Russell Brand has been deported from Japan where his wife Katy Perry is touring.

Perry took to social networking site Twitter and announced: “My husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favourite place #tokyodreamscrushed.”

She explained his deportation was a result of “priors from over 10 years.”

Russell is known for his wild and crazy drug past which includes several run-ins with the law - he was arrested just last September after allegedly attacking a paparazzo!

Russell dished on the experience via Twitter too: “Planning escape from Japanese custody. It’s bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick.”

Should we feel sorry for him?
