Katy Perry has made her first public appearance since her real estate trial against dying Army veteran, Carl Wescott, began. The singer was spotted arriving at a recording studio in Los Angeles, retrieving items from the trunk of her car. Perry was seen carrying a brown Hermès Birkin bag, known for its high price tag, and was accompanied by her teacup poodle, Nugget.
The trial revolves around a $14.2 million mansion in Montecito that Perry and her fiancé, Orlando Bloom, purchased through their business manager in 2020. Wescott, the previous owner of the property, claims that he signed the contract while under the influence of painkillers for back surgery, making the deal voidable. Due to his deteriorating health from Huntington’s disease, Wescott is unable to attend the trial in person.
Wescott’s daughter-in-law, Kameron Westcott, has spoken out about the case on social media, asserting that her father-in-law was not in the right state of mind to sign the documents. She emphasizes the need to protect and be kind to our elders, even if they appear to be lucid.
Perry’s involvement in legal battles with senior citizens is not new. In 2018, she won a $15 million trial against Catholic nuns over the sale of their convent. The case was marred by controversy, as one of the nuns collapsed and died during a court appearance.
In other news, Perry has recently been announced as the voice of dressmaker Ms. Leopard in a three-part Peppa Pig Wedding Party Special by Hasbro. The special is set to premiere next spring.
Despite the ongoing trial, Perry is scheduled to resume her Play residency at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas on October 4. The residency has been a massive success, grossing $46 million so far.
As the trial continues, Perry’s fans, as well as the public, are hoping for a fair and just resolution. The case serves as a reminder of the importance of protecting vulnerable individuals and treating our elders with kindness and respect.
