Taylor Swift testified Thursday former DJ David Mueller groped her during a meet-and-greet before a 2013 concert in Denver.
"It was a definite grab, a very long grab," Swift said in federal court in Denver, where the civil trial is taking place. "I felt him grab onto my bare ass cheek."
The singer testified she attempted to move away from Mueller but "he would not let go."
"He stayed latched onto my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him quite quickly," she told the courtroom.
The 27-year-old said the alleged incident was "a very shocking thing that never happened to me before."
"This was something I did not want known," Swift explained adding she first mentioned the incident about 15 minutes later to her photographer Stephanie Simbeck.
She also said security guard Greg Dent saw Mueller "lift my skirt" and grab her but that it was it was impossible for anyone to see Mueller's hand beneath her skirt and on her buttock because they were posing for the photo with their backs to a wall. She said that someone would have had to have been underneath her to see the actual groping "and we didn't have anyone positioned there."
Mueller testified Wednesday that the photo taken before the concert was "weird and awkward," but he insisted that he touched Swift in the ribs, not in the rear. Mueller testified his hand was touching Swift's skirt after he put his arm around her and their arms got crossed: "My hand was at rib-cage level and apparently it went down."
Mueller sued Swift and others on her team, claiming they cost him his job and is seeking up to $3 million in damages. Swift countersued, alleging sexual assault, and is asking for a symbolic $1 judgment.
