Now that Taylor Swift has won her trial, she has a message for her supporters — one of pure gratitude.

First the Shake It Off singer takes a moment to thank everyone who helped her, writing:

"I want to thank Judge William J. Martinez and the jury for their careful consideration, my attorneys Doug Baldridge, Danielle Foley, Jay Schaudies and Katie Wright for fighting for me and anyone who feels silenced by a sexual assault, and especially anyone who offered their support through this four-year ordeal and two year long trial process."

But Taylor didn't stop by making it about herself. She made a point of mentioning all the assault victims who don't have a voice — and what she would be doing to help change that:

ICYMI, the radio personality sued Swift for slander and the Blank Space singer responded with a sexual assault and battery countersuit. While the radio professional maintained his innocence throughout the trial, the pop star testified under oath that David "grabbed [her] bare ass."

On Friday, Judge Martinez threw out Mueller's lawsuit against Taylor — while her mom Andrea and radio promotions director, Frank Bell, remained at risk AKA legal limbo. Well, they're also out of the woods now as the jury found they did not intentionally interfere with Mueller's employment contract.

What victory!!!

Taylor Swift's trial is (almost) over!

The Shake It Off singer has spent the week in court after radio DJ David Mueller sued her, her mother, Andrea Swift, and her radio promotions director, Frank Bell, for up to $3 million for allegedly ruining his career.

In turn, she countersued him for sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013.

Now Mueller's case against Tay is already over — the judge has dismissed the claim, saying Mueller had not proved in any way that Taylor personally did anything to get him fired. That being said, Mueller's case will go forward with Taylor's mother and Bell as defendants.

Taylor's countersuit, for just a symbolic $1, will continue next week, with a verdict expected as early as Monday.

We WILL be seeing you all next week!

As you surely know, Taylor Swift has been going head to head against a Denver based DJ, named David Mueller, in court. In case you forgot, the A-lister has accused Mueller of sexually assaulting her as he allegedly "grabbed her ass" during a meet and greet back in 2013.

The feud between Mueller and Swift intensified when the disgraced DJ sued Swift for slander and the Blank Space singer responded with a sexual assault and battery countersuit. While the radio professional maintained his innocence throughout the course of the trial, the pop star testified under oath that David "grabbed [her] bare ass."

Both Swift and Mueller's legal teams made their cases to the jury this week. In a twist on Friday, Taylor's team asked Judge Martinez to dismiss the case because they never directed Mueller's employer to fire him.

After about twenty minutes of deliberation, the judge was unable to come to a conclusion as to whether Taylor should be released from the case and the jury was dismissed — court will resume with the jury on Monday morning.

However, a decision is expected sometime today from the judge on whether or not Taylor will be dismissed from the lawsuit against her:

UPDATE 3:40 P.M. EST: Taylor's attorney has requested that the judge dismiss the case, arguing Tay had nothing to do with KYGO's decision to fire Mueller.

The lawyer said:

"Mr. Mueller's beef is with KYGO and not with my client. KYGO did him wrong and he didn't sue KYGO."

According to reporter Claudia Rosenbaum, the judge is looking into a phone call made by Swift's radio liaison Frank Bell to KYGO executive Robert Call.

We'll keep you posted.


Week one of Taylor Swift's trial against radio host David Mueller is almost in the books.

On Friday, the 27-year-old singer's sexual assault lawsuit against the Denver DJ (who is denying all accusations and suing Tay for slander) continued with more testimonies from both sides of the aisle.

First to take the stand was Swift's bodyguard Gregory Dent, who allegedly witnessed the incident first hand back in 2013.

According to BuzzFeed News, Dent told the court he "knows" he saw Mueller put his hand under Taylor's skirt before taking the now-infamous photo. He went on to add:
