There's a good reason Russell Brand wasn't cheering on wife Katy Perry as she performed in Japan over the weekend—he was too busy getting kicked out of the country.
"So… my husband just got deported from Japan," the singer, who is currently touring Asia, wrote on Twitter on May 22. "I am so sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favorite place #tokyodreamscrushed."
Though Perry added, "It was for priors from over 10 years ago!" she didn't specify what Brand's offenses were, according to Billboard.
Meanwhile, Brand kept his sense of humor about the situation.
"Planning escape from Japanese custody," he tweeted. "It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."
While Perry may have been upset about Brand's deportation, she didn't let it affect her performance. "But of COURSE I ♥ my Japanese fans & the show #MUSTGOON no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings! #it'snotrightbutit'sokay," she wrote. Then, referring to Brand's Twitter handle, she added, "#FREE@RUSTYROCKETS! RT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Some people don't know how to act when they get too far away from mama. You can't take 'em anywhere and be proud, they'll act a fool wherever they go.
#Mustgoon? I don't even know what a mustgoon is. Why would I want to pound one?
bad comment on the chopsticks douch3bag. You got a karate chop on the neck back to the US. "Cha!"
I am of the opposite opinion of the majority of these comments. I think Mr. Brand is hilarious, and that Katy Perry's music is terrible, and unoriginal. Also, is being a comedian not "doing something for other people"? I mean, sure you make money, but I think making people laugh is one of the most important things you can do for them.
i saw a pic from a mag with russell brand makin with justin bieber.dis man is a british firstname.lastname@example.org hair-dresser is g@y with long ugly blonde mohaoke.
Yeeesh!...that guy gives me the heebee jeebees!
Wow Ren...you are not even a bit humble are you? I wonder how rich and smart we have to be to degrade normal folks like you just did. but im a firm believer in what goes up must come down...one of these days even the most stubborn and arrogant people will learn some humility.
I'm so full of humility i'm the most awesomely humble person on here.
The arrogant was Fressie42, pay attention.
No wonder she kissed a girl.
Sounds rather stupid on their part. Don't they kind of need celebrity tourism right now?
If you guys hate him so much, why did you bother to select an article about him, then take the time to comment? I think he's pretty funny, but it's all a matter of personal preferences. Your lives must be pretty lame if all you have to get up in arms about is an actor you claim not to like. Grow up.
What a loser... Katy deserves better !
I need a life. Have been reading idiotic comments from idiots & now have become one.
Who else wants to
get a $829 iPad2 for $117.37. Or a brand new i7 macbook pro worth $1799.00 for under $200? Forget about retail stores with thei

Alright! A brand new site to steal my credit info and give my computer electro-gonorrhea, sign me up!
I wish we could deport all the unfunny, annoying celebrities from THIS country!
It's refreshing to know that a gov't enforces it's consequences on anyone w/o prejudice or special treatment due to status. Unlike the US whereLindsay Crackhead Lohan & Paris Crybaby Hilton pretty much both spat on the the California judicial system.
she obviously prefers personality over looks. brand looks like the missing link. hes a lucky man
He can shine my knob.
One can only hope they deport him from America next....his boorish behavior is annoying and imo he is not funny on even the lowest level. How they picked him to reprise Dudley Moore's "Arthur" os beyond me. He is not fit to shine Dudley Moore's shoes (and yes I know Moore is dead).
Could we please deport him from America, too?
I love me some MUSTGOON!
I bagged 2 last season and I'm still enjoying the MUSTGOON-jalepeno-cheese sausage to this day!
Russell Brand is an idiot and he isn't funny at all. Katy Perry on the other hand...I would go bananas on that rump-shaker.
Who is this drag queen? One of Lady Gagas cronies?
Haters. I b git awl my newb on twippa.
Arabs throw acid on womens faces for not wearing a veil.
They obviously get their hair done at the same place with the same dyes.
Imagine those 2 dark black hairy sets of genitals grinding together
The bigger issue is that this piece of "news" was written entirely based on Tweets. Since when does that qualify as in depth journalism. Shame on CNN for not trying to get information to report on the facts of the situation.
@amazing- thats a very good point!
Wow – stellar reporting! So now we are getting all of our information from Twitter? Journalism at it's finest! Way to go above and beyond in your new coverage
He couldve taken care of the drunken/disorderlies from before though.
He's not even funny!
