This just in...: Paris Hilton barred from entering Japan; Aretha Franklin's son assaulted in Detroit

  • Paris Hilton may have solved her drug-arrest woes stateside, but they've followed her overseas. The professional famous person was detained Tuesday while trying to enter Japan on business. Kyodo News reported that officials were troubled by her recent guilty plea in Las Vegas for cocaine possession; the law allows them to deny entry to anyone convicted of a drug offense. Her rep told reporters that Hilton was upset about the delay; she "didn't want to let down her brands and many Asian fans."
  • Aretha Franklin's son Eddie was badly beaten in an assault at a Detroit gas station Monday night, her rep told the Associated Press. Police said they were still investigating and hadn't managed to interview Eddie Franklin, who is in his 50s -- he left the hospital on his own before they arrived.

    RE: Paris Hilton and Japan customs: Good for the Japanese. It's time celebrities realize that their crimes and misdemeanors have consequences. It's also time Ms Hilton grew up. More countries should deny entry to misbehaving celebs.
