The Taylor Swift Groping Legal Drama Will Continue With The Jury On Monday No Matter What Judge Decides On Her Dismissal

We WILL be seeing you all next week! As you surely know, Taylor Swift has been going head to head against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller, in court.

As you surely know, Taylor Swift has been going head to head against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller, in court. In case you forgot, the A-lister has accused Mueller of sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013. Related: Leah Remini Wants Scientology Investigated By The Feds The feud between Mueller and Swift intensified when the disgraced DJ sued Swift for slander and the Blank Space singer responded with a sexual assault and battery countersuit. While the radio professional maintained his innocence throughout the course of the trial, the pop star testified under oath that David "grabbed [her] bare ass." Both Swift and Mueller's legal teams made their cases to the jury this week. In a twist on Friday, Taylor's team asked Judge Martinez to dismiss the case because they never directed Mueller's employer to fire him. After about twenty minutes of deliberation, the judge was unable to come to a conclusion as to whether Taylor should be released from the case and the jury was dismissed -- court will resume with the jury on Monday morning. However, a decision is expected sometime today from the judge on whether or not Taylor will be dismissed from the lawsuit against her: What to expect: Judge's ruling TODAY on releasing @taylorswift13. Regardless of ruling-- On Monday: closing arguments & jury deliberation. — Michael Konopasek (@MikeKonopasek) August 11, 2017 This officially concludes the evidentiary part of the trial and the jury will hear closing arguments next week. Since Taylor countersued, even if she is dismissed, court will have to resume to handle that part of the case. There you have it...for now! [Image via WENN.].....»»

The Most Outrageous Celebrity Demands of Our Time

The contractual rider is a standard part of work for celebrities; it was originally designed to ensure that stars got a meal and something to drink as part of their appearance. However, as time has gone by and the cult of celebrity has increasingly gotten out of hand; celebrities have been cranking up their requirements. This list examines some of the most outrageous celebrity demands of our time: Madonna The original Material Girl is every bit as material as the song she once sang. She’s supposed to require a 200 person entourage as part of her rider. That entourage is designed to cater to her every whim – they include yoga instructors, personal chefs and a legion of bodyguards. She’s also into floral arrangements but they have to be very specific – they must be lilies or roses and they must have their stems cut to an exacting 6 inches long. She also insists upon an on-site dry cleaning service so her costumes can be turned out perfectly once she’s worn them. Jennifer Lopez J-Lo may have the most delectable bottom in the history of pop music but her rider must drive venues insane. She’s apparently appalled by color schemes; there’s a blanket ban on the use of color anywhere in her private off stage area. That means she must have a white room, decorated with white flowers, furnished with white drapes and white couches. She’s also not a fan of cool water as the rider requires access to “tepid water”. Morrissey Morrissey who was in the eighties most influential band “The Smiths” appeared to lose the plot when he headed to the Vina Del Mer festival in 2012. He demanded that every single person who worked at the venue be herded into their offices and then be locked in – so that he wouldn’t have to encounter anyone below his “station”. He also had a jury member thrown out of the festival because he didn’t approve of the way the guy winked at the camera. Weird Al Yankovic When he’s not working on his “comedic” covers of artist like Michael Jackson (the song was “Eat it”) – he’s a huge fan of being badly dressed. His rider, whilst less demanding than many of the other artists on the list, required that each venue furnish him with a brand new Hawaiian shirt at every performance. Apparently, he dropped this requirement after collecting several hundred shirts. Lionel Messi Footballers can be prima donnas too. Lionel “Leo” Messi may be the world’s most beloved soccer player but that doesn’t stop him from going overboard when it comes to his personal demands. The Hotel Serena Suites was required to install a basketball hoop in the bedroom, to provide three Jacuzzis in the bathroom (one had to be cold, the others hot), a personal maid and a swimming pool heated to exactly 28 degrees centigrade. Will Ferrell Not to be outdone by the sports stars and pop starts of this world; acting talent likes to be overly-entitled when it comes to their demands [...].....»»

Taylor Swift Announces Charity Donations For Sexual Assault Victims In Statement After Groping Trial Verdict

Now that Taylor Swift has won her trial, she has a message for her supporters — one of pure gratitude. First the Shake It Off singer takes a moment to thank everyone who helped her, writing: "I want to thank Judge William J.

Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support through this four-year ordeal and two year long trial process." But Taylor didn't stop by making it about herself. She made a point of mentioning all the assault victims who don't have a voice -- and what she would be doing to help change that: "I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard. Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves." The only thing that would be better is if it was David Mueller's money going to those organizations. But Taylor's entire payout from winning her case will be a symbolic $1.

Taylor Swift's trial against radio show host David Mueller for alleged sexual assault made some progress on the second day in court as the jury was selected, opening statements were made, and witnesses began taking the stand. To catch you up, the songstress claims the former on-air personality "reached up under my skirt and grabbed my ass right when I was having to pose for a photo" back in 2013. The Denver DJ hit back by accusing the singer of slander, and Tay then counter sued David for sexual assault and battery. What a mess. Related: Taylor Wins A Small Victory In Groping Case! During Swift's lawyer's opening statement on Tuesday, the attorney argued the 27-year-old was "taking a stand for all women" and that "this is a case of sexual assault in the workplace": "A woman is assaulted. She reports it and she gets sued … it doesn't make sense. She's trying to tell people out there that you can say no when someone grabs you no matter who they are." He went on to accuse Mueller of targeting the songstress three times: "He grabbed her rear, he victimized her by filing this lawsuit, and now he wants her to pay." Andrea Swift, Tay's mom, was visibly upset during the statement -- and she is expected to later testify during the nine-day trial. Mueller's attorney asserted his client didn't inappropriately touch Taylor, and insisted his career has been destroyed as a result of the accusations. Mueller was the first witness called to the stand -- where he said once again under oath that he did not grope the celeb when he hopped into the controversial photo. He recalled being kicked out of Swift's concert by her tour manager. More details to come as the trial continues... [Image via ATP/WENN.].....»»

In an interview with Fox-31 Denver, the artist explains the 27-year-old is just too damn "pretty" to draw properly! "A person like Taylor Swift, who is very pretty, who has perfectly proportioned dimensions on the face, is actually much harder [to draw]... Everybody's got little idiosyncrasies about them that you want to pick up on... It's hard. Some people are just much easier to draw than others... If you give me somebody with a beard and glasses -- bingo -- got it." Kandyba knew his sketches would be seen by millions, so he made sure to practice before the trial took place. "It made me very nervous going into it... That's why I did practice sketches ahead of time." Additionally, Jeff thinks his cynics need to cut him some slack! Not only is he "35 feet away" from Swift, drawing one of the world's most famous singers is no walk in the park! He told Westword: "I'm probably sitting 35 feet away from her looking through binoculars—and if you've ever tried to draw anything looking through binoculars, it's not the easiest thing in the world. You go more for resemblance, and hopefully you can at least get that... I don't think you can ever draw a personality like Taylor Swift well enough to have everybody go out and say, 'That's great.'" In the words of TayTay, haters gonna hate, hate, hate! [Image via Michael Konopasek/Twitter.].....»»
