One of the recent issues was when a teenager accused him of taking advatage of her while she was drunk. However, the now China’s superstar denied the allegation.

Further, the young woman also shared with seven other women who reached out to her and told her that the artist seduced them with promises of jobs and other opportunities. However, the condition is that they have to enter a sexual relationship with him.

Some of those who reached out to her were still under 18. Authorities in Beijing now criminally detained him in response to relevant information reported on the internet. The police said in a statement that this is in line with the information they received that he “repeatedly lured young women to have sexual relations.”

But Kris Wu already repeatedly denied the allegations. “There was no ‘groupie sex’! There was no ‘underage’!” Wu wrote last month on his social media account.

“If there were this kind of thing, please everyone relax, I would put myself in jail!”

As of this writing, the topic continues to trend in Weibo, China’s Twitter-like service. Many users even commented to “Get out of China,” as Mr. Wu is a Canadian citizen.
