Lawyers for singer Taylor Swift and a Colorado radio personality begin jury selection on Monday afternoon in dueling lawsuits over whether the former disc jockey groped her during a 2013 photo shoot.

Swift alleged that Mueller, 55, slipped his hand under her dress and grabbed her bare bottom as they posed together during a meet-and-greet session before her June 2, 2013, concert in Denver. Swift says radio promotions director Frank Bell spoke with KYGO about the incident with the station conducting its own investigation which lead to his firing.

"KYGO fired Mueller for violating the morality clause of his contract after it independently determined that he had lied about the incident, changed his story, and inappropriately touched Ms".

According to pre-trial legal documents obtained by CNN, Mueller launched a law suit in 2015 claiming Swift and her co-defendents (including her mother), falsely accused him of improperly touching the star, and is now seeking £2.3 million in damages.

Mueller says he was sacked after Bell told KYGO general manager Bob Call that Swift and her parents were "looking for specific action" to be taken by the station. Mueller attended the show with his then girlfriend Shannon Melcher who also worked at KYGO. Mueller was backstage with his girlfriend when they met with Swift, then 23, in a curtained enclosure.

The trial is being held in U.S. District Court because the Mueller and Swift live in separate states and the matter involves a claim for damages higher than $75,000.

"It was not an accident, it was completely intentional, and I have never been so sure of anything in my life", Swift, 27, said in describing the incident during a deposition.

He also says the security guard did not react to anything during the backstage meeting and that as many as 20 other people took photographs with Swift after Mueller left.
