David Mueller has lost twice to Taylor Swift in court over the past few days.
But the DJ is refusing to go down without a public fight.
Last Friday, a judge tossed out Mueller’s $3 million lawsuit against the singer, in which he tried to argue that Swift defamed him and was responsible for his firing because she alleged he grabbed her butt back in 2013.
Following a concert in Denver that year, Muller posed backstage for a picture with the superstar.
She claims that he raised her skirt and grabbed her bare butt while standing along her side, a charge that eventually got Mueller axed from his gig as a local radio host.
Not only did Mueller unsuccessfully sue Swift for making this allegation, he found himself on the receiving end of a counter-suit.
After four hours of deliberation on Monday, an eight-member jury unanimously decided Mueller did assault and batter Swift four years ago during this meet-and-greet.
He owes the pop star $1 as a result.
More importantly, though, he was held accountable for his inappropriate actions, a verdict Swift hopes will have a far-reaching effect going forward.
"My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard," the global icon said in a statement, adding:
"Therefore, I will be making donations in the near future to multiple organizations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves."
How admirable, right?
Yes, Mueller may even agree.
Yet he continues to insist he did nothing wrong.
Speaking to Good Morning America on Tuesday for the first time since he was found guilty, the DJ maintained his innocence.
"I didn't do what they say I did. I didn't do it," Mueller said. "I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under her skirt and I can pass a polygraph."
A polygraph is a lie detector test, but it has never been proven to be 100% accurate. Or anything close to 100% accurate, hence why its results are not permitted as evidence in a court of law.
Regarding the notorious photograph of himself, his girlfriend and Swift, Mueller simply says:
"That wasn't ready. I wasn't invited to be in the photo. So it was - I just moved into the shot the best I could."
Mueller testified that he may have touched Swift's ribs with his knuckles during their encounter, saying on the stand:
"Because I was a larger person, I thought it would be a good idea if I closed my hand, so I didn't poke Taylor with my fingers."
But Swift stood strong against this defense. She made herself as clear as possible during her testimony:
"He did not touch my rib. He did not touch my arm. He did not touch my hand. He grabbed my bare ass."
Despite his multimillion dollar lawsuit against Swift, Mueller says he was never after money.
He just wants a chance to work again after being let go by radio station KYGO.
"I asked for something in writing which stated that there was a misunderstanding and I can take that and possibly convince someone at a radio station to hire me," he explained to GMA.
Alas, we doubt he'll be receiving any note of this nature.
