"I wish him the absolute best," Robin Roberts said on GMA Wednesday. "We extended the invitation to him [to come back], and sure hope he takes us up on it because I'd sure love to have another chat with him."
Brown became enraged Tuesday after Roberts questioned him about his domestic violence incident with Rihanna and the subsequent restraining order. The singer tried to redirect the focus back on his new album, F.A.M.E.
, which stands for Forgiving All My Enemies. After the interview, Brown stormed off set, broke a window in his dressing room and left the studio shirtless.Roberts reiterated that Brown was informed that he would be asked about his past. Because of that, she "thought he was joking" when he said he didn't want to talk about something that happened two years ago.
"Any time we have a guest, we let them know ahead of time the subject matter and the topics. And even right before the interview I let him know," Roberts said. "I was shocked like everyone else, because we've had a wonderful relationship. I've been to his home, he's very gracious, and we've had easy conversation. ... We've extended an invitation. We'd love to have him back. He's seriously considering that."Brown is also still booked to appear on Dancing with the Stars' first results show of the season next Tuesday.Watch Roberts' explanation below:
