Taylor Swift Testifies On Day Four Of Her Groping Trial: "He Grabbed My Bare Ass"

Taylor Swift is standing her ground. On Thursday, the Blank Space singer took the stand to give testimony in the groping trial against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller. As you likely know, the A-lister has accused Mueller of sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in [...] Taylor Swift is standing her ground. On Thursday, the Blank Space singer took the stand to give testimony in the groping trial against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller. As you likely know, 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 controversy took a messy turn when the scandalized DJ sued Swift for slander, but the hitmaker hit back with a sexual assault and battery countersuit. While David has denied the butt grabbing allegations, Taylor's testimony paints an entirely different picture. Under oath, the pop star stated that the action was "a definite grab." The chart topper continued: "It was a definite grab, [a] very long grab. It was long enough for me to be completely sure it was intentional. He stayed on my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him uncomfortably. The first couple of milliseconds, I thought it must be a mistake. I moved to the side very quickly... It was a very shocking thing that I have never dealt with before…He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt. It was underneath my skirt." When asked if David touched her at any other point during the meet and greet, the 27-year-old reiterated that the radio professional was "too busy grabbing her ass under her skirt to touch her anywhere else." What a horrible scenario. On how she reacted to the incident, Taylor explained: "After this happened, a light switched off in my personality. I just said in a monotone voice thank you for coming and then they were gone." We're sure she was in shock. Not to mention, Calvin Harris' ex defended that she didn't stop the meet and greet as she didn't want to ruin the experience for other fans patiently waiting. The Grammy winner went on to call the groping incident a particularly "devious and sneaky act" because there was a wall behind her, leaving her with no witnesses. When pressed as to why no one else saw the grab, Taylor hit back with: "Your client could have taken a normal photo with me." You tell 'em, girl! Thankfully, a photographer captured the moment where Taylor seemingly reacted to the alleged assault. Apparently, Taylor had the following conversation with the photographer: "I said, 'That dude just grabbed my ass,' and she said 'I know exactly which one you are talking about I have the pic.'" Per Swift, her bodyguard did not intervene as the situation "was horrifying, shocking, and [one they] had never experienced before." The blonde songstress is confident in her account of what occurred as David and his girlfriend seemed intoxicated at the time of the meet and greet. Related: Usher Denies Having Sex With Herpes Accuser Quantasia Sharpton! Also, this moment stood out for her as it was different than any other experience she has had with a fan. Swift specified: "I have experienced every awkward encounter.. this was not jostling. we were perfectly in position for the photograph to be taken... He did not touch my rib, he did not touch my hand, he grabbed my bare ass." In regards to Mueller getting fired following their meeting, Taylor has little sympathy for the industry vet as she retorted: "I am not going to allow your my client to make me feel like it is anyway my fault because it isn't." Although Taylor claims to have no opinion about David as a person, she says she feels what he did was "despicable." When asked by David's attorney if the grab could've been done by someone else, Taylor quipped: "He had a handful of my ass. I know it was him... I wouldn't need that photograph. I could have picked him out of a line of a thousand." Oh snap! Mueller's lawyer then went on to ask Taylor about her love of "police shows," to which she acknowledged: "Yesss! I named my cat after Olivia Benson on Law & Order." We're sorry, WHAT is the point of this question?? Just because someone loves crime procedurals doesn't mean they want to experience court drama IRL. Unsurprisingly, the lawyer pivoted away from this line of questioning and once again asked Taylor if she should look at other photos from the event. Clearly frustrated with the line of questioning, the starlet relayed: "I know exactly who did this, this is what happened. It happened to me. I know it was him." Another sassy moment from the testimony came when the opposing counsel asked if Taylor could see the incident with her own eyes and she said she couldn't as her "ass is in the back of [her] body." Girl, we'd be so done too. After a little under an hour on the stand, Mueller's lawyer concluded his questioning and Taylor's attorney announced he had no questions to ask. Miz Swift has since been excused from the stand. Be sure to stay tuned for any updates about the trial HERE. [Image via WENN.].....»»

Taylor Swift Is Way Too "Pretty" To Draw, According To Criticized Courtroom Sketch Artist

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.].....»»

On Friday, the 27-year-old singer's sexual assault lawsuit against the Denver DJ (who is denying all accusations and suing Tay for slander) continued with more testimonies from both sides of the aisle. First to take the stand was Swift's bodyguard Gregory Dent, who allegedly witnessed the incident first hand back in 2013. Related: Lena Dunham Sings Taylor's Praises! According to BuzzFeed News, Dent told the court he "knows" he saw Mueller put his hand under Taylor's skirt before taking the now-infamous photo. He went on to add: "I didn't do anything because sometimes she said I was a little too mean ... I can't tell you how long his hand was there. I just can tell you he put his hand under her skirt, she pushed it down, and jumped." When Mueller's attorney asked Dent why he didn't do anything after seeing what happened, the security professional said: "I take my cues from her and she continued with the photo." The next person to take the stand was Mueller's former KYGO co-host Ryan Kliesch, who said he had never witnessed the DJ being disrespectful to women. It only takes once, buddy. Anyway, next up on the stand was Mueller's ex-girlfriend Shannon Melcher, who was also pictured in the meet and greet photo with Swift and Mueller. Melcher testified that "the photo happened very quickly" and she wasn't "paying attention to what [Mueller] was doing." She explained: "I did not, of course I was facing forward, I don't have eyes in the back of my head." Channeling her inner Swift sass, we see! The trial is ongoing. More details to come...

