As this outlet reported, Perry was dragged into the legal battle over the 2020 sale of 1-800-Flower founder Carl Westcott's Santa Barbara mansion, purchased by the singer and her Lord of The Rings fiancé, Orlando Bloom. He claimed he was tricked into selling his property by Perry and Bloom's business agent, Bernie Gudvi, while on painkillers and recovering from a six-hour back surgery.

After the Firework hitmaker came for $2.6 million in damages, sources close to Westcott's loved ones accused her of having "personal disgust" for the elderly and those who served the county — accusations that Perry's attorney, Jay Cooper, won't stand for.

Regarding the insider's accusation that they claimed was "exemplified by the $225M sale of her catalog" and her already existing "vast financial resources," Cooper said that "the sole reason Katy Perry is pursuing litigation is that she entered into a written contract with Mr. Westcott, who was perfectly competent at the time, for a home that she wishes to live in with her family."

However, as pointed out, Perry accused Westcott of owing her $2.6 million related to the income she said she could have made if she had rented out the bedridden businessman's home after buying it.
