Not a day has gone by over the past few months where someone hasn't asked the question: "Where on earth is Taylor Swift?"
As reported last week, Tay has been busy working on her next banger-filled album (YAY!) and she's also had something else pretty major going on.
Back in 2015, Colorado DJ David Mueller sued Taylor for defamation after she claimed that he inappropriately touched her at a meet-and-greet in 2013.
Mueller was fired as a result of Taylor's allegations.
Taylor then countersued for battery and assault and the case is set to go to trial in August 2017.
Taylor has hired gender studies professor, Lorraine Bayard de Volo to support her case.
In de Volo’s report, the University of Colorado professor explained that the disgraced DJ's unwanted advances on Swift were a result of his feeling emasculated when Taylor gave more attention to Mueller's girlfriend than to him.
"In Mr. Mueller’s description of the events, though Ms. Swift was cold and standoffish with him, she had a positive rapport with Ms. Melcher that included hugging and compliments," the report reads.
"Mr. Mueller said that he felt “invisible” in the shadow of his girlfriend... Given that idealizes masculinity entails dominance, leadership, authority, and assertiveness, this encounter would register as a blow to his sense of masculinity."
If the "Shake It Off" singer wins the lawsuit, she vows that any proceeds will go towards “charitable organisations dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard.”
If you or anyone you know has been sexually assaulted, it is important that you tell a trustworthy adult like your parents or a teacher.
