Clinton supporter Katy Perry has admitted that her religious parents voted for rival Donald Trump.

Billionaire TV personality-turned-Republican candidate Trump took the US presidency overnight after a series of victories over rival Hillary Clinton. Trump had won several “swing states”, including Florida, Ohio, Iowa and North Carolina, allowing him to reach the 270 electoral college votes needed to ensure victory.

Speaking at a Clinton rally earlier in the night, Perry took to the stage to give a speech and said: “Tonight, my parents voted for Trump. But you know what? We will still all be sitting at the same table for Thanksgiving. And this is the moment we need to remember that we all love our parents, and we all love our children.” Watch in the clip below.

Perry’s parents are born again Christians. The singer herself started her career as a Christian rock singer.
