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.

No surprise about her getting arrested for coke, after all everybody have known for years that she loves to blow

She is the daughter of the scion of one of America's wealthiest and most prominent families but her father married white trash from Whittier, CA. This is a lesson that you must be careful who you choose to be the mother of your children.

This isn't news, we're just not used to other countries enforcing their immigration laws. Unlike the U.S., other countries are concerned about allowing law breakers, including illegal immigrants and suspicious people into their country.

We won't have any come here from Japan, because they don't give bail for drug possession. You stay in jail until your trial and then you go back to jail when you are found guilty. I know, it's a novel idea, but that's the way it works elsewhere.

Keep that tramp, we don't want her in the United States anymore.
Send her somewhere where she can do her coke and get all the attention she can get. Maybe the Netherlands.

I am sick of the rich getting away with criminal acts. She should be behind bars after pleading GUILTY!

("To deny entry to someone because thhey were convicted of possession of a very small amount of drugs, so small that they were not jailed is insane.")

This is truly getting funny. You can tell the age of some of the posters on here by what they write and how they write it. Japan DOES deny entry for this very's happened before. Velvet Revolver was denied entry, Gary Glitter...denied Entry, Paul & Linda McCartney...denied entry. This IS another country, they have their own set of rules they are allowed to play by...and it's a very strict set of rules at that. Don't like it...don't go there.

("What amazes me is that she got off without having to take any manatory drug testing.") You don't know that she didn't have to have drug testing...that could very well by why she plead guilty and admitted it was hers.
