Maybe you haven’t heard, but Taylor Swift is suing this cheeseball-looking DJ for allegedly groping her. It’s very Taylor Swift. She alleges that the DJ, David Mueller, grabbed her bare behind during a photo op after a concert in June 2013. Mueller was fired two days later and sued Swift, claiming her false accusation caused him to lose his job and alleging that one of his superiors was the offender.
Mueller finally went public to give his side of the story after months of legal disagreements.
“What I was told that night and what I was told that day were different, but what I’m hearing now is that I stuck my hand under her skirt and grabbed her bare bottom,” Mueller told 955 Detroit’s “Mojo in the Morning” on Tuesday.
“My right hand — I’m looking at the photographer and I’m trying to get my right hand, you know, behind Taylor, because [another DJ] was on the other side of Taylor,” he continued. “My other hand I think was just on my belt or on my pocket, my left hand. So my right hand, I’ve got my hand closed and my palm down, and I reach behind, toward Taylor. Our hands touched and our arms crossed. That’s all I remember.”
He added, “My hand was not touching her body … My hand was never under her skirt. I never grabbed her. My hand was not open.”
For comparison, here is Taylor Swift’s version, via a July deposition:
“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.”
As you can tell from the photo above, it’s pretty inconclusive what’s actually going on behind the scenes. My best bet is the dude put his hand on Taylor’s lower back, got a little too excited, and headed too far down past the border. You have to be a straight up psycho so just shove your hand up a chick’s dress, especially when that chick is one of the most famous women in the world. This guy totally looks like a crusty dude, but what Swift is alleging is pretty extreme, even for a slimy DJ like this guy.
