Radio Host David Mueller Sues Taylor Swift Over Inappropriate Touching Accusation

 

A former radio host seeking retribution has filed a lawsuit again pop phenomenon Taylor Swift following allegations that he lifted "Swift's skirt with his hand," touching her bottom.

The incident at hand occurred before Swift's Pepsi Center gig on June 2, 2013 which eventually let to radio personality David Mueller bring fired from his long time job. Mueller, who worked for Denver's KYGO-FM radio station, claims that the accusation surfaced after he and his girlfriend met the "Love Story" singer and took a quick photo with her.

He detailed that he shook Swift's hand and departed form the photo area only for he and his girlfriend to be approached by the "Blank Space" singer's bodyguards shortly after, eventually being escorted out of the venue. The lawsuit describes that Mueller was fired from his radio job just two days after the occurrence, NME reports.

Mueller, who had a career in radio for a lengthy 20 years, fully denies touching the singer. As the Denver Post notes, Mueller has been banned from all future Swift shows for life. The radio personality once referred to as Jackson on the Ryno and Jackson morning show, requested a jury trail--Swift has yet to comment on the lawsuit.

This isn't the first time Swift has come into contact with inappropriate touching. Just last month, the "Wildest Dreams" singer reacted angrily towards a fan who grabbed her during a Edmonton gig at the Rexall Place venue. Fan captured footage shows Swift strutting down the runway during "Bad Blood" while a man reaches out, grabbing onto her leg. Immediately, she moved away and shot an angry glare in the man's direction.

Available to watch via a fan's Instagram post, security was "on hand right away" and "Taylor carried on like a pro."
