Chris Brown has found himself in the news in an unfavorable light yet again.
The R&B sensation, who has been on a slow but steady comeback campaign, revealed today the simmering violent undercurrent that defined his near career halting incident with pop starlet and then
girlfriend Rihanna back in February 2009.
Today on ABC’s “Good Morning America” program, Chris Brown performed live in New York’s famed Times Square before being interviewed by co-host Robin Roberts. Roberts began to ask Brown about the incident between himself and Rihanna which apparently didn’t sit well with the 21-year old singer. Brown tried to sway Roberts’ questions back to his upcoming album but Roberts pressed on.
Sources who were in the studio say that Brown became violent and began doing damage to the backstage area, screaming and consequently breaking a window in the process. Security was called in but not before Brown left storming off shirtless. No other reports were offered regarding Brown’s whereabouts.
Fans have been vocal throughout Brown’s trials and tribulations and now is no different.
“Chris brown wild son,” @scholarshiprece tweets of the singer’s raging. “Damn that boy Chris Brown done snapped again,” @ChuuweeTUS continued.
The timing of this is unfortunate for Chris Brown as he just released his fourth studio album F.A.M.E., which has the buzzing single “Look At Me Now” alongside Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne. Brown has also taken to Twitter to voice his frustrations about this morning’s incident, but the singer has since deleted the tweet. The deleted entry read, “I’m so over people bringing this past sh-t up!!!” he said. “Yet we praise Charlie sheen and other celebs for there bullsh-t!”
While his outburst has people confused and spiraling, some fans sympathize with the artist.
@Slimluvu2 tweets to Chris, “@chrisbrown luv u Chris brown…hope u take it easy, I’ll pray 4 u.”
@BieberPRangers continues, “If they did their job properly, this wouldn’t happen. Why do they always want a reaction from him? Leave Chris Brown the f–k alone.” However, this incident may even help F.A.M.E. album sales.
“Chris Brown’s rampage makes me want to buy the album today even more,” @MigRos7 states.
Pleading guilty to felony assault in the Rihanna case, Brown was sentenced to five years probation and 180 hours of community service.
