‘I wanted to cry and vomit’: Taylor Swift’s mom gets emotional during sexual assault testimony
Andrea Swift’s full emotional testimony
by Amanda Ross
This week, witnesses on both sides of the Taylor Swift defamation-sexual assault trials took the stand to recount their experiences of the before, during and after of an alleged groping of the pop singer.
Swift's mother, Andrea, gave an emotional testimony yesterday for the jury. "I knew what happened, I heard it from her, I heard it from my daughter's mouth," Andrea Swift said. "He sexually assaulted her. Right there, that guy."
The dueling cases are centered around a sexual assault accusation by Swift. The pop star claims former radio DJ David Mueller groped her ass under her skirt while posing for a pre-concert photo in 2013, pictured below.
Swift reported the alleged assault to the station manager, who subsequently fired Mueller. Now, Mueller is suing Swift for defamation, claiming it was a false accusation that lead to his dismissal. He seeks at least $3 million in damages.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift is counter-suing for assault and battery in civil court, seeking $1 in damages as a symbolic restitution.
Andrea Swift said her daughter was "destroyed" over thanking Mueller and his partner for being at the meet-and-greet after the incident, in disbelief she said that in the aftermath.
"As a parent, it made me question why I taught her to be so polite in that moment," Swift said.
She also justified why Taylor and her team didn't report the groping immediately to police, explaining they worried about the incident defining her daughter's life and forcing her to "relive this awful moment over and over again."
Meanwhile, Mueller said he never assaulted Swift, claiming her accidentally grazed her rips rather than grabbing her ass under her skirt.
