London: Singer Katy Perry has come out in defence of fiance Russell Brand, who has been arrested in Los Angeles after a tussle with a photographer. She insists he was doing "his job" to protect her.

Brand was arrested after allegedly attacking a group of paparazzi as he walked through Los Angeles International Airport with Perry. He was seen pushing through a throng of photographers before seemingly shoving one paparazzo out of the way and police were called to the scene, reports contactmusic.com.
