Taylor Swift is not here for your victim blaming

Taylor Swift shaken and humiliated by assault, mom tells trial

Her legal team has submitted the photo for evidence.

He added: "David Mueller unequivocally denies he touched her inappropriately in anyway".

Mueller's lawyer Gabriel McFarland repeatedly pressed Dent why he didn't step in.

Recalling the night, Andrea Swift said her daughter expressed bewilderment that she had "thanked" Mueller and his then-girlfriend after the incident.

Muller however, presented the photo and said "our hands touched and our arms touched" but his hands never went down Swift's "rib cage, or rib, or ribs". Coomer called it a lie.

He says the photo shows Swift trying to move away from Mueller.

But in his opening statement, Mr Baldridge told jurors that Swift is "absolutely certain" she was sexually assaulted by Mueller, and the photo is "damning" proof of it.

Mueller has sued Swift, claiming he was falsely accused and lost his job.

The Denver radio station took the allegations seriously and severed Mueller's $150,000-per-year contract.

In her testimony, the pop star was cordial, but direct and sometimes testy while being questioned by a lawyer representing Mueller.

Swift was posing for photos with fans, when David Mueller allegedly put his hand behind her back, "lifted her skirt and groped her".

"I went into the dressing room and I saw her face".

Taylor Swift fans, from left, Grace Jarecke, Lucy Peterson and Dani Kuta display their numbers, which allow them into Denver Federal Court for the trial.

Swift said that someone would have had to been underneath her to see the actual groping "and we didn't have anyone positioned there".

Testimony began on Tuesday and is expected to last nine days.

The pop superstar dismissed attempts to dissuade her from her story and rejected the suggestion that she had continued greeting guests for as long as 30 minutes after the alleged assault as if nothing had happened.

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

Andrea Swift also said that they did not report the alleged assault to the police out of privacy concerns.

Taylor Swift's former bodyguard has told a jury he witnessed a DJ putting his hand up the star's skirt.

Taylor Swift says a former radio DJ grabbed her behind underneath her skirt, not above it, during a 2013 pre-concert meet-and-greet photo session in Denver.

(7) McFarland questioned why no one witnessed Mueller grabbing Swift's backside. "I wanted to vomit and cry at the same time".

Mueller filed a lawsuit against Swift, her mother, and her radio promotions director Frank Bell in 2015 for what he said was a false claim that they used to convince KYGO to terminate him.

Swift then counter-sued, alleging sexual assault.

Swift testified that after she was grabbed she "got as far away from him as I possibly could".

The photographer who took pictures at the meet and greet told the court she thought Swift had made a amusing move during the photo, at first believing she had tripped. Instead, Swift is at the epicenter of media focus because of a court case regarding a 2013 photograph she took with a former country music radio personality.

"It was a definite grab. I don't know him".
