DJ says Taylor Swift's $1 payment is in the mail

Here's why Taylor Swift is also Time's Person of the Year 2017

4 important things Taylor Swift said about sexual assault and harassment

In her interview with Time, Swift opened up about what it was like to win in court against Mueller, while also revealing that he had yet to pay her.

The 27-year-old singer countersued for battery and sexual assault and after a judge dismissed his slander case, a jury ruled in her favour.

The radio DJ who was found guilty of groping Taylor Swift during a photo op has officially paid the hitmaker the symbolic $1 he owed her. At the time of the decision he said he might appeal. "You can ask me a million questions".

He said: 'I mean if this is all about women's rights. "I never have said anything different".

Back in 2013 when the groping happened, Swift privately reported Mueller who was sacked by the radio station. I squirmed and lurched sideways to get away from him, but he wouldn't let go. "He had a handful of my ass".

For one, Swift pledged money to charities for sexual assault victims. In the weekend following the trial, the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) reported a 35 percent increase for its national hotline. As SWIFT's suit requested, the jury has awarded her $1. "This man hadn't considered any formalities when he assaulted me". In that moment, I made a decision to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. When I testified, I already had to watch this man bully, badger, and assault my team, including my mother.

Swift, who called the trial process "demoralizing", said that many people didn't realize that Mueller had sued her first. "Two years later, he sued me". There was an audible gasp in the courtroom when I was named as the defendant. Meanwhile Taylor landed on the cover of Time Magazine, with other women who've been sexually assaulted, and told the story about how Mueller reached under her dress and grabbed her. Her clear-eyed testimony marked one of several major milestones in the conversation around sexual harassment this year.

Before the Harvey Weinstein allegations broke, and before #MeToo swept the Internet, Taylor Swift testified in court on August 10 about being assaulted in a room full of people.
