Taylor Swift expresses her shock over alleged groping incident

The trial stems from Swift's allegation that Mueller, a former radio DJ for KYGO, inappropriately touched her at a backstage meet-and-greet at Denver's Pepsi Center in June 2013.

McFarland said to her that she didn't know whether Mueller had groped Swift.

Swift's certainty about the alleged assault was also questioned, but Swift remained steadfast, and stood firmly by her initial statements. Her team told the radio station about the incident but never demanded the DJ be fired, she said.

The Shake It Off and I Knew You Were Trouble singer, however, later complained and Mr Dent confronted Mr Mueller at the event.

Mueller, meanwhile, maintains that his hand touched her skirt when he placed his hand on Swift's ribs, and then their arms got crossed. She's trying to tell people out there that you can say no when someone puts their hand on you.

Swift's reply: "Your client could have taken a normal photo with me".

Lena Dunham is "proud" of Taylor Swift after the pop star took the stand to testify against the ex-DJ she claims groped her.

The radio host, David Mueller, has sued the pop star, claiming she and her team's accusations against him caused him to lose his job and harmed his reputation. Swift is now countersuing Mueller for just $1. She added, "He stayed latched on to my bare ass...as I moved away from him visibly uncomfortable..."

During questioning, Mueller's lawyer, M. Gabriel McFarland, suggested that Swift could have taken a break from the meet and greet after the alleged grope, and asked whether she was critical of her bodyguard for not stepping in to stop what was allegedly happening.

Stephanie Simbeck, the photographer, is believed to have heard Taylor talk about the assault soon after it happened.

However, Swift's attorney Doug Baldridge argued that the incident did happen and that Mueller was suing for fame and money.

'It was a definite grab.

She said she didn't contact police in order to protect her daughter, saying she didn't want the incident to "define her life".

"Anybody who knows Taylor Swift knows she has really strong lyrics", said Craftsy's Carly Chapple.

Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Taylor Swift testified on Thursday she was subjected to a "very long" and "intentional" grope by a Colorado disc jockey who appeared to be drunk during a photo session four years ago. "We absolutely wanted to keep it private, but we didn't want him to get away with it". Two years later, Mueller sued Swift for $3 million, claiming her allegations were false, and led to a loss of income because he was let go from his job.

"He sexually assaulted her", she said. She is seeking a symbolic one dollar (77p) damages, saying she wants to serve as an example to other women who have been assaulted.
