Taylor Swift's defense team digs into former DJ in cross-examination to kick off trial

Inside a Colorado court room on August 10, Taylor Swift took the stand and testified in the trial against Denver radio DJ David Mueller, who allegedly groped her four years ago at a concert meet-and-greet.

Swift and Mueller are battling each other in dueling lawsuits over whether he groped her four years ago, when she was 23 and he was 51, and whether she and her mother and management team got him fired for the alleged behavior.

When Mueller's attorney suggested Swift could have taken a break from the meet-and-greet if she had been so traumatized, Swift reportedly shot back, "And your client could have taken a normal photo with me", adding that she didn't want to ruin her fans' experience.

She testified guard Greg Dent saw David Mueller "lift my skirt" and grab her but that it was it was impossible for anyone to see Mueller's hand beneath her skirt and on her buttock because they were posing for the photo with their backs to a wall.

Andrea Swift acknowledged in court Wednesday that she sought to keep a lid on the encounter in order to protect her daughter.

"It was a definite grab. a very long grab", Swift testified in a Denver federal court.

"'Mom, a guy just grabbed my (rear end) in the meet-and-greet, '" Andrea Swift said her daughter told her.

"He latched onto my bare ass cheek, and I lurched away uncomfortably", Swift testified, per the New York.

"It was a very shocking thing", Swift testified during her almost hourlong testimony, adding it was "a devious and sneaky attack".

"Someone could have concluded it appeared she was trying to get away from me", David Mueller told a Denver federal court where the two are locked in a civil dispute over the incident at one of the singer's gigs in 2013. Discussion on exactly what that photo showed took center stage during court on Wednesday.

"I want to be very clear- there's been a lot of talk about diving and jostling and sliding into the frame", she said. He is seeking up to $3 million in damages. Swift countersued, alleging sexual assault, and is asking for a symbolic $1 judgment.

"Baldridge also repeatedly asked Mueller if he could grasp "any reason, incentive or motive" for Swift to make up the allegation or be involved in two years of litigation".

Mueller (55) testified on Tuesday that he may have made innocent contact with Swift but denied any inappropriate behavior.

Call said he fired the DJ because of his shifting accounts of the incident, and because the photo showed that Mueller's hand was "not where it was supposed to be". It had never happened before. "I have a 3-D rendition of what happened in my brain", she said.

She added she had not confronted the DJ or cancelled the event as she did not want to upset other fans who were there.

Swift's lawyers have said she does not know Mueller and has no incentive to target him or to fabricate a story.