They dont want his $$$ or tourism? Huh....ok
He is hilarious! Katy Perry is HOT!
Never heard of him till I read this.
All you people who call "jealousy" because people don't like Russell Brand: I have a question for you. Do you have zero criticism for every successful entertainer in history? Because if you don't like some actor, singer, comedian, writer, etc. with a successful career does that mean you're "jealous" of them? I mean, is there no legitimate criticism to be had of anybody who also happens to be successful? Here's your way of thinking in a nutshell- You have to have at least as much money in your bank account as anybody you want to bad mouth or else it's jealousy. Looks kind of stupid when it's put like that doesn't it? But that's what you're saying.
At least someone here has their head on straight.
I didn't even know she was married to that dude. Wow your telling me I had a chance with her. If she would marry that dude she would marry anybody lol
Katie Perry. I'd hit it
I cannot stand Katy Perry.
But on the other hand, Russell Brand is hilarious.
I was a fan of Katy Perry until she chose to wear something ridiculously inappropriate during her song with L
Shut up Tim! How's that for offending a majority (soon to become a minority)?
xfd at all the butthurt basement dwellers in this thread.
C'mon people , people get deported allthe time for one reason or the other. you guys claim he has no talent? please compare your bank account with his and shut up.
I feel sorry for people like you who measure everything in terms of the dollars attached. I mean, literally, a calculator can do that.
My wife is hotter than she is so Im good, thanks
Can I compare bank accounts with you? I bet my bottom dollar that it's more than yours. I'll be the whole stack that I really don't give a crap if he makes more than me. Willing to take that bet? No? The STFU/STFD and let people air their opinion. It is America after all.
They'll be split up in less than 2 years...guaranteed. They're using each other for their careers. Sad and transparent...ex-junkie with the hook-up for as long as he can hang. L.A. fabulous.
So they saw Arthur too. . .
What is a goddess like her doing with that missing link of a thing? Sad really that people in celebrity feel the need to marry "on the status"
So many haters
I want her brown ring around the speaker.
Although I do have to raise my glass to his reference of George Bush as a retarded cowboy!
I raise my glass of sake to you RB! Now back to Hollyweird with you!
So first of all, is anybody REALLY that shocked that he could get deported? That's kind of like being shocked that the cat fell in the acquarium. I mean sure, it's not likely any single time, but was bound to happen eventually, and he's probably the first one to agree with that. Second, wouldn't it be refreshing for at least one of them to actually tweet what they were really thinking. Yeah, I'm sure those tweets really reflect it all. Where's Gary Busey when you really need him?
Busey. heh heh
Really, Ren? I'm a Nuclear Physicist. My I.Q. would make you cry. My bank account would make you kill yourself. And that we've established that I am also funny, you can consider yourself...retarded.
Sure, you are so smart you need to publicize it. Inferiority complex? And no sir, your bank account won't impress me because to me money is irrelevant. You sir, with that 'high IQ' of yours should know better.
Smart nuclear physicists won't base their opinions on assumptions. You don't have a clue who I am and how much I earn and you are already assuming you are smarter and wealthier than me. For this country's sake, I hope you are unemployed.
you are NOT fvnni.
You 2 should kill yourselves for having arguments over the internet....
you might be smart and have the cash flow but I bet you call rosie palm and her five friends every night..
Well I really hope the two do not repoduce.
Him for the insensitive racist remarks
"It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."
her for being that ignorant.
And if anyone thinks I am wrong. Look what happened to Godfrey and 50 cent a couple of months ago.
Ever heard of a joke??? Dang get the chopstick out your a$$ and lighten up!!! Can't even make jokes anymore without people getting p p harded! Seriously!!!
RB is smarter and funnier than all the people that criticize him on this block (together).
He's certainly smarter than you. No doubt about that.
Maybe maybe not, but based on your response we are both almost certainly smarter than you. I state 'almost certainly' because you could be Stephen Hawking FWIK. Peace.
Smart people don't let other people's opinion ruin their day. Smart people also don't have to brag about being smart for confirmation. Seems like you haven't met many smart people.
I hope they never reproduce.
Now yall dont need to be saying negative things You might be offending someone. You might be hurting the feelings of a minority. One of his fans might be black or gay or fat. We dont need to be offending people. They might think we are prejudiced, now.
Could have been an old drug beef. I think he's very talented and funny. I think I can forgive him for the "Arthur" redux.
