“I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support throughout this four-year ordeal and two-year long trial process,” Taylor told Just Jared.

“I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this. 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,” Taylor continued.

Taylor Swift Tears Up During Closing Arguments of Groping Trial

Taylor Swift bravely sat in court and listened to the closing arguments in her trial against radio DJ David Mueller on Monday (August 14) in Denver, Col.

The 27-year-old singer reportedly teared up while Mueller‘s lawyer tried to say that Taylor was not being truthful about her accusation that she was groped by the DJ.

“I don’t know what kind of man grabs or gropes a music superstar … But it’s not that guy,” Mueller‘s lawyer said in the closing arguments (via Variety). “Nobody saw what Ms. Swift said happened…because it didn’t happen.”

“Look at Ms. Swift’s face and ask yourself: Is that the face of a person who just had a strange man grab her butt?,” he told the jury, which is when Taylor started to cry.

Taylor‘s lawyer expressed that Mueller‘s team was unable to provide any evidence that the singer’s claim was false and called that DJ’s lawsuit “audacious and ridiculous.”

While the judge threw out Mueller‘s case against Taylor, her mom Andrea and a member from her management team are still involved in an ongoing case.

Taylor Swift's Former Bodyguard Says He Witnessed DJ's Groping

Taylor Swift‘s case against radio DJ David Mueller continued on Friday (August 11) with her former bodyguard Greg Dent taking the stand in the trial at a Denver courthouse.

Dent testified that he saw Mueller put his hand under Swift‘s skirt during a meet-and-greet at her concert in 2013.

“I know I saw it,” Dent said (via BuzzFeed). “When he went to put his arm around her, his hand went up her skirt. She jumped to pull her skirt down and moved closer to the girl.”

Dent says that he didn’t intervene as he always followed Taylor‘s cues and she “didn’t give any indication she wanted me to do anything … I’m sure she would have said something if she wanted me to intervene. In certain situations, I go off what Miss Swift wants me to do.”

When asked why Taylor continued, Dent said that she wanted to finish meeting the fans who were already waiting. “She stayed there to finish,” he said. “She had more people there. She was going to finish.”
