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

DENVER (AP) — Taylor Swift filed a counterclaim Wednesday 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. Last month the 25-year-old Bad Blood singer was apparently slapped with a lawsuit stemming from an incident that happened during a meet-and-greet at a concert in Denver, Colorado back in 2013. The DJ, David Mueller, was previously terminated twice from radio jobs at other stations resulting in him not working as an on-air personality since 2006 according to the counter suit papers obtained by People. Swift’s countersuit asserts that prior to her show at Denver’s Pepsi Center in June 2013, Mueller — who was at a meet-and-greet with his girlfriend Shannon Melcher — reached under Swift’s skirt and grabbed her rear end. District Court in Denver in September, saying he was falsely accused by a member of her security team of grabbing the singer’s buttocks backstage at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013.

The papers also state that Mueller had admitted Swift was assaulted but placed the blame on his superior at Denver radio station KYGO, named Eddie Haskell. Mueller’s legal papers maintained he never acted inappropriately with Swift, and even suggested he was wrongly being blamed for another co-worker’s actions. It wasn’t clear what the deejay was suing for, but his his complaint stated that after a 20-year career, which involved dealing with high-profile celebrities, he was making $120,000. 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.

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. Haskell, was the culprit. ‘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 documents get even uglier as the papers allege that Mueller and his girlfriend were participating in the event when he: ‘Intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission.’ ‘Mueller did not merely brush his hand against Ms. Swift’s publicist, who also could not be reached for comment 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. 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.

Swift, who is asking for a jury trial, says any money she might receive involving the lawsuit will be donated to charitable organizations “dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.” Because of the nature of the incident, when word got back to Mueller’s place of work about what had transpired, he says he was fired immediately, as TMZ reported. 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.

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. 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.
