Star in trou­ble over out­burst

Townsville Bulletin - - The Goss -

R& B singer Chris Brown could be in trou­ble with the law once again fol­low­ing an al­leged vi­o­lent out­burst at ABC’s Good Morn­ing Amer­ica stu­dios this week.

Brown, 21, re­port­edly be­came en­raged and smashed a huge plate glass win­dow af­ter be­ing asked ques­tions about his 2009 do­mes­tic vi­o­lence con­vic­tion fol­low­ing the bru­tal as­sault of his for­mer girl­friend, R& B singer Ri­hanna.

Brown was in­ter­viewed by ABC’s Robin Roberts, who asked the singer sev­eral ques­tions about Ri­hanna and about his new num­ber-one al­bum ‘ F. A. M. E.,’ in­clud­ing what the ti­tle stood for.

‘ For­giv­ing All My En­e­mies’ and ‘ Fans Are My Ev­ery­thing,’ he said.

Roberts asked who those en­e­mies were, and if Brown un­der­stood why some peo­ple might see him in a neg­a­tive light fol­low­ing his as­sault con­vic­tion.

‘‘ I’ve been fo­cus­ing on this al­bum,’’ Brown said, grow­ing vis­i­bly an­noyed. ‘‘ So def­i­nitely this al­bum is what I want them to talk about, and not what hap­pened in the past, two years ago.’’

Fol­low­ing the in­ter­view, the singer re­port­edly stormed into his dress­ing room and screamed so loudly that other guests and peo­ple back­stage called se­cu­rity.

Dur­ing the fit, Brown smashed an ex­te­rior win­dow of his dress­ing room with a chair, ac­cord­ing to mul­ti­ple re­ports. The dam­age to the win­dow was ex­ten­sive, with the ground be­low cor­doned off due to bro­ken glass frag­ments.

Brown was pho­tographed leav­ing the build­ing with­out his shirt on, re­port­edly con­fronting a seg­ment pro­ducer be­fore em­ploy­ees stepped in to in­ter­vene.

The New York Po­lice Depart­ment said no charges or com- plaints had yet been filed by ABC or any­one else re­gard­ing the al­leged early-morn­ing in­ci­dent. But with Brown still on pro­ba­tion from his 2009 as­sault con­vic­tion, an at­tor­ney told Fox News that if he were to be charged and con­victed of a crime, Brown could face jail.
