Nashville — A Nashville judge dismissed pop star Taylor Swift as a potential juror in an aggravated rape and kidnapping case on Monday, Davidson County District Attorney General's Office spokesperson Ken Whitehouse said.

"She asked to be left off out of concern for an upcoming trial in Denver where she was — she used the term 'groped' — by a fan at a meet-and-greet," Whitehouse said.

Swift told the judge she would be more than willing to serve on a jury in any other type of case, he said.

In the Denver case, Swift filed a counterclaim last year after a former radio host sued her.

David Mueller claimed he lost his job after a member of Swift's security team falsely accused him of grabbing the singer's buttocks backstage during a 2013 photo session. Muller claimed the person who assaulted Swift was actually one of his superiors.

Swift's counterclaim states, "Ms. Swift knows exactly who committed the assault."

Before Swift was dismissed from the jury pool on Monday, she took time to chat and take selfies with other potential jurors.
