Katy Perry Successfully Completes Purchase of $15 Million Mansion Despite Seller’s Attempt to Back Out

After a lengthy legal battle, singer Katy Perry has acquired a luxurious $15 million mansion. Property records confirm that Perry officially became the owner of the property on Friday, May 17, through her LLC named DDoveB, in honor of her daughter, Daisy Dove Bloom.

Attempted Withdrawal and Legal Resolution

In July 2020, Perry purchased the two-acre estate and eight-bedroom house from the previous owner, Westcott, 85. Shortly after, Westcott attempted to withdraw from the agreement, citing mental incapacitation due to Huntington’s disease and medication for pain after back surgery.

In December 2023, a judge ruled in favor of Perry, stating that Westcott failed to provide convincing evidence of lacking capacity for the real estate contract. Perry’s attorney, Eric Rowen, commented that the evidence clearly demonstrated Westcott’s breach of contract due to a change of heart.

Chart Westcott, the previous owner’s son, expressed dissatisfaction, accusing Perry of Hollywood hypocrisy and heartlessly pursuing damages that would affect his father’s grandchildren.

Perry’s new residence is near Oprah Winfrey’s $100 million estate, Promised Land, and close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s $14.65 million home, according to The Times.Perry has paid $9 million towards the property, and the upcoming trial phase will determine the remaining owed to Westcott. Perry also seeks damages for lost rental value, repair delays due to water damage, and a fallen tree. The damages could exceed $6 million, as reported by The Journal.

Previous Legal Dispute Over a Convent

In 2015, Perry faced a legal battle with two elderly Roman Catholic nuns over the sale of a former convent. Perry purchased the building from Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez, previously sued by The Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.The nuns claimed they had already sold the property weeks prior and argued against Gomez’s right to sell. The Archdiocese of Los Angeles sued to block their deal, asserting the nuns had exceeded their authority.
