K-Pop star arrested on suspicion of rape

Kris Wu is one of China`s biggest celebrities

Chinese-Canadian pop star Kris Wu has been arrested on suspicion of rape.

Officers in Beijing said the investigation centred on online allegations that the star, 30, had "deceived young women multiple times into having sexual relations".

The first accusation came early this month when a woman said he had assaulted her while she was drunk.

Mr Wu, one of China's biggest celebrities, has denied all the allegations of assault.

The first to accuse him was 19-year-old student Du Meizhu, who posted on social media that she had met Mr Wu when she was 17.

She said she had been invited to a party at his home, where she was pressured to drink alcohol and woke up in his bed the next day.

Ms Du said seven other women had told her Mr Wu had seduced them with promises of jobs and other opportunities. She said some were minors.

At least 24 more women have since come forward alleging inappropriate behaviour.
