David Mueller Uses $1 Sacagawea Coin To Pay Off Taylor Swift Lawsuit
07 December, 2017, 23:41
In a rare interview, Swift opened up about her #MeToo moment: meeting DJ David Mueller, whom she alleges groped her during a backstage photo-op in 2013.
Speaking to TIME magazine, she said: "I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance". In the story, Swift said she had not yet received the dollar; she said "that act of defiance is symbolic in itself".
Like numerous women interviewed for the 2017 Person of the Year issue, Swift would not accept blame for the abuse she experienced.
Mueller, however, showed the Associated Press proof of the payment and said he sent a Sacagawea coin to her in the post on 28 November.
When Swift and Mueller's legal proceedings were in the national spotlight, Tay turned to Kesha - who's now involved her own lengthy legal battle against her former producer, Dr. Luke, whom she alleges sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her - for help.

"In that moment, I made a decision to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened", she continued. When I testified, I already had to watch this man bully, badger, and assault my team, including my mother.
Ashley Judd, Susan Fowler, Adama Iwu, Taylor Swift and Isabel Pascual (a pseudonym) are pictured on the Time magazine Person of the Year cover for 2017. But there's a disturbing dissonance between bemoaning to Time that "society has made this stuff so casual" and toeing the line around a man who bragged about grabbing women by the genitals and then wrote it off as "locker-room talk".
So it's wrong to say Swift's encounter with harassment is somehow less significant than what others have suffered, and it's wrong to say her stand against assault didn't matter. The federal jury in Denver, Colorado ruled in Swift's favor.
Just when you thought the man who was accused and found guilty of sexually assaulting Taylor Swift couldn't get any worse, he goes ahead and takes one "final jab" at the singer.
