7 unapologetically blunt lines from Taylor Swift's testimony

7 unapologetically blunt lines from Taylor Swift's testimony”

Music superstar Taylor Swift told a USA court Thursday of her shock as she realized she was being groped during a photo opportunity in Colorado, as she faced the former DJ she accuses of assaulting her. Swift spoke in front of jurors, telling her version of events today, August 10.

"If you look at that photograph, his hand is not underneath Miss Swift's skirt, and her skirt is not rumpled in any fashion", McFarland said, noting that no one on Swift's concert team saw anything amiss.

Swift, who has 85 million followers on Twitter and 102 million followers on Instagram, earned $170 million in the year to June 2016 following a world tour and her best-selling "1989" album, according to Forbes Magazine.

"It was a definite grab, a very long grab", Swift said under oath from the witness stand in a downtown Denver federal courtroom.

"'Mom, a guy just grabbed my (rear end) in the meet-and-greet, '" Andrea Swift said her daughter told her.

"He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him".

"This is what happened, it happened to me, I know it was him", said Swift, who was 23 at the time of the incident.

After the alleged incident, Swift said she couldn't make eye contact with either Mueller, or his girlfriend at the time, Shannon Melcher, but said to them in a monotone voice, "thanks for coming".

A FORMER radio host accused of groping pop superstar Taylor Swift conceded Wednesday a picture taken during the alleged assault could be interpreted as incriminating.

When asked if she thinks Mueller got what he deserved, Swift said "I don't feel anything about Mr. Mueller". However, Swift's attorney Doug Baldridge argued that the incident did happen and that Mueller was suing for fame and money. Instead, he's seeking whatever the jury sees fit.

Swift maintains he sexually assaulted her by lifting her skirt and fondling her buttocks. Her mother told the court that since the incident at the Pepsi Center, the star has changed how she interacts with fans.

Can't see her tweets? "Swift, Mueller intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission", Taylor's countersuit filed in October 2015 reads.

Taylor Swift has always been a recurring character in show biz drama involving the likes of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, as well as Katy Perry (but not Kendick Lamar), though in recent days, she's turned her attention to more serious allegations.

"Yes, she did not have her hand on my ass", Swift replied. She says she wants to be an example to other assault victims.

Mueller denied the accusations and said Swift's team pressured his employer to fire him. "You can ask me a million questions about it and I'm never going to say anything different".
