Denver, CO, United States (4E) – Singer Taylor Swift has given her deposition over the alleged groping incident years ago and she said that she felt frantic, distressed, and violated.
The “Blank Space” songstress was allegedly groped by a Colorado DJ during a fan meet and greet last June 2013. A counter lawsuit was filed against the DJ, identified as David Mueller of 98.5 KYGO , and it is ongoing. The judge granted her the right to seal one of the photos used as evidence in the case but was denied the request to withhold evidence such as the deposition she gave in July.
Mueller also filed the lawsuit against Swift last year. He claimed that he was fired from his job over the false allegations made by the singer. The counter lawsuit is for assault and battery.
In the transcript of the deposition, Swift said, "Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there. It was completely intentional, I've never been so sure of anything in my life." She said that she remembers being frantic, distressed, and violated in the way she never experienced before.
Swift continued to say in her deposition that a meet and greet is supposed to be a situation where one thanks people for coming and not for someone to violate anyone’s hospitality. She continued to reveal that she felt completely stunned regarding the alleged groping incident.
Swift said that any money she gets from the lawsuit if she wins would be used for charitable organizations dedicated to protect women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.
The deposition transcript comes after she performed at her only concert for this year. She performed at the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
A judge is yet to decide if they will proceed with the trial.
