Kris Wu Yifan has found himself at the center of controversies involving several women in the past two months. It all started from dating rumors due to leaked surveillance photos of him watching a movie with a girl, which his team denied and explained to be a group outing with friends. However, he was soon subjected to accusations from friends of an 18-year-old college student named Du Meizhu whom they say Kris dated and ghosted. Internet celebrity Xiang Yunjie who was also rumored to be dating him said that she and Kris were attracted and got to know each other but it’s not a disgraceful relationship like Netizens are speculating. With claims by different girls causing an uproar, Kris’s side quickly responded with a legal notice issued on June 3 against the inaccurate statements made by users online.
However, things did not end there. On July 8, Du Meizhu made new accusations in a long post written on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. She said, “After experiencing cyberbullying and death threats, I still find it difficult to accept after knowing the facts: You love many girls at the same time; and I, Du Meizhu, was just one of them.” Du Meizhu reveals she’s been diagnosed with depression and anxiety and even thought of committing suicide after all the online bullying in the past month. She said too many people have shown her proof that Mr. Wu has cheated. She said, “You have a designated Wechat number for us underaged girls.” However, she reveals that the WeChat, Weibo accounts of “Kris” and his alleged “middleman” have already been disabled. She said, “For privacy reasons, I won’t name the underaged girls who were also hurt. From the videos and text, I learned that your selection requirements are those born after 2000 and underaged girls preparing for the gaokao (national college entrance exams)…”
Du Meizhu says that she’s heard from other women who had the same experience as her and provided screenshots as evidence. She claims Kris Wu would use the same method of “casting an MV leading lady” and “signing a newcomer to the studio” as reasons to invite underaged girls to play drinking games and get them drunk. He’ll allegedly coax them into dating him with sweet words. On the other hand, he’ll have the girls’ photos at drinking parties for people to choose as if they were merchandise. She says she has no reason to resort to illegal acts to draw attention but had to speak out on behalf of the underaged girls. She said, “Hope everyone can keep your eyes open, do not be deceived by the perfect person, see the facts….”
In the face of such serious accusations, Kris Wu’s studio clapped back with a strongly-worded statement. They say they are shocked that there is no bottom line to the attempts to create buzz and attract attention, they strongly condemn deliberate sensationalism and malicious slander. They have entrusted a lawyer to collect evidence and file a case.
They also shared a statement from Beijing Xingquan Law Firm against Weibo user “Du Meizhu” who has published a large number of false statements about Wu Yifan and provided Weibo private messages and WeChat conversations of a fake Wu Yifan “staff” which has seriously damaged his reputation.
On July 9, Du Meizhu wrote another post to say that all they want is a simple apology. She said she is preparing to file a case with the police and will actively cooperate with them to find out the identity of the owners of the alleged Weibo and WeChat accounts. She has also tagged the police and People’s Daily (China’s official newspaper) in her post.
Dannngggg….either way his reputation as a playboy can’t be erased from anyone’s mind now! Careful when playing with a woman you scorned. I’m sad only because I doubt we’ll be seeing Golden Hairpin anytime soon…I feel bad for Yang Zi!
I sincerely hope the Power of Kris’s company will cover up the truth… As his behavior is has been very fishy. Young girls in our era is not as ignorant or naive as before.
typo: will not be able to cover up the truth. Regardless how powerful they are.
Okay the fact that there has been so many rumors of him out with young girls and now this, it is just too much of a coincidence. A lot of young women are being harmed because of him; honestly he needs to retire from the industry now
It takes 2 hands to clap. As the commentator above says, young girls nowadays are not naive or ignorant, especially city girls. Many 17 & 18 year old girls actively go out in search of rich “prey” too. What are they doing in nightclubs or bars during school semesters?
If this Du girl had gotten what she wanted, do you think she would be acting like an innocent victim now? No, she would be proudly displaying the relationship. She is 18 and already an old hand at this. Did you think she didn’t know who he is and his reputation which is so public?
It’s a different matter of course, if the allegation is that he pretended to be somebody else, or use force or blackmail them. Then this is criminally wrong at any age.
Nah, this ain’t it. She’s a teenage girl with dreams of being famous, as are the rest of the girls. Super telling how they’re being targeted with job opportunities (MV leading lady) as well as a relationship. The 30 year old is the one who should know better than to target young girls barely out of high school with little life experience and too young to know better.
So he’s a playboy, not a rapist. Unless he used force. Just as the guy above says. They’re 17&18 and they want a rich guy to make them famous.
