Taylor Swift Details Being Allegedly Sexually Assaulted By Radio DJ In Newly Released Deposition

More details about Taylor Swift‘s sexual assault case are coming out!

In case you didn’t know, the songstress is locked into a fierce legal battle with former radio host David Mueller, who sued her for slander. The Denver DJ claims he was wrongly accused of groping her at a 2013 concert, which ended up losing him his job.

The Blank Space artist then counter sued David for sexual assault and battery.

Well, DailyMail.com has obtained newly released transcripts from her July deposition, revealing Taylor’s “shocked” state after allegedly being groped:

“As soon as he grabbed my ass, I became shocked and withdrawn and was barely able to say ‘thanks for coming’, which is what I say to everybody. I was barely able to get words out, and it was like somebody switched the lights off in my personality. So it was pretty quick that he was gone after that.”

The 26-year-old continued to explain how she wasn’t even able to tell her staff after allegedly being grabbed:

“I didn’t have one split second without a fan in front of me until that moment and I didn’t want people to find out about this. Anything that I say in front of fans could end up in the press, and I didn’t want that.”

As we also previously reported, Miz Swift asked the judge to seal photos from the meet-and-greet with the radio DJ. In her deposition though, the pop star wasn’t entirely sure the pictures revealed the exact moment she was assaulted since she recalled being “uncomfortable because a strange man’s hand just lifted up my shirt and was either nearing my ass cheek, freshly grabbed onto or refusing to let go.”

The Grammy winner’s mom Andrea Swift also spoke during the deposition about the alleged incident, sharing her daughter was left “humiliated, embarrassed, and horrified”:

“I felt like I wanted to cry and throw up at the same time. She was upset. She cried. We cried. It was – it was just inconceivable.”

While Mr. Mueller has claimed it was actually his coworker who grabbed the celeb’s butt, Taylor recognized he was not the one who assaulted her.

Wow.

We’ll continue to keep you updated with any new details!

Amber Heard Seen With Scary-Looking Arm Marks Amid Deposition Developments With Johnny Depp

It’s no doubt a case of unfortunate timing, but whatever is going on with Amber Heard‘s arm, let’s just hope it’s something minor and innocent.

The actress was spotted flying into LAX on Friday (above), showing off a few noticeable, jarring red marks on her right arm when she pulled her sleeve up.

Those same marks were later seen after her deposition on Saturday against her ex, Johnny Depp, as she left the meeting and once again wore a shirt that revealed the unique-looking marks.

Of course, all this comes after the scandal brewing around a leaked video tape of Depp and Heard that was downright scary at times, though obviously that tape was shot a while ago — so it isn’t the cause for these bruises.

Whatever may be going on with her arm marks — and whatever ends up happening after her grueling deposition — we really only want Amber to be healthy, happy, and safe. Here’s hoping.

Johnny Depp’s Lawyers Claim Amber Heard Was Not Only Late For Her Deposition, But Threw A Temper Tantrum To Refuse To Submit For Questioning

More back and forth between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.

In what’s officially the messiest divorce in a very long time, the 53-year-old actor’s legal team is coming to their client’s defense after Amber’s rep denied reports saying the actress refused to be questioned after showing up hella late at her deposition on Saturday.

New legal docs filed by Johnny’s lawyer Laura Wasser argue not only was the Danish Girl star nearly two hours late, but she refused to go under oath during her nine hours at the court house.

TMZ reports the actress never even walked in the deposition room and instead stayed in an adjoining office from her arrival of 11:50 a.m. to when she left at 9 p.m.

Wasser even claims the 30-year-old threw a fit — “crying, yelling, and screaming in defiance” — when asked to submit herself for questioning at 2 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m.

The documents also say Heard didn’t turn over the paperwork requested of her from Depp’s team — and because of her refusal to cooperate, Wasser is asking for either Amber to be prohibited from testifying during the trial next week, or for the domestic violence case to be dismissed altogether.

Oy vey.

Amber Heard Showed Up REALLY Late For Court-Ordered Deposition In Divorce From Johnny Depp!

That was a close call… but she’s there!

Amber Heard would have been in violation of a court order had she not shown up for today’s deposition in her ongoing divorce and domestic violence case against ex Johnny Depp — but after nearly two hours of waiting, she showed up!

The actress would have been in contempt had she not arrived to be deposed by Depp’s lawyers, and that could have landed her in jail, but apparently after a 90-minute delay with tensions rising, common sense (thankfully) got the better of her, and she arrived.

TMZ is reporting that the deposition was supposed to start at 10:00 a.m. local time in El Lay, but even Amber’s lawyer Samantha Spector didn’t show up until 10:15. By contrast, Blair Berk — Depp’s lawyer — was ready and waiting by 9:40 a.m.

Amber, who has put off this deposition several times, showed up around 11:30 and went in through a private entrance so she wouldn’t be filmed by the paparazzi.

Allegedly, Heard and Depp’s attorneys were getting close to a settlement late last night, before talks fizzled out, and from there, this deposition was all set to go on.

So right now, as we speak, Amber is being deposed by Johnny’s high-priced law firm… and the questioning about domestic violence, the money, and more, could last all day.

Johnny Depp’s Lawyers Set A Date For Amber Heard’s Deposition

It looks like Amber Heard‘s going to have to testify under oath pretty soon.

On Tuesday, Johnny Depp‘s legal team held an emergency hearing, where they convinced a judge to set a date to depose the actor’s ex.

According to court papers, the judge ruled that the blonde will face questions from her estranged husband’s attorneys on August 6, regarding her request for a permanent restraining order from her former flame.

The 30-year-old wanted the legal protection after filing for divorce from the A-lister, and alleging that he had physically abused her throughout their time together.

The 53-year-old’s team had tried to depose the actress last month, but a judge denied the request because his laywers didn’t give Miz Heard enough notice.

Plus, their June hearing ended up being postponed.

We’re curious to see how the deposition goes during this next stage in their messy split.

Amber Heard’s Neighbor Describes Breaking Up An Alleged Altercation Between Her And Johnny Depp In A New Deposition

Now the stories are starting to come full circle.

As we reported earlier this week, the LAPD was called to an alleged altercation between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, but at the time, they did not seek to press charges after being unable to find evidence of domestic abuse.

Well, now, one of the people there — Amber’s neighbor and friend of thirteen years, Raquel Rose Pennington — has given a deposition where she describes that day’s events in detail, and it is very scary.

Pennington claims that on May 21, she received a text from Heard asking her to come over to the woman’s condo. When Pennington got there, she heard the couple arguing, and she entered the condo to try to stop it.

Raquel continues:

“When I opened the door, I saw Amber by the couch, covering her head with her arms and hands, as Johnny was loudly screaming at her.”

When Pennington ran to stop it in Amber’s defense, she also claims that Johnny went off the deep end and started getting crazy:

“I ran over and stood in between Johnny and Amber, begging Johnny to stop yelling at her. I put my hands out in a defensive manner motioning him to stop. Johnny slapped my hands away and screamed foul obscenities at me.”

Whoa.

From there, Pennington alleges that Depp picked up a bottle of wine and began swinging it ‘like a baseball bat’ around the condo — and in the process, he smashed everything he could.

It was then that Raquel took Amber back to her place and called the police.

Scary stuff…
