Taylor Swift Still Hasn't Received the $1 From David Mueller for Her Sexual Assault Case

Taylor Swift Addresses Her Sexual Assault Trial in a Rare Interview

David Mueller, whom she had accused of groping her in a photo op, she asked Mueller to pay her "a symbolic" $1.

In response to the interview, Mueller told The Associated Press that he mailed Swift a $1 coin last week, providing the AP with a letter that showed that his payment was sent on November 28.

The A.P. reports that Mueller previously told them he was going to pay the Sacajawea coin as "a final jab at the singer in a case her side called a win for all women". In a new interview with TIME magazine, Taylor revealed that he has not even paid her that dollar. But luckily, his little "poke"-or his claim that Swift somehow ruined his life (when, in fact, Mueller sued her first for defamation-and a whopping $3 million dollars in damages-after she complained about the assault and he lost his job; that suit was thrown out) won't likely ruffle Swift's feathers".

The 27-year-old singer countersued for battery and sexual assault and after a judge dismissed his slander case, a jury ruled in her favour. My mom was so upset after her cross-examination, she was physically too ill to come to court the day I was on the stand. In that moment, I made a decision to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. When I testified, I already had to watch this man bully, badger, and assault my team, including my mother. "Imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance". I'm told it was the most amount of times the word "ass" has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court. The details were all skewed, as they often are. She appears on the cover and speaks inside the magazine about her experience during the "demoralizing court process". There was an audible gasp in the courtroom when I was named as the defendant.

Our essential brief on culture, the news, and more.

Time included Swift as one of the Silence Breakers for her bravery in helping to shine a light on the topic of sexual assault, and in the months since then, the #MeToo movement has taken down a number of powerful men in the entertainment business and politics.

'My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you.
