Dr. Daniel Franc attended the trial at the request of Perry and Bloom’s business manager, Bernie Gudvi. The neurologist was called to testify whether the 84-year-old businessman had been incapable of reason in July 2020, when the couple bought their Montecito mansion for $15 million.
The doctor was giving his diagnosis when the unknown woman burst into the courtroom, according to PEOPLE. Her first attempt to disrupt the court process was refuted by a court clerk, who begged her to calm down and leave.
The woman’s interruption visibly shocked Westcott’s attorney, Andrew Thomas, who immediately requested that officers be called to the courtroom.

Fortunately, the officers arrived in time to remove her before the situation worsened. The woman’s presence baffled those present, wondering if she had anything to do with the property dispute case.
However, the judge stopped these speculations by revealing that the lady’s problem was with him. According to the legal referee, the unnamed woman was upset with an unrelated case he had presided over.
A woman intervenes in her father-in-law’s trial against Katy Perry
Days before the aggrieved woman interrupted Perry’s legal battle against the octogenarian, the veteran’s daughter-in-law, Kameron Westcott, spoke out about her family’s case. The “Real Housewives of Dallas” star emphasized that Carl never intended to sell his property to the “Roar” hitmaker.
In an Instagram Story update, the reality show personality addressed the real estate dispute trial, which began on September 27. The case revolved around Perry and Bloom’s insistence that the 84-year-old had adequate mental capacity when he agreed to sell his home, while Carl claimed otherwise.
“We are on the second day of the trial and I just wanted to explain the obvious. The other party is basically saying that he was in the right frame of mind to sign the document he signed. And he is 84 years old again,” Kameron explained in the video. “At that time, I still had Huntington’s disease, dementia, and within that, you have impulsive behaviors.”
The blonde beauty reaffirmed that her father-in-law never planned to sell the property, but sadly came to his senses after signing the deal. Kameron stated that Carl’s legal battle against Perry and Bloom was to raise awareness about protecting the elderly and preventing future victims.
“We’re just here fighting for their justice, and I just hope that in the future this doesn’t happen to anyone else’s parents. “Just horrible having to go through this,” the social media influencer lamented.
“We have to protect our elders. We need to be a little kinder to our elders, and it may seem like they are in the right state of mind, but that doesn’t mean they are,” Kameron concluded in his post.
Fans Slam Katy Perry Because Her Real Estate Case Inspired Elder Protection Bill
However, the drama between the “Wide Awake” singer and the octogenarian came with an unexpected blessing for the elders. Following the viral case, efforts to pass the Seniors’ Real Estate Protection Act during Retirement Years skyrocketed as people began to worry about the possibility of older generations being pushed out of their homes.
The bill, infamously known as the Katy Perry Law, would address “the risks of elder financial abuse, especially as it relates to sales and transfers of property and real estate” if adopted. More information about the Law, according to its website, read:
“The Law establishes a 72-hour recovery period during which any of the parties involved in a contract for the transfer of a personal residence, in which one of the parties is over 75 years of age, may terminate the agreement without penalty.”
Fans reacted positively to the news, with many criticizing the “Dark Horse” hitmaker for fighting to buy the house from an unwilling man. “Imagine if an elder abuse bill was named after him,” one social media user joked. Another critic slammed Perry, writing, “Lmaooo they had to come up with something to stop her.”
