Kris Wu Detained In China For Suspected Rape

For starters, the Beijing police has detained former EXO member Kris Wu on July 31, 2021, for, allegedly, seducing young women into having an intimate encounter with him. It has been made clear, however, that the case against the Chinese-Canadian pop star is still under investigation.

The sexual assault and rape allegations first emerged in July. A Chinese woman took to Weibo to share about her horrific experience when she was a student at the Communication University of China in Beijing.

She shared that she was 17 at the time of the alleged assault. Though there were not enough evidence presented to prove the claim at the time, the accusations gained further traction after 163.com, a major news portal, interviewed the Chinese woman.

Kris Wu categorically denied the allegations on his personal Weibo account. The company of the former K-pop idol even announced that it was pursuing legal action against the accuser and even called the allegations "malicious rumors."

The social media accounts of Kris Wu, which includes his Weibo page with more than 51 million followers, have been taken down after the police released a statement. The ruling Communist Party's Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission, which is the top law enforcement agency in China, also commented on the pop star's detention.

"On Chinese land, it is necessary to abide by Chinese laws. We do not wrong; we do not indulge. We take facts as the basis and the law as the criterion."