That isn’t an innocent intention either. Yes he should know better than to be a playboy, but dating a young in their late teens person itself isn’t a crime nor should it be.
You know Taylor Swift dated Connor Kennedy back in the day when he was 17 and in highschool. No one batted an eyelid. You’re not a child at that point.
Yaasssss! I’m so glad someone has the balls to stand up to him and his team!! Hopefully the truth will be revealed! Too much coincidence to be fake. There’s gotta be something there….
There is something. He’s clearly a playboy. But I don’t think it’s fair to frame it as rape. You can tell because she talks about him meeting other girls, ‘choosing concubine’ and leaving her.
She’s using rape now as a means of revenge because that makes it reported as a ‘rape scandal’.
to be clear, his lawyer has only threatened to file a lawsuit. None has been filed yet.
good catch have made edits. thanks!
So, if he apologized this would have all ended?
If he apology then he will admit to the act and that will mean the end to his career… Thus that apology will be hard to come by.
Yikes!!!!! Not a fan, but this sucks because I wanna see YangZi in The Golden Pin. Sounds like too true to be lies, Kris better clean his act!!!! Despicable if it’s true!!!!
I enjoy watch Yang Zi projects but I was going to skip this as I really never liked Kris…And cannot bare to watch this pairing… I hope they will reshoot the drama…
yeah same here. Not a Kris Wu fan. He cannot act.
Same!! Never like his acting!!!
Ready with my popcorn now. Let’s see how this goes. It doesn’t seem to affect him in any way as I see. We still hear news of him getting endorsements and his drama with Yangzi is coming in Aug
The experience with Huang Junjie has taught me NOT to believe every accusation that comes out of a woman’s mouth. People have various reasons for what they do., she might be a scorned woman out for revenge. And while I personally don’t care for Kris Wu, being a serial dater/playboy and dating underaged girls are two very different things. The first is a moral issue, if he isn’t married, he’s only hurting the women he dates. The second, could be considered criminal in my country. I’m interested to see how this plays out. My observation with some c-netizens is that they have no scruples making things up to throw mud on celebrities (good example is the 227 incident with Xiao Zhan). I’d like to watch and see how this all plays out. Too bad for this scandal, I was really looking forward to The Golden Hairpin. It seems that most of Yang Zi’s dramas are currently stuck on the shelf, and I’m hoping to catch at least one of her latest dramas this year😔
Not her saying he loves them when they’re the ones chasing after him and exposing themselves in these kind of posts, lmao. And underage? Girls, you’re over 18!🤣 As internet stars, they know very well that they can gain lots of followers and support(money too) on weibo from these scandals when huge celebrities are involved and they don’t care if they lie in their posts because daddy has his wallet ready for lawyers and people on the internet are ready to shit on the celebrities to praise these girls as always. It’s nothing new.
It’s not Yi Fan’s fault. He’s a public figure, a celebrity and very famous and many women are throwing themselves at him. This girl once said that he likes to date Wang Yibo and Zhang Yixing too. It’s clear that she likes to go after famous celebrities. Yi Fan ghosted her and she wants to ruin Yi Fan’s reputation and career? 😳🤭 Sorry girl, you are not his type 😂🤣
Not Yi Fan’s fault? So you know the facts already?? Regardless who this girl is, there are still others girls with evidences and they are young. If Yi Fan walks with clean and clear morals.he need not worry about the evidence. It is more realistic to see how this unfolds then blindly believing him?
Converting a bad boy – a fantasy that can drive you crazy to a point of obsessiveness. I suggest she get drunk with her closest friends, have a good cry, and move on – to a good guy, hopefully.
I’m glad most of the comments here have sense. As for the victim blamers, you guys are disgusting. I do not care if she is 18. That’s still a very young girl and this 30 year old man was taking advantage of her, no matter how anyone tries to spin it. It grossed me out when he was caught with that girl in the movie theatre. What kind of grown man wants to date a girl still young enough to be in high school? “She’s using him for fame” HE IS THIRTY, he shouldn’t have approached a teenager.
If those videos and texts exist it should be easy to verify who’s telling the truth. Also if his side truly knows he’s innocent then a lawsuit will be filed and he can clear his name. Even if he’s cleared of any illegal activities though, he’s still displayed himself to be a creep and I will avoid his productions like the plague.
