Kris Wu has since then denied the allegations, while the China State Media requested an investigation on the ongoing scandal.

According to Chinese police in the Chaoyang district of Beijing on July 22, they concluded in their investigation that the allegations were a result of three different schemes to commit fraud and malign Kris Wu.

Du Meizhu's posts were videos and screenshots of what appears to be money that she had received from accounts owned by Kris Wu and his mother.

The male, who is identified as "Liu," saw the scandal online and had contacted Du Meizhu to gather information, which allowed him to pretend to be her lawyer. Liu then contacted Kris Wu's mother to send Du Meizhu 500,000 yuan ($77,000 USD). He later pretended to be Kris Wu's lawyer to try and extort money from Du Meizhu.

Police said that Liu was unsuccessful in getting an additional 2.5 million yuan ($390,000 USD). He was arrested back on July 18 in Nantong after Kris Wu's mother had reported to the police of the fraud. In addition, there was also no indication that Du Meizhu was part of the fraud.

According to the police, they have interrogated the suspects and interviewed the involved parties, as well as taking in witness accounts, documentary evidences, and electronic evidences to gather findings.

Du Meizhu Responds to Investigation Findings

Following the publicizing of the investigation findings, Du Meizhu posted on her Weibo to share that she has become exhausted with the investigation and attention and hopes it will end soon.

She then refutes several points in the findings.

According to police findings, Du Meizhu had attended a casting call for an upcoming music video organized by Kris Wu's agent, "Feng." She later went to a party at Krus Wu's house where 10 other people had drank and played drinking games. Du Meizhu is said to have stayed in the evening after getting drunk and has sexual intercourse with Kris Wu. Leaving the next morning, Du Meizhu had kept in touch with Kris Wu since.

Du Meizhu refutes the findings, stating that Feng had used the casting call as a means to bring her to Kris Wu's house, where she was pushed into the latter's bed. Kris Wu had sent her money, but Du Meizhu is in the process of returning the money and stated that she has never committed any fraud.

Du Meizhu adds that because Feng was a woman, she didn't take precautions and got into the car with her. Only when she had arrived at Kris Wu's house did she realize it wasn't a meeting to discuss work.

According to the young Chinese influencer, she had low alcohol tolerance, but the people at the house kept giving her alcohol, which caused her to even vomit and lose consciousness. Feng later took her to Kris Wu's bedroom. Du Meizhu emphasized that she did not want to go there, nor did she stay there on purpose.

Whatever you want to say is fine, I don't care. Maybe there isn't an outcome that will please everyone. But I have tried my best," said Du Meizhu.

Meanwhile, if Kris Wu is found guilty of the allegation, he may face a death sentence according to China's laws.
