      Russell Brand Deported From Japan

      Russell Brand deported from Japan by immigration

      British actor and comedian Russell Brand has been deported from Japan.

      He was travelling with his wife, Katy Perry, on the Asian leg of her California Dreams tour.

      She tweeted on Sunday: "So...my husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favourite place."

      Immigration officials in Japan have declined to comment on why Brand was deported, but Perry tweeted: "It was for priors from over 10 years ago."

      The 35-year-old star of the remade 1981 comedy, Arthur, has spoken openly about using drugs and sleeping around and has had various run-ins with police.

      He was arrested in September 2010 after he allegedly attacked a photographer at Los Angeles international airport.

      Brand's spokesperson told Newsbeat that she didn't know when the star would rejoin Perry, but that their plans had "clearly gone awry with this happening".

      The British star doesn't seem to have lost his sense of humour over the incident, tweeting: "Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."

      He went on to joke that he was falling in love with his captors, "Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled".

      Katy Perry is in Japan to play a series of dates in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.

      She and Russell Brand married in October 2010.

      Me and a few of my mates were escorted, by the R.U.C. to the county line of Fermanagh many moons ago and told not to come back. I feel your pain Russell.  ;D
