Twitter is (rightfully) giving Taylor Swift a standing ovation right now

Coomer said Mueller was sacked for violating a contract clause that permitted termination in cases of real or perceived behavior that reflected badly on the station.

Taylor Swift is now in the midst of a sexual assault trial against former radio host David Mueller-and as uncomfortable as the topic may be, the singer's testimony offers a very necessary reminder for everyone.

The pop star was cordial, but direct and sometimes testy while being questioned by a lawyer representing the DJ, David Mueller, on Thursday in federal court in Denver.

When Swift's lawyer Douglas Baldridge took the stand, he asked Kliesch if he was there when the photo was taken, or when security approached Mueller or when their boss Eddie Haskell allegedly told Mueller he had touched Swift's butt. Mueller was 51 years old at the time of the incident.

At the time of the alleged incident involving Swift, Mueller was the co-host of the Denver country music station KYGO's "Ryno and Jackson" show.

Mueller claims he touched Swift's ribs while awkwardly posing for the photo - an explanation Swift categorically rejected, saying his groping was "intentional". Her mother, Andrea Swift, testified Wednesday that the singer's management wanted to keep the matter out of the public eye. I wasn't going to blame Greg Dent for something Mr Mueller did. Swift alleges Mueller stuck his hand under her dress and grabbed her buttocks during a photo op, which he denied in court this week.

"Because my ass is located on the back of my body", she replied.

Dent testified that he was positioned off to Swift's side during the meet-and-greet, and he watched Mueller and his then-girlfriend Shannon Melcher enter for a photo.

"He stayed latched on my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him, visibly uncomfortably", Swift said.

Thursday (August 10) marks day four of Taylor Swift's sexual assault trial against former KYGO radio host David Mueller-and it's arguably the most important one so far. Why?

Swift counter-sued Mueller in October 2015 and demanded a jury for the trial.

"'Mom, a guy just grabbed my ass at the meet-and-greet, '" she recounted her daughter telling her moments after the alleged incident.

Taylor's attorneys believe the photograph is a "damning" proof of Mueller touching the singer-songwriter inappropriately.

(7) McFarland questioned why no one witnessed Mueller grabbing Swift's backside.

'It was a definite grab.

"When he went to put his arm behind her, I saw her skirt go up and his hand went under there", Dent said. While the first days of the proceedings focused on the testimony and cross-examination of her "assailant, ' former #Denver-based DJ #David Mueller, the fourth day went and examined the course of events from Swift's view".
