Chris Brown's Tuesday appearance on Good Morning America didn't exactly go without a hitch.

Promoting his new album F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies), the singer, 22, was visibly irked during an interview with show host Robin Roberts as she asked questions related to his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. (Brown tried to move the focus back to his new record when Roberts asked about a relaxed restraining order between the former couple and other legal issues.)

After that tense chat, TMZ reports that Brown flew into a rage in his dressing room -- screaming and smashing a window by throwing a chair at it. (The shattered glass was visible from outside the building at 43rd street and Broadway in Manhattan.) Brown was later photographed storming out of the studio with his shirt off.

GMA sources also told TMZ that Brown "pre-approved" Rihanna-related questions prior to his sit-down with Roberts.

After the incident, Brown wrote an angry Tweet, even mentioning Charlie Sheen: "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for their bulls**t."

Brown quickly deleted that post, writing simply:"All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"
