Taylor Swift Expected To Testify At Groping Trial
Taylor Swift is expected to take the stand in a Denver courtroom this week at a civil trial involving her and a man she accused of assault.
The bad blood between the singer and radio host David Mueller began in June 2013 when they posed together during a backstage meet-and-greet at one of her concerts.
Swift alleged that Mueller put his hand under her dress and grabbed her buttocks.
According to court filings, she told her manager, who reported the alleged incident to management at KYGO FM, where Mueller worked. The station later fired him, citing a morality clause in his contract.
Mueller sued Swift, claiming she falsely accused him of groping her and pressured his employer to terminate him.
Swift countersued, alleging assault.
“It was not an accident, it was completely intentional,” she said in a deposition, “and I have never been so sure of anything in my life.”
Mueller, who is seeking $3 million U.S. in damages, denies the allegation. He said the singer should have called police if she felt she had been assaulted.
