It seems like trouble has ensued for Kris Wu (吴亦凡) several weeks after reports of him pursuing a romantic relationship with several girls in a short period of time came to light.
Over a month after the accusation made headlines, one of his rumoured fling, Du Meizhu (都美竹), decided to call him out for allegedly luring underaged girls under the guise of casting them to become female leads in a music video or signing them to become a new artiste under his label.
In her lengthy statement, Du said that things have been very bad for her ever since “a certain incident took place”. She shared that she grew up in a single-parent family, before admitting to having a few shortcomings such as not feeling very confident and also feeling insecure in relationships. Additionally, Du also claimed that she was diagnosed with depression and anxiety a few months ago.
“I became someone who refused to leave the house and interact with people. I had insomnia, exhaustion, and poor cardiac stability. A month ago, after experiencing cyber-bullying, I even had suicidal ideations. Because so many people were exposing Mr. (Kris) Wu for being unfaithful to me, I even received death threats from some of his fans,” the 18-year-old student revealed.
Du then put the former EXO member on blast, saying, “A lot of my friends were also summoned by you using the same excuses. You had a special WeChat account that you used to add us underaged girls. On 3rd June, after I posted ‘May we both be well’ on Weibo, you immediately deleted the WeChat ID and the middleman’s Weibo.”
“Of course, seeing the innocent look in your eyes, our hearts would go soft. But that doesn’t mean we agreed to be your playthings!” Du added. “I’m extremely shocked and frustrated, but due to privacy reasons, I won’t be revealing the names of the underaged girls who were hurt. Through these clips and texts, I only came to learn that your selection criteria was underaged girls born after 2000 and were in the middle of taking college entrance exams.”
She then continued, “You used the same method (MV casting for female lead, studio signing new artistes) to lure girls to go and play drinking games with you, filling them up with alcohol drinks. All while sweet-talking; ‘I will be responsible to you, I want to be with you’. Your other girlfriends also came to me and asked who’s your official girlfriend?”
“When you travel to different cities for work, you would find other girls to stay the night with you. You still told me to sleep early. Afterwards, you went to an after party and while drinking, you guys took out pictures of a bunch of girls, and picked them out like merchandises. There were also multiple middle persons there, who basically acted like pimps. Perhaps these are just unwritten rules I never knew about?” Du questioned.
The young lady concluded by explaining that there’s no need for her to do things just to get some attention. “I’ve never fabricated photos or maliciously edited any of the videos!” Du clarified. She also revealed that she decided to speak up about the matter on behalf of the other girls who have been allegedly “deceived” by the celeb.
Wu’s studio has since denied all the allegations and proceeded to take legal action against Du for defamation. “We strongly condemn these outrageous statements and malicious slander. We have already enlisted a lawyer to collect evidence, and will immediately file a lawsuit and a police report,” they stated in response to the circulating reports.
The studio also revealed that Du had posed as a staff member from Wu’s studio and fabricated all the contents in the screenshots posted by her.
