Colorado DJ fired over Taylor Swift accusation sues singer.

A former Denver radio personality has filed a lawsuit against singer and Berks County native Taylor Swift, saying he lost his job after being accused of inappropriately touching Swift during a photo session.

(CNN) — A former Colorado radio DJ sued Taylor Swift this week, after accusations that he “grabbed her bottom” got him fired from his job, according to a lawsuit filed in District Court.David Mueller, who worked as a radio host in Denver, Colorado, attended a concert by the pop star with his girlfriend, and they were invited backstage where they got a photograph with the Bad Blood hitmaker. The lawsuit says Mueller was falsely accused by one of Swift’s security team of grabbing the singer’s buttocks backstage at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013.

A statement from Swift’s publicist on Saturday says Mueller’s employer was given evidence after the incident and made its own decision on his job’s status. He reports that he then shook Swift’s hand and left the photo area, but that he and his girlfriend were approached by Swift’s bodyguards a short time later and were removed from the venue. The backstage event was part of his job duties with station KYGO, where he was often required to interact with celebrities, according to court documents. Swift allegedly claimed that Mueller lifted her “skirt with his hands and grabbed her bottom.” Following this, Swift’s security team surrounded Mueller and Melcher and removed them from the event.

After small talk, “Swift suddenly announced it was picture time” and “quickly put her arm” around Melcher, while Mueller jumped in “at the last second,” according to The Post. The lawsuit alleged that, two days later, following a string of phone calls between Swift’s management team and the station, Mueller was fired as co-host of the 98.5 KYGO Ryno and Jackson morning show. “The contention that Mr. Mueller, who denies the allegations, was fired on June 4, 2013. “Mueller steadfastly maintains that no inappropriate contact of any kind occurred between him and Ms. It also says Mueller denies any inappropriate contact with Swift and noted that he had met many other celebrities – such as Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears and Heidi Klum – without any incidents. Over the course of Mueller’s career he has met and been photographed with “hundreds” of celebrities including Sheryl Crow, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Heidi Klum, Fergie, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Lopez.
