Kris Wu Releases Legal Statement About Malicious Rumors

Rising actor Kris Wu (吴亦凡) has issued a statement by his lawyers to warn that legal action will be used against the perpetrators who have spread unfounded rumors about him around the Internet in the past week.

The 25-year-old Guangzhou native, also a former Chinese member of the K-pop boy group EXO, was subjected to a series of negative reports that slandered his reputation in the past week.

The incident started on the morning of June 14th, when a Weibo user known by the name of “Little G-Na” shared a few screen captures of a suspicious WeChat conversation on her blog. In the post, she claimed that Kris had just “disappeared on [her]” and demanded an answer from him. In her message, she implied that she was Kris’ girlfriend, saying, “Even if you wanted a breakup, you should at least say it.”

A while later, another netizen known as “Love Fan theway” revealed two pictures of a man who resembles Kris, sleeping on her bed. The WeChat conversation and the two photos were widely spread online, including various audio clips. In these rumors, it was suggested that Kris had dated and slept with multiple women.

After nearly two days of silence from Kris’ camp, the actor and his team released two official statements on the evening of June 16th. The first one was an announcement that Kris has signed with Jackie Chan’s (成龍) agency, Sparkle Roll Media. The second is a legal statement issued by his lawyers, which stated that it would take legal action against the defamers.

The statement said the suspicious media that had been spreading online were all fabricated, misleading, and edited. Kris’ lawyers said the content all appeared to have been released in an extremely coordinated manner, with a “higher than average” performance. The statement proceeded to name the Weibo users involved in spreading the misinformation, expressing that they have crossed the boundaries of free speech and violated laws. The firm has already contacted authorities about the incident, and will follow regular reporting procedures.

While many fans came forth to support Kris, some netizens were not so impressed. One netizen pointed out the awkward timing between the rumors and Kris’ official signing with Sparkle Roll Media, saying, “It now makes sense why [a statement] wasn’t released earlier. He was in the midst of changing teams. This was probably a good time to spread rumors about him.”

Another netizen was skeptical about something else entirely. It said, “I feel that this statement isn’t very convincing. If none of that actually happened, why didn’t they sue Little G-Na?” Another said, “They didn’t even show proof that it wasn’t true.”

    Now I see what Daniel Wu meant by flowers boy. This dude is wearing too much makeup. He does look like a girly guy. The timing of the rumors is coincidental. I do not want to say this is done to garner publicity. If these women are lying, I hope they catch and punish them. This sort of media is not good for any celebrity, or anyone in general. If it is true, then it would expose that Kris is not the pure virginal angel that these Asian idols like their fans to believe them to be. No wonder the girls get all delusional, thinking they can capture their hearts, and their virginity.

        @m0m0 I can be wrong but he looks like a girl with short hair. His facial structure is very effeminate. Momo, there are still a lot of agencies selling the clients as virgins, and some very well may be, and unfortunately, a lot of fans are buying it.

        @m0m0 actually a lot of younger fans still buy the crap of the idol image. Believing they are still virgin. And when a scandal breaks they go crazy.

        @happybi Yep, these fans are devoted to a T. I remember the Athens Chu debacle. Shse preached the virgin route when she and Paul were having bed fun more than married people
        When the sleepover news hit the airways, she denied and the fans attacked like sharks. They were ready to strangle anyone who dared to question Athena’s innocence. There were many others too, and they got caught. Maybe if Kris is a cad, he will be caught. If he is innocent, may he be justified.

        I still cant believe that people buys that nonsense. I mean, just look at the current generation, half of the population is probably no longer virgins by age 13 so i do not get why younger fans would believe that their idol celebrities are still virgins.

        Crazy fans are the scariest! lol

        @akinu you got that right. It is not just just the Asian fans who buy the malarkey. This things is all over the globe. There are fans who believe that Kim Kardashian never had plastic surgery, or she never got her backside stuffed with fat to enlarge it. Hahaha

      It’s Lu Han who really looks like a girl. Chris looks more manly without the pancake makeup. Both were former members of EXO.

        i agree that luhan looks more like a girl. kris looks pretty masculine to me since he’s so tall and he pretty much dwarfs everybody else. i really don’t know if there are people who are innocent to believe that their idols are just so pure. even when aaron was saying all the crap about abstinence when he was in his idol days and i was in my teens, i never bought into that. nevertheless seeing him on screen with another female star was uncomfortable. or maybe i am just an old fart.
