A source says singer Chris Brown is frustrated and angry that he can't put his past behind him. So frustrated and so angry that he smashed a window, confronted a producer in a rage, ripped off his shirt and stormed out of the building after "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts brought up his assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna two years ago. On the show Tuesday to promote his new album F.A.M.E. (Forgiving All My Enemies), the singer became agitated during the interview when Roberts asked several questions about his 2009 assault of Rihanna. When Roberts asked about Rihanna, Brown tried to move the focus back to his new album. After the interview, Brown performed his song "Yeah 3x," then stormed off stage and retreated to his dressing room, where he removed his shirt and angrily confronted the segment producer. "The producer backed away," ABC reports. Hearing loud noises coming from the dressing room, the show's hair and makeup staff became concerned and called security. According to ABC News, "It was then discovered that a window had been smashed in Brown's dressing room. The thick glass was destroyed and strewn across the street below," falling onto the busy Times Square sidewalk at 43rd Street and Broadway. Brown was photographed as he stormed out of the studio shirtless, above. ABC News in a statement: "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that's what we did in this interview." Brown then wrote an angry Tweet: "I'm so over people bringing this past s**t up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for their bulls**t." But he quickly deleted that post, writing: "All my fans!!! This album is for you and only you!!! I'm so tired of everyone else!! Honestly!! I love team breezy!!"

Because Brown is still on probation for the assault, a police report could cause trouble for him and even send him back to prison. A TMZ source overheard a staffer tell a glass repairman, "I have a police officer coming just to take a look at it before we do any work." E News reports that plainclothes detectives did visit the scene after seeing reports on the broken glass in the media. However, the NYPD says officers were not called, no police report has been filed and no charges are forthcoming. That's good news from Brown. "If NYPD did not respond then there is likely no basis for the California probation department to take any action," criminal defense attorney Alec Rose tells E! News. "If no court or no police are involved then the property damage would be a private matter between himself and ABC."

Attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers have filed legal documents accusing Michael Jackson's longtime friend and doctor, Dr. Arnold Klein, of getting Jackson addicted to Demerol and another narcotic. In what TMZ calls "blistering legal docs," Murray's lawyers claiming Klein, a dermatologist, fueled Jackson's drug dependency; Klein's own documents show that he gave Jackson some 51 Demerol injections in the final three months of his life, including 11 over three days in April for minor procedures, including Botox, wrinkle fillers and acne treatments. The Murray documents say, "Due to Mr. Klein's actions, Mr. Jackson became physiologically and psychologically dependent on Demerol." Murray's team wants Klein to produce all Jackson's medical records, writing, "Dr. Klein is a relevant and highly material witness to the defense."

Charlie Sheen and ex-wife Brooke Mueller were both tested for recent drug use on March 11 as part of their custody settlement. Sources close to the couple first revealed that Sheen passed, which clears the way for him to see his twin sons, Max and Bob, 2, with a monitor present. Sources also say that Mueller tested "100 percent clean" as well.

After months of rehab, Demi Lovato back to work, although she's being coy about what she's actually doing and where. "First day back to working," she Tweeted Tuesday morning. "I can't wait to share with you guys what I'm doing today." But it seems as though she has not returned to her Disney hit, "Sonny With a Chance." A rep for Disney told E! News, "Demi's management will inform us when she is ready to return to work. As you know, last November, we announced that we would focus on our 'So Random' sketch comedy show (the show within 'Sonny With a Chance') to keep the staff, cast and crew employed. We began production in January and will debut those episodes this spring." Lovato, who has been keeping a low profile since leaving rehab in January, released a video message to her fans two weeks ago in which she said, "I can't wait to tell you guys what the future holds."
