Taylor Swift Testifies in Court During Groping Trial: He Grabbed My Bare Ass Cheek

Taylor Swift has officially taken the stand in her trial against former Colorado DJ David Mueller, who she alleges groped her during a photo opp.

*This documentation could be triggering for survivors of sexual assault*

“It was a definite grab. A very long grab…I don’t think it would be wise to estimate time in court, but I know it was long enough for me to be completely sure that it was intentional,” Taylor told David‘s attorney on the stand (via E! News).

“He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek… I felt him grab onto my ass cheek underneath my skirt. The first couple of milliseconds I thought it must be a mistake, so I moved to the side very quickly so that his side would be removed from my ass cheek, but it didn’t let go,” she continued.

“It was a very shocking thing that has never happened to me before. This was not something I had ever dealt with. I got as far away from him as I possibly could,” Taylor continued.

Taylor‘s mom took the stand the day before and broke down discussing what happened to her daughter.

Later, Taylor was asked why the front of her skirt was unruffled in the photo if the DJ’s hand was on her butt and Taylor responded, “Because my ass is located on the back of my body.” The lawyer then said Taylor could have taken a break if she was so taken aback by what happened, and she responded, “Your client could have taken a normal photo with me.”

“I am not going to allow you or your client to make it seem like this is in anyway my fault, because it isn’t,” she continued. “He did not touch my rib, he did not touch my arm, he did not touch my hand, he grabbed my bare ass.”

“What Mr. Mueller did was, like I said, very intentional, and the location was very intentional,” Taylor said when asked if she had prompted her bodyguard for help during the moment. “And I wasn’t going to blame [my bodyguard] Greg Dent…none of us expected this to happen. It had never happened before.”

    She couldn’t find more eloquent words to describe the situation?

  • Mickey Logan

    I don’t understand – why was her ass bare? We put him on trial for grabbing her ass, but not her for indecent exposure?

    Good for her

    I know right? Looks like it was well prepared.

  • disqus_gc5tQIVLOz

    Or, maybe, just maybe, she wants everyone to feel as uncomfortable as she was in that moment, to get the fucking point across?

  • Dylan

    She was in a courtroom, not an English classroom. (:

  • Dylan

    Uh, testimonies are *supposed* to be well prepared.

  • Arx

    What a whore

  • Janette

    Have you not seen the picture? she was wearing a dress. In the picture, it is pretty clear his hand is up her dress.

  • HG

    I haven’t read the details, but it could very well be that she was wearing a thong under her skirt, so that he couldn’t touched her bare butt or they could just mean bare as in not over her skirt. But even if she wasn’t wearing underwear, that still doesn’t give him any right to do so. It wasn’t like she was flashing her fans either…

  • jh7058622

    She might not have ever been to school period as she sounds like a 14 year old girl talking to her friends not a grown woman at a criminal trial.

  • Dylan

    Why? Why should she window dress sexual assault to make it sound pretty? It’s a vile act and should be portrayed as such. Besides, she got (allegedly) assaulted, so she has the right to say whatever she wants to about it, period.

  • jh7058622

    rui was being sarcastic sheesh. Are all Swift fans this glim? No wonder she so articulate in this situation and all her fans rush to defend her. She sounds like she just escaped a trailer park life with her unintelligible language.

  • Olga Sikaki

    Ok I would like to know how would you react if you were in her position…

  • Dylan

    I am not a Taylor Swift fan, as an artist i find her extremely contrived and pretty boring. Regardless, having no opinion on her as an artist has no bearing on how she is *supposed* to handle her (alleged) sexual assault – only she gets to define that. That’s all i was trying to say. (:

  • Dylan

    Thankfully, i’ve never been sexually abused so i would not even begin to “put myself in her position” – no one can, unless they’ve actually been in that position.

  • jh7058622

    I have no beef with you but that’s bullshit and here’s why:
    1. She is a SONGWRITER for God sake! She should be able to better convey her message.
    2. She is a life long fan of Law & Order: SVU. She even named one of her pets after the main character Olivia Benson. She knows there’s a better way to behave in a court of law.
    3. She’s a grown woman that should know better.

  • Dylan

    First of all, i really like how you wrote your message – to disagree with someone without being vile. I really appreciate it! (:
    Sure she’s a songwriter, but i won’t consider that her strong suit – just look at the lyrics of some of her songs. And sure, she can be a fan of a tv show and “should know better”, but my only point is that i didn’t go through sexual abuse, and i hope i hope you haven’t either, so we don’t get to decide how a victim should or should not behave. That’s all.

    You’re the type of tool who was abused as a child and now takes it out on women.

    Nice try but Taylor Swift is a whore.

    You mean English teachers? Even your mocking is mockable.
