A photograph allegedly showing a radio DJ sexually assaulting Taylor Swift has been leaked.
The shot was taken at a meet-and-greet event in June 2013 where the pop star accused David Mueller of grabbing her ‘ass cheek’.
The photo, published by TMZ, shows Mueller’s right arm extended behind Swift, at the same level as her bum but his hand is not visible, Daily Mail reports.
The KYGO radio DJ initially sued Swift for slander and blamed his co-worker for the assault, before she counter-sued.
She said in her statement:
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. It was completely intentional, I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life.
The judge on Swift’s case has ordered for the photo to be sealed after the singer’s lawyer argued it would only be used for ‘scandalous’ purposes.
Swift said that she could not identify whether the photo captured the exact moment of the assault because she was so ‘uncomfortable’ and became ‘shocked and withdrawn’.
Details of the Swift case came to light when she was dismissed from jury duty because her experience would mean she couldn’t be impartial in an aggravated rape, kidnapping and domestic abuse trial.
Taylor was left ‘humiliated, embarrassed, and horrified’ according to her mother and her trial is ongoing.
