The singer-composer, who has 102 million Instagram and 85 million Twitter followers has said she wants this case to serve as an example to all women "who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts."

Andrea Swift said 'I do not want this incident to define her life.'

"I was very upset when my daughter told me she was sexually assaulted, I felt like I wanted to vomit," Andrea Swift said when she was asked to recall her reaction after she knew that her daughter had been groped before her concert in Denver. When she was asked if she has sought for any witnesses regarding the groping incident, Andrea said she has no reason not to believe her daughter. "Mueller inappropriately touched my daughter, right there, that guy," as she pointed her finger to Mueller who was seated less than twenty feet away.

The eight-member U.S. District Court jury is now weighing both claims in a single trial.
