Taylor Swift Testifies In Groping Trial: 'It Was A Definite, Long Grab'

Taylor Swift Testifies In Groping Trial: 'It Was A Definite, Long Grab'”

The singer said she had moved as far as possible away from Mueller after the alleged sexual assault. She says she and Mueller started out as co-workers at country station KYGO and became romantically involved in February 2013.

She also rejected the assumption that she misidentified Mr Mueller, saying: "I'm not going to allow you or your client to say I am to blame".

"I am being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions, and not mine", Swift added later.

He testified his hand was touching her skirt after he put his arm around her and their arms got crossed.

"It was a very shocking thing that has never happened to me before. I never have said anything different". After a lunch break the trial is to resume to take up Swift's lawsuit against Mueller.

Melchor testified Mueller was devastated by the accusation. He had a handful of my ass. He says he was standing nearby and could see both the front and back of Swift.

To start, I want to highlight a moment that I feel has been underappreciated: When Mnuchin started by effusively thanking Rep. Instead, her goal is kicking out the person who now resides there. "I think that he's capable of doing outrageous things".

She said she didn't report the incident at first, because there were many other fans waiting to meet her and she didn't want to ruin their night.

Frank Bell, the Grammy Award-winning chart-topper's radio liason, backed up Swift's version of events, what she said to him immediately after the photo session. He said he and the singer were trying to reach around one another and "our hands touched and our arms touched" during a photo opportunity he estimated lasted no more than 40 seconds. I could have picked him out of a line of 1,000.

Swift's response succinctly articulates a truth that shouldn't need saying: When a man assaults a woman, any consequences he faces are a result of his own actions.

The star's staff reported the incident to KYGO executives who fired Mueller two days later for violating the morals clause of his contract, the court has heard.

Call said he was "shocked" and "embarrassed" upon learning about the incident and anxious how it would reflect on the station.

Swift also testified that a security guard witnessed the alleged groping incident. Mueller was 51 years old at the time of the incident.

Witness says teen opened airplane door quickly
The American Airlines flight 5242 was preparing for takeoff from the terminal at Charlotte Douglas International Airport. The incident led to a two hour delay of the aircraft and reportedly cost the airlines about $16,000 in damages.

Baldridge repeatedly interrupted Mueller during an aggressive cross-examination and noted that Mueller has said he lost an audio recording of a meeting he had with his bosses before they fired him. Coomer called it a lie.

Asked whether she had sought witnesses, Ms Swift - who was not present at the encounter - she said she had no reason to doubt her daughter.

"It is an absolute lie", he said.

Mueller's attorney, Gabe McFarland, cross-examined Swift on Thursday, and her testimony is a lesson in how to stand up for yourself when your story - and character - are questioned.

"What Mr Mueller did, like I said, was very intentional and the location was very intentional, and it happened very quickly", she said.
