Chinese-Canadian rapper turned actor Kris Wu, one of China’s biggest stars, has been accused of sexual abuse.
It is alleged that he lured young girls and teens into having sex with him.
The claims have led to several brands dropping him.
The rapper is accused of supplying teenagers with alcohol so that he could have sex with them. His first accuser, Du Meizhu, says he did this to her when she was 17.
The age of consent in China is 14.
Chinese tabloid Global Times reported that Wu previously attempted to pay Du about 500,000 yuan ($77,166) in hush money to stay quiet with her story. She has started paying the rapper back so that she can take him to court.
“I didn’t respond earlier because I didn’t want to interfere with judicial proceedings… but I cannot bear it anymore,” the rapper said on Monday according to The Hollywood Reporter. “If I’ve done any of the things [she claims], I will take myself to jail,” he added.
