Katy Perry may have been branded a “devil child” by her own father Keith, but the popstar is believed to be reaching out to her religious parents in an attempt to build bridges, a new report claims.
The Firework singer hit headlines this month when her pastor dad said that he thought the star needed healing during a sermon in Santa Fe Springs, Calif, after watching one of her concerts.

According to Star magazine, the 28-year-old has been trying to heal the rift in her family and recently sent her mum Mary 100 red carnations to mark Mother’s Day earlier this month, along with posting the tweet: "I love you mom".
The gesture is said to have been followed by the popstar issuing her parents with a "make or break" ultimatum.
"Their relationship has been frayed but lately it’s reached a point where Katy feels like it’s make or break," a source told the weekly women’s mag.
"Yes, she’s a singer and some of her lifestyle choices may clash with her strict upbringing. But she needs her parents to know that she’s not a ‘devil child’ and that she is a good person."
Katy has opened up about her difficult relationship with her parents and recently revealed that her mum disapproved of her marriage to Russell Brand. "My mum thanks God every day for my divorce," she admitted.
A rep for Katy was contacted on the story but declined to comment.
