British actor and comedian Russell Brand had been deported from Tokyo's Narita Airport, last weekend, say reports.
Brand’s wife Katy Perry, who was on a concert tour, told Reuters that the star of the movie Arthur had been denied entry by the emigration department at the airport.
So ... my husband just got deported from Japan. I am so.sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favorite place., Perry wrote in a Twitter message on Saturday.
The 35-year-old funnyman—who married singer Perry last year, has encountered heroin addiction and been arrested 12 times, most recently for an alleged attack on the paparazzi at a Los Angeles airport in 2010.
Perry in another Twitter message said that Brand was deported for 10 years before criminal cases.
Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick, Brand wrote on his Twitter page. Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled.
Perry continued her tour in Japan. Brand and Perry were married in October and they are one of Hollywood's most high profile couples.
