David Mueller, the DJ found guilty of groping Taylor Swift, has claimed she’s ‘ruined his life’ and that he can’t even go near women without being afraid.
David Mueller, the 56-year-old DJ, was caught groping singer Swift, 28, in a red carpet photo from 2013 that she says saw him grab her bare bottom cheek underneath her dress.
The Shake It Off star sued Mueller for sexual assault to the amount of $1 and won, leaving him – amazingly so – feeling like the victim.
Mueller felt the need to sue Swift in a $3 million defamation lawsuit that he lost after a five-day trial in August of 2017.
He was subsequently sacked from his job as a DJ after he went public in an attempt to sue her, despite Swift wanting to keep the issue private.

A year after the claim against him, Mueller protested his innocence, saying that the guilty verdict in the lawsuit and unwanted media attention ruined his life.
Speaking to Radar Online, he reckons Swift is to blame for destroying his career: ‘How can you live with yourself? You ruined my life. I was not ready for the photograph,’ he said.
‘I admit it was awkward but I never grabbed her. It’s not even close to what happened.
‘Now I’m afraid to even talk to women. I feel like I’m in a prison. I’m not myself anymore. I don’t even go near women,’ he claimed.
‘It make me upset. I was always the gentleman. I would always say “hey, watch your language, there’s a lady here” and then I get accused of this.
Mueller has since landed a new radio gig under the guise of Confederate general Stonewall Jackson, where the station received a bomb threat in its first week.
Still denying he did anything wrong, the DJ said that he’d sue her again – despite losing the suit: ‘I know that if I didn’t do it I would have never been able to live with myself. At least now that my life is totally screwed up I’m proud of myself.’
