Report: Chris Brown trashes 'Good Morning America' set - breaks window, leaves before second performance (video)

The morning of Chris Brown's new album launch quickly turned into a disaster. The singer appeared on Good Morning America (ABC) for an interview with co-host Robin Roberts and to perform two songs from the F.A.M.E album. He reportedly left his first performance in a rage, trashed his dressing room and stormed out of the studio without his shirt and before his last scheduled performance.

The Huffington Post reports that Chris was immediately asked about the now "relaxed" restraining order following his domestic abuse incident against Rihanna in February 2009. He answered, "I mean, it's not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation, and I think today's the album day, that's what I'm focused on."

He then answered a question pertaining to the acronym of his album's title, of which he answered "forgiving all my enemies" and "fans are my everything," simultaneously. Off of his answer, Robin asked Chris again about the Rihanna situation, but he again emphasized the album. He finally stated that he could care less about what other people thought of him.

After the close of the interview and a performance of "Yeah 3x," Chris left the stage and flew into rage as he entered his dressing room. TMZ reports that he possibly shattered a window with a chair before leaving the studio shirtless.**

TMZ also reports that Robin asked Chris to pre-approve the questions before the interview.

SIDE NOTE: Though things spiraled out of control backstage, it is noted that Chris did maintain his composure throughout the interview and performance. Watch the interview, below:


Note**: ABC News has not confirmed whether it was Chris or a member of his party that threw the chair at the window.

UPDATE!: ABC News reports that during Chris' stay backstage, a cooler was thrown and his dressing room window was shattered, but they have not named and/or discovered the person that committed those acts. Chris is said to have joined his entourage before heading backstage. In a statement released Tuesday, ABC News said "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that’s what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown."

Chris took to Twitter moments after the incident, saying "I’m so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for there [their] bulls**t." The tweet was deleted three minutes later.
