The fallout from Chris Brown’s post-“Good Morning America” outburst continued on Friday (March 25), when The New York Post‘s Page Six reported that the singer has parted ways with his publicist, Tammy Brook.
Brook, who also reps athletes like Mike Tyson and Chris Bosh, could not be reached for comment by the newspaper, but according to other reports, she “quit” the job.
A source tells MTV News that the decision was mutual, but regardless, the news caps off a tumultuous week for Brown, who allegedly smashed a window at ABC’s Times Square studios following his interview with Robin Roberts, in which she repeatedly brought up his 2009 assault on then girlfriend Rihanna and the subsequent legal drama that followed. Brown then reacted to the interview in a (since deleted) tweet that read, “I’m so over people bringing this past sh– up!!! Yet we praise Charlie Sheen and other celebs for [their] bullsh–.”
That interview occurred on Tuesday, the same day Brown dropped his F.A.M.E. album, and hours before he was set to appear on MTV’s “The Seven” to premiere his brand-new video for the single “Beautiful People,” an appearance he subsequently canceled. Later that night, at his album release party, Brown was reportedly in great spirits. He has also apologized for the “GMA” incident, saying on BET’s “106 & Park” that he was “disappointed in the way [he] acted.”
All that drama hasn’t affected his album sales, though. According to Billboard, Brown’s F.A.M.E. album is set to debut atop the albums chart next week, with projected sales of 250,000-300,000 copies.
