Russell Brand flew to Japan to accompany his new wife Katy Perry to her concert there. Unfortunately for the spouses, only one of them was allowed entry.
Katy is in the middle of the Asian leg of her tour and Russell came along for the ride ... until Japanese officials detailed Russell and later sent him packing!
Perry explained that it was all due to "priors from over 10 years ago!" Since Brand has been arrested many, many times, that's a logical assumption.
Russell, who's anything but shy about his past, took the incident in stride, Tweeting absurd pictures like this one while being held at the Tokyo airport.
The British comedian even Tweeted at one point that he was "Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick."
Then, moments later, he followed that up with: "Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled."
For her part, Katy wrote: "Of COURSE I ♥ my Japanese fans & the show no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings!"
These two rule.
