Singer Taylor Swift faces her alleged groper in court

AP Top Stories August 7 P

"After this happened, it was like a light switched off in my personality", Swift said.

At one point, McFarland brought up a photo from the meet-and-greet that shows Swift, Mueller, and Mueller's then-girlfriend Shannon Melcher. Swift revealed that she tried to get away from Mueller as she was "visibly uncomfortable", but the DJ allegedly did not let go straight away.

On whether she could see the incident directly: No, because her "ass is in the back of [her] body". "I felt what seemed to be a rib case or ribs", he said, CNN reported. She rejected Mueller's claim that their interaction was basic "jostling" for a photo and dismissed the possibility that she had misidentified Mueller.

The 27-year-old singer took the stand for an hour, wearing a colorful floral dress, and appeared to be in good spirits prior to being questioned by Mueller's attorney. "This was not an action shot".

Call said he fired the DJ because of his shifting accounts of the incident, and because the photo showed that Mueller's hand was "not where it was supposed to be". The photo has become a central piece of evidence in the trial, and one which the judge hoped to keep out of the public eye, saying that it would "significantly complicate jury selection".

This post was syndicated from The Guardian Nigeria Newspaper - Nigeria and World News. She testified that "this was something I did not want known".

"Yet here we are, years later", Swift added.

"'Mom, a guy just grabbed my (rear end) in the meet-and-greet, '" Andrea Swift said her daughter told her.

After hearing Swift's side of the story, Andrea stated that she wanted to vomit and cry. "This is a fact".

"He stayed attached to my bare ass-cheek as I lurched away from him", the pop star said, explaining that someone would have had to have been underneath her to see the actual groping.

Swift's team has said that Mueller, now 55, groped Swift's bare backside during the event, which took place at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013.

She said she had no reaction to learning that Mueller, then 51, had been fired over the incident.

The singer, who was joined in court by her mother and father Scott Swift, has said she will donate any damages awarded in her suit to charities that fight sexual assault on women.

Swift maintains he sexually assaulted her by lifting her skirt and fondling her buttocks. "Long enough for me to be completely sure that it was intentional".

The trial, which began Monday and is expected to last up to nine days, has already featured testimony from Mueller - who denied he groped Swift and suggested someone else might have done it - and her mother, Andrea Swift, who didn't witness the encounter but believed her daughter who told her about it. Her lawsuit makes the case that her active participation in the trial will "serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts".
