Russell Brand and Katy Perry were swarmed by photographers as they prepared to depart LAX on Friday.

Amidst the chaos Russell punched a photographer, leading to his arrest.

Judging by Brand’s t-shirt he was clearly spoiling for a fight from the get go, whilst Katy was a picture of serenity wearing a delightful Philosophy Spring 2010 dress.

Her mini dress which had printed green lips was paired with a large straw hat. Unfortunately it doesn’t cover all of her purple coloured hair.

The rest of her look included a Chanel bag and gold heels.
