ABC Won’t Press Charges Against Chris Brown Over Meltdown

| by Oh The Scandal

Chris Brown had a well publicised meltdown on Good Morning America this week, including, according to TMZ, facing off with a segment producer of the show, and throwing a chair through a window.

 Luckily for him, it looks like ABC will not press charges after his backstage outburst after the interview with Robin Roberts.

TMZ reports that the NYPD will not investigate the incident, because “there is no complaining victim”.

What spurred the outburst? Roberts asked him questions about Rihanna on the show. She insists that he knew all about the questions in advance:

“Any time we have a guest, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter and the topics. And even right before the interview I let him know,” she said.

Chris is currently on probation for the February 2009 assault case where he attacked his then-girlfriend Rihanna. He was sentenced to five years probation and 180 days of community service, and just recently a judge lessened the extent of the restraining order against him. The ABC pressing charges could have been very bad news for him.

Roberts says, just like everyone else, she was shocked by his outburst “because we’ve had a wonderful relationship. I’ve been to his home, he’s very gracious, and we’ve had easy conversation.”

She’s extended an invitation for him to come back on Good Morning America saying: “We’d love to have him back. He’s seriously considering that.”
