E! News claims Taylor Swift’s former bodyguard Greg Dent testified in her butt groping trial on Friday. He claims David Mueller inappropriately touched her. “His hand went under her skirt. I did not see his hand touch her physically; I saw his hand under her skirt. She reacted, pushed her skirt down and moved over closer to [Mueller’s girlfriend]. So in my opinion, I knew he touched her.”
The Palm Beach Post claims Judge William Ramirez tossed David’s lawsuit because he failed to prove that Taylor got him fired after his alleged groping incident.
A source tells Hollywoodlife.com: “She is relieved, but their is still so much more to go through and she is putting the focus she needs to put on it based on what her lawyers are saying to her. It is just one monkey of many that is off her back, but she realizes she has a lot more to deal with and will handle it all as it comes. She honestly believes she is in the right and telling the truth and only hopes that everyone sees what she honestly believes happened. There is absolutely no celebrating happening at all. She is glad this portion of the suit is over, but there is plenty more to deal with. There is no celebration to be had or will happen at anytime. This is not a party, this is not fun. Its all business, celebrating is not an option”

Stereogum claims Dave Matthews has released a statement in regards to the violent rally that took place in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia.
It read: ”We are all disgusted by the acts of racist, hate-filled terrorism in our hometown this weekend. Like so many our hearts are broken. Our thoughts go out to the families and victims of these unbelievable acts. This is not the Charlottesville we know and love. This town has grown from its sometimes great but often difficult history and is marching toward an inclusive future. This murderous act and those who incited it are not what we aspire to be. We will work tirelessly, hand-in-hand with our community to help one another so we can all heal from this sickening display of horror. Hate speech disguised as free speech is cowardly and shameful. Such speech gives permission to the murderous crimes we witnessed today. There is nothing pure, acceptable, or philosophical about Nazism, or racism masked as heritage. The multicultural tapestry that is America must come together, acknowledge our very difficult but remarkable history. We must move away from the racist and ignorant elements of our past toward an inclusive, kinder, more intelligent future.”
