Taylor Swift Files Countersuit Against Radio DJ Accused Of Assaulting Her

She plans to donate any money won to organizations that protect women.

Taylor Swift has filed a countersuit against David Mueller, the former Colorado radio DJ who was fired after he was accused of groping the singer while posing for a photo at the Pepsi Center in 2013. 

According to ThinkProgress, Swift's countersuit alleges that Mueller "intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission."

Additionally, Swift further goes on to specify that Mueller actions were deliberate. 

"Mueller did not merely brush his hand against Ms. Swift while posing for the photograph: he lifted her skirt and groped her," the suit states, going on to say the singer was "surprised, upset, offended, and alarmed” by the event, which "caused her extreme anxiety."

"Ms. Swift knows exactly who committed the assault -- it was Mueller -- and she is not confused in the slightest about whether her long-term business acquaintance, Mr. Haskell, was the culprit," they read. "Resolution of this Counterclaim will demonstrate that Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."

According to NME, Swift plans to bring the case to trial and donate any winnings to charities “dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard."
