Taylor Swift will have to face her alleged groper for a deposition after a Colorado judge denied her request to give evidence behind closed doors.

The Bad Blood hitmaker is currently fighting a slander lawsuit from former radio host David Mueller, who claims he lost his job at Denver, Colorado’s KYGO station after Taylor falsely accused him of touching her butt backstage during a meet-and-greet at a 2013 concert in the city.

The 26-year-old singer countersued for sexual assault and battery in October, insisting she is telling the truth, and asked for a jury trial to resolve the matter.

On Thursday, her lawyers filed a motion to allow Swift to sit for questioning about the alleged incident without Mueller present and without being filmed, but their requests were both dismissed, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Instead, the judge ruled the footage will remain sealed from public viewing unless the case goes to trial. The taped deposition will be looked after by Swift’s business manager, Jesse Schaudies, and also be protected by a court order, limiting the details attorneys on both sides can reveal about the case.

Mueller, who originally sued the star for loss of wages, has always maintained Swift was groped by another worker at the station.
