Katy Perry wins court case over $15 million California home

CELEBRITIES

Katy Perry won a legal battle over a mansion in Montecito, California.

Katy Perry won the right to buy a $15 million mansion previously owned by a disabled veteran, Carl Westcott.

Westcott sold Perry the home in July 2020 but then tried to rescind the deal, citing his mental incapacity.

Westcott, who served in the US Army as a 101st Airborne service member, had purchased it on May 29, 2020.

The juryless proceedings began on Sept 28 and on Nov 8, the decision was ruled in her favor.

Judge Joseph Lipner made a tentative ruling in LA Superior Court that Westcott sold the property with sound mind.

The estate spans over 9,100 square feet and holds eight bedrooms.

The second phase is scheduled for February 2024, when Perry will testify about her alleged losses.

The 39-year-old singer has a net worth of $340 million.
