Kris Wu’s Sexual Assault Scandal

In July 2021, 19-year-old Chinese student Du Meizhu took to Weibo to accuse Kris Wu of a pattern of sexual assault. His victims allegedly involved several women, some underage. She claimed Kris Wu would take advantage of them by getting them drunk and assaulting them while unconscious.

Du Meizhu claimed to be one of the victims, saying she was raped while drunk in December 2020. She was 18 at the time. The student spoke up for at least seven victims, with two being minors.

Kris Wu denied the allegations. The Beijing Public Security Bureau then investigated the crimes. As a result, several companies, such as Lancome, Bvlgari, and Porsche, cut ties with Kris Wu.
