Although Wu was denounced by the authorities, they also accused the celebrity of additional offenses. On Friday, officials fined him a total of 600 million yuan ($84 million) for tax evasion, in addition to his sentence.

Wu Yifan (WU YI FAN) in 2019-2020 used a fictitious company to change the nature of income to make false statements.

Several foreign subsidiaries concealed personal income and other tax evasion of 95 million yuan and other unpaid taxes of 84 million yuan.

In accordance with the relevant laws and regulations, the Second Inspection Bureau of the Beijing Municipal Tax Bureau required Wu Yifan to pay taxes, late fees and fines totaling 600 million yuan.”

Earlier in July 2021, 18-year-old beauty influencer Du Meizhu filed charges against Wu.

An influencer accused the singer’s actor on social media of raping her on a date when she was only 17 and under the influence of alcohol. Du later accused Wu of these crimes, and he did the same with other young women.

Du Meizhu accused Kris Wu of flirting with underage girls on Weibo, where a Chinese student stated after receiving harassment and death threats from Kris Wu fans.

She then added that Kris Wu uses a different WeChat number to communicate with underage women.

Du stresses that speaking on behalf of underage girls whom Kris Wu has misled, there is no excuse for falsely accusing Kris Wu for attention.

Following these allegations, Kris Wu declared legal action in a statement via his studio. They expressed disbelief that Du Meizhu would go so far as to gain notoriety and vehemently denounce her for malicious defamation, sparking outrage among the public.
