“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.”

Well then she should really do the responsible thing and stop using drugs. She's been caught so many times now it's obvious she doesn't think society's rules apply to her.

Keep her out of Japan. Not a great loss for us but at least it might hurt her financially.

She . . . . is trying hard to do the responsible thing

You could have fooled me !!! . . . And here I was thinking, she's only working and raking the money in just to support her DRUG habit !

Paris better be careful. Thank God she wasn't in Kuala Lampur with the coke.

Moral of the story: know beforehand the country/place you are visiting. By the way, did Narita immigration found drug or drug-like substance in her possession? no, then four hours of questioning seems too long.

holed-up huh, "one night in narita!"

but this is beyond her control.

This comes from her spokesperson but it shows how oblivious and self-centered Hilton's thinking is. How dare immigration question me! All I did was get arrested for cocaine possession.

One can only worry about the people in her travel group if and when they get to Malaysia and immigration finds some drugs. Someone in that group will take the fall for her - and die.

I would love for these countries to all not let her in. This is the only way she will learn because the US laws aren't teaching her anything. She cried when she went to jail, said she changed and yet, she's still the coke head princess she always was. Ban her from being able to attend shows, openings, business meetings... She'll only learn that way.

Some, I rather hope she does get busted is some place like Malaysia or Indonesia where she might not be able to get out of flashing some cash at the problem. I am sure some Muslim country would LOVE to make an example out of her. Bout time too!

but this is beyond her control.

This is just calculated to have her avoid being sued for breach of contract. She probably knew before she bought the tickets that there was a high likelihood of not making it past immigration. But she has to at least make a showing that she tried complying with her contract. The cops are just so happy to have a cute celebrity in their grasp that they will detain her for as long as possible.

Good--obviously the threat of jail time and rehab (not that she'd ever be forced to even come close to serving out any sentence in either place) holds no weight with her, so deny her the ability to make money off her financial interests here--that should get her attention, guaranteed. For once, the gears of mindless bureaucracy get it right.

It's strange that the government doesn't inform Hilton and her manager before they left the U.S. that she is personna on grata in Japan. What's the point of waiting until she arrives? The airport has a list of each day's VIP arrivals, and a flight plan has to be filed for a private jet, so why not inform Hilton in advance and save her the trip?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I think they were informed of the likely hood of her being refused entry. As one person said the trip might be to make an appearance to show she tried to uphold her end of the contracts.

From what I can gather the problem seems to be that her sentence is a suspended one and thus falls into a legal gray-area.

Tokyo was the first stop on Hilton’s planned Asia tour, during which she planned to visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and open a new retail store in Jakarta, Indonesia.

OH Please let her get to KL with some of her habit and then we can all stop hearing about this bubble headed spoiled brat. Let her be made an example of that money won't let you get away with breaking laws. Please KL. End our misery.

No. She's guilty. The only gray area is whether she will be a danger to Japan with her crazy criminal ways. She WAS headed to Roppongi, so it doesn't look good. Haha.

They are doing her a favor. She has friends in Malaysia with big big boats, but she is a target now. She should give it a rest.

Speaking of arrest, I have L. Lohan as up for arrest BEFORE Paris Hilton in a little contest I have going, so Paris Hilton has to appear to stay clean at LEAST until LLohan gets arrested again, which should not be too long.

I agree with the immigration in Japan. Why should Paris get special treatment at all? She is just another stupid rich idiot with no brains at all. Japan already has a lot of idiots in their country, why should Japan let more idiots come. Paris should have been directed to get back onto her plain to go home.

I sure hope this was a top luxury hotel or else it could be considered 'cruel and unusual' punishment for her to stay in anything less.

Pestronika -- agree. I am no Paris fan, but I'd wager that there are more than a few oridinary people who have been granted entry to Japan who have a pot or coke bust on their record. They just conveniently forgot about them when filling out the immigration questionnaire, and, since they are not celebrities, no one was any the wiser. Also, if I am not mistaken, Stallone was allowed in not too long ago, even though he got busted for HGH in Australia.

