Paris Hilton

Detained in Japan

Over Cocaine Case

9/21/2010 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Paris Hilton is a captive in a Japanese hotel tonight and can't enter the country ...  after being detained at the airport for hours over her guilty plea for cocaine possession.

A source close to Paris tells us she flew to Japan on business and was questioned by immigration authorities as she got off the plane.  Immigration authorities are allowing Paris to stay at an airport hotel until the matter is resolved.  For her part, Paris hasn't decided whether to stay or leave.

Paris' rep tells TMZ, "Paris Hilton was delayed by immigration authorities at a Japanese airport this evening after arriving for business obligations planned many months earlier.  Paris was contractually bound to her business trip and didn't want to let down her brands and many Asian fans."

An employee at the Consulate-General of Japan in NYC tells TMZ ... Japan is strict about letting people into the country with recent drug convictions but these matters are handled "on a case by case basis."

Paris' rep added ... she will fulfill her contract but right now things are beyond her control.

We're told there was a conflict within the ranks of those who questioned Paris -- some of whom felt it was for show.

I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see an episode of "Locked Up Abroad" featuring Paris Hilton in the next year or so.

Being locked up in some countries like South America is like VERY "not hot". No makeup, all the girls smell bad, bad food, no TV, no iPhones, no air conditioning, bad food, no drugs, no booze, no shopping, no daddy to pull strings for her, etc.

Like, what would the princess Paris do !!! O my gawd! It would be like, you know, GROSS for her. She'd cry and nobody could hug her or anything !!!

LOL. Stupid Whores. Don't they know people with felonies charges (which Paris beat in Las Vegas) are usually not allowed to enter certain countries with investigations. Geez. Paris gets dumber by the second.

Who forgot the word "now"? Hilton's rep or the author of this article?

#18: You are a fool. It is not about national security, it is about being in another country and not expecting it to have USA/Other Country laws just because you are an American or from another country. Typical idiot statement.

Poor little, vapid, no-talent ho! All the money, in the world, and she can't find a thing worthwhile to do with herself! There are elements of American society, who live in squalor, and use crime as a means of escaping their despair. I consider them "useless", but their climb to success is a difficult, and long one. What is this witch's excuse?

What a disgrace to her family, country and to all US women…. Your family is rich and powerful and you go around acting like low class coked out stripper …. Why don`t you do something for your country instead of lowering the female population.

That's pretty sad that Japan will put their foot down to this nobody, but the United States just lets her get off easy and run around free to do it again in another State since she only needs to be arrested in Las Vegas again to be put in jail.

I guess selling yourself to a rich Japanese man for sex is considered "business" by that skank.

She is NOT a felon.
She only pled guilty to a couple of misdemeanors.
O.8 g is a very small amount. Good grief.

I'm thinking she had someone Else's purse and had to go home and get hers to be aloud into the country.
