Good Morning America bosses have defended the controversial interview with Chris Brown which led to him allegedly hurling a chair at his dressing room window – they are adamant the questions put to the singer were "relevant and newsworthy".
Chris Brown made an appearance on the TV show yesterday morning to promote his new music, but he was left agitated during a chat with host Robin Roberts when she asked him about his 2009 assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown became increasingly annoyed by the questions about his legal troubles, telling Roberts, "This album is what I want them to talk about, not what happened two years ago."
After the chat, the singer allegedly flew into a rage and smashed a window in his dressing room, prompting worried staff members to call security.
Roberts has also given her reaction to the incident, writing on Twitter.com, "Sure has been an interesting AM @GMA. Still sorting thru everything myself… Been a long day, Have taken everything said, good and bad, to heart. Appreciate the support. Tmrw is a new day. This too shall pass."
Brown was convicted of assaulting Rihanna and sentenced to community service and probation, while he was also ordered to enrol on an anti-domestic violence course.
