BEIJING — A Beijing court on Friday sentenced Chinese-born Canadian pop star Kris Wu to 13 years in prison after being found guilty of charges including rape.
Beijing’s Chaoyang District Court said investigations found the man, also known as Wu Yifan, raped three women from November to December 2020.
It also found him guilty of the crime of gathering a crowd to engage in sexual promiscuity in July 2018, according to the court’s official WeChat account.
The court also said Wu would be deported, although lawyers in China said deportations usually take place after a defendant has served his sentence.
Wu was arrested in Beijing on July 31 last year after an 18-year-old Chinese student publicly accused him of tricking her and other girls, some of them under the age of 18, into having sex with him.
Officials from the Canadian Embassy in Beijing attended the sentencing, according to state media.
The Canadian embassy did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
