People are finally fed up with her “Hot n Cold” attitude.
Katy Perry has become the inspiration for a brand new piece of housing legislation called the “Katy PERRY Act,” which would mitigate “the risks of elder financial abuse, especially as it relates to property and real estate sales and transfers.”
“The Act establishes a 72-hour cool-down period during which either party involved in a contract for conveyance of a personal residence, in which one party is over the age of 75, can rescind the agreement without penalty,” reads the bill’s website.
While Perry, 38, was not mentioned directly anywhere else on the site, the piece of legislature has since gained popularity as the singer has made headlines amid her ongoing court battle with Carl Westcott over a California mansion.
According to the Protecting Elder Realty for Retirement Years (PERRY) Act, elder fraud or financial elder abuse “is a rampant issue in the United States” adding that “the prevalence of online fraud targeting seniors increased by 400% in recent years.”
The bill, which has yet to be fully adopted into law, has received bipartisan support from some US officials.
The Post reached out to Perry and Bloom for comment.
Several X (formerly Twitter) users have taken to poking fun at the “Teenage Dream” vocalist.
“Queen of pop and legislation,” one X user wrote.
“Imagine getting an elder abuse bill named after you,” chided a second person.
“Not them literally calling Katy Perry the terror of elderly people,” roared a third commenter.
Army vet Carl Westcott, 83, claimed that Perry and her fiancé Orlando Bloom made him sell the house when he “lacked the mental capacity to understand the nature and probable consequences of the contract” due to a medical procedure.
According to court documents obtained by The Post, Wescott purchased the home that May 29 with the intent to live in there “for the rest of his life.”
Westcott claimed that due to his age, poor health from Huntington’s disease (a deadly brain disorder), and “a major six-hour surgery less than a week before the proposed contract,” it had “seriously impaired [his] mental faculties to the point he was of unsound mind and not competent to give his free, voluntary, or intelligent consent to the contract.”
The Los Angeles County Superior Court later agreed with Wescott claiming that “the multiple opiate medications, which were a synthetic form of morphine, disoriented and intoxicated [Westcott].”
According to the court, the mix of drugs deprived ” him of reason and understanding with respect to the terms and consequences of the contract, and seriously impaired [Westcott’s] mental faculties to the point he was of unsound mind and not competent to give his free, voluntary, or intelligent consent to the contract.”
The court later added that the contract he had agreed on with both Perry and Bloom was to be “void or voidable.”
Perry’s recent legal trouble also bears a striking resemblance to when she tried to evict several aging nuns from a property she purchased.
In 2015, the vocalist sued the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz after they failed to move out of the medieval Spanish-Gothic-Tudor estate that was sold to Perry, who ultimately won the case in 2016.
The feud ended in 2018, when Sister Catherine Rose Holzman — who was among the nuns battling Perry and the archdiocese — died in court.
