Katy Perry Tweets deportation

Katy Perry had to say sayonara to her husband Russell Brand when the actor was deported from Japan over the weekend.

Katy Perry Tweets deportationRussell Brand is persona non grata in Japan. Authorities deported the actor on Saturday because of some pesky legal issues left over from a decade ago -- and his wife Katy Perry is not happy about it!

Brand was in Japan to support Perry's concert tour, and she is reportedly devastated that he was kicked out of the country.

The singer tweeted:

"So... my husband just got deported from Japan. I am so. sad. I brought him all this way to show him my favorite place #tokyodreamscrushed"

"It was for priors from over 10 years ago #mamanothappy! #don'tmessw/mahman! #uwannaplaylet'sgo #don'ttakeawomansmanfromhershe'llgetshiasty!"

But Perry wanted to make sure her fans know how much she loves them, regardless. "... But of COURSE I ♥ my Japanese fans & the show #MUSTGOON no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings! #it'snotrightbutit'sokay," she tweeted.

Brand got into the Twitter act too, updating his followers on the situation as it went down.

"Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick"

"Stockholm syndrome kicking in. Just asked my guard out for (vegetarian) sushi. He giggled."

"Alcatraz! Shawshank Redemption! And now this! Ah, sweet blue bird of freedom!"

Maybe they just thought Arthur stunk?
