Pictures of Taylor Swift allegedly being groped are sealed

PICTURES of Taylor Swift allegedly being groped by a DJ have been sealed by the court.

The 26-year-old singer has an ongoing lawsuit against DJ David Mueller, who she accused of grabbing her bum when they met backstage at her concert in Colorado last year, and she requested that pictures submitted as evidence are not made public as they could "complicate jury selection".

According to TMZ, Taylor's lawyers asked that the "extremely personal and sensitive" pictures be sealed and their request was granted.

The judge said: "The widespread dissemination of this image might significantly complicate jury selection."

Taylor said that any money made from the lawsuit will be "dedicated to protecting women from similar acts of sexual assault and personal disregard".

Last year Mueller - who denies the claims of groping - filed a lawsuit against Taylor, claiming he was fired from a country radio station after being kicked out of a Taylor concert when her security team made the allegations against him.

He said he and his girlfriend were invited backstage to meet Taylor and took a picture with the 'Wildest Dreams' hitmaker, but claims he later bumped into a colleague backstage, who boasted about getting a picture with the singer and grabbed her bum.

In the lawsuit, David claims at some point in the evening a member of Taylor's security team confronted him and kicked him out of the arena for the incident.

Taylor later launched a counter-claim, saying she was "surprised, upset, offended, and alarmed" by the alleged assault.
