Taylor Swift ‘files counter suit against former Denver DJ claiming he lost his job due to being accused of groping superstar’.

TEMPO.CO, Denver – Taylor Swift filed a counterclaim on Wednesday, October 28, against a former Denver radio host who sued her after he said he lost his job because of false accusations that he inappropriately touched her during a photo session. Former radio DJ David Mueller filed a lawsuit against the singer last month, claiming he was fired from his job and banned from Swift’s concerts following her allegations that he groped her at a meet and greet in Denver, Colorado. But now Swift has responded, filing a counterclaim which, according to People, alleges Mueller “lifted her skirt and groped her” during the fan event before her concert at the Pepsi Centre in June 2013. People reports the countersuit details that Mueller admitted an assault occurred at the event, but he blamed his “superior” David Haskell, the program director at Denver’s country radio station, KYGO FM. “Ms Swift knows exactly who committed the assault – it was Mueller – and she is not confused in the slightest about whether her long-term business acquaintance, Mr Haskell, was the culprit,” the countersuit states. “Resolution of this counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts.” The countersuit specifies any surplus damages or costs awarded to Swift following the suit will be donated to “charitable organisations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard”.

According to Mueller’s suit, Swift was talking to the pair before she “suddenly announced it was picture time” and “quickly put her right arm” around his girlfriend. Mueller alleges he later spoke to an unnamed co-worker who “described and demonstrated how he had put his arms around [Swift], hands on her bottom” when it was his turn to meet the singer.

In his suit, former radio host David Mueller denies that he had any inappropriate contact with Swift, and alleges that in fact his boss, Eddie Haskell, claimed to have touched Swift’s rear. But Swift, 25, accuses Mueller solely. “Mueller’s newfound claim that he is the ‘wrong guy’ and, therefore, his termination from KYGO was unjustified, is specious,” Swift’s attorneys wrote in the counterclaim. “Ms.

Swift’s publicist, who also could not be reached for comment on Wednesday night, released a statement shortly after Mueller sued the singer, saying the radio host’s employer was given evidence after the incident and made its own decision to fire him. British PM David Cameron has rejected calls for such taxes, but has indicated that other measures – such as a clampdown on advertising and marketing deals – could form part of a future Government strategy on childhood obesity. The study, published in the journal Obesity, looked at the effect of restricting sugar on metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes. The plaintiff then details how a co-worker of his also at the concert bragged to him about taking a photo with the music phenom and ‘grabbing her butt,’ TMZ reported.

The research found that those who were made to cut back on sugar had a drop in blood pressure, cholesterol, improved liver function, fasting blood glucose levels while insulin levels were cut by one third. Before he knew it, Mueller was approached by a member of Swift’s security staff at the venue and accused of groping the pop sensation before being kicked out of the concert. The diet overall had the same fat, protein, carbohydrate, and calorie levels as their previous diets at home, with the carbohydrate from sugar replaced by foods such as bagels, cereals and pasta. TMZ reported that it’s unclear at this point to what extent Swift knows of the exchange or the lawsuit, but it wouldn’t be the first time the young singer was involved in a strange legal situation. Lead author, Dr Robert Lustig, said: “This study definitively shows that sugar is metabolically harmful not because of its calories or its effects on weight; rather sugar is metabolically harmful because it’s sugar. “This internally controlled intervention study is a solid indication that sugar contributes to metabolic syndrome, and is the strongest evidence to date that the negative effects of sugar are not because of calories or obesity.” Overall, the total dietary sugar in the meal plan was reduced from 28 per cent to 10 per cent, and fructose from 12 per cent to 4 per cent of total calories.

Back in July, it was revealed in a Daily Mail exclusive that The Bad Blood singer was being sued by Robert Kloetzly, boss of California-based Lucky 13, who says she ripped off his rock and roll fashion line. Diastolic blood pressure decreased by 5mm, levels of key fats in the blood known as triglycerides dropped by 33 points, LDL-cholesterol, known as the “bad” cholesterol, fell by 10 points, and liver function tests improved. “All of the surrogate measures of metabolic health got better, just by substituting starch for sugar in their processed food — all without changing calories or weight or exercise,” said Dr Lustig. “These findings support the idea that it is essential for parents to evaluate sugar intake and to be mindful of the health effects of what their children are consuming. “They told us it felt like so much more food, even though they were consuming the same number of calories as before, just with significantly less sugar. “Sugar calories are the worst, because they turn to fat in the liver, driving insulin resistance, and driving risk for diabetes, heart, and liver disease. Lucky 13’s legal team then bombarded the global pop superstar with hundreds of discovery requests, including a peculiar demand for any promotional videos or photos that show glimpses of her ‘partially visible’ breasts or bottom. Dr Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist and advisor to Action on Sugar, said: “It’s time to abandon the outdated notion that a calorie is a calorie theory that continues to damage public health.

Kloetzly’s lawyers are expected to argue that the risqué images constitute evidence in the case because they demonstrate how the 25-year-old musician uses her sex appeal to target a similar audience to his products.
