Comedian Russell Brand has been deported from Japan after he flew over to visit his wife, singer Katy Perry.
Brand had arrived in the country to watch Perry perform a show on the Asian leg of her California Dreams tour, but was forced to leave by Japanese authorities due to his criminal record.
Katy posted an insight into the situation via her Twitter page, writing:
"So my husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favourite place.
"It was for priors from over 10 years ago!
"But of COURSE I ♥ my Japanese fans & the show #MUSTGOON no matter the daily after shocks or husband kidnappings!"
Brand, who has been arrested 12 times, apparantly saw the funny side of his situation at Tokyo airport, posting on the social networking site:
"Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."
The Get Him to the Greek star and former heroin addict was arrested and charged with criminal damage and indecent exposure in 2001, after he stripped naked while covering the May Day protests for music channel MTV.
The charges were later dropped.
