Katy Perry kicks inflatable ball into fan's face

  Katy Perry kicks inflatable ball into fan's face Katy Perry accidentally kicked an inflatable ball straight into a fan's face during her concert in Utah on Friday (24Nov17). Inflatable balls designed to look like eyeballs are circulated throughout the audience as part of the singer's Witness tour, and she sometimes kicks or punches them back towards the crowd if they start to come close to the stage. During her recent show in Salt Lake City, Katy got a bit carried away and unwittingly kicked one right into her fan's face. Video footage taken by the fan shows the singer performing an energetic rendition of Roar and deflecting the incoming balls, and launches one straight in the direction of the cameraperson. The ball hits the screen of the phone, making it go black, and the device is dropped to the floor. As it is picked back up, the fan’s friend can be seen laughing. "I didn’t realise that she was kicking it right at my face until it was too late," the fan wrote with the footage. “The ball hit me right square in the face and knocked my phone out of my hands. I was so shocked and started laughing hysterically. “Everyone around me asked me if I was okay and I was just laughing uncontrollably. My phone died shortly after, so once I got home and charged it I watched the video and it was hilarious." This isn't the first time Katy has had an onstage mishap during her Witness tour; the singer was left stranded up in the air when a prop of the planet Saturn malfunctioned and failed to bring her back down to the stage during a show in Nashville, Tennessee in October. She ended up jumping into the crowd.

Katy Perry has won a major victory in her battle to take over a Los Feliz convent in Los Angeles.

The singer and Archdiocese of Los Angeles officials have been awarded a share of $10 million (GBP7.4 million) after winning punitive damages in a dispute over the former home of the Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary.

A jury previously ordered local businesswoman Dana Hollister to pay more than $5 million (GBP3.7 million) in compensatory damages for interfering in the sale of the convent, and on Monday (04Dec17), Christmas came early for the plaintiffs as they were awarded $10 million in punitive damages.

Lawmakers awarded $6.6 million (GBP4.9 million) to the archdiocese and $3.3 million (GBP2.45 million) to Roar singer Perry.

"We're obviously very pleased," Perry's attorney Eric Rowen said outside court.

Last month (Nov17), a jury found Hollister, who challenged Perry over the sale of the convent, guilty of slander of title, interference with contractual relations and interference with prospective economic advantage, and awarded the archdiocese $3.47 million (GBP2.8 million) and Perry almost $1.6 million (GBP1.2 million) in compensatory damages.

The jury members also ruled Hollister acted with malice.

She claimed she agreed the sale of the former convent through the co-operation of Sisters Rita Callanan and Catherine Rose Holzman, who maintained they had the authority to sell the property. Judge Stephanie Bowick later cancelled the deal and ruled Perry was the rightful owner.

In court, Hollister testified she was surprised to learn that an offer from Perry was being considered after she thought she had bought the estate.

Archdiocese lawyer Kirk Dillman insisted Hollister, who was planning to turn the property into a boutique hotel, refused to give up the convent without a fight.

Perry bought the place for $14.5 million (GBP10.7 million). She'll officially move in when an alternative property for the house of prayer is found.
