Kris Wu has been sentenced to 13 years in prison by a Beijing court for charges that include the rape of three women, The Associated Press reports. The Chaoyang District court ruled that the Chinese Canadian pop star and actor, as well as others implicated in the case, supplied three women with alcohol in 2020 and raped them when they could no longer consent. Most of the 13-year sentence stems from that incident, but he also received one year and 10 months for a 2018 event where he “assembled a crowd” and assaulted two women they got drunk.

Wu will be deported after completing his sentence, the court said. He was fined 600 million yuan ($83.7 million) for evading taxes.

Wu, a former member of K-pop band Exo and one of China’s most popular artists, is among the highest-profile figures to be punished for allegations arising from the #MeToo movement. When the allegations surfaced, he lost major deals with brands including Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Porsche, and L’Oréal.
