Pop superstar Taylor Swift is expected in court in Denver this week for a trial pitting her against a DJ accused of groping her at a gig.

Jury selection was due to commence on Monday afternoon and Swift, 27, could take the stand to give details of the alleged assault during a meet and greet four years ago. 

Swift says radio DJ David Mueller grabbed her by the buttock during a visit backstage at the Pepsi Center in Denver on June 2013 before a concert. 

Mueller was sacked two days after the allegations by his local employer, radio station KYGO. 

He launched a lawsuit against Swift in September 2015, alleging that she should have called the police rather than her managers and that she had caused him to lose his job and salary.

Mueller accuses Swift's aides of calling the radio station to demand his firing the day after the encounter, according to court documents.

Mueller said in the lawsuit he was aware of an incident but said it was one of his friends who had touched her inappropriately and then bragged about it.

Swift has counter-sued for sexual assault, saying she was "forced to start a one hour concert before 13,000 fans while still in distress after being so inappropriately touched.”  

A photo published by the TMZ celebrity news website showing Swift posing between Mueller and his girlfriend is expected to be among the key pieces of evidence. 

In the image, the DJ's hand is level with the pop-star's backside but it s not clear if it is touching.

Swift testified at a deposition that she is certain that Mueller intentionally grabbed her.

Mueller denies inappropriately touching Swift on her buttocks and is suing the singer-songwriter for $3 million(R39.69 million) while Swift is seeking $1 and a ruling that holds him responsible.

The "Shake It off" and "Bad Blood" singer argues that a verdict in her favour will serve as an example for other women who might fear coming forward in similar circumstances. 

Opening statements are expected on Tuesday.
