Taylor Swift on getting groped by Denver DJ: “It was like somebody switched the lights off in my personality”

It’s been about three years since the day Taylor Swift alleges that Denver DJ David Mueller groped her during a meet-and-greet photo op, and the issue still hasn’t been put to rest.

It’s been about three years since the day Taylor Swift alleges that Denver DJ David Mueller groped her during a meet-and-greet photo op, and the issue still hasn’t been put to rest.

TMZ got ahold of Swift’s deposition from a meeting with Mueller’s lawyers this July. Swift initially sued Mueller, then a 98.5 KYGO DJ known as Jackson, in 2013 for reaching up her skirt and grabbing her butt while they posed for a photo together.

“As soon as he grabbed my ass, I became shocked and withdrawn and was barely able to say, ‘Thanks for coming,’ which is what I say to everybody,” she said in this summer’s deposition.

“It was like somebody switched the lights off in my personality.”

About two weeks ago, a judge agreed to seal the photo from the incident.
