Paris Hilton detained in Japan
It seems Paris Hilton's troubles aren't behind her yet. The heiress was denied entry into Japan on Tuesday after landing at Narita Airport a day after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge. The heiress was traveling to the country for a planned appearance to promote her fashion line, the Associated Press reports. She was questioned by the airport's immigration office and was asked to stay at an airport hotel. Her rep told E! Online, "She intended on fulfilling her contract and is trying hard to do the responsible thing, but this is beyond her control. She is very disappointed by tonight's events."
Japanese immigration authorities are legally allowed to deny entry to people convicted of drug-related offenses.This setback comes only a day after Hilton pleaded guilty to to drug possession and obstructing an officer in connection with her Las Vegas arrest last month.
We will update you on this extremely important situation as more information becomes available.
