"It was a definite grab".
Taylor then filed a counterlawsuit still maintaining that Mueller grabbed her butt unduly.
Taylor also testified on Wednesday in a deposition in Denver and said, "It was not an accident, it was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life". "He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt", Taylor narrated without hesitation.
The photographer who took pictures at the meet and greet also testified in court spoke in favour of Taylor Swift telling the court that she thought Swift had made a amusing move during the photo, at first believing she had tripped. "It was a very shocking thing".
Taylor Swift's mum made an emotional appearance in court, as she testified about the moment she learned the star had been groped backstage at a concert. He was sacked from his job at KYGO shortly after the incident, which is why he's asking for $3 million in damages.
Mueller sued Swift for defamation and interference with contract after her team complained to his employer, KYGO radio, which fired him.
He sued Swift for being rejected from all the jobs and said that her "false claim" had costed him his career, passion and income.
The 27-year-old spoke forcefully in Denver, Colorado, as she described what had happened during the incident. Mueller said: "I thought he was just telling me one of his stories". "I know that it happened". He says he noticed that Swift's demeanor changed, but that she still said "thank you" as Mueller and Melcher left the room.
The pop star said she did not say anything to Mueller about it at the time because she did not want fans nearby to hear anything, and that she did not want to cancel the event and disappoint them.
Swift's testimony comes a day after her mother, Andrea Swift, took the stand, where she said she "wanted to vomit and cry at the same time" when her daughter told her she had been groped.
She said she noticed nothing amiss during the brief meeting and that she and Mr Mueller were rudely escorted out of the arena later that evening. You can ask me a million questions about it and I'm never going to say anything different.
"Someone could have concluded it appeared she was trying to get away from me", Mueller testified Wednesday when shown a picture taken during the alleged assault. The Shake It Off hitmaker fired back in a countersuit, accusing him of sexual assault and battery.
Swift's mother, who serves as part of her daughter's management team, told jurors that one specific worry was the prospect that the photo taken with the radio personality in question, David Mueller, might end up going viral and even being doctored in a lewd way.
Kliesch testified that Haskell had separately talked to him after their VIP meet-and-greet with Swift. He sued her in 2015 and is seeking $3 million damages.
