UPDATE 3:40 P.M. EST: Taylor’s attorney has requested that the judge dismiss the case, arguing Tay had nothing to do with KYGO’s decision to fire Mueller.
The lawyer said:
“Mr. Mueller’s beef is with KYGO and not with my client. KYGO did him wrong and he didn’t sue KYGO.”
According to reporter Claudia Rosenbaum, the judge is looking into a phone call made by Swift’s radio liaison Frank Bell to KYGO executive Robert Call.
We’ll keep you posted.
Week one of Taylor Swift‘s trial against radio host David Mueller is almost in the books.
On Friday, the 27-year-old singer’s sexual assault lawsuit against the Denver DJ (who is denying all accusations and suing Tay for slander) continued with more testimonies from both sides of the aisle.
First to take the stand was Swift’s bodyguard Gregory Dent, who allegedly witnessed the incident first hand back in 2013.
“I didn’t do anything because sometimes she said I was a little too mean … I can’t tell you how long his hand was there. I just can tell you he put his hand under her skirt, she pushed it down, and jumped.”
When Mueller’s attorney asked Dent why he didn’t do anything after seeing what happened, the security professional said:
“I take my cues from her and she continued with the photo.”
The next person to take the stand was Mueller’s formerKYGO co-host Ryan Kliesch, who said he had never witnessed the DJ being disrespectful to women.
It only takes once, buddy.
Anyway, next up on the stand was Mueller’s ex-girlfriend Shannon Melcher, who was also pictured in the meet and greet photo with Swift and Mueller.
Melcher testified that “the photo happened very quickly” and she wasn’t “paying attention to what [Mueller] was doing.”
“I did not, of course I was facing forward, I don’t have eyes in the back of my head.”
Channeling her inner Swift sass, we see!
The trial is ongoing. More details to come…
