Chris Brown has apologised for losing his temper and allegedly tearing up a dressing room after appearing on Good Morning America earlier this week.

On Tuesday, the 'Yeah 3x' singer reportedly damaged property backstage at the news programme's New York City studios after being probed by GMA host Robin Roberts about his troubled past with former girlfriend Rihanna.

While appearing on BET's 106 & Park on Wednesday, Brown stated that his angry response to the interview was inappropriate.

"First of all, I want to apologise to anybody who was startled in the [GMA] office, or anybody who was offended or... disappointed at my actions," he said. "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."

The singer added: "I got very emotional… And I apologise for acting like that."

After insisting that he didn't harm anyone during his outburst, Brown charged that his anger was set off when Roberts asked questions that had not previously been agreed to.

He explained: "I felt like, 'Okay, they told us this just so they can get us on the show so they can exploit me'. You know, that's what I thought… I kind of took it very, very hard.

"And I kept my composure throughout the interview, although you could see me upset, you know. I kept my composure and did my performances, and when I got back, I just let off, like, steam in the back."

Brown went on to suggest that he's moved past the incident and called on his fans not to harass Roberts and her employers at Good Morning America.

It was reported earlier this week that Brown's scheduled performance on next week's Dancing with the Stars will go on as scheduled.
