The Price of Chris Brown’s Mental Breakdown: $2,055!!!
Radaronline has learned exclusively the cost of Chris Brown’s mental breakdown during his Good Morning America appearance, and if I was the head at the television station, I would be sending him a BIG FAT BILL!
According to documents obtained by Radaronline, the invoice on the labor included:
* $583.26 for the glass
* $1472.10 for the labor of three men for five hours at $98.14 each
New York business Philip Kaplan Glass did the work and replaced the broken window while Chris Brown let off “a little steam” after an interview last week. Brown later appeared on BET’s 106 & Parkon Wednesday and apologized for his meltdown.
“First of all, I just wanna apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed with the way I acted,” Brown said.
“A lot of people don’t know what went down, and obviously when I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out a talking point sheet.
“As the interview proceeded, it was kinda thrown off. I was thrown off by it.”
“I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me. So I took it very, very hard and I really kinda kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you can see me upset, I kept my composure, I did my performance.”
In his defense, he did offer to pay the bill, but ABC turned it down.
MY 2 CENTS: As a journalist I’m offended by the term “talking point sheet”. Anyone who knows me is aware I have defended Chris Brown during the whole Rihanna incident. However I have seen no signs of maturity and it’s apparent he has anger issues. If you cannot talk openly about the actions you’re responsible for, why get into the business?
It’s a journalists responsibility to ask questions about anything they deem newsworthy. If celebrities are so concerned with what they want to talk about, well then maybe they should’ve chosen another profession and became a school teacher or something. I personally am not interested in interviewing anyone if boundaries are set.
Although I can understand the frustration on Chris Brown’s part with the repetitive nature of his case, Robin Roberts wasn’t out of bounds with her questioning, and would it have killed you to address it for 2-3 minutes then move on to the details of your album? Chris honestly has a lot of growing up to do and until he learns how to handle himself with the media the same mistakes will continue!
