Taylor Swift is expected to testify in a civil case filed by a Denver radio host who claims he lost his job after Swift accused him of groping her backstage at one of her concerts in 2013, according to media reports.
Swift had alleged that David Mueller touched her inappropriately before a concert at the Pepsi Center in the state capital in 2013.
Mueller launched a $3 million lawsuit against Swift for damages.
Swift countersued, claiming sexual assault.
The civil trial is set to begin Monday in the federal court in Denver and Swift is scheduled to testify.
“Right as the moment came for us to pose for the photo, he took his hand and put it up my dress and grabbed onto my ass cheek, and no matter how much I scooted over it was still there,” Swift said in a July 2016 deposition.
The singer said she felt “violated” and “completely stunned”.
