Taylor Swift


Taylor Swift was allegedly groped by a Colorado DJ during a fan meet-and-greet in June 2013, filing a lawsuit against him that she's been battling since.

In fact, on Friday, the judge in the case granted her the right to seal one of the photos that is being used as evidence in the case. However, Swift was denied a request to withhold any other evidence, including the deposition she gave in July.

E! News obtained the documents that detail the alleged incident with the 98.5 KYGO DJ David Mueller, including the transcript of Swift's videotaped deposition.

"Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he 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," she explained. "It was completely intentional, I've never been so sure of anything in my life."

Swift said she could still easily recall the emotions that overcame her at that moment.

"I remember being frantic, distressed, feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before," Swift said in the deposition. "A meet-and-greet is supposed to be a situation where you're thanking people for coming, you're supposed to be welcoming people into your home, which is the arena for that day, and for someone to violate that hospitality in that way, I was completely stunned."

Meanwhile, Mueller originally filed a lawsuit against Swift in October 2015, claiming he was fired from his job at KYGO over the "false allegations" that he grabbed her butt while taking the photo.

In response, Swift filed a counter suit for assault and battery. E! News obtained the documents in which she demanded a jury trial and promised  that any money she wins from the trial will go to "charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard."

The July deposition was filed in support of Swift's attempt to win the case before it goes to trial.

Swift's camp also filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing that the singer didn't intentionally interfere with Mueller's contractual relationship with the radio station, and that the statute of limitations had run out for his slander claim.

The motion claims that KYGO was "given evidence immediately after the incident" for which they "made their independent decision."
