The 26-year-old singer Katy Perry had just tweeted how “sad” she was after Russell Brand, her husband, was deported by Japanese authorities. But only a few hours later, she arrived to Tokyo wearing a anything-but-melancholy outfit that made many heads turn.

She showed up at Tokyo train station wearing a white checked suspender skirt, black stockings and platform heels, sporting a “look what you’ve missed, Russell” attitude. Fans crowded around, and Katy chatted with them and signed autographs.

Russell had arrived with her wife for her Japanese show of “California Dreams” tour. He was deported because of his criminal record.

Katy then wrote on her Twitter account: ‘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.'

She campaigned to her fans to ask for her husband release: ‘#FREE@RUSTYROCKETS! RT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’, but soon seemed to accept the situation: 'But of COURSE I ♥ my Japanese fans & the show #MUSTGOON no matter the daily aftershocks or husband kidnappings! #it'snotrightbutit'sokay,' she twitted.

Russell himself had earlier twitted a message, trying to make fun of the situation while being held in custody at Tokyo airport: ‘Planning escape from Japanese custody. It's bloody hard to dig a tunnel with a chopstick.’

Russell Brand, a former self-confessed heroin addict, but also a famous actor and comedian, has been arrested 12 times. He was charged with criminal damage and indecent exposure when he took off his clothes during a protest coverage for MTV. He was also held once for attacking a photographer that was trying to take pictures of Katy Perry. [DailyMail]
