Paris Hilton was forced to cancel her trip to Japan after running into difficulties with immigration officials, it has been reported.
The 29-year-old was due to take part in a fashion show and also to promote her new perfume in the country with her sister Nicky.
However the socialite’s plans were scuppered after she arrived at Bangkok airport on a chartered flight and was immediately taken in for questioning by immigration. According to local media reports, the heiress spent 6 hours being questioned in a Bangkok hotel before flying straight back out of Japan again.
The incident happened the day after Paris pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in Las Vegas. The heiress was arrested last month after the car she was travelling in with her boyfriend was pulled over by police and a small amount of cocaine was allegedly found in Paris’ purse.
Paris was fined $2,000 and ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and a drug abuse programme.
Japanese immigration has declined to explain whether the blonde socialite was banned from entering the country, or if she left of her own accord.
Writing on Twitter, Paris said she was “disappointed” at having to leave Japan without fulfilling her plans. She added, “I look forward to coming back to Japan in the future.”
