NEW YORK, March 24 (UPI) -- Singer Chris Brown has apologized for throwing a tantrum at the "Good Morning America" studio in New York this week.

Brown, 21, reportedly flew into a rage and smashed a window after "GMA" anchor Robin Roberts asked him questions during an interview Tuesday about a violent episode involving his ex-girlfriend, pop star Rihanna.

Brown, who is making the rounds promoting his new album, is on probation for assaulting Rihanna during a heated argument in a car in February 2009.

He could have faced prison time if it was determined he violated his probation by committing vandalism at the "GMA" studio. That won't happen since ABC has decided not to involve police in the matter, TMZ reported Wednesday.

UsMagazine.com said Brown took responsibility for his actions during an interview on BET's "106 and Park" music program Wednesday.

"First of all, I want to apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, or anybody who was offended or really looked, and [was] disappointed at my actions," Brown said of the "GMA" incident. "Because I'm disappointed in the way I acted."
