Taylor Swift Details Getting Groped By DJ In Her Deposition: I Felt Violated

For the first time ever, we have access to Taylor Swift’s deposition in the case she filed against former DJ David Mueller.

The Blank Space” singer accused the DJ of sexually assaulting her during a meet-and-greet at Pepsi Center in 2013 and described the incident in detail.

She explained Mueller put his hand up her skirt and groped her while posing for a picture:

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.

Taylor continued to describe how she felt “violated” and “stunned” by what happened. She shared,

I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before. A meet-and-greet is supposed to be a situation where you’re thanking people for coming, you’re supposed to be welcoming people into your home, which is the arena for that day, and for someone to violate that hospitality in that way, I was completely stunned.

Mueller filed a suit against Taylor in 2015 originally claiming the allegations were false and he was fired from his job because of it. Taylor responded by requesting a jury trial.

According to Cosmopolitan, the judge agreed to keep a photo from the meet-and-greet that helps Taylor’s case away from the public.

He argued,

The widespread dissemination of this image might significantly complicate jury selection.

However, the deposition became public because the judge ruled the case “ordinary and mundane.”

If she wins, Taylor plans to donate any money received to “charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.”

It would not only be a victory for her, but a win for countless victims.
