Taylor Swift's ex-bodyguard testifies he saw DJ reach under her skirt

Swift said the groping occurred as she posed with Mueller and his girlfriend for a photo.

Taylor Swift's former bodyguard was standing just a few feet away from the pop star, former DJ David Mueller and his then-girlfriend during a June 2, 2013 meet-and-greet at the Pepsi Center that's become the center of a legal battle more than four years later. According to Swift, the photo is a "smoking gun". Swift also testified that it was not possible that anyone but Mueller groped her. There is a bias already because we often think, "If she really was assaulted, why didn't she speak up, why didn't she call him out immediately?" Her answers were direct, stern, and unwavering. "Did you ask yourself why Mr. Mueller would do something like this?"

According to the lawsuit, Swift claimed that David Mueller, who was sacked from KYGO pursuant to Swift's allegations, groped her during a pre-show meet & greet event. She testified that "this was something I did not want known". Swift also says that her suit is less about her and more about speaking out for women who are sexually assaulted and don't feel comfortable coming forward. But he insists he was touching Swift in her ribs, not her rear, as she alleges in the groping case.

Dent said during cross-examination that this was the first time something like this had happened to Swift, and that since, he has asked men at meet-and-greets to "keep their hands up high".

"He had a handful of my ass. I had never dealt with something like this before", Swift said.

Concluding his testimony on Wednesday, he said: "I'm here to prove that I'm innocent".

(5) McFarland argued Swift's skirt showed no signs of disruptment.

When Mueller called her "cold". I felt what appeared to be a ribcage or rib. "He did not touch my arm, He did not touch my hand", Swift stated, "He grabbed my bare a**". Mueller testified he did not grope Swift.

David Mueller maintains his stance that the allegation against him is false.

The defendant however denies the allegation and went ahead to sue Taylor in 2015 for attempting to mar his reputation, and also cost him his job at the radio station KYGO where he worked. Eventually, though, Swift did complain, and Dent tracked down Mueller at the event.

She testified guard Greg Dent saw David Mueller "lift my skirt" and grab her but that it was it was impossible for anyone to see Mueller's hand beneath her skirt and on her buttock because they were posing for the photo with their backs to a wall. "I got as far away from him as I could". "It was a definite grab, (a) very long grab", the pop star said. I know it was him.

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