What a ditz! While its not all actually her fault as to what the laws are pertaining to Narcotics and other paraphernalia internationally, Paris should have made inquiries as to what conduct and local laws are pertaining to drugs. Especially, having a suspended sentence traveling to Japan: a country that lumps all paraphernalia under one umbrella. That was a gimme. Japan is not the US, no Free rides baby!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I hope she's kept out, personally, but given her money and celebrity status here she could well be let in today. And if she got caught here with drugs later she would just get the boot. I don't wish, as some people above have said, that she gets caught with drugs in Malaysia or somewhere else -- that would probably mean the death penalty, but I do hope she is denied to more and more places until she learns that she cannot flaunt society's conventions and constantly get away with it. Won't mean much if anything to her money-wise, but I'm sure she doesn't like the rejection.

Moral to the Story is: Does she have a serious drug problem ? Yes/No- Every country that you visit will ask you during customs and immigration. 1) have you been convicted of a crime ? Yes/No 2) Have you been convicted of drug charges ? Yes/No

If you circle "Yes" you have to write a short paragraph in the back. Paris & entourage didn't figure it out they need to explain in detail her criminal charges in America. And that it will "inconvenience" a couple of hours. Because the Japanese immigration really want to know if she will export/import drugs in their country. Does she have a drug problem ?

Some " Entertainment " Personalities do have serious drug addictions and die from that !!!! Japan is just taking " precaution " in preventing a media blitz if she overdoses in japan or commit a crime.

3 possibilites 1) she has a drug problem 2) she's desperate for media attention 3) she's an idiot for hiding coke for someone else

She needs to get her luggage triple searched I tired of going through narita and other airports being searched for nothing !!!!!

No, common-and-garden undesirables get held at the privately run Narita detention centre, not a hotel, and have to pay 4 star hotel rates for the privelege. Happened to a friend of mine. After 2 days' detention he was relieved of $500 for the privelege and stuck, penniless on a plane to Seoul, where he was promptly detained.

I wish they would just stick her on a plane to Kuala Lumpur.

You people have to LEARN that Paris Hilton could commit second-degree murder and she would NEVER spend a day in jail for it. There are TWO standards here. One for the blue bloods and the other for us. Laws and rules are for us. I tell you frankly, I am so freaking tired of these blue bloods flaunting the fact that they will NEVER have to spend YEARS or DAYS behind the bars for crimes that other people would spend YEARS upon YEARS for. Geez, I hope that the Japanese police lock her away for this immigration CRIME. But, watch, NOTHING will happen to her. NOTHING.

i believe pauls little thingy let to several weeks detention before getting the boot, paris seems to be getting special treatment imo.

@Pestronika

She is different from the average junkie celeb. Being on drugs is common, sadly. But others do it at home, try to get cure, or they seem. She considers herself above the laws, in any country. And so far that worked. A few months ago, her jet landed in a French airport carrying some dope. If an unknown citizen of Thailand/Ukraine/etc arrives in the ferry from Morocco with the same amount of dope in his car, he waits months in jail. Then a beginner lawyer takes 4 hours and a part-time translator plead his case, that is lost in advance. He pays a fine and the fees for the confiscated car (or he lets the car as that's cheaper) and he has to leave the country and is on the Interpol list of convicted drug dealer for all his life, he shouldn't count on getting even a tourist visa in European Union, US, etc, any time soon, he will never get jobs as civil servant, in army, army supply industry, etc. He is another young man that stupidly messed his life. That's the normal price of drug smuggling. And your parents and teachers warned you. The Hilton brat called super-lawyer, paid a fine, flew away 3 hours later, as white as premium cocaine. And she'll be back in Paris at the next fashion show, with dope in her hideous hand-bag, as usual.

That happened what ? 20 times ? That's disgusting.

And when, for a change, she is treated as the criminal she is, we have to read : "She is very disappointed by tonight’s events." We aren't. This time, we enjoy the show.

“We have no legal basis to restrict her from traveling throughout the United States or throughout the world,” Clark County District Attorney David Roger said.

But if she had received due justice from the beginning in the U.S then she would probably have been in jail right now along with all the everyday 'non-Hilton family' citizens and she would not be travelling anywhere.

“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.”

