Nun Dies in Court While Battling Katy Perry Over a Convent

A nun involved in a lawsuit against singer Katy Perry over a convent Perry wishes to purchase collapsed and died in a California courtroom on Friday, March 9, Newsweek reported.

Sister Catherine lived in the convent in Los Feliz with another nun for four decades and, in 2015, she'd tried to sell the property to restaurant owner Dana Hollister, who meant to turn the convent into a hotel.

Sister Rita Callanan added that the sisters planned to fight the ruling.

"Our Sisters were supposed to live for the rest of our lives at our beloved Convent", the nuns wrote on a Web site dedicated to their legal battle.

"Please archbishop... do what is right in your heart".

At issue in the ensuing legal battle was who had the right to sell the property - the Archdiocese or the nuns.

Ahead of the hearing, Holzman spoke to a Fox 11 reporter saying, "To Katy Perry, please stop".

In 2016, a judge ruled against the nuns, declaring the $15.5 million sale to Hollister invalid and ordered her to pay the archdiocese and Perry millions in legal fees.

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman and another nun were attempting to sell an 8-acre convent in Los Angeles.

The years-long dispute involved Holzman (below) and five of her fellow nuns (The Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary) who sold their large convent in 2015 to entrepreneur and hotelier Dana Hollister for $10 million, bypassing approval from Archbishop Jose Gomez. "She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us", says Holzman.

A nun told the Times earlier that many were moved out of the property against their will in 2011.

In 2015, CBS News reported that the singer who got her start in Christian music had even met with the sisters and sung them a gospel song.

With the sisters petitioning the Vatican for sale approval, but the matter not yet decided, the Archbishop and Katy Perry sued the sisters for interference after they proceeded to execute the deed with Hollister. "It's not doing anyone any good [and it's] hurting a lot of people".
