You can now read exactly what Taylor Swift had to say in court about the 2013 incident in which she alleges she was groped by a Denver DJ at a meet and greet.
TMZ has just posted the transcript of Swift’s sworn testimony in a Denver courtroom this July 28th.
Asked by her attorney if the DJ, David Mueller, had ever grabbed her butt outside her clothing, she says, “It was all underneath my clothing.” While she was posing for a photo with Mueller and his female companion, “he put his hand under my dress and grabbed my bare ass.” She says the only other contact they had was probably when she shook his hand as he walked in, as she does with everyone at the events.
Taylor goes on to say that as soon as he grabbed her, she “became shocked and withdrawn, and was barely able to say, ‘Thanks for coming,'” which is what she says to everybody. She recalls that she was “barely able to get the words out… It was like somebody switched the lights off” in her personality. She says she “just wanted him to be gone.”
Taylor asserts that she didn’t tell anyone at the time because anything she says “in front of fans could end up in the press” and she didn’t want that.
The judge has decided to keep the actual photo with Mueller under seal.
