Taylor Swift Gets Sued For Allegedly Getting Radio DJ Fired
A lawsuit against Taylor Swift has been filed by a former Denver radio personality, saying he lost his job after he was accused of inappropriately touching the singer during a photo session.
David Mueller, a former radio DJ for KYGO radio, filed the lawsuit Thursday, Sept. 10, in U.S. District court in Denver.
According to the lawsuit, Mueller says he was falsely accused of lifting Swift's skirt and grabbing her butt backstage at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013. The claim was made by one of Swift's security team.
According to court documents, the backstage event was apart of Muellers job duties with the station KYGO, in which he often was required to interact with celebrities.
Two days after this whole ordeal, Mueller was fired as a DJ for KYGO radio.
Mueller denies inappropriate contact with Swift in the lawsuit, as well as pointing out he had met many other celebrities without a problem.
On Saturday, a statement was made from Swift's publicist saying Mueller's employer was actually given evidence after the incident occurred, and that the employer made its own decision on his job status. A response asking her to be more specific about the evidence was not answered.
In "the photograph, Ms. Swift is smiling and hugging Ms. Melcher. Although Mr. Mueller's hand is behind Ms. Swift and therefore not visible, it is clear that her skirt is in place and is not being lifted by Mr. Mueller's hand,..."Similarly, Ms. Swift's hand is behind Mr. Mueller and therefore not visible." said the lawsuit.
