Taylor Swift has described in court the moment she says she was groped by a radio presenter during a meet and greet.

“It was a definite grab. A very long grab,” said the singer, who is suing radio DJ David Mueller over the alleged incident, which he denies.

“It was intentional. He stayed latched onto my bare ass cheek.

“I felt him grab onto my ass cheek under my skirt. He grabbed my ass underneath my skirt.”

She added: “He stayed latched on to my bare ass cheek as I lurched away from him. (His hand) didn’t let go.”

“It was a very shocking thing. I had never dealt with something like this before,” Swift said.

The alleged assault occurred in 2013, during a Denver stopover on Taylor Swift’s Red tour.

Mueller, then a host on the top-rated radio station KYGO, had been invited to meet her before the show.

Swift took the stand the day after her mother gave her testimony and described how she wanted to “vomit and cry” when Swift told her about the alleged incident.
