Sorry, Paris — but Japanese authorities aren’t so sure they want you tarnishing their country after your recent cocaine bust!
Paris Hilton may have thought her legal woes were over – she cut a quick deal and pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors on Sept.20 — but Japanese authorities weren’t so quick to forget about the charges! After landing at Tokyo’s airport today, Sept. 21, she was detained for six hours!
Japanese authorities told the hard-partying starlet that she would have to remain at an airport hotel until the matter was resolved; she was stuck fielding questions about her arrest and cocaine possession. Paris’ rep expressed the socialite’s displeasure with the authorities, saying, “Paris Hilton was delayed by immigration authorities at a Japanese airport this evening after arriving for business obligations planned many months earlier,” her rep said. “Paris was contractually bound to her business trip and didn’t want to let down her brands and many Asian fans. She intended on fulfilling her contract and is trying hard to do the responsible thing, but this is beyond her control. She is very disappointed by tonight’s events.”
Paris, 29, headed to Japan with her sister Nicky, 26, to launch her fall-winter collection of fashion accessories. Her hotel lock-down put a crimp in her plans, though — the event was canceled!
Prior to arriving in Japan, Paris tweeted, “On my way to my Asia to debut my Fall/Winter Collections. So excited to see all my fans. First stop – Tokyo :)”
Sorry lady, but you should probably turn that smile upside down!
