R&B singer Chris Brown has been invited to return to “Good Morning America” and is seriously considering the offer just a day after storming backstage following an interview and performance.
“We wish him the absolute best and…we’ve extended the invitation to him and I sure hope that he takes us up on it, because we’d love to have another chat with him,” co-anchor Robin Roberts said today.
Brown had agreed to talk about his past on “Good Morning America” yesterday and was aware that questions would be asked about his domestic abuse incident involving his ex-girlfriend, pop singer Rihanna.
“Anytime we have a guest here on the program, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter, the topics that we’re going to discuss and we, even right before the interview, I said that to Chris and I was shocked like everybody else was,” Roberts said today on “GMA.”
Roberts asked Brown about the status of the restraining order against him stemming from a felony assault case involving Rihanna.
“Recently, the restraining order against you that Rihanna had issued has been relaxed…Have you seen each other, been around each other?” Roberts asked Tuesday.
“Not really. It’s not a big deal to me as far as that situation…This album is what I want to focus on and not something that happened two years ago,” Brown responded.
Roberts said that she thought Brown was joking when he tried to redirect the interview to discuss his new album, “F.A.M.E.”
“You saw me laughing during the interview because when he was doing that, I thought he was joking about some things because of the easy relationship that we have,” Roberts said.
A fuming Brown returned to his dressing room after the interview and performance of “Yeah 3x,” the lead single off his new album.
Then he came back down the hall, still backstage, and stopped upon seeing the person who produced the segment. Brown didn’t have his shirt on.
The show’s hair and makeup staff said they had called security because they heard loud noises coming from Brown’s dressing room.
