Taylor Swift's mum sobs while testifying against Denver DJ
"I am being blamed for the unfortunate events of his life that are a product of his decisions, not mine", she said.
Taylor Swift appeared in court Thursday morning to testify against a radio DJ who allegedly groped her during a meet and greet in 2013, and her testimony was definition clapback.
They quickly found the Mueller image in her camera, and Swift said, "That's him", Simbeck told jurors.
Mueller told his own lawyer, Gabe McFarland, he purposefully closed his hand during the photo opportunity with Taylor, "so as to not poke" her.
Swift, who has 85 million followers on Twitter and 102 million followers on Instagram, earned $170 million in the year to June 2016 following a world tour and her best-selling "1989" album, according to Forbes Magazine. But Swift's mother said the police were not called for fear of publicity.
"When she told me someone had grabbed her, I was very upset", Andrea Swift said, describing her daughter as "really shaken" and humiliated.
When asked how, the photographer said: "I saw his hand on her butt".
Dent and Simbeck are listed as possible witnesses in the Denver trial.
Lastly, KYGO Program Director Eddie Haskell - who once managed Mueller - told reporters outside of the courtroom he couldn't believe David suggested he was the one who groped Swift.
She dismissed attempts to dissuade her from her story and rejected the suggestion that she had continued greeting guests for as long as 30 minutes after the alleged assault, as if nothing had happened.
Singer Taylor Swift took the stand to testify in court Thursday.
Swift maintains he sexually assaulted her by lifting her skirt and fondling her buttocks.
"My hand was at rib-cage level and apparently it went down", he said in earlier testimony.
Both Andrea Swift and Bell were adamant they had no reason to question Swift's honesty, that over the course of many years and thousands of meet-and-greets, they had never encountered a situation like this, that it fact, it scared them so much Swift no longer performs in the crowd at concerts and they have much tighter security procedures with fans.
(6) According to Rolling Stone, at one point, Mueller himself stated: "My hand came into contact with part of her body".

It doesn't look good for David Mueller... He started testifying Tuesday and was being questioned Wednesday by Swift's attorney Douglas Baldridge about his claim that Swift falsely accused him of groping her before a 2013 concert.
He sued the 10-time Grammy victor two years after the incident - but says he's not asking for the $3 million advised by a damages expert.
The singer, who was joined in court by her mother and father Scott Swift, has said she will donate any damages awarded in her suit to charities that fight sexual assault on women.
Swift's lawyers have said she does not know Mueller and has no incentive to target him or to fabricate a story.
Mueller is a former radio show host.
Swift asserts she never demanded Mueller be fired.
Mueller, then a host on the top-rated radio station KYGO, had been invited to meet the star before the show.
She let them know: Those gray areas others will try to tell you exist when someone touches you in a way you don't ask to be touched? But they do want others to know "that you can always say no".
Swift counter-sued for assault and battery, asking for damages of $1.
She later informed Mueller's radio station, KYGO, which subsequently launched an internal investigation that resulted in Mueller's termination. He's seeking $3 million, saying the allegation cost him his job and reputation.
