Radio DJ adds slander to Taylor Swift lawsuit

A radio host suing Taylor Swift has added two slander claims to his ongoing lawsuit against the pop star.

David Mueller launched legal action against the Bad Blood singer in September (15), claiming he had lost his job at KYGO radio station in Denver, Colorado after Taylor made false allegations about him groping her bottom during a meet-and-greet backstage at a concert in the city back in 2013.


Taylor countersued in October (15), insisting her claims are true and asked for a jury trial to resolve the matter, with the legal paperwork stating: "Mueller alone was the perpetrator of the humiliating and wrongful conduct targeted against Ms. Swift, and will serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."


In November (15), Mueller stepped up their legal battle by asking a judge to dismiss the pop star's countersuit against him. Now he's upping the ante again with an amended complaint filed on Thursday (25Feb16).


In the documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, Mueller claims Swift's statements are false and have "caused harm to his reputation, profession and standing in the community."


Mueller, who originally sued the star for loss of wages, has always maintained Swift was groped by another worker at the station.