A photo posted by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on Dec 30, 2015 at 4:17pm PST It’s rumored that ‘Out of the Woods’ is about Taylor’s romance with Harry Styles. Taylor said she wrote the song “to track,” meaning that Jack Antoff sent her the track and the lyrics and melody came to her “immediately, in full.” Taylor explained how Jack’s track affected her: It just kind of conjured up all these feelings of anxiety I had in a relationship where everybody was watching, everybody was commenting on it. You’re constantly just feeling like, ‘Are we out of the woods yet? What’s the next thing gonna be? What’s the next hurdle we’re gonna have to jump over? Are we gonna make it to next week?’ It was interesting to write about a relationship where you’re just honestly like, ‘This is probably not gonna last, but how long is it gonna last?’ Those fragile relationships…It doesn’t mean they’re not supposed to happen. The whole time we were having happy memories or crazy memories or ridiculously anxious times, in my head it was just like, ‘Are we OK yet? Are we there yet? Are we out of this yet?'” I’m sure the ‘Out Of the Woods’ video will be just as big as all of Taylor’s other videos! Photos by FAMEFLYNET.....»»

Taylor Swift"s Groping Trial: Day Three Recap

On Wednesday, Taylor Swift posted up in court once again to face off with the Denver DJ, David Mueller, who she claims "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013. The radio show host has since accused the singer of slander, to which she counter-sued him for sexual assault and battery. Today started off [...] On Wednesday, Taylor Swift posted up in court once again to face off with the Denver DJ, David Mueller, who she claims "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013. The radio show host has since accused the singer of slander, to which she counter-sued him for sexual assault and battery. Today started off with a 45-minute sidebar conference without any press present in the court room before Mueller was cross-examined by Swift's attorney, Doug Baldridge. Baldridge attacked Mueller's claim that Swift's accusations "rendered him unemployable" -- when in fact, the personality only submitted himself for 20 jobs in the top markets. Mueller agreed there are "around 200" markets across the U.S. Related: Amber Rose Seeking Restraining Order Against Wiz Khalifa's Mom! The attorney also added that Swift intentionally did not go public with what happened initially after the incident -- and that it was Mueller's own actions that got him fired from KYGO. Later, Mueller's lawyer Gabe McFarland asked his client to describe the moment the infamous picture was taken once again -- to which he responded: "I was several feet away from the girls — I'm sorry, ladies — and because I'm a larger man, I thought it best to close my hand so as to not poke Taylor." Meanwhile, T.Swift -- who wore a cream-colored dress and black blazer -- sat there intently listening and taking notes after everything Mueller said. Slay, bb. McFarland concluded: "Mueller has been hurt and wants his good name back and he wants to be fairly compensated for income he lost and ability to earn income in the future." Next up, Taylor's mom, Andrea, took the stand. The singer's momma said she was disgusted when she heard her famous daughter's account of what happened: "I was upset to the point where I wanted to vomit and cry at the same time ... We absolutely wanted to keep it private but we did not want him to get away with it." She later pointed at Mueller, emotionally saying: "I knew what happened. I heard it directly from my daughter's mouth ... He sexually assault her right there that guy." Wow! Stay tuned as this trial is ongoing... [Image via mpiPGSK/Media Punch.].....»»

Everything You Need To Know About Day Two Of Taylor Swift"s Groping Trial

Day two.

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.].....»»

Following her big win, Miz Swift announced she'd be donating a certain sum to charities that aid survivors of sexual assault. Related: Taylor Showers Denver Crafts Company With Flowers! Well, the A-lister has already made good on her promise as she made an undisclosed, but "generous" contribution to the Joyful Heart Foundation. On the Blank Space singer's act of generosity, a spokesperson for the charity told E! News: "Joyful Heart is honored to be recognized by Taylor Swift for our work on behalf of and in service to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse." We can't say we're surprised to learn that Swift donated to the Joyful Heart Foundation as it's the charity founded by Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star Mariska Hargitay. In case you forgot, TayTay is a HUGE L&O:SVU fan -- we mean, she even named her cat Detective Olivia Benson after Hargitay's character. Mariska was also in Taylor's Bad Blood music video. We're sure Hargitay is more than grateful for the donation. The industry vet even teased the hitmaker's donation earlier this week as she wrote on Twitter: Leading takes courage -- @taylorswift13 is leading with her voice, with fearlessness, and aplomb. Thank you for allowing #Justice to be had. — Mariska Hargitay (@Mariska) August 15, 2017 We couldn't have said it better ourselves!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»
