Kris Wu Loses Brand Endorsements Following Du Meizhu’s Latest Interviewjessie tan
Things have certainly escalated since a woman named Du Meizhu accused Chinese-Canadian singer-actor Kris Wu Yifan of using different methods to lure underaged girls. At the time, his team immediately responded with a lawyer’s letter stating their intention to take legal action against her false statements. It’s been over a week since then and Du Meizhu claps back with more revelations.
Claims That Kris Wu’s Side Offered to Pay for Her Silence
Continuing to speak out through social media in the past few days, Du Meizhu reveals that she has already filed a police report but has yet to file a lawsuit because she is waiting for the other party to make a move first. She also uploaded a video containing screenshots of chat conversations where someone from Kris’s team allegedly reached out to her to settle out of court. She says she asked for CNY 8 million. They offered her CNY 1 million and eventually settled on CNY 2 million after negotiating the terms. She posted their alleged settlement agreement which states that she would refrain from blackmailing or resorting to any method that will bring harm to the other party (assumed to be Kris Wu). The agreement also included 7 other parties as Du Meizhu has previously stated that she was in touch with other girls in a similar situation as her. Nonetheless, she ultimately told Kris’s team that she won’t settle.
Du Meizhu also uploaded a video with screenshots of another alleged Kris Wu staff informing her that a payment of CNY 500,000 has been made to her account. She shared the alleged receipts showing amounts of CNY 200K from “Wu Yifan” and CNY 300k from “Wu Stacey Yu.” She claims the money was transferred to her account without her knowledge to pressure her into accepting the deal.