The responsible thing would be to stop getting busted for drug offences. Beyond her control ? The law in Japan states clearly that it does not allow drug offenders in the country.

Not indiscriminate at all. The law in Japan clearly states that any national with previous drugs offences will not be permitted a visa to enter Japan. In fact, Hilton has (yet again) received preferential treatment, as anyone else would have been deported the same day and not have been put up in a hotel in Narita (I wonder which hotel she is staying in....)

@yourock, yes I know Americans don't care about drug users in the U.S. since drug use is part of every day life. It's obvious the Japanese government cares about the influence of drug users especially those with celebrity status.

yeah. Okinawa. I was not going to count that. Lin Lo gets a mulligan on this one because the bench warrant had been issued before I thought of the little race idea. We kind of knew that was coming.

Now I want to be clear: The next one to be ARRESTED takes the prize. Li Lo is supposed to be all contrite and she has been devastated professionally, but she is young and stupid. Paris is much less contrite, and has tons of money and other things to do, but people are gunning for her, she travels a lot, and has lots of opportunities for arrest by people who cannot be quickly bought off.

Each one has strong points and weak points. I was thinking that things would not heat up until about Valentine's Day, but maybe I am giving both of them too much credit.

Japanese love detaining foreigners. The little man who has a junky job must have loved it. She had so little of the drug that it wasn't even a felony in the US. I would say that nearly 90% of Americans at one point in their life have done drugs. Would immigration bar all of them for a simple rule of passage? If so, Japan should consider America an ex friend. Even Bill Clinton had admitted to smoking pot. So Bill better stay out of Japan.

Excuse me if this sounds a little rude, but what a pile of crap. If you drop the law that says no drug offenders allowed (the one that, in your words, detained a foreigner) you open your doors to drug dealers and drug couriers bringing smack and crack into your country. Hilton WAS charged with a felony in the U.S. That means a drugs offence. Bill Clinton admitted to smoking pot but unlike Hilton, was never caught with it or arrested.

This just shows the stupid war on drugs is ridiculous. Let's legalize drugs and get tax from it. This will immediately destroy the drug dealers business and bring money to the State. Freedom is also freedom to make your own mistakes. In countries where possession of drugs is decriminalized, there hasn't been an increase in the number of drug addicts, quite the contrary.

Hillary Clinton is being updated continuously on this dire situation which will obviously strain bi-lateral relations between Japan and U.S. more than the Futenma issue, rising Yen, etc could ever do.

However, Hillary is very busy now with Middle East Peace negotiations (you go girl!) so she has requested that her husband, you know, Bill Clinton (former President of U.S. before all the crap happened in this century) fly immediately to Narita and request Paris be released for humanitarian reasons.

He will also bring along Jimmy Carter who just happens to be one of Paris Hilton's top Twitter followers.

Bill and Jimmy wanted former President Bush (not the second one.... noone wants him around) Bush Sr. to also come along. However, the last time he came to Japan he vomited on the Prime Minister after eating some sushi. He is still a little embarassed by that incident and has not reimbursed the Japan Gov't for the dry cleaning bill.

The immigration officials are still "questioning" Paris??? About what? How much is there to explain about her? She is RICH! Set her free! Oh, maybe those officials are waiting for the secret money to be wired to their personal bank accounts. They are also stalling to force Paris to give them a few of her promotional handbags and watches for their wives.

Pretty easy to resolve. Immigration officials should give her a temporary visa w/ strong restrictions. She can only conduct her business as scheduled, then leave. After she has no legal clouds such as a legal probation, the regular visa can be reinstated.

My point is, Northlondon - if Japan can welcome ex-Terrorists into the joint - why not allow a kid who likes to smoke joints?

Most countries in the world, like it or not, have a law on the books prohibiting people who have been convicted of crimes - no matter how petty - from entering.

Likewise, most countries in the world have a procedure for clearing one's name - which allows people who have been convicted of a crime in the past to prove they do not represent a danger to the country they are entering.

You don't have to like it, but you should accept that this is not a case of Japan taking a hard line on recreational drug use, but rather a case of Japan doing what every other country in the world routinely does on an everyday basis.

