We heard yesterday that PARIS HILTON was following up her guilty plea for cocaine possession with a trip to Asia to promote her clothing line. Bad move.
Paris touched down in Tokyo yesterday and never got out of the airport. In other words, the Japanese REFUSED TO LET HER INTO THE COUNTRY.
It turns out that anyone who has a suspended jail sentence . . . like Paris . . . isn’t allowed into Japan except for, quote, “special reasons.”
Last we heard, Paris was chilling at an airport hotel, UNDER GUARD, while her people try to work things out with the authorities. If this doesn’t get settled, she might just have to fly back to the States.
(–Even though she’s being guarded, Paris isn’t under arrest. This is supposedly just standard operating procedure in immigration cases.)
An event to unveil her Fall / Winter 2010 collection of handbags, watches and other accessories has already been canceled.
Her rep says, “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.”
Meanwhile, a so-called “source” says Paris is, “beyond upset” and “devastated” over this.
