Taylor Swift has recalled winning her sexual assault case against David Mueller, while on-stage during her concert in Florida.
The singer was groped by the radio DJ while taking a photo with him and a fan back in 2013.
Tuesday, August 14, marked one year since the singer won her case against him, and she got emotional as she spoke about her experience during her concert last night.
“Looking back, this exact day a year ago, I was not playing a sold out stadium in Tampa, I was in a courtroom in Denver, Colorado,” she told her fans. “I was there for a sexual assault case, and this day a year ago was the day the jury sided in my favour and said that they believed me.”
“I just think about all the people that weren’t believed, or the people who haven’t been believed, or the people who are afraid to speak up because they don’t think they will be believed,” the 28-year-old continued.
“And I just want to say that I’m sorry to everyone who ever wasn’t believed, because I don’t know what turn my life would have taken if people hadn’t believed in me when I said that something happened.
“I just wanted to say that we have so, so, so much further to go and I’m grateful to you guys for being there for me during what was a really, really horrible part of my life.”
“So, thank you for everything. Sorry, I just haven’t really talked about it and I’m just really not composed at all,” Taylor told fans.
The singer’s 2013 claim didn’t come to light until two years later, when David tried to sue the singer for defamation.
