Chris Brown trashed his dressing room at "Good Morning America" and broke a window with a chair Tuesday after co-host Robin Roberts asked him about his attack on Rihanna, according to a person familiar with the show.
The person was not authorized to discuss the matter and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. Security was called, but not police.
Brown was on the ABC morning show Tuesday to promote his new album, "F.A.M.E.," released the same day. During his interview with Roberts, she asked him about the 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend - preceding her questions by noting he had been "very good" about talking about the attack.
"It was very serious what you went through and what happened," she said. "How have you been able to ..."
A clearly agitated Brown tried to deflect the line of questioning, saying he was past that and wanted to focus on his new CD.
