“American Idol” judge Katy Perry is asking for any discussion of how rich she is to be banned from being discussed during an upcoming court trial, in which a Christian gospel group is accusing her of stealing their music.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the singer — along with music producer Dr. Luke and rapper Juicy J — are asking a judge to not allow the jury to hear comments about their wealth.
In her motion, Perry says any discussion during the trial of her “general wealth” has no relevance to the case at hand. She believes the gospel group suing her will only try to bring it up in hopes of biasing the jury to award high damages.
The singer is worth A LOT of money, with an estimated net worth of hundreds of millions. Forbes has her pulling in $83 million in 2018. She previously made over $130 million during 2015 and commands $20 million per season as a judge on “American Idol.”
Dr. Luke and Juicy J are both very successful in their own rights, with generous net worths for both.
