Why would she skip such an important event?
August 30, 2016

Did you stop and ask yourself why Taylor Swift didn’t bother to make an appearance at the 2016 MTV VMAs? If you think it’s because she wasn’t nominated for any awards, think again!

Sure, it is a very important event, but the world-famous pop star chose to spend her Sunday in Nashville to perform her civic duty. She was indeed being considered for jury duty.

However, it turns out that Swift was to be dismissed from a case which involved aggravated rape, kidnapping and domestic violence because of her ongoing sexual assault case. In June 2013, the singer sued radio host David Mueller who she claims “groped” her.

"Taylor Swift was part of the panel of prospective jurors on a case with charges of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated rape and aggravated domestic assault. Therefore, the judge excused Ms. Swift because of her pending sexual assault case against Mr. Mueller" revealed a courthouse witness.
