Japan just says no to Paris Hilton and her drug conviction

September 22, 2010 |  9:58 am


Paris-hilton-narita2 Paris Hilton is on her way home from Japan after being denied entry because of her guilty pleas to drug-possession charges in Las Vegas on Monday. Hilton was questioned for about six hours over two days, an immigration official said.

"About to take off. Going home now," she tweeted just after midnight Los Angeles time. "So dissappointed to miss my fans in Asia. I promise to come back soon. I love you all! Love Paris xoxo."

Hilton's rep said the socialite was "forced to postpone" a business tour through Asia that included stops in Tokyo, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur. Paris never made it out of Narita, Japan, where she spent the night in an airport hotel. She was supposed to appear Wednesday at a fashion show in Tokyo's trendy Roppongi district, but the event was canceled.

Paris and her sister, Nicky Hilton, had arrived on a chartered jet that left the U.S. on Monday.
