Chris Brown 'trashed dressing room'

Chris Brown trashed his dressing room and broke a window at the studio of US show Good Morning America after being asked about his attack on Rihanna, it has been reported.

A source close to the show said security was called after the singer, who was on the show to promote his new album F.A.M.E. by giving an interview to Robin Roberts, lost his temper.

During his interview with Robin, she asked him about the 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend. "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: "This album is what I want them to talk about and not what happened two years ago."

Robin laughed and thanked Brown for letting her discuss that matter with him, and after the interview, the singer performed.

But instead of singing another song for the online audience, as he was scheduled to do, he went to his dressing room and started smashing things, according to the source.

In a statement, 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."

Reps for Brown did not immediately return phone calls for comment. Brown is on probation for his assault on Rihanna.

He has been trying to rehabilitate his image since the attack and he's recently had success in the charts. Last month, a judge eased a restraining order that had prevented Brown from coming within 50 feet of Rihanna.

Brown tweeted his frustration shortly after the show: "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"