Hilton’s arrest last month in Las Vegas, when an officer found a small amount of cocaine in her purse. She pleaded guilty Monday to drug possession and obstructing an officer and was placed on informal probation for one year.

Hilton’s sentence also requires her to complete a drug program, pay a $2,000 fine and serve 200 hours of community service.

I blame the soft treatment of her in the U.S for all this. How can you allow someone who has to complete 200 hours of community service, complete a drugs programme, and be on informal probation for a year, to then have fun jet-setting around the world ?

What message would that send to the general Japanese population "if your a Japanese "Talento" or regular citizen then watch out but if your a foreign spoiled rich brat well, no problem, welcome".

And one more thing concerning Japan's stance on drugs, I have lived here for more than 19 years and I have yet to see in any major Japanese city with large areas that are virtually no go zones due to drug dealers ruling the streets like I have seen in Just about every major city in North America, So maybe they are doing something right.

@Sarge "She's not a drug addict"

Just as someone with a hip flask is not necessarily an alcoholic, however PH has shown a definite pattern of drug usage, just where that turns into what could be called an addiction, I'm not sure, but the pattern is undeniably there.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The 'PH-level' must be a bit sour

0 ( +0 / -0 )

@Sarge: "She's not a drug addict"

The definition of Addiction: the condition of being abnormally dependent on some habit, esp compulsive dependency on narcotic drugs.

PH has shown that she cannot stop taking drugs (and getting caught) so that would put her definitely in the category of addict.

Do people think (or believe) that she is just unlucky to get caught on the few occasions she is just taking these drugs?

Most research has shown that for every time users and addicts have been caught, there have been hundreds of occasions they did not get caught.

So you can rest assured that PH has a "substance abuse" problem which is rich talk for ADDICTION!

And @ MistWizard "She paid her dues according to the legal system of the country she was accused. "

To my knowledge she has not "paid her dues" seeing she has still not completed her sentence.

BTW, You do know that upon entering most countries (even the USA) if you answer the questionnaire given to you honestly and check the "yes" box to the question "have you ever been arrested" there is a good chance you will not be admitted!

You have confused "treated fairly" with "treated the same". She was not treated fairly and in fact, not treated the same either. If you had a previous drug conviction in the U.S. how would Japanese immigration authorities know? You seriously going to put that on your disembarkment card?

noirgaijin said: Um, can you remind us of what dues she paid?

More importantly, this changes the game drastically for the Paris vs. LiLo drug arrest sweepstakes.

Paris not only cancelled Japan, but apparently Malaysia too. I am thinking that she can see that now that Japan has taken a stand, she had better let things cool off. Maybe, faced with huge costs to her business interests, she can figure out that drugs and drug users are not cool.

Maybe Paris has hit rock bottom! Which means that LiLo is set to DEFINITELY be the first of the pair to be arrested. After her latest movie gets cancelled because of her failed drug test, she will spiral down until she gets arrested again.

This was a good thing for Paris. Japan did her a big favor.

You would surprised as to what is now shared in this day and age, they may not know when they let you in BUT if they find out before you leave watch out the penalty for false declaration is much worse than just being refused entry.

In the case of the USA making such a false claim could get you 5 years in prison I would suspect it would be about the same in Japan.

So do so at your own risk and I would also suspect that afterwards you would be on an Interpol watch list.

What does Paris do?

Well, she is a person. Most of the Hilton fortune was dedicated to charity in 2007, so she is a poor little rich girl who stands to get, well, not as much from her parents as she might have thought. At one point it looked like about 200 million dollars. Now it looks like only a few million. That is ok because she has prepared her own companies and career, such as it is.

She started working as a model at 19, then did some movies and TV. She has her own record label and is apparently authoring books.

Her designer brand is used by S. Thavasa for bags and jewelry for Amazon? Six perfumes, a line of hair extensions, shoes, clothes, nightclubs. All pay her licensing fees to use her name and personage.

Then she owns real estate in at least three places in the US.

And she still does ads.

She is very well connected and seems to be generally liked by people who know her personally.

