BEIJING (Reuters) - A Beijing court on Friday sentenced Canadian singer Kris Wu to 13 years in prison after sentenced him to crimes including rape just over a year after his arrest in China, where he was born and had built a lucrative career had been found guilty.
According to the Chaoyang District Court, the investigation had found that the 32-year-old, also known as Wu Yifan, raped three women from November to December 2020.
"Wu Yifan took advantage of three drunk women... in his home," the court said on its official WeChat account.
A former member of K-pop group EXO, the superstar returned to China in 2014 to pursue a solo career.
Wu was arrested 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.
At the time, the student told the media that Wu lured her into sex when she was 17 after dousing her with alcohol.
The court also found him guilty of the crime of gathering a crowd to engage in sexual promiscuity in July 2018, sources said.
Canada's embassy in Beijing did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment, although state media said their officials attended the sentencing hearing.
He was also fined 600 million yuan ($83.77 million) for concealing personal income and other tax crimes, the tax bureau said.
Wu has evaded 95 million yuan in taxes from 2019 to 2020 by concealing personal income through domestic and foreign affiliated companies and underpaying 84 million yuan in taxes, authorities said.
At the time of his imprisonment, Wu was an ambassador for 15 brands including Bulgari, Lancome, Louis Vuitton and Porsche, all of which immediately severed ties with him.
The court said Wu would be deported, although lawyers in China said such deportations usually come after the verdict has been completed.
