Taylor Swift is in the middle of a legal feud with a DJ who says he was fired from his radio station in Colorado because of her claims that he grabbed her butt while taking a picture after a 2013 concert.
When DJ David Mueller sued the 26-year-old singer after these accusations, saying they were false, Taylor filed a countersuit.
While a judge granted Taylor‘s request to seal one of the photos from the public (aka it cannot be used as evidence until the case goes to trial), the judge has also denied her request to withhold other evidence.
For this reason, the transcript from Taylor‘s deposition concerning alleged incident is now available to the public (via Billboard).
According to a videotape of Taylor‘s deposition, she claimed, “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.”
“I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before,” she added. “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.”
Taylor’s lawyers have also filed a motion for summary judgment, claiming that she never intentionally got in the middle of David‘s contract with his radio station.
By filing this deposition, Taylor‘s team reportedly hopes to win the case before it goes to trial.
