DENVER, Sept 13, 2015:
A former Denver radio personality has filed a suit against singer Taylor Swift, saying he lost his job after being accused of inappropriately touching Swift during a photo session.
The suit was filed on Thursday in US district court in Denver by David Mueller.
The suit said Mueller was falsely accused by one of Swift’s security team of grabbing the singer’s buttocks backstage at the Pepsi Centre on June 2, 2013.
It said Mueller was fired two days later from his job at KYGO radio.
The suit said Mueller denies inappropriate contact with Swift and noted that he had met many other celebrities without incident.
A statement from Swift’s publicist on Saturday said Mueller’s employer was given evidence after the incident and made its own decision on his job status.
