Lena Dunham praises Taylor Swift's 'fierce' court testimony

Lena Dunham praises Taylor Swift's 'fierce' court testimony

"I hope she feels supported and knows she has a team behind her". "He grabbed my a** underneath my skirt".

Mueller attorney Gabriel McFarland said during questioning that Simbeck was making an assumption because Mueller's hand position can not be seen in the photo, which has not been publicly released.

He was also asked whether it was he who had touched Swift inappropriately, as was alleged in Mueller's testimony. Coomer called it a lie.

When Taylor faced Mueller's attorney during the trial, she did not miss any chance to use her sense of humor.

Mueller has sought up to $3 million in damages, but says he is not seeking a specific amount - just a chance to clear his name and salvage his career.

The trial, which began Monday, is the latest event in a drawn-out legal battle between Swift and Mueller.

McFarland also suggested Swift should have taken a break if she was as distressed by Mueller allegedly groping her as she claims, she shot back: "And your client could have taken a normal photo with me".

Swifties aren't quite sure who that blonde woman next to Taylor Swift's lawyer is supposed to be and they are roasting that poor artist for not capturing the wondrous beauty of the pop star.

When shown a photo of the meet and greet between her, Mueller and his then-girlfriend Shannon Melcher by one of David Mueller's attorneys, Swift firmly stated: 'This is a photo of him with his hand up my skirt - with his hand on my ass.

The 27-year-old's mother Andrea took the stand and tearfully recalled her daughter telling her what had happened.

Think twice before starting any bad blood with Taylor Swift because she will not be silenced.

McFarland said to her that she didn't know whether Mueller had groped Swift.

Her testimony lasted about an hour. Asked if he grabbed her backside, the former disc jockey for Denver radio station KYGO-FM replied, "No, I did not".

Mr Baldridge did get Mueller to concede that various supervisors with KYGO and its parent firm had discussed the possibility of letting him go even before the encounter with Swift.

The court has been shown a photograph of the moment when Swift said she was grabbed which her lawyer says is "damning" proof of her claims.

Taylor Swift on Thursday testified against former radio DJ David Mueller, whom she has accused of groping her during a 2013 meet-and-greet.

But Dent, who worked as Swift's bodyguard for five years, explained that he followed the singer's direction who continued with the photo session for fans and invited guests. "It was just destroying her that she said that".

"I don't feel anything about Mueller". Swift and Mueller's girlfriend, Shannon Melcher, stand close enough that their arms and hands can not be seen. He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him.

Stephanie Simbeck, the photographer, is believed to have heard Taylor talk about the assault soon after it happened.

She also refused to take the blame for Mueller being fired from his job after the alleged assault.

Swift has testified that "it was a definite grab". She alleges that, during a photo opp, he reached up her skirt and grabbed her butt.

I'm not a Taylor Swift fan but I'm now loving how she's standing up for herself in court.

He originally sued in state court in Colorado, but Swift's attorneys moved to have the matter transferred to federal court, which is allowed if a party lives out of state.

Mueller sued Swift after her team reported the alleged assault to his bosses at a country music station. "We absolutely wanted to keep this private, but we did not want him to get away with it".

Mueller gave evidence on Tuesday to say he may have made innocent physical contact with Swift, but insisted he did not grope her. The "Shake It Off" crooner countersued for assault and battery. "Her example is powerful".
