Chinese-Canadian former K-pop star Kris Wu, has been sentenced to 11 years and 6 months imprisonment for rape, and another 1 year and 10 months for engaging in group intercourse.
The 32-year-old will serve 13 years of his sentence before being deported from China.
Wu had raped three women who were drunk and unable to resist his assault at his home from November to December 2020.
Former K-pop singer and celebrity Kris Wu, has been arrested for suspected rape after allegations of rape against him were put forth by multiple women.
Wu’s rumoured ex-girlfriend Du Meizhu, 19-years-old, was one of those who came forward with the allegations, posting on Weibo on 8 July. (It has since been taken down)
She was allegedly pressured into drinking alcohol and found herself in Wu’s bed the next day.
Du then said that 7 other women were allegedly seduced by Wu with promises of jobs and career opportunities, according to BBC.
At the time of writing, about 24 women have claimed that Wu allegedly behaved inappropriately towards them, with alleged text conversations being leaked online as well.
Wu has since denied the accusations and refuted Du’s claims, saying that he met her only once during a gathering at a friend’s place on 5 December last year.
He said that he will “check (himself) into prison if he was guilty of sexual coercion or drug facilitated sexual assault.
