A former Colorado radio DJ has filed a lawsuit against Taylor Swift after he was fired from his job for allegedly groping the singer at a meet-and-greet.

David Mueller attended the meet-and-greet with his girlfriend in 2013 where the couple took a picture with Swift.

According to the suit, Mueller claims another KYGO employee grabbed the singer. But Swift's spokesperson told CNN that KYGO made the independent decision to fire Mueller after receiving evidence of the incident. 

Mueller's lawsuit looks to recuperate the income he lost when he was fired. Swift is also being sued by a NYC car chauffeur company and clothing brand Lucky 13.
