Back in September 2015, a radio DJ from Denver, CO named David Mueller filed a lawsuit against Taylor Swift after he was fired for allegedly groping Taylor’s ass during a meet-and-greet in 2013. David swore he would never, and blamed his boss at KYGO, Eddie Haskell, of being the perv responsible for the butt touch.
Taylor’s team shot back with a counter-suit saying, yeah, you would. And then about a year later, an extremely incriminating photo made its way online showing David Mueller with his hand in the vicinity of Taylor’s butt region. Taylor reportedly wanted this mess to go to trial, and planned to donate any courtroom winnings to sexual assault charities. Taylor might want to start drawing up a short list of charities, because TMZ says it’s going to trial next week.
Jury selection will reportedly begin on Monday in Colorado. They add that there are only 32 seats in the courtroom for the public to watch the trial, and they’ll be given away on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 7am. For those who don’t get a ticket to watch the trial, there will be an overflow room with television that will hold 75. Taylor won’t be in court every day, so there’s a very good chance that those hopeful ticket holders will have waited in line for the chance to experience eight boring hours of bailiff announcements in an uncomfortable itchy-upholstery court gallery chair. 7am? In the hot August sun? No thank you.
TMZ calls Taylor’s trial the “hottest ticket in town.” Maybe for some of Taylor’s crazier fans, who possibly reacted to this news by looking at last-minute flight deals to Denver. But is watching Taylor Swift testify against the gross grown man who put an unwanted hand on her something anyone really wants to camp out overnight on the street to get tickets for? That doesn’t sound like it would be high up on a list of fan experiences you’d want to remember forever with a $30 t-shirt.
