Former Idol And Sex Offender Kris Wu’s Appeal Denied By Chinese Court

In 2022, former K-Pop idol Kris Wu (also known as Wu Yi Fan) was sentenced to a total of thirteen years in prison and deportation (eleven years and six months for rape, and an additional one year and ten months for group licentiousness). Wu’s appeal has now been denied by a court in Beijing, China.

(Kris) Wu violated the will of women and took advantage of the drunkenness of multiple victims to have sexual relations with them. His behavior constituted the crime of rape.

In 2021, Wu was detained following accusations of rape, sexual assault, grooming, and seeking out underage girls under false pretenses in a statement made by Chinese influencer Du Meizhu. The statement was uploaded with screenshots of details provided by other women as proof. Wu initially denied the accusations, and in July of 2023, he privately appeared in court to appeal his sentence.

The court upheld the original ruling, and said that Wu’s behavior constituted the crime of group licentiousness; he was the ringleader who gathered others to engage in lewd activities. He will continue to serve his thirteen-year sentence.
