Hilton cancels her Asia tour
Paris Hilton canceled her Asia tour and returned home when she was denied entry at Tokyo’s airport Wednesday after a drug violation in the U.S. — running afoul of strict Japanese laws that have tripped up celebrities including Paul McCartney and Diego Maradona.
The 29-year-old celebrity socialite had arrived at Narita International Airport, outside the Japanese capital, after pleading guilty Monday to a misdemeanor drug charge in Las Vegas.
Japan has strict immigration laws that bar entry to those convicted of drug offenses, although exceptions are occasionally granted.
Hilton also canceled planned appearances in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Jakarta, Indonesia.
