As reported by The Daily Mail, the "American Idol" judge faces a court battle with the family of Carl Westcott, a dying veteran who sold his home to Perry in 2020 for $15 million.

The 84-year-old veteran reportedly claimed that he was under the influence of painkillers when he signed the deal and attempted to rescind the contract. However, a court upheld the sale, declaring Perry the legal owner of the estate.

In addition to the upheld contract, Perry seeks to reduce the purchase price by $6 million, arguing that Westcott owes her for repairs and lost rental income. She must now present her case in person at an upcoming damages trial, facing Westcott's family, who argue that the dispute has marred their patriarch's final days.
