Taylor Swift files counterclaim in groping lawsuit

DENVER (AP) - Taylor Swift has filed a counterclaim against a former Denver radio host who sued her after he said he lost his job because of false accusations that he inappropriately touched her during a photo session.

David Mueller sued Swift in U.S. District Court in Denver in September, saying he was falsely accused by a member of her security team of grabbing the singer's buttocks backstage at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013. Mueller, who denies inappropriate contact, says he was fired two days later from his job at KYGO radio.

 

Swift's counter argument filed Wednesday says Mueller claims his superior at KYGO committed the alleged assault. But Swift points the finger solely at Mueller.

She's asking for a jury trial. Her publicists couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday night.
