Singer Taylor Swift has taken the witness stand during the trial of former radio host David Mueller, who is accused of groping the star during a photo opportunity in 2013.
“It was horrifying and shocking and we had never experienced anything like [it],” she said of the moment Mueller inappropriately touched her during a backstage meet-and-greet in June 2013.
The pair were posing for a photo together, when the 55-year-old allegedly “lifted her skirt and groped her.”
He was removed from the concert immediately, and Swift’s management alerted his employer. He was fired two days later.
The radio host is now suing the star, her mother and his former employer, claiming he was “falsely accused”. He is seeking AU$3.8 million in damages.
