Teen star Justin Bieber voiced his support for Chris Brown on Tuesday (22Mar11) - just hours before the embattled singer was accused of suffering a meltdown in New York.
Brown is said to have become annoyed during an interview on Good Morning America when the host asked him questions about his 2009 assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna, and after the chat he allegedly flew into a rage and hurled a chair at his dressing room window.
Bieber recently collaborated with the Kiss Kiss hitmaker and he took to his Twitter.com page on Tuesday morning to reiterate his support for Brown and their joint track Next 2 You.
Bieber, who is currently on tour in the U.K., wrote, "Shoutout to Chris Brown who has Fame dropping tomorrow. Album is crazy. We got a record on there with me and him called Next 2 You."
Late on Tuesday, Bieber wrote of his delight after the single climbed to number 10 on the iTunes digital download chart, adding, "Next 2 You is now #10 on iTunes!! Nice!! Greatest fans ever!! Thank you!!"
