Taylor Swift Takes the Stand at Groping Trial, Describes 'Very Long Grab' Under Her Skirt
She testified that former DJ David Mueller "looked like trouble" when he walked in for the meet-and-greet.
Taylor Swift has taken the stand to detail the events leading up to the moment the pop superstar was allegedly groped by a former radio DJ during a 2013 meet-and-greet.
“I felt him grab onto my bare ass under my skirt,” she told the jury Thursday. “At first I thought it was a mistake... He stayed latched onto my bare ass cheek as I lurched away.”
Wearing a black floral dress with her hair tied in a bun, the "Blank Space" singer spoke in court about Robert Mueller, and the moment he entered the meet-and-greet.
“It was a definite grab, a very long grab,” she said.
She claimed he had showed signs of someone who had been drinking a few cocktails before he came into the room.
Mueller’s lawyer questioned Swift about her bodyguard's response, and she testified, “It happened very quickly.”
Mueller tesitifed he did nothing wrong.
Swift said she didn’t call for help right away because of the long line of fans waiting to meet her. She said she didn’t want to ruin their night by making a scene.
“I am being blamed for the product of his decisions, not mine,” she said.
In 2015, Mueller sued Swift, her mom, and her radio promotions director for up to $3 million in damages, claiming the accusations cost him his job at KYGO radio in Denver.
Swift countersued with allegations of sexual assault and is requesting $1 in damages.
