Tom Bergeron Refuses to Interview Troubled Chris Brown
Beloved U.S. TV host Tom Bergeron has asked the producers of "Dancing with the Stars" to excuse him from an interview with Chris Brown when he performs on the show on Tuesday night, March 29, because he can't promise not to poke fun at the R&B star's troubles.
The temperamental singer hit the headlines last week (ending March 25) when he smashed a window backstage after an appearance on breakfast show "Good Morning America" - following a tense interview about his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna. And Bergeron doesn't want a repeat of that showdown on his show.
In an interview with Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest, Bergeron says, "Don't put me in a position where you're asking me to not say something, 'cause I won't really do that."
Brown has stated he no longer wants to discuss his past problems in interviews.
