The Real Reason Taylor Swift Wasn’t At The VMAs

Not even stars are above the law

While fans were super excited to get a glimpse of Taylor Swift at yesterday’s MTV VMA Awards in New York City, they were left disappointed when she was a no-show.

While a source told People, “Taylor was never scheduled to attend the VMAs,” many speculated whether it was due to her feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, or to avoid ex beau Calvin Harris.

Well it seems there was another reason altogether.

The 26-year-old was actually called up for jury duty in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tay was called as a prospective juror in an aggravated rape/kidnapping trial however she was dismissed over possible bias due to a pending civil case of her own that involves sexual assault.

The case she refers to involves former Denver radio DJ David Mueller who claims he was fired from his job over an incident involving Taylor Swift backstage at one of her concerts.

Her security guards reportedly threw him out for touching her inappropriately but he claims it never happened.
