NEW YORK - Chris Brown punched out three cameramen and two production assistants after his appearance on Good Morning America.
Chris Brown trashed his dressing room backstage at ABC’S Good Morning America, right after he slapped around some of the crew on the set.
Brown was on GMA to promote his new album, “F.A.M.E.”. He gave an uncomfortable interview to the “G.M.A.” co-anchor Robin Roberts, who kept asking Brown about a 2009 incident involving his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna. He had pleaded guilty to a charge of felonious assault and was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community labor.
Brown told Roberts that a restraining order against him had recently been relaxed. Roberts then asked if he and Rihanna still saw each other. Brown replied, “I mean, not really,” and he avoided follow-up questions, wanting instead to talk about his album.
Mr. Brown performed a song from F.A.M.E and returned to his dressing room. He then stepped back onto the set and punched out three cameramen. He was hopping around like a boxer when he punched Al Jangigian, the 65-year-old Stage Manager. Brown went on to slap around production assistants Jessica Martin and Cynthia Bookman. “He hit me three times while singing his song Yeah 3X,” said Bookman.
Brown took his shirt off, pointed to his tattoos and rapped about Jell-O and Tootsie Pops. He ran circles around the set then went to his dressing room and smashed a window, leaving glass in the room and on the street outside ABC’s studio in Times Square. Brown and his representatives left the building, drinking champagne from the bottle and yelling, “that’s what I’m talking about!”
ABC declined to comment on the incident, but crew members have each filed charges against Brown. Meanwhile, Brown took off all is clothes and went downtown to play basketball on 4th Street.
Brown calls people who don’t like him, “naysayers.” He calls people that he has punched or beaten, “annoying” and he calls his fans “my lovers.” According to Chris Brown, Chris Brown is the nicest guy on the planet.
