    China sentences Chinese-Canadian star Kris Wu to 13 years

    BEIJING (AP) – A Chinese court yesterday sentenced Chinese-Canadian pop star Kris Wu (AP pic, below) to 13 years in prison on charges including rape.

    Beijing’s Chaoyang District Court said Wu was given 11 years and six months for a 2020 rape, and 1 year and 10 months for the “crime of assembling a crowd to engage in sexual promiscuity” in a 2018 event in which he and others allegedly assaulted two women.

    It said a combined 13-year sentence was agreed on and Wu would be immediately deported after serving his time.

    Wu was also slapped with a fine of CNY600 million (USD83.7 million) for evading taxes by massively underreporting his earnings from performances, advertisements and other sources of income.
