While the judge in the lawsuit between Taylor Swift and radio deejay David Mueller ordered photos from the case sealed, this is not the case for the deposition Swift gave in the case, which has just been made public.
In the transcript of the videotaped deposition, reports Billboard, Swift is asked to recall the incident, in which she alleges Mueller groped her while they posed for photos.
“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,” she said, adding: “It was completely intentional, I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life.”
Swift also describes how upsetting the alleged groping was to her. “I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before,” Swift said. “A meet-and-greet is supposed to be a situation where you’re thanking people for coming, you’re supposed to be welcoming people into your home, which is the arena for that day, and for someone to violate that hospitality in that way, I was completely stunned.”
Following Swift’s suit, Mueller sued Swift for slander, claiming that he may have touched her but only by accident. Swift then countersued Mueller, charging assault and battery, and promising to donate and money she wins in the case to charitable organizations to protect women from sexual assault.