Whats the big deal nobody gets deported unless they comitted a crime or is a terrorist threat big deal
Not to many years ago you could be turned back at the border when trying to enter the US if you were gay. You still can for minor drug use offenses among other things. But come on in if you have a visa for flight school training. You know the reference.
We don't want this flamer here as well.
LOL @ some of these comments
Honorable LOL mention: Superhiro Mark Silvers and Norman (nomoregreasyhaireduntalentedbrits). ROTFL!
"Talentless"? Who are you and what have you achieved? I guess when you can fill arenas with tens of thousands of fans then maybe your opinion might count for something.
Just because you sell some records and have suckers buy tickets to see you prance around on stage in your underwear singing out of key, that does not make you talented. Milli Vanilli sold out arenas and sold millions of records.
What a stupid thing to say. The guy is a worthless hack and you're an idiot to stick up for him.
you buy her music? your choice...it's a free country to dump on anyone you want. what do you care?
She is much too cool and beautiful for an idiot like RB
This guy was awsome as the voice of r2d2 in the new stars war movies
Anybody seen my gloves
Probably next yo your Heisman.
seriously, haha – I have never seen a movie starring Russell, but he is hilarious when I see him on talk shows being interviewed...anyway, OJ made my morning rofl
why? you pattin out doookieBurgers for you and your butt buddies?
A talentless man with a talentless lady - kick them both out
It was for doing that atrocious movie Arthur-theres a movemnt now to get him kicked out of the US-sign up now- nomoregreasyhaireduntalentedbrits.com
I bet he pooped his pants.
as a normal person I would be mortified to be deported from anywhere – yet celebs treat this as another press op....rather scewed!
I've been deported from France. No biggie. Just had to pay full fare home.
You've never been in foreign country in your life.
So many jeelous losser babies here
Dude you can't spell. Stop writing. Become hermit.
This coming from someone who cannot complete a sentence.
Jealous of a junkie etc...not. Be jealous of someone who does something for other people, with no publicity.
Holy $#!+!!! What a great way to start the day; with a great laugh at a moron's expense. This should be a on T-shirt- "I'm a jeelous losser. I hayt ritch peepole."
I wonder if he went to Iran or North Korea if they would keep him or kick him out (I say they would drop him like a bad transmission).
Now how can we keep him out of the US? Let him move to Amsterdam, I say. -Art
Is Amsterdam far enough away?
Seriously, is your name really Art Vandolaye?
Im pretty sure it is, thats like a rule on here that you use your real name.
I wish we could find out what he did. It may be a publicity stunt though.
Well, of course they allowed in Katy Perry. She's the queen of karaoke!
THAT comment just totally made my day! :-D
They probably saw one of his films. They're offensive enough to warrant deportation.
He was hilarious in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and his character was interesting enough to give him his own movie, Get Him to the Greek, which was seriously awesome. P. Diddy and Jonah Hill obviously co-starred with him so he wasn't alone, but the only 2 movies I've seen him in were great. In comedy, you don't have to be able to perform a tearjerking emotional scene or represent any significant character or role to be considered talented. All you have to do is make your audience laugh, and those 2 movies did it for me.
I'm not dumb enough to see any movie called Arthur. Whether it's about the Arthur cartoon, a remake of a movie I've seen a million remakes of, or a biography of President Chester A. Arthur. Greedy guy has rich relative, rich relative makes greedy guy jump through hoops to get money, hilarity ensues. Been there, done that. If you didn't know better, lesson learned now.
You consider Get Him to the Greek to be "seriously awesome"? That comment just ruined my fantastic monday.
Gonna have to agree with Mr. Stover.
Boo hoo. Just pet the furry wall and get over it.
Another "like" for Mr. Candy Guy's post.
Lmao!! It must be pretty sad when one gets kicked out of a country. One must be a real loser that not even a country wants you in it.
I don't know that it's sad per se. He probably had the time of his life 10 years ago when he acquired the priors. Would you risk exile from a country you don't live for a chance to party like a rock star? I would, but I'm not repressed.
can't stand that dude! Don't know why people find him funnyyyy
Well, on the upside, he has a lot less risk of getting cancer now.
Could not have happened to a better D-bag...my only wish is that the deportation process was as "physically abusive" as a deportation could possibly be (oh, he fell down the steps...or he slipped in the shower).
All of the bloody people that don't like me are what makes me famous. Thanks Hater.
