Taylor Swift bodyguard tells court he saw DJ reach under singer's skirt

"That's when your client's hand went out of his view because it was grabbed onto my ass cheek".

According to court transcripts, the lawyer repeatedly asked Swift how she felt about Mueller losing his job as a result of the incident, Glamour reports.

"He sexually assaulted my daughter", claimed Andrea Swift in court, pointing her finger at the broadcaster.

The final verdict of the incident will be decided by a jury of six women and two women.

He painted Swift as a star who was devoted to her fans - perhaps too much so, according to Dent.

But she said she would not have needed the photo to remember Mueller.

To this Swift replied, "Your client could have taken a normal photo with me". But when shown the photo in question, Call said, Mueller responded: "Well, if it did happen, it was accidental". He testified that he saw Mueller put his hand under her skirt during the photo. When she asked him directly if he had done it, Melcher said, his response was, "How could you ask me that?" Her team told the radio station about the incident but never demanded the DJ be fired, she said. "He touched my behind", Swift said, adding that she had a "3-D recollection" of what had transpired. Swift retorted by saying, "because my a** is located in the back of my body".

McFarland also noted that Swift was closer to Melcher than Mueller in the photo. He had a handful of my ass. Andrea Swift is a co-defendant in his lawsuit.

The 27-year-old, famous for hits such as Bad Blood and Shake It Off, gave her account in court on Thursday.

Mueller sued Swift after her team told his bosses at a country music station that he had reached under her dress and touched her backside during a meet-and-greet before a 2013 concert in Denver. "I don't know him, but what he did was despicable", she told Mueller's attorney at one point.

"Gabe, this is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt - with his hand on my a*s", she said. I don't know him. He started testifying Tuesday and was being questioned Wednesday by Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge about his claim that Swift falsely accused him of groping her before a 2013 concert.

Simbeck was the final witness of the day.

Call said he was "shocked" and "embarrassed" upon learning about the incident and anxious how it would reflect on the station. But he insists he was touching Swift in her ribs, not her rear, as she alleges in the groping case. Call concluded that he was lying and made a decision to fire him. Coomer was the person who talked with Bell that night about what Swift said happened then relayed the information to Call. In the counter-suit, Swift claims that Mueller has been fired from on-air jobs twice before and hasn't worked on-air since 2006 (which seems a little off, but that's what the statement said).

"It is an absolute lie", he said.

The Friday witnesses were not as dramatic as Swift herself, who spent an hour on the stand Thursday strongly asserting that she was certain Mueller was the man who groped her. Yet four years later, Swift and former DJ David Mueller are embroiled in a widely publicized federal court case.
