Grope DJ claims he could ‘pass a polygraph’ against Taylor Swift

The ex-Denver radio DJ in Taylor Swift’s groping trial insisted Tuesday he could “pass a polygraph” to prove he never touched the “Bad Blood” singer.

David Mueller spoke out about why he sued Swift for up to $3 million one day after a civil jury ruled that he grabbed the pop star’s behind during a meet-and-greet in 2013.

“What I’m saying is I didn’t do what they said,” Mueller said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I never grabbed her. I never had my hand under my skirt and I can pass a polygraph.”

Mueller sued Swift, her mother Andrea and radio liaison Frank Bell, claiming they got him fired from his $150,000-a-year job at KYGO over the fondling allegations. Swift countersued for assault and battery.

“I’ve been trying to clear my name for four years,” Mueller said about why he took Swift to court. “Civil court is the only option I had. This is the only way that I could be heard.”

Mueller claimed he “wasn’t ready” for the photo used as evidence in the trial that shows him and his then-girlfriend Shannon Melcher smiling and posing next to the songstress.

“I wasn’t invited to be in the photo,” he said. “I just moved into the shot the best I could.”

But Swift told jurors at the Denver federal court trial that she was certain he grabbed her ass.

“He had a handful of my ass. It happened to me. I know it was him,” Swift testified. “I didn’t need a picture. I could have picked him out of a line of a thousand.”

Mueller also denied allegations that he demanded money from Swift in the two years before filing his suit.

“I asked for something in writing which stated that there was a misunderstanding,” Mueller said. “And I can take that to possibly convince someone at a radio station to hire me.”

Jurors took less than five hours Monday to find that Mueller groped Swift at the pre-concert event and award the “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer a symbolic $1.

Mueller suffered a setback in his case last week, when a judge tossed the portion of his suit against Swift, saying there was no evidence she was directly involved in getting him fired.
