A Beijing court has sentenced Canadian-Chinese singer Kris Wu to 13 years in prison for raping three women at his home in 2020, while they were under the influence of alcohol. The singer was also found guilty of tax evasion and organizing an illegal orgy.

Wu, known in China as Wu Yifan, shot to fame as a member of Korean-Chinese pop group EXO and enjoyed a lucrative solo career after leaving the band in 2014. The 32-year-old was arrested last year after an 18-year-old student publicly accused him of coercing her and other girls, some under the age of 18, into sex.

The Chaoyang District People’s Court in Beijing found Wu guilty of raping three women at his Chinese residence in late 2020, “when they were drunk and did not know or [were] not able to resist,” according to a court statement seen by the BBC.
