LOS ANGELES (MCT) — Chris Brown got a little more than he bargained for during a promotional stop Tuesday for his new album.

During a sit-down on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Robin Roberts pressed the singer about the legal troubles stemming from his 2009 altercation on a Los Angeles street with then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown was accused of savagely beating the pop star and eventually pled guilty to felony assault and was placed on five years probation.

Roberts began the interview by noting that Brown’s restraining order against Rihanna had been relaxed and wondering whether the two still saw each other.

“I mean, not really,” he said. “It’s not really a big deal to me now as far as that situation. I think I’m past that in my life. I think today’s the album day, so that’s what I’m focused on. Everybody go get that album.”

The exchange went downhill from there, as Roberts made perfunctory mention of the album and then sidled back to the Rihanna incident as Brown grew visibly upset,

But that wasn’t all. After performing his new song “Yeah 3x,” Brown stormed off the set and back to his dressing room, according to ABC. The show’s staff heard loud noises coming from the room and called security. When Brown and his entourage departed a short time later, the staff discovered that a window in the dressing room had been smashed.

An ABC spokeswoman said that the network did not plan to press charges against Brown over the damage, which might have affected his probation if police had gotten involved.
