Don't touch Taylor Swift's a**. Seriously. She just filed a huge lawsuit against a radio DJ who allegedly got too friendly with his hands backstage during a meet and greet.

Taylor says that a former radio host, David Mueller, groped her during a fan meet-and-greet in 2013. She just filed a countersuit against him after he filed a lawsuit against her in September, claiming he was falsely accused and fired from his job because of the incident.

The alleged moment occurred during a photo session backstage before Tay played Denver's Pepsi Center during her Red Tour on June 2, 2013. According to the countersuit filed by Taylor, "In the course of his meet and greet with Ms. Swift, Mueller intentionally reached under her skirt, and groped with his hand an intimate part of her body in an inappropriate manner, against her will, and without her permission. Mueller did not merely brush his hand against Ms. Swift while posing for the photograph: he lifted her skirt and groped her. "

Tay Tay "was surprised, upset, offended, and alarmed" by the DJ's actions. "This event caused her extreme anxiety because she did not know that Mueller, or anyone else, would grope her private and intimate body part, during an event to which she opened access to her fans and radio personnel as a show of her appreciation."

What a creepy thing to do, right?! The DJ swears up and down that he wasn't the one who touched her. He says he was at the event with his wife and that she was actually there when the picture took place. He also states that one of his co-workers came up to him at the show, after the photo opportunity, and told him that he was the one who groped Tay's private areas.

But, Taylor's team was not having any of that. They apparently convinced his employer because they didn't believe him. After she complained to her team about the inappropriate touching, the DJ was fired from his job. He had been in radio for over 20 years, and was making $150,000 a year at the station before he was axed.

The singer isn't buying that it-was-another-person BS. Taylor dismisses it in her suit saying that the, "newfound claim that he is the 'wrong guy.'" She "knows exactly who committed the assault. It was Mueller."

According to NME, T-Swift has requested a jury trial and says any financial reward from the lawsuit would be donated to charities "dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard."
