Chinese Canadian musician and actor Kris Wu was sentenced to prison in a Beijing court on Friday over 2020 rape charges.
A court in Beijing’s Chaoyang district has determined that the investigation has sufficiently proven that between November and December 2020, a 32-year-old polymath artist – real name Wu Yifan – raped three women. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison and to be deported from China after serving his sentence, Reuters reported.
“Wu Yifan abused three drunk women … in his home,” the district court said in a statement released via its WeChat account.
The allegations against Wu first surfaced last July, when 18-year-old college student and beauty influencer Du Meizhu accused him of s*xually assaulting multiple women while they were unconscious or intoxicated, some of whom were minors. Reportedly, Wu lured these women to his home with the promise to discuss career opportunities.
This is an evolving story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
