Russell Brand was arrested on Friday afternoon -- but seems like it only made fiancee Katy Perry love him more! The comedian, 35, was arrested for battery after shoving paparazzi out of the way at the Los Angeles International Airport. As MTV News points out, Brand has been arrested 11 times in the past -- but never for physical violence. So what pushed him over the edge this time?
Answer: the photographer was trying to take an upskirt photo of Katy Perry. And, as she tweeted later that day, Perry supports his actions: "If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me." In other words, Brand was arrested for defending Katy's honor! Swoon!
Brand was released on $20,000 bail, and Perry proceeded with her weekend plans: A bachelorette party in Vegas, thrown for her by Rihanna! The two pop superstars and a group of friends started the party in the Hard Rock Hotel pool, where Perry wore a bridal veil attached to her bikini.
Later, they showed up a Cirque de Soleil performance, where Perry and Rihanna had their picture snapped backstage. The group of about 25 then spent a few hours at a VIP table at XS nightclub, followed by a nightcap at the Sapphire strip club (where a friend bought Katy a lap dance!). Perry, never one for dull fashion, wore a sequined polka-dotted mini dress and a miniature top hat with a veil and a "B" (for "bride," presumably -- or maybe for "Brand"?).
The superstar lovebirds plan to get married at the end of the year in India. We can't wait to see what she wears -- and we wouldn't want to see what Brand does to any invading paparazzi!
Was what Russell Brand did sweet or out-of-line? Chime in below!
