Former radio host sues pop star

DENVER (AP) — A former Denver radio personality has filed a lawsuit against singer Taylor Swift, saying he lost his job after being accused of inappropriately touching Swift during a photo session.

The lawsuit was filed recently in U.S. District court in Denver by David Mueller.

Mueller was falsely accused by one of Swift’s security team of grabbing the singer’s buttocks backstage at the Pepsi Center on June 2, 2013, according to the lawsuit.

It says Mueller was fired two days later from his job at KYGO radio.

The lawsuit says Mueller denies inappropriate contact with Swift and noted that he had met many other celebrities without incident.

A statement from Swift’s publicist says Mueller’s employer was given evidence after the incident and made its own decision on his job status.
