Du Meizhu is making it clear that she hasn’t backed down from putting Kris Wu and his studio on blast for their alleged dirty deeds.
The 18-year-old appeared in an interview with Tencent Entertainment’s “Front Line” over the weekend, where she shed more light on the controversy involving the Chinese-Canadian celeb and also the tremendous backlash she received over the matter.
Du revealed that she has been getting tons of death threats from Wu’s fans online as well as legal threats. Apart from telling her to “go die”, they also claimed that she was faking her depression, and proceeded to come up with false claims to slander her. Many also accused Du of trying to gain clout, to which she refuted. Instead, she said that she wanted to spread awareness about the matter.
There were also some netizens who claimed that she doesn’t have real evidence, and the pics that she posted previously have been edited. “There are more that haven’t been revealed yet. But (I think) there’s no need to expose these, because fans won’t believe it. They’ll say the photos are photoshopped and the faces in the clips were switched using AI technology. I don’t think there’s a need to waste time with them,” the influencer said.
The young lady was also asked on whether the former EXO member has been always especially “cautious” at all times. According to her, “They will collect all the mobile phones at his drinking parties, not allowing any video recording or photo taking. When I was lying on the bed with him, he would also take my phone away.”
Du further added that several other victims also reached out to her soon after she came up with her lengthy statement on Weibo. It is said that they have provided more evidence on the case and are willing to cooperate with Du in case she needs their help. At the same time, she repeatedly emphasised that she’s not doing this just to gain cheap publicity.
So what does she expects from the prolonged issue at hand? As stated by the college student herself, she only wants Wu and the team to apologise to her. However, Du said that the label has never reached out to her and apologised. She also said that she has yet to receive the lawsuit papers that Wu’s legal team claimed that they would be initiating.
When asked about whether she’s afraid with the “Growl” singer’s legal team claims saying that they had “gathered all the evidence”, Du responded, “They don’t have the evidence. They’re just doing it for show. I have all the proof.”
She then added, “I went to ask a police officer about the case. They said that the evidence needs to be organised and to think further about on what grounds to be used to report the case. Are we filing a lawsuit against them for fraud or sexual assault?” She also said that she will not surrender unless he repents and apologises.
Du also went into detail about Wu’s alleged grooming tactics. She shared, “He would come up with the same excuses – selecting female leads for MVs or signing them to become an artist under his label – to manipulate them to come out. After awhile, they would no longer discuss about work, and the girls would be ushered to his drinking parties, forcing them to get drunk, and then sexual intercourse happens.”
“This is considered fraudulent behaviour because people lose consciousness after they are intoxicated. I was deceived by him (Wu) and got drunk. Following that, he said that he’ll be responsible and will always be with me. And then this is what’s happening right now. He pretended not to know me and acted like I’m a stranger; accusing me of trying to gain clout out of nowhere,” she continued.
Du also said that she blindly trusted Wu because he promised to shower her with gifts, pick her up and take her to places.
Update (13th July, 6pm):
Despite not releasing any official statement to address the matter, a fan of Kris Wu is insisting that the “Tian Di” singer is actually innocent. In addition, the female fan shared her opinion about the recent controversy and questioned Du Meizhu’s actions so far.
