Taylor Swift Photo Of Sexual Assault Leaked Online
A photo of Taylor Swift being sexually assaulted by a former DJ, who is based in Denver, has leaked online.
In the photo, which was published by TMZ, Swift is standing between a woman and a man named David Mueller, the DJ who the singer claims to have sexually assaulted her. The photo seems to show Mueller's right hand behind the singer's lower back.
Swift alleged in her deposition that Mueller grabbed her, but while he had his picture taken with her and the other woman during a meet-and-greet in 2013. "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 a** cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there," she said.
Swift affirmed that Mueller's actions were "intentional," that she has "never been so sure of anything" in her life and that she had been "violated in a way I had never experienced before," according to Fox News.
Upon filing the sexual assault case, the singer had requested the judge to seal the evidence because of its "scandalous nature," explaining that members of the media would be having a "field day" if it was made public.
Mueller, on the other hand, has repeatedly denied the singer's accusations, explaining that he "leaned into the shot at the last minute," which resulted in the awkward hand placement. However, upon seeing the photo after it was leaked, his legal team now claims that the photo has strengthened their client's case and weakened hers.
"[The shot] doesn't prove a thing other than he didn't have his hand underneath her skirt," Mueller's legal team claimed. He had tried to sue the singer for slander, stating that she was responsible for his firing from country radio station 98.5 KYGO in Colorado, where he had worked since 2013, according to the Daily Mail.
