The ‘Fireworks’ singer’s dad Keith urges people to pray for Katy.
Katy Perry’s father has labeled his own daughter as a “devil child.”
According to a report by the UK’s The Sun, firebrand preacher Keith Perry has made claims that watching his famous daughter perform is so hellish that he finds himself weeping because the fans are worshipping the “Fireworks” singer instead of God.
Perry’s parents are currently touring American churches as guest speakers and allegedly in Perry’s father’s sermons he urges people to “pray for Katy.”
The couple reportedly show a video on their tour which depicts their pop star daughter as a “devil child” who needs “healing.”
“They ask how I can preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?” her father said at a speaking engagement in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. according to The Sun.
“I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation and they were going at it. It almost looked like church.”
“I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing,” he continued.
Perry’s mom and dad also asked for donations, “not one or two dollars, but 20s” so they can reportedly go to Switzerland.
The 28-year-old singer, who split from British bad boy husband Russell Brand last year, has topped the Billboard charts with eight No. 1 singles thus far in her career.
