Taylor Swift To Testify In Groping Case; Singer Promises To Donate Any Awarded Damages To Charity

New reports suggest that Taylor Swift will likely testify in the upcoming groping case. According to reports, the “Shake It Off” singer will testify in the groping case which is expected to last about two weeks. It is also reported that opening statements could commence on Tuesday.

Swift has managed to stay out of the media for about six months now but it seems fans will be seeing more of the singer this week as she is about to take on David Mueller. It is reported by People via Yahoo that the Grammy winner will be testifying against Mueller, a radio talk show host who allegedly groped the singer during a pre-concert meet-and-greet. The incident took place when Swift, who is now 27 was just 23 years old.

However, Mueller sued Swift two years after the alleged incident claiming damages for being accused falsely. He filed a lawsuit against the singer in September 2015, claiming that he lost his job after Swift’s security team falsely accused him of groping her at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013. He argued that Swift should have gone to the police instead of informing his bosses, who did not hesitate to fire Mueller. In addition, he also alleged that his colleague, Eddie Haskell, also assaulted swift sexually. He requested the court to grant him $3 million in damages.

It is reported by the Hollywood reporter that Swift countersued Mueller a month later claiming redress for sexual assault. The countersuit stated that “Ms. Swift knows exactly who committed the assault—it was Mueller—and she is not confused in the slightest about whether her long-term business acquaintance, Mr. Haskell, was the culprit.” The singer is also reported to have said Mueller intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped an intimate part of her body with his hand, against her will, and without her permission and in an inappropriate manner. Interesting court documents have revealed that it is unlikely that either party will resolve for settlement.

Swift is now seeking the court to award her $1 million plus holding the Mueller responsible so as to serve as an example for his likes. Furthermore, the singer will not be the only one testifying against Mueller, as her mother, Andrea Swift, her photographer who captured the incident, her bodyguard and a senior member of her management team will also be testifying. However, Mueller, as well as his former boss and some members of Swift’s entourage will also testify.

The singer has promised to donate any damages awarded to her from the suit to “charitable organizations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.” It is reported that it might be difficult for fans who intend to attend the trial to get seats as only 32 seats will be available each day during the trial. The seats will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis and will be available for the first 32 people in line starting at 7 a.m.

Kristen Stewart Open to Dating Men Again; Missing Robert Pattinson?

New reports state that Kristen Stewart would be open to dating men again. According to reports, the actress recently revealed that she would be open to dating men again in the future. Does this mean that she misses her ex-boyfriend Robert Pattinson? As fans already know, Kristen Stewart was in an open relationship with Robert Pattinson during the Twilight years of the duo.

Updates about their high-profile relationship were mesmerizing to fans and many believed at that time that the Hollywood actors will make it to the aisle. Unfortunately, the pair had to go their separate ways when Robert became aware of Stewart’s scandalous romance with director Rupert Sanders. It is reported by CDL that the scandal shattered Robert’s hopes for a future with Kristen and they ended up parting ways in 2013.

The reports also stated that the Hollywood actress has been in several relationships with girlfriends, including St. Vincent, and Alicia Carligle. Stewart is currently in a relationship with Stella Maxwell. However, it is reported that Robert, on the other hand, is currently engaged to FKA Twigs. Stewart has now revealed some crucial detail about her sexuality and romance life in Harper Bazaar’s U.K.’s September 2017 issue.

When the actress was asked if she would date men in the future, she replied saying “Yeah, totally. Definitely, some people aren’t like that. Some people know that they like grilled cheese and they’ll eat it every day for the rest of their lives. I want to try everything. If I have grilled cheese once I’m like, ‘That was cool, what’s next?’”

Although Stewart’s relationship with Stella Maxwell is reportedly strong, the actress’ recent statement has led fans to speculate that she could be missing what she had for three years with her ex-boyfriend, Robert. Other reports are suggesting that the actress may be considering getting back with Robert.

Stewart also told E! in March that her coming out “wasn’t like, ‘Let’s do this thing that’s going to be so important.’ I just thought it was like a nice, light… and also yeah, I’m so utterly proud that I’ve had so many people be like, ‘Thank you,’ and I’m like, ‘No, thank you.’ It’s kind of mutual, full circle.”

It is also reported that the actress stated a few months back that she would love to reprise her role in another Twilight movie as Bella Swan. All these have made fans to conclude that Stewart misses the time she spent with Robert. However, these are mere speculations, as the actress has not publicly confirmed any of it.

Meanwhile, it is been reported that Robert might not make it to the aisle with FKA Twigs as the pair have been avoiding questions about their wedding plans and the future of their relationship over the past months. With the current situation, there are grounds to believe that Robert and Stewart might still get back together.
