Taylor Swift's bodyguard: 'His hand went under her skirt'

Taylor Swift shaken and humiliated by assault, mom tells trial

Mueller, 55, vehemently denies the allegations.

Mueller attorney Gabriel McFarland said during questioning that Simbeck was making an assumption because Mueller's hand position can not be seen in the photo, which has not been publicly released.

Swift's certainty about the alleged assault was also questioned, but Swift remained steadfast, and stood firmly by her initial statements. "Andrea recalled what Taylor told her, "'Mom, a guy just grabbed my ass at the meet-and-greet".

Baldridge referenced Mueller's testimony from a sworn deposition in which Mueller said being fired in Kansas City had hurt his career. Coomer called it a lie.

Swift is counter-suing for assault and battery, taking the stand overnight to relive the "horrifying and shocking" moment.

Mueller was sacked two days after the June meet and greet. During a 2013 concert in Denver, a DJ called DJ David Mueller posed for a photo with Taylor and his girlfriend. He let Mueller leave the photo booth, he said, because "sometimes (Taylor) said I was too mean". "As a parent it made me question why I taught her to be so polite".

Now, a number of Swift's famous friends and admirers are showing their support for the pop star on social media.

Dent, a large man with a deep voice, testified that he was positioned off to Swift's side during the meet-and-greet, and he watched Mueller and his then-girlfriend Shannon Melcher enter for a photo. In one instance, Swift was asked if she could see the incident directly.

Testimony began on Tuesday and is expected to last nine days. First, that Swift must be lying because she didn't immediately ask for help and move away from her alleged abuser, and second, that she didn't "look" like a victim of assault because she didn't look upset in the photo. "He grabbed my a. underneath my skirt". "We are a big group of creative woman who are supporting her as an artist and we love what she does", she said.

"I'm critical of your client sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my ass", she said frankly, in reply to being asked by Mueller's lawyer Gabriel McFarland whether she was critical of her own security team.


"Gabe, this is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt - with his hand on my a*s", she said.

"I did not want every interview from now on to have to make her include what happened to her".

"He stayed latched on to my bare a** cheek as I lurched away from him", said Swift.

In 2015, Mueller sued Swift, her mother Andrea, and Bell in civil court, claiming that he did not touch her inappropriately and that he lost his job because of a false accusation.

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.

The photographer at the meet-and-greet, Stephanie Simbeck, testified Thursday that she also witnessed the alleged groping.

"It was a definite grab, a very long grab", the 27-year-old pop star said. He said he had no doubt about what happened.

The case is being tried in federal court under a law allowing the proceeding when the parties live in separate states and the dispute involves a damages claim higher than 75,000 dollars (£58,000).

Thursday (August 10) marks day four of Taylor Swift's sexual assault trial against former KYGO radio host David Mueller-and it's arguably the most important one so far. Why?
