Taylor Swift Recounts Being Groped by a DJ: "He Took His Hand and Put It Up My Dress"

Taylor Swift's July 26 deposition about an alleged groping incident was just released by a judge, and it's absolutely horrible. In the deposition (which Taylor's team hoped would remain sealed), the singer accuses DJ David Mueller of groping her while they posed for a photo.

The star claims she was "frantic" and "distressed" after the incident, and describes "feeling violated in a way I had never experienced before."

Mueller was fired two days after the incident, and sued Swift for slander in 2015. She countersued for assault and battery, and says that she'll donate any winnings to charities that protect women from sexual assault. Swift's lawyers claim she didn't intentionally cause Mueller to lose his job, and that his slander claim is irrelevant due to the statute of limitations.

FYI, a photo of the alleged incident has been sealed because—as Swift's team argues—it "will be shared for scandalous and prurient interests."