They met face to face ONCE and she said herself before chasing after him that she would date Yixing and Yibo. She’s not the first one who’s doing this. Why do you even think he ghosted her? Why do you even think he threatened to sue her after those posts she made since the biginning of the last month? You don’t think at all and it shows. Just say you support these kind of actions from this kind of young girls just because of their age(which they’re taking advantage of). Just go and search new novels and manhuas written by girls of her age marked as “romance stories” that are starting with R rated scenes and even worse type of scenes or go and look on Weibo at the internet celebrities to see how they’re drinking, smoking and going to the bars underage. For example, EvilLilico(who’s 18 now). She does all of these and posted at the age of 16 a photo on Weibo almost naked in the bed and deleted it this year after someone exposed her on her insta live. Her friends do the same. Teenagers and teens these days are NOT innocent at all, and i’m saying this as a 19y/o who saw worse cases than this scandal. My ex-classmate dated a 24 year old college dude when she was 13. 13! And it was her who chased after him and showed off with that. I had a friend who dated a 12th grade dude who was 18 already when she was just 7th grade. And guess who chased after who? Her. And they’re not the only ones i know who dated older men or boys at these ages. From what i know, in China the consent age is 14. I my country is 15, which makes the cases i mentioned illegal.
Your age explains it all. When you’re older you’ll realize how young you and the girls you’re talking about really are. You guys are essentially still kids, and 13 years old is an actual child! I don’t care if she was the one who chased the older guy, the responsibility lies with the adult. Kris Wu is a thirty year old man and he should be the one who knows better. I even said that if he’s innocent he can file a lawsuit and clear his name of illegal activity. But as an actual adult, I cannot condone his actions with such young girls.
I too agree…as adults, we do see things in a different prospective… I too see a 30yr old taking advantage of the younger girls…taking advantage of their youth, naivete, giving them expensive gifts and fullfilling their greedy dreams etc…But these girls are still young, regardless how materialistic they are.. And a 30yr old man should know better then to take advantage of it…
It’s still victim blaming, it doesn’t matter who chases who or their age.
Yes these girls are wrong for chasing after an older guy, but he’s still taking advantage of the situation. As an adult and older, he should know better to stay away from those girls, especially when it’s widely known that there are those girls around. He should take responsibility for his own actions.
Jesus Christ. Ok by your logic, if a 13 yr old boy decided to chase you, does that mean you automatically will get together with him? Or would you be like, “nope you’re too young for me”?? Just like you have the option to turn that 13 yr old boy down, all those older men also had that option BUT CHOSE NOT TO. They chose to take advantage of all these immature young girls for their own selfish pursuits. They are not good men. Chris Wu included.
Fandom aside, I hope you learn to recognize predatory older men in real life situations. It’s so sad that society has normalized these types of power imbalanced relationships. Just b/c the age of consent it set at a certain number doesn’t change the fact that the much older partner was predatory.
I was so sure that you’ll judge me based on my age, but my age has nothing to do with my mentality just like how you think that just because you’re a few years older than me you’re more mature. No, you’re just judgemental, not mature. And you don’t know this generation i’m part of either, like how you call someone who’s 18 or 19 a child, ages when the reality hits you, you already have responsabilities and you’re aware of what you’re doing. Du is not 13 and me neither and i bet you’re not that much older than us to call us “kids”. Psychologically speaking, Kris is someone who adopted the bad boy persona from the fictional characters and fake american celebrities he saw on tv, but he’s actually very clumsy and childish even in his 30s and, believe it or not, still an introvert.
Poor Kris…such a innnocent introvert… No wonder there are fans like you that supports him…
Back to the subject, Du is 18, a preadult like you, me and Kris, a naïve and dreamy one, and when she ended up in that relationship(which i am sure it wasn’t an official one since they met face to face once), she had half of the responsability just like him in those few months before he ghosted her and pointing through his actions that he’s not into her and doesn’t want to have a relationship with her(let’s count his schedule too).
I BELIEVE HER AND IM THOROUGHLY DISGUSTED WITH SOIETY ENABLING THESE BOYS THROUGHOUT THE INDUSTRY BECAUSE THEY HAVE MACHINES BACKING AND PROTECTING THEIR CASH COWS.
Wonder what the Sasha fan girl who has been defending this rapist has to say now? His career is over as it should. Hope the deluded fans will stop defending him now. In case there is a next time it’s better to take the side of a potential liar than a potential rapist. As a woman learn to have some sympathy for other women. Stop with your Oppa syndrome already. Fans like you are the reasons many rapists get away with stuff. Just whitewashing and defending Oppa. My oppa is innocent like a baby. So glad this scandal made it big so that Kris wu’s team couldn’t burry it like the previous times.
