Kris Wu has been embroiled in a controversy for the past couple months, with the severity of things ramping up exponentially as of late, as he’s now facing allegations of being predatory towards underage girls and multiple instances of rape.
Still, he had not responded to the allegations until today, as things got to the point where brands were dropping him left and right. In his statement, he denies the allegations.
I didn’t respond previously because I didn’t want to interfere with the progress of the legal process, but I didn’t expect that my silence would lead to more intense attacks from those who are spreading rumors. I have reached my limit! I have only seen Miss Du once, at a gathering with friends on December 5, 2020. I didn’t force her to drink, didn’t take away her phone, and none of the “details” she described ever happened. There were a lot of people at the gathering that will confirm this! I’m very sorry to have caused inconvenience to everyone. I declare, there has never been any so-called “selection of concubines”! No “rape after seduction” “rape using date rape drugs”! No “minors”! If there has been such actions, please don’t worry, I’ll go to prison myself!! I take legal responsibility for my words above!!
Honestly man, it reads like a desperate denial with all the exasperation and what not.
Anyway, his studio also released a statement.
Other women are now reportedly coming forward, including Zhang Dansan, a former SNH48 member, who found him creepy.
For those still utterly confused by all the information coming out fast and furious now, here’s what I think is a credible timeline from reporting I’ve seen so far.
