The court said the three victims in the rape case had also been drunk and could not consent.
It said a combined 13-year sentence was agreed on, and Wu would be immediately deported after serving his time.
“According to the facts … the nature, circumstances and harmful consequences of the crime, the court made the above judgment,” the court said in an online statement.
A Canadian diplomat was in court to hear the sentencing, it said.
Wu was also slapped with a fine of 600 million yuan ($83.7 million) for evading taxes by massively underreporting his earnings from performances, advertisements, and other sources of income.

Wu “used a fake business to convert the nature of his income and falsely declare it, and evaded 95 million yuan of tax by concealing personal income through multiple domestic and overseas affiliated companies,” state news agency Xinhua reported.
The June trial of the 32-year-old former member of the South Korean group EXO was closed to the public to protect the victims’ privacy.
Wu has been detained since August 2021 while police investigated response to comments online that he “repeatedly lured young women” to have sex, according to a police statement.
That year, a teenager accused him of having sex with her while she was drunk. Wu, known in Chinese as Wu Yifan, denied the accusation.
The teenager then said seven other women contacted her to say Wu seduced them with promises of jobs and other opportunities. She said some were under 18.
Rape is punishable by three to 10 years in prison, although exceptional cases can result in harsher sentences up to death. The second charge Wu faced is punishable by up to five years in prison.
