Taylor Swift Testifies: Ex-DJ's Groping Was 'Horrifying and Shocking'

Swift said she tried to get as far away from Mueller as she could after the photo was taken, and that she did not say anything because she did not want to disappoint several dozen people waiting in line for photos with her.

To recap, Swift is alleging that Mueller grabbed her butt from under her skirt when they were taking a photo together during a meet-and-greet in 2013 (TMZ has the photo of when the alleged assault took place). Mueller sued Swift two years later for $3 million, claiming her allegations were false. According to Swift, the photo is a "smoking gun".

Frank Bell, the Grammy Award-winning chart-topper's radio liason, backed up Swift's version of events, what she said to him immediately after the photo session.

Mr Dent explained he did not act because "he didn't sense danger after he touched her", and Ms Swift did not signal that he should intervene. Her answers were direct, stern, and unwavering. But they do want others to know "that you can always say no".

Swift countersued, claiming Mueller sexually assaulted her.

"Do you think Mueller got what he deserved?" his attorney Gabriel McFarland asked. Her mother, Andrea Swift, testified Wednesday that the singer's management wanted to keep the matter out of the public eye.

Swift repeatedly said no one else could have groped her.

In a deposition, Swift said that Mueller "took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my a- cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there".

On the other hand, Douglas Baldridge, Swift's attorney, accused Mr Mueller of having given seven accounts of the incident, while he also accused the DJ of destroying taped conversations with his bosses about the alleged crime.

"[Mueller] had a handful of my ass", Swift said. It was a very shocking thing that I have never dealt with before ... "Here we are years later, and I'm being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are the product of his decisions - not mine", she said, words that have drawn massive support for her on social media.

(5) McFarland argued Swift's skirt showed no signs of disruptment. "Because", Swift replied, "my ass is located in the back of my body". I felt what appeared to be a ribcage or rib. She said: "He saw your client lift my skirt, that's when your clients hand went out of his view because it was grabbed onto my a** cheek".

She also refused to take the blame for Mueller being fired from his job after the alleged assault. Mueller testified he did not grope Swift.

Taylor Swift is in court again but this time she isn't on the jury, she's the plaintiff. "I never have said anything different", she said. I know exactly who did this.

He says the photo shows Swift trying to move away from Mueller. "I am not going to allow your my client to make me feel like it is anyway my fault because it isn't", she said.
