DJ Claims Taylor Swift 'Ruined' His Life One Year After Singer Won Groping Lawsuit

Nearly one year after he was found guilty of assault and battery for grabbing Taylor Swift's bare butt, David Mueller exclusively told that the singer ruined his life.

On Tuesday, the radio host vehemently denied to Swift's claims that he latched on to her "bare a** cheek" in 2013 at a meet and greet in Denver, Colorado. Mueller also shared what he would say to the "Delicate" singer if given the chance.

"How can you live with yourself? You ruined my life," Mueller said. "I was not ready for the photograph. I admit it was awkward but I never grabbed her. It's not even close to what happened."

The five-day trial between Swift and Mueller garnered national attention in August 2017. As a result, the disgraced DJ compared his post-trial life to being locked up behind bars.

"Now I'm afraid to even talk to women. I feel like I'm in a prison," Mueller continued. "I'm not myself anymore. I don't even go near women."

In January 2018, Mueller landed a new radio gig in Mississippi. He said he still receives jokes about the highly-publicized trial, which he believes is undeserved.

"It make me upset. I was always the gentleman. I would always say, 'Hey, watch your language, there's a lady here,' and then I get accused of this," Mueller told

The disgraced DJ said that he knew he was going to lose in court but does not regret suing Joe Alwyn's girlfriend in the first place.

"I know that if I didn't do it I would have never been able to live with myself," the radio host added. "At least now that my life is totally screwed up I'm proud of myself."

In May, Swift kicked off her Reputation Stadium World Tour. Mueller said that while his career has significantly suffered, he doesn't wish Swift harm.

"I don't want anything bad to happen to her, I really don't," he said.

Mueller insisted that he's "just a regular guy." Continuing his career in radio is the one thing that still makes him happy, he said.

"I don't have a lot of listeners but if I can keep doing radio then I'll consider myself a lucky guy," he said.
