Paris Hilton is never far from drama. Thanks to a recent cocaine conviction in Las Vegas this week, the celebrity socialite has now been kicked out of Japan and is heading back to the U.S, CNN reports.  Sadly for Hilton, Japanese immigration authorities can deny entry to anyone with drug-related convictions.

The star was arrested in Las Vegas last month when police stopped a car she was a passenger in and a small amount of cocaine was found in a purse.  Ms Hilton was fined $2,000, ordered to complete 200 hours of community service and a drug abuse programme.  And another visit to jail could be around the corner if she was arrested again in Las Vegas in the next year.

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. And it doesn’t stay off Taiwanese animation, either — check out an animated version of her recent troubles.
