The man accused of sexually assaulting Taylor Swift during a meet and greet is finally speaking out! DJ David Mueller said on Nov. 29 that he has no intention of grabbing Taylor, and that if he touched her it was an accident. Hear his full side of the story, right here!
DJ David Mueller is finally talking about the accusations that he reached under Taylor Swift’s skirt to grab her butt during a photo op at a meet and greet, and he says it was all a big misunderstanding. In an interview with Detroit’s Mojo in the Morning, David says he was “trying to get my right hand behind Taylor because Shannon (his girlfriend) was on the other side of Taylor,” during the photo, but Taylor claimed to David’s attorney that “it’s impossible to know if that was in the moment before or as he’s grabbed on, but I was there, so I felt it, so I didn’t just see it in a photo afterward.”
So, did he actually touch the pop star? “I’ve got my hand closed and my palm down and I reach behind toward Taylor,” he continued. “Our hands touched and our arms crossed and that’s all I remember, it went behind her and her hand went behind me. My hand was not touching her body.”
Taylor absolutely disagrees, explaining during her lawsuit that “right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, [David] took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there…it was completely intentional, I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life…I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before…for someone to violate that hospitality in that way, I was completely stunned.”
David is heated at the allegations that he touched her bare booty, claiming it’s a flat-out lie. “My hand was never under her skirt, I never grabbed her, my hand was not open. What I’m hearing now is that I stuck my hand under her skirt and grabbed her bare bottom.”
David says he would actually have preferred to be arrested so he could “have a chance to defend myself in criminal court. I never had a chance to defend myself. I’d never been in trouble in my life, I’ve never been in trouble for anything. I’ve never been inappropriate with any women.”
Taylor’s security guard Greg Dent doesn’t buy David’s story, saying “Well, before the photo was taken is when I saw him go to put his arm around her and him lift up her skirt. She reacted, pushed her skirt down, and jumped to the side and went closer to the girl that was with him.”
