Paris Hilton is apparently not welcome in the Land of the Rising Sun. She was turned away when she attempted to visit Japan because of her recent conviction for cocaine possession and had to fly back to the United States, New York Criminal Lawyers have learned.
“Paris is very disappointed and fought hard to keep her business commitments and see her fans, but she is forced to postpone her commitments in Asia,” her representative said to a Bronx Criminal Lawyer. “Paris understands and respects the rules and laws of the immigration authorities in Japan and fully wishes to cooperate with them. Paris looks forward to returning in the future to a country she loves and has been coming to for the past 10 years.”
Hilton had been detained and questioned by immigration officials for hours when she tried to enter Japan. She recently pleaded guilty to misdemeanor cocaine possession and obstructing a police officer. A motorcycle cop caught her and her boyfriend in Los Vegas when the officer smelled marijuana coming from the car. Hilton was found to be carrying cocaine at that point, as well.
