Paris Hilton has said that she was disappointed after being barred from entering Japan following her cocaine confession in the US.
The hotel heiress has returned to the US after Japanese immigration officials stopped her from entering the country following her drug conviction.
According her spokeswoman Dawn Miller, the 29-year-old was turned away when she arrived at Narita International Airport in Tokyo.
It comes a day after the socialite admitted possessing cocaine and obstructing a police officer during her arrest in Las Vegas last month.
The multimillionaire socialite received a one-year suspended sentence after her guilty plea in a Nevada court.
Hilton had been due to appear at a news conference in Tokyo to promote her fashion line but has flown back to the US after it was cancelled.The trip was arranged before her arrest last month when police found cocaine in her purse.
Hilton was scheduled to continue the promotional tour with visits to countries including Indonesia and Malaysia, but these trips have also now been axed.
"About to take off. Going home now. So dissappointed to miss my fans in Asia,” Sky News quoted her as saying on her Twitter page.
"I promise to come back soon. I love you all! Love Paris xoxo,” she added.
Miller said in a statement: "Paris was contractually bound to her business trip and didn't want to let down her brands and many Asian fans.”
"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,” he added.
