Chinese-Canadian actor and singer Kris Wu has been fined nearly $84 million on tax evasion charges less than two hours after he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for rape on Friday.
The 32-year-old singer, whose real name is Wu Yifan, was fined 600 million yuan (approx.
Beijing local tax authorities said Wu hid his income through domestic and foreign affiliated companies and evaded 95 million yuan (about $13.2 million) worth of taxes from 2019 to 2020.
According to the tax office, Wu also failed to pay 84 million yuan (about US$11.7 million) in taxes.

"The Second Inspection Bureau of the Beijing Municipal Tax Service has sent Wu Yifan the administrative penalty decision in accordance with the law," the tax bureau said, according to the South China Morning Post.
The fine came less than two hours after Wu was sentenced to prison for raping three women from November to December 2020.
Chinese influencer Du Meizhu initially accused Wu of luring girls under the age of 18 into sex on the pretext that they were being recruited as actors. On July 8, 2021, Du claimed that Wu raped her when she was 17, along with two other minors.

He was arrested on July 31, 2021 and formally arrested on August 16, 2021 for rape.
"Wu Yifan took advantage of three drunk women ... in his home," the Chaoyang District People's Court said on its official WeChat account.
The Chinese court found that the singer had raped the women in his apartment while they were drunk and unable to defend themselves.

Wu was also found guilty of "assembling a crowd to engage in sexual promiscuity" on July 18, 2018, in an incident at his home involving two women and alcohol.
Wu was convicted of two charges, including rape and gathering a crowd to engage in promiscuous activities. He was sentenced to 11.5 years or 22 months before the court set a 13-year time limit.
"Justice was late, but at least it's here," Du reportedly wrote on Weibo after Wu's sentencing. "I am very grateful to the Chinese legal system because it does not spare any criminal, even if he is a megastar."

Born in Guangzhou, China, Wu rose to fame as a member of the K-pop group EXO. In 2014 he left the group and started a solo career in China.
After the scandal, several brands including L'Oréal, Porsche and Vattie immediately severed ties with Wu.
Amid the high-profile case in August 2021, China's National Radio and Television Administration held a two-day "ethical training" for 64 Chinese celebrities and talents. Attendees included The First Half of My Life actor Lei Jiayin and former child star Zhang Yishan.
