It has been two weeks since “Youth With You 3” (青春有你 3) trainee, Wei Hongyu (魏宏宇), was accused of cheating on his ex-girlfriend, hooking up with girls, not repaying his debts, and getting girls drunk to have sex with him. Since the scandal broke, his ex-girlfriend, Li Jiarui (李佳睿), has spoken out twice since the rumors were circulating and provided evidence to back up her claims. Since Wei Hongyu’s company, BF Entertainment, made a statement on February 22 denying all the rumors, they haven’t addressed any of the allegations brought upon by Li Jiarui. The last time Li Jiarui posted was on February 28, demanding Wei Hongyu be withdrawn from the show, for his company to retract their statement, and have Wei Hongyu publicly apologize to her and his fans, or else she would expose him with more “concrete evidence”.

Date Rape and Drugging Allegations

Lastly, Wei Hongyu’s mother spoke on the date rape and drugging allegations against Wei Hongyu. In the initial allegations, there was a screenshot of a chat conversation showing Wei Hongyu allegedly asking his friend for advice about getting a girl drunk to have sex with him. Fans claimed the screenshot was doctored, Li Jiarui later claimed these allegations were true and showed the chat was real in a live action video. Wei Hongyu’s mother said, “Regarding the false online comments about ‘date rape’, ‘drugging’, it has brought a lot of negative impact to Wei Hongyu’s career and has severely damaged his reputation. If these baseless slander and defamatory [allegations] continue on, as a mother, I will personally use my legal weapons to protect my son’s legal rights.”

These rumors and allegations don’t seem to have affected Wei Hongyu’s results on “Youth With You 3”. On the latest rankings as of March 6, Wei Hongyu maintained his 4th spot for the second week in a row.
