'It was a definite grab.

Swift said a security guard working for her witnessed the groping. "I have seen hundreds of meet-and-greet photos", Call said, adding he had never seen any with hands positioned like Mueller's. "It was intentional. He stayed latched onto my bare a. cheek".

Asked whether she had sought witnesses, Ms Swift - who was not present at the encounter - she said she had no reason to doubt her daughter.

The photographer who took pictures at the meet and greet also testified in court spoke in favour of Taylor Swift telling the court that she thought Swift had made a amusing move during the photo, at first believing she had tripped. "(His hand) didn't let go", she told the jury. "It was a very shocking thing". I never have said anything different, ' she revealed.

The singer's mother said she and her daughter's managers made a decision to tell Mueller's bosses that he had assaulted the singer, hoping he would be fired but not asking them to do so.

The legal back-and-forth was initiated by DJ Mueller, 55, who claims he lost his job after Swift reported him to the radio station.

A quick debrief on the now highly publicized case: In 2013, Swift was at a photo meet-and-greet alongside Mueller.

Mueller filed a lawsuit against Swift, her mother, and her radio promotions director Frank Bell in 2015 for what he said was a false claim that they used to convince KYGO to terminate him. In one instance, Swift was asked if she could see the incident directly.

It is in tears that the mother of Taylor Swift testified at the bar of the court of Denver in the United States: "I know that it happened, I learned from it, I heard it from the mouth of my daughter".

In the U.S., women are expected to feel bad for men who hurt and disrespect them.

Greg Dent testified Friday he only looked for David Mueller after a pre-concert photo session was over and Swift complained she had been groped. "A woman gets assaulted, a woman reports it, and she gets sued".

Swift's certainty about the alleged assault was also questioned, but Swift remained steadfast, and stood firmly by her initial statements.

Swift counter-sued, alleging sexual assault.

Swift countersued, claiming Mueller sexually assaulted her.

"The sass that Taylor showed today, were she a black woman could have very well been perceived as aggressive and combative in a courtroom.This doesn't take away from Taylor standing up for herself, of course not".

Swift's account was backed by testimony from others including her photographer, Stephanie Simbeck, who on Thursday said she recalled seeing Mueller "put his hand on (Swift's) butt".

When she was pressed on why she did not alert her bodyguard backstage when the KYGO DJ touched her, Swift frankly admitted that she was too shocked to do so.