So. Yeah. She is a real ditz who can't tie her shoes. Tell me, what do you look forward to when you get up in the morning? She was getting ready to take off from Narita in her own jet. She is a self made millionaire who is pleasant, opinionated, and independent. I am not really impressed with any of that, but I am impressed that she has put some things together to take care of herself. People who just want to run her down need to take a serious look at their own life.

Sure. She has plenty of problems. Don't we all? She apparently has some kind of drug problem and did not graduate from high school (GED only). Somehow, I don't think she spends as much time making excuses for herself as the average loser does.

I am ambivalent. I would take her out to Denny's for coffee and a chat. I would not give Martha Stewart or Kathy Lee the time of day.

Having read through the 200 plus comments on this little non-story, I am surprised that nobody has mentioned her contractual obligation. I mean, she did. So did her publicist. Several times, in fact.

Curse my business mind, but I can't help wondering what the penalty clause was for this particular contractual obligation. Was it significant?

Was this trip all a ruse? Ms. Hilton and her lawyers/business advisors must have known that the possibilty of being let into Japan, or Malaysia, for that matter, would be pretty slim over the next few months, or even years, considering her recent conviction in Las Vegas. But cancelling the scheduled tour from her end would likely mean a significant financial penalty. Jumping on her private plane and heading out, however, at least has a veneer of attempting to uphold her side of the bargain, as if Japanese Immigration was some kind of force majeure which would release her from her contract.

Don't get me wrong, I think the lawyers for the other side are not so gullible and she will be sued anyway. But Ms. Hilton's side will no doubt introduce this little foray as a mitigating circumstance, aka the "At least I tried" defense.

(Oh dear. I can't believe I just commented on something Paris Hilton did.)

Zenny. Have a look at her bio on Wiki. It is pretty interesting. She has her sister Nicky, and then two brothers, the youngest of whom is 16. From what I can tell, and people will disagree, I am sure, she is taking responsibility for the welfare of the family.

She has created a lot of wealth, possibly more than her father, who has had access to about all the capital he could ever have wanted. She has made a pretty good corporate presence out of just about nothing, and she never graduated from high school.

Someday she will be an old spinster with a lot of nieces and nephews and a lot of stories to tell. This is how it works. It is not really how the Kennedys built their dynasty, but it is not too different. She is a modern day Tallulah Bankhead. Before your time? Read up on her. "Cocaine habit-forming? Of course not. I ought to know. I've been using it for years. " Outrageous!

Sarge, maybe Paris should schedule a stop to Pyonyang just for fun.

Haha. What you people do not realize is that you are all playing a role that makes it possible for her to play hers. If there were not a Paris Hilton, someone would have to invent her.

I think she is hot and lots of people jealous. Why didn't she sleep on her private plane? So technically they really did let her stay.

Paris is very disappointed and fought hard to keep her business commitments and see her fans

She has FANS?

When facts become a rant, its just more proof that people envy or desire Paris Hilton.

"people envy or desire Paris Hilton"

It is bizarre, but if you keep going back in history, you find personalities like this in every generation. Apparently society needs people like Paris Hilton, and society always has.

Theda Bara, Tallulah Bankhead, Mae West, (gap here?) Grable, Betty Paige, Jane Russell, Jane McCormick, Marilyn Monroe, Goldie Hawn?, (gap here?), Madonna, Britney, Paris, Kardishiana, Gaga?

They are what they are, and they seem worthless, but here are people of all kinds with some kind of comment. It is fascinating.

Its because she's young, blond, attractive (nice body too), and RICHER THAN all posters combined!

Klein2, this is readily explained by the phenomenon of the omega wolf. Its pack behavior. Its also quite sad that people give in to such lame animal weaknesses and try pretend they are being rational or even fair. I would not mind so much if they were not commenting on matters of law and international import.

Of course nobody is going to actually look up Tallulah Bankhead, but the parallels go as deep as you care to look.

Like Paris, her parents sent her to a convent because they thought it would calm her down. And like Paris, she wasn't even Catholic.

Pretty well out of control, and every bit as stupid and ditzy as she wanted people to think she was.

There are women who assert their independence by competing with men and winning. There are others who don't compete, but use any means at their disposal to get independence in whatever way they can. It is kind of cheating, but so is the old boy network.

