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.

You may understand more after you reach puberty. Until then look for less superficial and more deserving people to fawn over.

This is just the beginning for this young lady. Many countries including the one I am from won't let anyone in the country with a drug conviction. She plead guilty to a drug possession charge and that will limit her travelling outside the U.S. This is my humble opinion. Comnments anyone?

too bad her stupid attorney in vegas didn't tell her about this potential problem. i hope the japanese police gave her a beating.
i bet she cried during the questioning. she was likely without an in vegas where he had to tell her what to say to the judge....she is a lying cokehead..japan should beat her with a cane and then ship her back to the US.

I'm certainly not a fan of PH, but Jesus F'n Christ you people act like your own **** doesn't stink. I'd be willing to make a pretty hefty bet that several of you have used drugs at least once in your life.

Grow up.

How long does it take for Skank to grow-up??
I'm so sick of hearing her name, along with that Lohan Be-otch!!! When will law enforcement finally say enough?...But I guess so long as they have the money to pay to get a get out of jail card...the bull-sh*t will continue. If it were a everyday citizen....They would be in jail serving time...But our system is corrupt...all it takes is a few thousand dollars placed in the right hands...and "Allakhazam" you're free!!! I hope they are caught in a foreign country with dope...That has zero tolerance...and do some serious time....Enough time, that cobwebs form on their lose crotches!!!

Wonder how the Japanese would like it if US customs started detaining tourists and questioning them about the rape of the oceans by their fishing and whaleing fleets.

Was she forced to stay in a crappy airport Hilton before her bony a** was put back on the same private jet by which she arrived in Japan?

to all the haters,

you folks just need to get over this and move on. Accept the fact that your hard-working "poor" lives mean nothing to this ultra wealthy lady, many cry foul, many are just jealous if you were in her shoes you'd probally turn out just like her. spoiled rotten but very very hot! this what makes the world turn around.. accept your battles.. this chick is "above the law" has been "above the law" for some time.. you cant blame her for being born with a silver/platinum spoon.. its not her fault really.. why be so mad at her?

consider this

1) Paris is very wealthy believe it or not..she's made herself a few millions all on her own.. she can spend it as she pleases

2) Stop comparing her to lohan... afterall since her run in with the law have you seen paris behind the wheel? is it me or has she been "driven" around since her short stint in jail (beautiful mug-shot paris btw)
2a... is she a screaming psychotic lesbian after a samantha-ronson-like chick? Nope.. she has dudes in her makes her AOK with me.

3)You cant compare lilo to paris.. after all it was Paris who turned out lindsey lohan in the 1st place.. they know who threw the best parties afterall.

4) Paris is hot.. she can wear mud and still look good.. she has the "love/hate relationship with america" which is a movie deal in itself... stop hatin.. she makes more than me and you put together while taking a dump in a bathroom.

5) Fat chicks do not like paris.. needless to say their opinions are null/voided. all they have to do is see a tall skinny blonde and go ballistic.. hey ladies out there.. the jenny craig on sale holiday season is coming... save your pennies!

6) i wish her the best but again from a legal standpoint.. unless they're out "witch-hunting" Paris will not suffer a long punishment for the charge... you Pay to play is a street rule that goes far dealing with the law ( reference oj).

7) i just cant deny paris a benefit of doubt, maybe she's confused, bored, or just too wealthy.. they say you will have coke in your life if you make just too much money.. maybe she should donate to a charity or so...afterall.. i still do not think anyone will successfully boycott Hilton Hotels and force them into bankruptcy anytime too get over it guys.. no point of getting upset.. this lady is above us all.. a powerful republican family....
you can forget paris ever behaving as a "common" person.. she doesnt and wont ever know what that is..

just leave her be, hope she gets some help, i would say pray for her.. but ive been praying she drops a better sex tape

P.S I love Harvey :)

The simply did not want her there because the place already smells like sushi, and all the cats they need to cook would be following her...LOL

Seems to me that Paris Hilton already "let down her many fans and business associates" -- not to mention HERSELF -- by using illegal drugs.

Can we PLEASE stop coddling these people? They're CRIMINALS -- drunken, drug-using, whoring, no respect for society's laws or conventions, no respect for those around them -- and we're holding them up as role models and making them rich. WHY?

Why does the Court System continuously let these monied/priviledged people off, when the common folk like us would go to prison? I don't mean jail, I mean prison. If I were any of you that had gotten sentenced for the same thing she did and got 'time' - I'd sue the State by saying they were biased in giving me time behind bars and letting her off. I also thought that if you were on probation or parole, you couldn't leave the State, much less the country? What's up with that?!!!

paris could set on my face so she could get her freak-on. high on coke she'd love making it with a brotha. when she went black she hasn't come back! all these drugs are going to be the demise of her,accidently one day. she loves to expose her self to men ,she'd make a damn good or fabulous stripper in vegas or anywhere else. luv de biatch, all that cash will cash her in!

I'm tellin' ya...with the economy crunch and people losin jobs and not being able to buy those few cd's or music downloads every paycheck, nobody is cutting anyone slack. Maybe the elite should realize how goos they have it and if they are bored make some lifestyle changes that endears you to the public, especially when your business depends on their purchasing. Although Hilton's business could bomb and it would affect her lifestyle. remember that purse you bought filled her nose up with cartel cocaine. SECURE OUR BORDERS...GIVE THE LAW ENFORCEMENT EVRY SINGLE TOOL THEY NEED TO FIGHT THE BORDER WAR. I think the DEA should pop the peps who supply the Hollywood/New York actor hipster's who think their poop don't stink! Peoplw have cut me zero slack when I messed up and there's no sign of them letting up. Welcome to the party LL and Hilton.
