Japan doesn’t want Paris either

Paris Hilton boarding a private jet in L.A. yesterday

Paris Hilton is currently being detained at a hotel in Japan because immigration authorities don’t want to let her into the country. I don’t know, something about them not liking visitors currently on probation for cocaine possession. From TMZ:

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.

A business trip? Is the pink bag with her face on it where she keeps all of her important documents? “Jeeves, can you do me a favor and get the Q1 inflation-adjusted revenue numbers from the Toyota licensing deal? I think they’re in the pink bag with my face on it.”
