Taylor Swift Testifies In Court; Says The Groping Incident Left Her Horrified

Taylor Swift Testifies In Court; Says The Groping Incident Left Her Horrified

Singer Taylor Swift has testified for the first time against a former DJ accused of groping her.

Testimony has resumed in a civil trial over whether Taylor Swift was groped by a former radio DJ.

He says he did not grope Taylor Swift, he may have accidentally touched her ribs getting into the photo, but he did not grab her.

Swift is asking for $1 in her countersuit, according to Buzzfeed, which describes the amount as a "symbolic gesture" meant to inspire other women to stand up for themselves.

"I knew what happened, I heard it from her, I heard it from my daughter's mouth", she said. She declined to speculate how long the incident lasted. Andrea Swift is a co-defendant in his lawsuit.

Swift countersued Mueller, claiming sexual assault.

The pop superstar testified for about an hour on Thursday, sometimes using unflinching language in giving her account of what happened.

Reporter Amanda Zitzman, who was in the courtroom, tweeted that Swift said that Mueller and his girlfriend seemed inebriated during the 2013 meet-and-greet, saying, "It appeared to me that the two of them had a few cocktails".

I'm not a Taylor Swift fan but I'm now loving how she's standing up for herself in court. A woman gets assaulted, a woman reports it, and she gets sued.

Mueller initiated the litigation, arguing that Swift had fabricated the story and put pressure on KYGO to fire him from his $150,000-a-year job.

"This is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt with his hand on my ass. I just said in a monotone, 'Thank you for coming'".

Swift was called as a witness by the attorney representing Mueller.

"Wednesday's testimony was delayed while the judge held a closed hearing with both sides to discuss unspecified evidence".

She rejected Mueller's claim that their interaction was basic "jostling" for a photo and dismissed the possibility that she had misidentified Mueller.

Simbeck said she knew something was wrong as she shot the photo.

In a prior deposition, Mueller admitted that this can't have helped his ability to have a career in radio.

Fox News reporter Michael Konopasek, meanwhile, noted that elements of Swift's testimony were "heartbreaking" but she "stayed strong throughout".

Mueller claims his knuckles may have touched her ribs, well above where his arm is shown.

Mueller is seeking up to $3 million in damages. "Yes!" she exclaimed. "I named my cat after Olivia Benson on Law and Order". Yet four years later, Swift and former DJ David Mueller are embroiled in a widely publicized federal court case. Any other assault victim wouldn't have the luxury of foregoing the amount the court can award in reparation for the crime committed against them.

It wasn't until afterward that Swift told someone else on the team that she thought she had been assaulted and they took action, identifying Mueller from the photograph and notifying his boss at KYGO.
