Taylor Swift has been making headlines lately for something other than music. The pop star has been in court counter-suing a Denver ex-DJ who allegedly groped her back in 2013 at a meet-and-greet.
The ex-DJ is named David Mueller and he has finally spoken out about these allegations to ABC News. “What I’m saying is I didn’t do what they said,” Mueller explained. “I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt and I can pass a polygraph.”
“I wasn’t invited to be in the photo,” he said. “I just moved into the shot the best I could.”
Mueller first sued Swift in 2015 when he claimed that she falsely accused him of grabbing her butt. He lost his job after she claimed this.
She counter-sued him and had said that Mueller “took his and and put it up my dress.”
On the stand, Swift said, “He did not touch my rib. He did not touch my arm. He did not grab my hand. He grabbed my bare a–.”
It was this past Friday that U.S. District Judge William Martinez threw out the former radio host’s suit against Swift. According to the judge there was not enough evidence to prove that this is what got him fired from his job at a Denver radio station.
Swift, who had only counter-sued for $1, said in a statement after the verdict that her trial was a fight for “anyone silenced by sexual assault.”
“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.”
Mueller said he may plan to appeal the court’s ruling and has claimed that he has passed two polygraph exams.
