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.

In other countries durg charges are taken seriously.
Unlike the "celebrity exempt" charges that are taken here.

Paris will do anything she wants whatever she wants because
she knows her money will always win.

Apparently she's not aware that Japan doesn't like to let people who do drugs into their country. Paul McCartney was arrested back in 1980 for having 7.7oz of weed in his luggage. He was also previously denied a Visa to Japan because of two other European convictions for weed...he was eventually deported from the country and was told he would not be welcome in Japan again (until they changed their minds a decade later for a concert in Tokyo).

She picked the WRONG country to run to after pleading guilty to cocaine possession. I bet she finds her ass deported as well.

Other countries don't want our garbage and nor should they. It's so sad that to many people in the US does.

Talent-free Paris Hilton isn't news. She's neither an actress, nor model, nor author. She's a frivolous, inconsequential celebrity, not for what she did, but for what her ancestors did. Without her inherited wealth, we wouldn't even be discussing her.

Can't they detain her on on of their smaller islands and then conveniently forget about her, forever? I'd really appreciate it

The State Department should offer her to Iranians in exchange for two guys they still hold in their custody. What do you think?

You people are such disgusting haters!

Your life is so worthless and miserable you attack people like Paris. So F'n what if she parties? You think all your favorite rappers, rockers, and others dont party?!?!

If you think they are clean you are STUPID!

Paris is rich, gorgeous, famous...
You, are ugly and fat, poor, worthless, and nobody cares if you live or die. That is why you make urself feel better by talking sh*t about people like Paris.

You make me sick. Your own parents and family dont care if you live or die. They dont care what you do, they dont care what happens to you!

Thats why you hate Paris.
