Spotted: Former EXO member Kris Wu holding hands with a mystery woman

Even a bucket hat and a face mask could not hide Kris Wu's identity when he was out and about with a female companion.

The former EXO member was reportedly spotted by fans at a carpark holding hands with a mystery woman today (Aug 30).

According to various media accounts, Kris alighted from a car, walked towards the young woman and grabbed hold of her hand before heading back to his place.

The woman reportedly seemed happy and looked very much in love, but was also quite shy as she stayed close to Kris and even attempted to hide her face.

After images of the pair surfaced online, internet sleuths identified Kris' alleged new girlfriend as 21-year-old Qinniu Zhengwei, a Chinese student at the Beijing Film Academy.

Zhengwei is said to be schoolmates with Chinese actors Leo Wu and Song Zu'er while actress Guan Xiaotong is her senior.

Since the images leaked, Kris' representatives have yet to comment.

Similarly, Zhengwei's representatives neither confirmed nor denied the dating rumours, calling it a "private matter".
