“Outrageous”

Taylor Swift countersues DJ who allegedly groped her

By WITW Staff on October 29, 2015

Last month, former radio host David Mueller sued Taylor Swift, alleging that he was fired after being falsely accused of groping the pop star during a meet-and-greet before her concert at the Pepsi Center in June 2013. While he admitted that the assault took place, he blamed his “superior” at the radio station KYGO, Eddie Haskell. To clear up the air around the incident, Swift has now filed a countersuit, stating that she was sure Mueller committed the assault, and not “her long-term business acquaintance”, Mr. Haskell. Detailing the incident, the papers claim that “Mueller lifted her skirt and groped her” while taking a photograph with Swift, leaving her “surprised, upset, offended, and alarmed.” The papers claim that the countersuit will “demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts.” Swift is demanding a jury trial and promised to donate any money she wins from the suit to “charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.”
