Nun In Legal Battle With Katy Perry Over Property Dies In Court

As FOX 11 reported on the legal battle between local nuns and Katy Perry over a Los Feliz convent, we learned that one of the nuns involved in the case collapsed and died Friday during a court proceeding related to the case. "Sister Catherine Rose served the Church with dedication and love for many years and today we remember her life with gratitude".

The legal battle, which has spanned three years now, began when Perry put in an offer to purchase the convent as she wanted to transform it into a home and rehearsal studio.

She and Sister Rita Callanan claimed to have documents from the Vatican which proved they were the rightful owners of the 1927-built Bernard Maybeck-designed compound, which they had lived in since 1978.

"We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones".

The pair were trying to sell a convent in the Los Feliz neighbourhood of LA to a restaurateur named Dana Hollister.

She was one of two nuns locked in a legal battle with Perry and the Los Angeles Archdiocese over a former convent in the city. "She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us".

A jury ruled in Katy and the Archdiocese's favor previous year and Hollister was ordered to pay $15 million in damages. It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people, ' the late nun warned.

In a 2015 interview with Billboard, Holzman outlined one of the deepest concerns about the archdiocese's sale to Perry; since the superstar's $14.5 million offer, including $10 million in cash, was brokered without their involvement, they would never see a penny from the sale.

Only hours before, she'd begged Perry to leave them alone.

"Katy Perry represents everything we don't believe in", Holzman told Billboard.

She collapsed during a court hearing in Los Angeles Friday, in what has been a protracted effort by the nuns to keep Perry from taking ownership of the property.
