Kris Wu, also named Wu Yifan, is a 32-year-old Chinese born Canadian former rapper, singer, actor and model. He was recently convicted as a serial rapist and sentenced to 13 years in jail by the Beijing court. 

The Chinese authorities charged Kris Wu last July 2021, for various sexual harassment cases filed by internet celebrities and underaged girls. 

The rapper was found guilty of raping three woman back in November and December 2020. It was said that these women were inebriated and were not capable of defending themselves at that time of the crime. To make matters worse, the incidents occurred inside Kris Wu’s own home. 

More so, he was also a part of an act described as “group licentiousness”, wherein three or more people are assembled to do sexual activities. This sort of exploits are offenses and punishable with five or more years jail time with more severe punishment if there are minors involved. 

Kris Wu’s sentence has become a hot topic on Weibo, a popular Chinese social media app, and many netizens say they are happy with the decision. They also concluded that the rapper is making history for being the first idol in China to go to jail for as long as 13 years.  

After the rapper’s 13 year imprisonment, he will be deported from China to Canada. 

“This decision was made in accordance with the facts, as well as the nature, circumstances, and harmful consequences of the crime.” the court said. 

Kris Wu was formerly a member of the South Korean boy group, EXO, in 2012. However, he left the group after two years due to issues regarding his contract with the agency, SM entertainment. After settling the conflict in court, the two parties agreed that the rapper’s commitment with SM Entertainment will be valid until 2022, as per the original contract.
