Taylor Swift felt violated after being groped
Los Angeles, Oct 24 (IANS) Singer Taylor Swift felt “frantic and distressed” after being groped by a Disk Jockey (DJ).
The 26-year-old singer has an ongoing lawsuit against DJ David Mueller, whom she accused of grabbing her derriere, when they met backstage at her concert in Colorado last year, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
While a judge has agreed to make photographs of the reported incident sealed from public view, Swift’s videotaped deposition has now been made available.
In the deposition, which was videographed on July 26, the “Blank space” hitmaker was asked to recount the incident in detail and spoke about her embarrassment and discomfort.
“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,” she added.
And Swift insisted the DJ’s conduct proved his behaviour was completely intentional.
“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,” the singer added.
