Taylor Swift Gets Emotional About Sexual Assault Victims Being Believed

  • Taylor Swift

We've got her emotional statement to fans.

The 28-year-old singer launched a lawsuit against the former radio DJ in August 2017, alleging that she'd been groped by him at an event, and Swift has thanked her fans for helping her through a "really, really horrible" time in her life.

Taylor Swift had an impassioned message for victims of sexual assault during her latest concert, marking the anniversary of when a court ruled in her favor during a civil sexual assault trial.

Swift continued, "I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this".

"A year ago I was not playing in a stadium in Tampa".

She referenced her "sexual assault case" and that the jury "sided in my favor and said they believed me". So, thank you for everything.

Turkey doubles tariffs on some USA imports; Turkish lira rallies
Erdogan also renewed a call for Turks to convert their dollars into the Turkish lira, to help strengthen the currency . The Turkish vice president says it's a response to Washington's "deliberate attacks" on the country's economy.

A year after Taylor Swift's groping trial, the singer is still speaking out.

"So I just wanted to say we have so much further to go, and I'm so grateful to you guys for being there for me for what was really a disgusting part of my life", the singer said. "And you've seen me go through ups and downs in my life so thank you for everything" she told the audience then broke down in tears.

However, what Tay didn't realise was fans had secretly organised a seriously heartwarming tribute to the "Look What You Made Me Do" singer, by holding up one dollar notes- the amount she asked to be awarded by the perpetrator, as a symbol of winning the case on behalf of women and sexual assault survivors. "I mean I know when I meet you guys at meet-and-greets and after the shows, you guys tell me about the hard times that you've gone through in your lives, and I really appreciate you trusting me with that information".

'I just wanted to say we have so much further to go, and I'm so grateful to you guys for being there for me for what was really a awful part of my life, ' she said.

"Sorry, I just haven't really talked about it". Before the show fans were given yellow $1 bills with Taylor's face on the front, symbolic of the $1 won when she countersued former Denver DJ David Mueller, who sued Taylor for $3 million after he was sacked from his job when Taylor claimed her groped her in 2013.
