Taylor Swift has wrapped up her testimony in a civil trial over whether a former radio DJ groped her before a 2013 concert.

Swift testified in the trial that the former radio show host, David Mueller, "grabbed my ass underneath my skirt" when the two posed for a photo together before her 2013 performance in Denver.

David Mueller sued Swift and others on her team, claiming they cost him his job and is seeking up to $3 million in damages.

Swift countersued, alleging sexual assault, and is asking for a symbolic $1 judgment.

Swift testified that after she was grabbed she "got as far away from him as I possibly could”.

Swift said she didn't stop the meet-and-greets after Mueller left because she didn't want to disappoint a few dozen people who'd been waiting in line.

She testified she first mentioned the incident about 15 minutes later to her photographer Stephanie Simbeck.

The pop star was cordial, but direct and sometimes testy while being questioned today by a lawyer representing Mueller in federal court in Denver.

When questioned about her reaction when she learned that he had been fired over the allegations, Swift replied that she was not going to allow the lawyer or Mueller make her feel like it was her fault.

Swift repeatedly said no one else could have groped her.

Her testimony lasted about an hour.
