Taylor Swift filed a counter suit against David Mueller, a radio host who allegedly groped her during a meet-and-greet in 2013, on Wednesday.
In September, Mueller sued Swift stating that he was fired by his job and banned from the star’s concerts based on false allegations he groped Swift before her concert at the Pepsi Center in June of 2013.
Previously, Mueller was terminated twice from on-air radio jobs at other stations and hadn’t worked as an on-air personality since May 2006, according to the papers – admitted Swift was assaulted but blamed “his superior” at KYGO, Eddie Haskell, according to People.
“Ms. Swift knows exactly who committed the assault – it was Mueller – and she is not confused in the slightest about whether her long-term business acquaintance, Mr. Haskell, was the culprit,” the countersuit states. “Resolution of this Counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts.”
The papers claim that Mueller and his girlfriend were participating in a meet-and-greet with Swift, 25, when he “intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission.”
“Mueller did not merely brush his hand against Ms. Swift while posing for the photograph,” state the papers. “He lifted her skirt and groped her.”
Immediately after the incident, the “Bad Blood” singer was “surprised, upset, offended, and alarmed,” and informed her photographer, tour manager and security team, according to the papers.
According to the suit, Swift, who is demanding a jury trial, will be donating any money she wins from the suit to “charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.”
