Carl's family called Katy and her legal team "soulless."

Chart Westcott addressed the ongoing legal battle, revealing he is ready to defend his father's honor with "every force of strength in my body," regardless of how long the process takes.

As this outlet reported, Carl — who has Huntington's disease, which affects the brain like Alzheimer's or dementia — accused the pop star and her fiancé Orlando Bloom of stealing his Santa Barbara home, with their business agent allegedly convincing him to sell the property in 2020 while he was on painkillers and recovering from a six-hour back surgery.

Once the pain medications wore off, Carl changed his mind. When he approached Perry and Bloom's real estate agent about the mistake, he received a letter from their attorney revealing they were "not willing to walk away" and he was "obligated to complete the sale."

Carl, in turn, sued Perry and Bloom's business agent, dragging the famous pair and his family into a full-on courtroom war.

During a phone interview, Chart told RadarOnline.com that the best-case scenario would be legal victory, but the family is prepared for a possible appeal if that happens.

“We're not going to stop," he revealed on Wednesday. “We will be there. We’ll show up.”

He said the high-profile battle has brought the family closer because they've "rallied together against evil." Chart emphasized that they didn't choose this; "Katy did."

"This is a huge emotional strain," Chart said, adding the Fireworks singer is "stealing hours of life from us — all because of a house."

“What’s the point?” he asked. "Anyone with morals wouldn't do this."

Carl's son believes this is all about Perry's “ego” and “selfishness," with his sister-in-law, Real Housewives of Dallas star Kameron Westcott, telling us this is the home the patriarch wanted to spend his last days in.

The mansion trial started earlier this month, and Perry has been ordered to testify after claiming Carl owes her $2.6 million related to the income she said she could have made if she had been able to rent out the bedridden businessman's home.

Chart isn't happy with the accusations hurled against his father or family, including that they faked Carl's battle with Huntington's disease, which he was diagnosed with in 2015.

We should point out that medical experts also testified that Carl was incapacitated and suffering from early Alzheimer/dementia symptoms brought on by the debilitating illness.

"They will sink to any low" to cave to Perry's demands, Chart told RadarOnline.com about the singer's legal team. "They are soleless. All they want to do is fulfill Katy's selfish desires."

The courtroom feud has been paused until November 3 due to scheduling conflicts, including Perry's Las Vegas residency and her job as an American Idol judge.
