Kris Wu Was Sentenced To 13 Years In Prison By A Chinese Court For Rape

A Beijing court has given Kris Wu, who is also known as Wu Yifan, a 13-year jail sentence.

Last August, it was said that Beijing police had arrested Kris Wu on suspicion of rape and were holding her.

Kris Wu was sentenced to 13 years in prison on November 25 (local time) for two different crimes. After looking into the case, the Chaoyang District Court found that Kris Wu had raped three women between November and December 2020.

He was found guilty and given a sentence of 11 years and 6 months in prison. “Wu Yifan took advantage of three drunk women at his home,” the court said.

Kris Wu was also given a year and ten months in prison for the “crime of gathering a crowd to engage in sexual promiscuity.” This happened in July 2018, when he and other drunk people attacked two women.

Kris Wu will be sent straight back to Canada, where he grew up, after serving 13 years in China. “This decision was based on the facts, as well as the nature, circumstances, and harmful effects of the crime,” the court said.

The Tax Bureau also said that Kris Wu has been ordered to pay 600 million yuan (about $83,636,500) for tax offences such as hiding personal income. Authorities say that between 2019 and 2020, Kris Wu avoided paying about $13,242,400 in taxes and paid about $11,709,100 less than he should have.

Kris Wu made his debut with Exo in 2012; however, he left the group in 2014 due to contract issues with SM Entertainment. After a court-ordered arbitration, Sm Entertainment and Kris Wu reached a settlement whereby Kris Wu’s contract with Sm Entertainment would remain in effect until 2022, per the terms of his original contract.
