Paris Hilton, the 29-year-old socialite, flew home on a private jet after being denied entry to Japan, according to Kazuo Kashihara, a spokesman at Narita International Airport’s immigration office.

The socialite arrived in Tokyo yesterday and stayed overnight at an airport hotel as officials debated whether to allow her into Japan, said Kashihara, declining to provide further information because of privacy reasons.

Hilton pleaded guilty in Las Vegas to a misdemeanor drug charge on Monday; Japanese law forbids entry to those with drug convictions, although exceptions can be made, the Associated Press reported.

“Paris Hilton left around 4 p.m. today,” Kashihara said. “I cannot comment on the investigation process, but Paris Hilton arrived last night and was questioned, and was officially denied access into Japan today.”

She had traveled to Japan to promote fashion and perfume brands, and was scheduled to appear in a promotional event in Roppongi today, according to Tsuyuka Yamashita, a spokeswoman at the advertisement agency Sunnyside Up, which helped arrange the event. The event was canceled, Yamashita said.

Hilton was also scheduled to fly to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Jakarta, Indonesia, according to the AP.

The socialite, who is a great-granddaughter of U.S. hotelier Conrad Hilton, wrote on her Twitter account, “About to take off. Going home now. So dissappointed (sic) to miss my fans in Asia. I promise to come back soon.”
