On the morning of November 25, 2022 local time, the People’s Court of Chaoyang District, Beijing revealed the verdict of former Chinese-Canadian idol, Kris Wu Yifan (吴亦凡), for rape charges. Kris Wu has been detained by the Beijing Chaoyang authorities since July 2021 and spent his 32nd birthday, which just passed on November 6, in jail. The first court session for Kris Wu’s case was held in June 2022, which revealed he was charged with an additional crime of group licentiousness, i.e. having sex with multiple partners at once. Kris Wu’s team expressed they would appeal the verdict at the sentencing.

Kris Wu was found guilty of rape and sentenced to 11 years and 6 months in prison. As for the group licentiousness charges, Kris Wu was sentenced to 1 year and 10 months. The court decided to implement a 13 year sentence in prison for all the crimes. He will also face deportation out of China. According to a lawyer from a Beijing law firm, Kris Wu must serve out his 13 year prison sentence in China before he will be deported back to Canada.

During the trial, it was discovered from November to December 2020, Kris Wu had sexually assaulted three females at his residence who were intoxicated with alcohol and not conscious to resist or be able to resist his advances. In another incident dating back to July 1, 2018, Kris Wu and his cohorts organized sexual activities at his residence with two females after they were intoxicated with alcohol. The Beijing Chaoyang court felt Kris Wu’s behavior constituted as rape and group licentiousness, which led to their ruling on his sentence.

It’s reported officials from the Canadian embassy to China were in attendance at the sentencing.

Du Meizhu gets closure

After Kris Wu’s sentence was announced, Du Meizhu, who was the first person to expose Kris Wu’s actions to the public, posted “Finally waited for it to happen!”.

Tax Evasion

In addition to being convicted for rape, Kris Wu was being investigated by the Beijing Municipal Tax Service and was found guilty of tax evasion from 2019 to 2020. The Beijing Municipal Tax Service has delivered their findings to Kris Wu a few days ago, which revealed he owed 600 million RMB in back taxes and fines.

  1. Good he deserved it.

    I wished LEWIS CHAN PING -KEUNG , the hospital GROPER who GROPED ME, in FEBRUARY 2006 would had gone to JAIL FOR LIFE. I lost his dirty fingers, hands DNA as I wiped it off on same midnight. I was scared and upsetted, and cry at home upon discharged from a public same day. I am the only witness myself. One year later after went back to England to see my morher but didn’t tell her, dont want to upsetted her. I came back to HK and reported to the SUN, chinese newspapers. Thanks to SUN who published my case. He myst be mad and nervous as he saw me in hospital lobby he qent to get something trying to attacked me, after a while he wrnt to duty as he was late. Qhen found his real FB, I scolded him and told him to surrender to the Police. Yet this cold blooded Demon created many FAKE FBs on his real name but no pictures on any FBs. This COWARD later erased the hospital name of NORTH DISTRICT HOSPITAL AND MOVEF TO QUEEN MARY HOSPITAL HK. You can find him there on his website as LEWIS CHAN PING – KEUNG O&T SPECIFICALITY. I believed KARMA will after him and may he dies in HELL.

  2. Wait I’m really confused cause wasn’t it revealed that Du Meizhu falsified evidence and police bribery? Also I saw on a TikTok that that’s the ruling for the first trial meaning he could get an appeal.

    1. I’m confused too. I remember they said that DM was fabricating the story. I don’t know what’s the truth anymore. I also remember KW’s statement back then when he said “If I’m guilty.. don’t worry I’ll enter prison myself!” .. It means he was certain of his innocence and wasn’t afraid of anything.

      1. Just because he said that doesn’t mean he’s innocent. Li Yifeng also vehemently denied he engaged with prostitutes and he turned out to be a liar. Even if that Du Mei Zhu girl is a liar, doesn’t mean the other girls are liars. There was obviously more than one victim. He’s been handed a verdict. Unless they have irrefutable evidence, they wouldn’t have announced it so publicly.

  3. Well it is indeed sad to see young man doing this kind of assault. Cause you have so much money, instead of doing those things in your residence, go and do social work in your country, for children , for elderly. And what will happen now, 13 years, he will be 45 when he comes out. The most of the precious years to build a family and to do good things in this short live we have now is over. If he won’t be dead by then in a Chinese prison, he will reget it and it will be too late. Sad to see idols doing those stuff, idols are public figures they are role models. It is sad from my point of view.
