According to him, the I Kissed a Girl singer "has put herself in a box by claiming that she lost years of rental income and is owed damages, which is counter to her sworn statements about wanting to live in the house."

Westcott's son also referenced Perry's past property battles.

Westcott's daughter-in-law, Real Housewives of Dallas star Kameron Westcott, addressed the judge's ruling this afternoon. She revealed that "while he was unable to fight for himself, we proudly fought for Carl and will continue to fight for the rights of those with Huntingtons, Alzheimer’s, and all diseases that impair cognitive function against those who try to take advantage of those battling these heartbreaking life impairments."

Kameron added, "I know the truth and those who fight for good amongst greed will always prevail. While our hearts break for Carl in his current health condition and now with the results of the trial, let this be a reminder and encouragement to all of us to be the differences and the kindness we need in this world, even when we’re up against obstacles that seem unjust and unethical."

Once the pain medications wore off, the aging businessman 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."
