Chinese-Canadian pop idol Kris Wu has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for rape and group licentiousness. After serving his sentence in China, the celebrity will be deported.

On November 25, Beijing Chaoyang District Court officially announced Wu’s sentence. He was previously arrested for suspected rape in August 2021.

According to the announcement, Wu forced sex upon three women who were intoxicated and unconscious at different times between November and December 2020. For this, he was sentenced to 11 years and six months.

Wu was given an additional year and 10 months for “organizing people to engage in promiscuous activities.” This conviction stemmed from an incident in 2018 when Wu and some undisclosed individuals organized an orgy, which is illegal in China, with two women.

The news has instantly gone viral on the Chinese microblogging platform Weibo, with a related hashtag garnering 380 million views in an hour.

Wu became embroiled in the massive sex scandal in July 2021 when then-19-year-old college student Du Meizhu accused him of predatory sexual behavior. Du released screenshots and other proof online claiming that she had been dating Wu and he had admitted to cheating on her with underage girls.

Although Wu and his team immediately denied the accusations, he was detained on suspicion of rape by the Public Security Bureau in Chaoyang district and was formally arrested two weeks later.

Adding to Wu’s troubles, it was announced today that the disgraced star is also being fined 600 million RMB (almost 84 million USD) for tax evasion between 2019 and 2020.

Before coming to China as a solo musician and actor, Wu was a member of the sensational K-pop boy group Exo. He has appeared on Chinese TV and in films such as the hip hop competition show The Rap of China and the 2017 action thriller XXX: Return of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel.
