the line of questioning, you can see Brown become increasingly annoyed, and ABC reports that he was "visibly agitated."

After Brown was off the air, he allegedly stormed into his dressing room, screaming. The hair and makeup people were freaked out, and called security.


From TMZ:

We're told Brown was out of control, and one source present tells us he smashed a window in his dressing room, and the glass shattered and some shards fell onto 43rd and Broadway. ABC security tells TMZ ... the window was shattered with a chair.

By the time security arrived, Brown had ripped off his shirt and left the building.

And sources say ... on his way out of the building, Brown confronted a segment producer, got in his face and stared him down. People from the show got in between Chris and the producer to diffuse the situation.


Apparently Brown tweeted, "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bulls**t" but then deleted it. Since he's currently on probation, this story is developing, and there will be more to come, surely.

New York Post headline: "Rapper Chris Brown freaks out after 'GMA' interview, smashes window"

I've never head him exclusively called a "rapper" before (the post goes on to immediately clarify - he is a "raging rapper.") So, query to my fellow Jezzies: am I being overly-sensitive by feeling uncomfortable here, that Chris Brown is singularly and (and maybe incorrectly, I don't know his music well enough I suppose....) identified as a rapper when violent?
