Two weeks ago, a 19-year-old Chinese student publicly accused that Wu had raped her when she was 17 after plying her with drinks.
The 30-year-old star denied the accusations, said on Weibo, "I only met this woman once on Dec. 5, 2020 while with a group of friends… I declare I have never done anything like ‘selecting concubines,’ coercing women into sex, drugging people to rape them, or engaging with underage girls! "
"If there really had been this behavior, I would certainly willingly go to jail." Said Wu. 

The former member of K-pop group EXO made his Hollywood debut in the 2017 sci-fi film "XXX: Return of Xander Cage." 

Following the rape accusations, all 15 brands including Louis Vuitton, Porsche, and Bulgari, who worked with Wu, had cut ties with him.
