Taylor Swift testifies in alleged groping trial


(2) McFarland noted that Swift is actually closer to Mueller's girlfriend in the photo. On Thursday she was joined by more family and associates in the presence of her brother Austin Swift and publicist Tree Paine. "I heard it from my daughter's mouth".

Mueller claims in his lawsuit that he is being falsely accused by Swift and he was sacked over her allegation. Coomer called it a lie.

"This is not something that I wanted people to know", she said.

During her testimony, Taylor was asked by David's attorney Gabriel McFarland whether the DJ got "what he deserved". In the photo, Mueller's hand is around her derriere.

Coomer said Mueller was sacked for violating a contract clause that permitted termination in cases of real or perceived behavior that reflected badly on the station.

Taylor Swift has told a court that her alleged assault by DJ David Mueller was "despicable and horrifying".

The case remains underway in federal court in Denver.

The 27-year-old spoke forcefully in Denver, Colorado, as she described what had happened during the incident.

Kliesch testified that Haskell had separately talked to him after their VIP meet-and-greet with Swift.

"I don't know anything about Mr. Mueller".

Swift's reply: "The only person who would have a direct eye line is someone laying underneath my skirt and we didn't have anyone positioned there".

On Wednesday, Mueller testified that the photo-taking experience was "weird and awkward", but insisted he touched Swift's ribs, not her buttocks.

"That's when your client's hand went out of his view because it was grabbed onto my ass cheek". The bodyguard, who worked for Swift from 2008 to the end of the Red tour in 2013, was adamant that it wasn't necessary. She says she and Mueller were rudely confronted and escorted out of the arena that evening.

Taylor Swift's ongoing legal battle with the American DJ who is accused of groping her during a photo opp is coming to a spectacular head, mainly because of the singer's brilliant comebacks.

The singer is in the middle of a sexual assault trial against former radio host David Mueller, and yesterday, she took the stand to testify against him. Swift countersued with allegations of sexual assault, merely asking for a symbolic $1 settlement. She added, "He stayed latched on to my bare ass...as I moved away from him visibly uncomfortable..."

Taylor's attorneys believe the photograph is a "damning" proof of Mueller touching the singer-songwriter inappropriately.

Taylor Swift has taken the witness stand in her lawsuit claiming she was groped by a radio host.

'It was a definite grab.

She said the grab was under her skirt.

Recalling the night, Andrea Swift said her daughter expressed bewilderment that she had "thanked" Mueller and his then-girlfriend after the incident.

But in his opening statement, Mr Baldridge told jurors that Swift is "absolutely certain" she was sexually assaulted by Mueller, and the photo is "damning" proof of it.

Wednesday's testimony highlighted an initial attempt to keep the encounter in Denver out of the spotlight.

Swift, who was 23 at the time, did not file a police report.

Mueller is suing the pop superstar, saying her claim that he groped her during a meet-and-greet in 2013 is false and caused him to be fired.
