"Wu Yifan took advantage of three drunken women ... at his home," the court, in the district of Chaoyang, said on its official WeChat account. Wu was detained on July 31 last year after an 18-year-old Chinese student publicly accused him of inducing her and other girls, including minors, to have sex with him.

Following the reports about his sexual crimes, several big brands including Louis Vuitton, Porsche, French beauty brand Lancôme, German brand Tempo, food brand Master Kong, platform Tencent Video, kitchen appliance manufacturer Vatti, haircare brand Seeyoung, and EtherealSound cut ties with him.

As per the report, the court also found him guilty of the crime of assembling a crowd to engage in sexual promiscuity in July 2018, it said. Moreover, the disgraced popstar is also found guilty of tax evasion of a total of 179 million yuan from 2019 to 2020, and faces a fine of 600 million yuan.

Wu evaded 95 million yuan of tax from 2019 to 2020 by hiding personal income through domestic and foreign affiliated enterprises, and underpaid taxes of 84 million yuan, according to reports.
