Brown storms out of ‘GMA’

A raging and shirtless Chris Brown stormed out of “Good Morning America’s” Times Square studio Tuesday, a source confirmed to People.com.

“He was visibly upset and appeared livid after the interview,” the source said of Brown’s being asked about his 2009 felony assault case involving his then-girlfriend Rihanna.

During an interview pegged to the release of his new album, F.A.M.E., Brown, 22, told “GMA” anchor Robin Roberts, “It’s not really a big deal to me now, as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life. Today’s the album day, so that’s what I’m focused on.”

When Miss Roberts inquired about the legal issues still stemming from the case, Brown said, “This album is what I want people to hear and people to really get into, so definitely this album is what I want them to talk about and not stuff that happened two years ago.”

After the interview, Brown performed a number and then, according to local affiliate WABC, went into his dressing room and reportedly screamed and started to tear apart the room. Security reportedly was summoned.

Brown did not perform a second song, as had been scheduled. Instead, he ripped off his shirt — New York temperatures were in the mid-40s Tuesday — and left the building, WABC says.

Representatives for Brown did not immediately return calls for comment.
