This has been ruled by a Chinese court in Beijing Chinese Canadian pop star Kris Wualso known as Wu Yifan, to 13 years in prison after pleading guilty to sex crimes, including rape, the court said in a post on its official Weibo account.

Wu rose to fame as a member of Popular Korean-Chinese pop group EXOthen as a solo act after he left the band in 2014.

The Chaoyang District People’s Court in Beijing stated that between November 2020 and December 2020, the singer raped three women in his residence, when the women were unable or did not know how to resist due to alcohol intoxication; and in July 2018, he and others organized two women to participate in “promiscuous activities” while drunk at his residence, the court said.

The court convicted Wu on two charges – rape and gathering a crowd to engage in promiscuous activities – and sentenced him to 11.5 years and 22 months respectively. According to the Weibo post, the court handed down a 13-year prison sentence.

Wu will be deported after serving his sentence, the court said.

Wu was formal arrested on suspicion of rape in August last year, after he was first detained by police in the Chinese capital in July 2021 following an online outcry over sexual assault allegations against him in what has become China’s most high-profile #MeToo case.

Officials from the Canadian embassy in China attended the sentencing, the court added.

The Canadian embassy in China did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment on Friday.

CNN is also seeking a response from Wu’s representatives.

Separately, the Beijing Municipal Tax Department has fined Wu 600 million RMB (about $83.8 million) for tax evasion, according to a statement from the agency released on Friday.
