The trial of a lawsuit between Swift and David Mueller, a former radio host she accuses of groping her, begins Monday, Aug. 7, 2017, in U.S. District Court in Denver.
Her lawyers say she will donate it to charitable organisations who help women who have been sexually assaulted.
Mueller has sued Swift, claiming he is being falsely accused and that he was sacked over her allegation.
Swift is countersuing Mueller, claiming sexual assault.
Mueller also testified that one of his station bosses, Hershel Coomer, told him that he had met Swift earlier before the show and that "he told me that he had his hands on her butt".
Swift was moved to tears during the opening statements.
Taylor Swift shot daggers at a former deejay accused of groping her as he spent a second day on the stand struggling to shake off questions from her pit bull lawyer.
As the pop star's lawyers tried to take the higher ground in the he said, she said case, Mueller's legal team tried to paint their client as someone who just wants to clear his name and recover his lost earnings.
The Denver trial follows a hard 12 months for the singer after a much-ridiculed 2016 summer fling with British actor Tom Hiddleston. Swift has asserted that her representatives informed KYGO management about the incident but that she never demanded Mueller be fired.
Mueller's suit didn't seek a specific monetary amount but an expert retained by the ex-radio host determined that almost $3 million was a fair compensation for damages.

The case is another variation on the "he said-she said" nature of high-profile sexual assault allegations. All are expected to testify during the trial.
After losing his position, Mueller sued swift, saying it was a "humiliating thing to be accused of something that despicable", and that if anything, he had accidentally touched her "ribcage or ribs".
