Why Was Russell Brand Thrown Out of Japan?

Comedian Russell Brand was tossed out of Japan this weekend:

While visiting his wife Katy Perry on tour in Japan, Russell Brand was reportedly deported on Saturday. Both Katy and Russell gave a play-by-play of the situation on Twitter....
Last night, Katy tweeted the news : "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"
Apparently, her hubby was kicked out of the country for incidents stemming from over a decade ago. "It was for priors from over 10 years ago," she tweeted along with the hashtags: #mamanothappy! #don'tmessw/mahman! #uwannaplaylet'sgo #don'ttakeawomansmanfromhershe'llgetshiasty!

From ten years ago? Really? That's nonsense. How does an international celebrity like Brand get on a plane and end up in Japan, only to be thrown out for things that happened ten years ago? He needs better advisors.
