Taylor Swift Talks About Her Sexual Assault Case

Taylor Swift Talks About Her Sexual Assault Case

The former radio DJ found to have groped Taylor Swift said he tried to take "a little poke" at her by sending her a $1 Sacajawea coin, according to the Associated Press.

However, the court ruled in Taylor's favour and she is now seen as one of the "Silence Breakers", who encouraged the #MeToo on social media.

Mueller told the AP he sent the dollar in the form of a Sacagawea coin as a final jab to the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer. He sued Swift for up to $3 million in 2015, claiming her accusations were false and had resulted in his firing from Denver radio station KYGO. Mueller continues to deny that he groped Swift.

I represent United States of America , not Donald Trump: Skiist hottie Lindsey Vonn
Vonn endured an underwhelming start to the new season, crashing out of last week's opening downhill event at Lake Louise. Away from the slopes, Vonn also appears willing to put her head above the parapet and speak out about USA politics.

'My mom was so upset after her cross-examination, she was physically too ill to come to court the day I was on the stand.

In a written Q&A with Time, Swift explained why she spoke so directly to Mueller. In that moment, I made a decision to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. Why should I be polite?

He said: 'I mean if this is all about women's rights. The magazine named the Reputation singer as one of their 2017 "Silence Breakers", along with Ashley Judd, Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, and Isabel Pascual - all women from very different backgrounds who, like countless others, experienced sexual harassment or assault. "Not mine", Swift said during the trial. At the time, I was headlining a major arena tour and there were a number of people in the room that saw this plus a photo of it happening. "Imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance". The details were all skewed, as they often are. The pop star said she chatted with Kesha, a musician who's had a long legal battle with alleged abuser Dr. Luke, about her situation, and it "really helped to talk to someone who had been through the demoralizing court process", Swift said. Mueller, however, still hasn't paid up, an "act of defiance" Swift believes "is symbolic in itself".