Is it true that Japanese immigration and customs officials gave Paris Hilton a full body cavity search at the hotel she spent the night in to determine if she had hidden illegal drugs inside her?

If so she would have wanted to stay an extra night....

Does this really belong in the crime section? No crime has been committed in Japan.

And, amazing how, most people who know me in Japan think I've made a positive contribution, but if I'd ever been arrested for smoking weed at concerts and parties during my college days, I'd have been denied entry into Japan.

Sarge. It's really gray, isn't it?

I think that Japan is kind of feeling guilty for not having a policy like Malaysia's or Indonesia's, where they just lop off your head, so they set up this arbitrary hurdle at the border and use it to keep the obvious riff raff out. It beats the alternatives.

You and I know that it is one of those "in principle" things, and if you are an otherwise upstanding person with their life together, people just look the other way. It is not "fair", but it is quite expedient and it puts the power and the risk where they belong.

You keep making a positive contribution, and I doubt you will ever have trouble in Japan. Paris already has, what, two convictions for substance abuse PLUS a whole lot of near misses... they did her a favor. She was headed off to Roppongi, where she frankly just would have found trouble. And if she wrote off Malaysia too, so much the better. Meh. Everyone wins.

It seems that because she is "hot" some posters will grant her a very wide margin that they would not grant any other person. People hate this rich spoiled brat because her having money and being a socialite is the only thing that gets her off of her crimes of which others would have been paying the price in jail. Many people lost respect for her when she cried to get out of jail because she just couldn't do the time despite doing the crime. That is why people hate this rich b**ch. Not because she is rich. Because she uses it to get out of paying the price for committing crimes.

folks if this twit had come in on a commercial carrier she wud in all likely hood have been put straight back on outta Jpn but because her pilot/crew wud have had to rest/sleep she got the extra day at NRT

Thanks GW. I think Twit is the most appropriate name for this dame. Thanks to the working class people, Twit gets a few extra hours in Japan. Why do people stay in the Hilton hotel? To make Twits family richer?

I think she was denied entry because she didn't charm the immigration officials sufficiently.

So are a lot of people who were waiting for her at Roppongi Hills.

why is this even in the news. Japanese immigration does it to everybody, regardless of their status, This is exactly how the govt machine is supposed to work. Good Job

Why all the hating on Paris?? She is immensely popular in Japan, and from the looks of things most empty headed Japanese girls aspire to be some sort of Paris Hilton. With all the materialistic and superficial garb that Japanese girls prance around in, and minus the billion dollar hotel fortunate in the back drop. She fits right into the pretentiousness that is Japan!

"Because she uses it to get out of paying the price for committing crimes."

Why does it enrage you so when a young blonde woman gets probation after a conviction when all these other felons and bad hats go free? Go rail at some crooks on Wall Street. They do far more damage, have much more contempt for the little people of the world, and skate far more often.

Another thing that all the posters are missing. She did not complain. She did not protest a bit as far as I heard. She just left. That is not quite what I would call class, but it's something. Steve Jobs had one of entourage stopped at Narita last week for a shuriken and he raised a Huge STink about it (off the record). Paul McCartney had a lot to say too, years back. Paris just took it like a man. Well, OK!

I agree too. Hell, Two Las Vegas Hotels are banning her from entering. Pimps, prostitutes, drug loards, gamblers are all welcomed...but Paris is banned. LOL!. I thought that was hilarious!

That's what comes of being the public figure. Every act, institution around her do toward her will be highlighted. So they must do what's apropriate to the public.

I am disappointed in Japan!! She got caught and did her time in US. If US can move on so should Japan.

Still, all things said and done, J-land giving the boot to foreigners is indicative of age-old shimaguni-konjo thinking and isolationism. PH's presence here was just J-Land giving yet another foreigner the brush-off.

“Going home now. So disappointed to miss my fans in Asia. I promise to come back soon. I love you all! Love Paris xoxo.”

Fans LOL! Fans of her music? Maybe they actually like the stank perfume she bankrolled? I'm a fan of money, but she didn't create that, just born rolling in it.
