I was groped by DJ, superstar Swift tells court

U.S. District Judge William Martinez ordered jurors, spectators and the news media to leave his courtroom Wednesday so Swift's attorneys and lawyers for plaintiff David Mueller could discuss undisclosed evidentiary matters.

But Swift maintained a firm testimony and did not change her story. Coomer called it a lie.

The pop star said she did not say anything to Mueller about it at the time because she did not want fans nearby to hear anything, and that she did not want to cancel the event and disappoint them.

Mueller's attorney Gabriel McFarland asked Dent why he did not intervene if he saw the alleged groping.

Call said he fired the DJ because of his shifting accounts of the incident, and because the photo showed that Mueller's hand was "not where it was supposed to be".

Mueller was sacked by radio station KXGO two days after the 2013 incident and has been unable to find a job since.

"I am not going to allow your my client to make me feel like it is any way my fault because it isn't". Taylor also washed her hands of any responsibility that her telling the KYGO station management about the incident caused Mueller his job, flatly asserting that he alone is responsible for his misfortune by his inappropriate actions against her.

The case remains underway in federal court in Denver.

"Girls" star Lena Dunham, singer Nelly Furtado and actress Ashley Judd tweeted in support of Swift, calling her "fierce" and "powerful" and thanking her for standing up for women.

Swift also testified that a security guard witnessed the alleged groping incident. But he denied the hour-long wait left him disgruntled at Swift. I wasn't going to blame Greg Dent for something Mr Mueller did. He also claimed that it was his then-boss, Eddie Haskell, who actually groped Swift after the 2013 concert and that Haskell bragged about it afterwards.

A number of bodyguards, the sheer respect she receives for her talent, and the love of millions of fans couldn't save the pop singer, Taylor Swift, from the grip of a man who put his hand under her skirt and grabbed her "bare ass".

Taylor Swift has told a court a former radio DJ reached under her skirt and intentionally grabbed her bottom during a meet-and-greet photo session before a 2013 concert in Denver. "It's really easy. You just stand there", she said. She says she and Mueller were rudely confronted and escorted out of the arena that evening. Swift and Mueller's girlfriend, Shannon Melcher, stand close enough that their arms and hands can not be seen.

Mueller filed a lawsuit seeking nearly $3 million in lost and future wages because of "slander" from members of the Swift camp, while Swift has counter-sued for the alleged sexual assault.

Following his dismissal, Mueller sued Swift for defamation, seeking $3m (£2.3 million) in damages. "He stayed latched on as I lurched away from him".

She claimed her photographer witnessed the incident and took a picture of it.

"It was a definite grab ... a very long grab", she said. "I don't know him", Swift replied.

On Wednesday, Andrea Swift delivered dramatic testimony as she described learning about the alleged groping of her daughter.

Swift was 23 at that time while the DJ was 51. "We absolutely wanted to keep this private, but we did not want him to get away with it". "He sexually assaulted her".
