Nun Battling Katy Perry Over Convent Sale Dies In Court

Posted March 11, 2018

They are now in a legal battle against Katy Perry, because the nuns planned to sell the property for a cool $15.5 million to a business woman named Dana Hollister, according to Just Jared.

A legal battle between Katy Perry and group of nuns has been put on hold after one of the Sisters tragically collapsed and died in court.

Sister Catherine Rose and Sister Rita Callanan said they were uncomfortable handing the convent and its eight surrounding acres over to the star, whose sometimes provocative hits include I Kissed A Girl and Ur So Gay.

They defended Hollister, who wanted to turn the 20,000 square-foot property into a boutique hotel with the nun's blessing, but has now been forced to declare bankruptcy.

During an interview in 2015, she explained: "After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and our older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit". A Los Angeles judge ruled that the nuns' efforts to sell the property were "improper", allowing Katy to purchase the convent - if the Vatican were to approve. "We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones", a statement from the archdiocese read. They also found that her actions led to Perry and the archdiocese having to pay exorbitant lawyer fees and other costs, which Hollister should get the bill for.

The regulations of the law aim at avoiding bureaucracy and shortening the time required to issue permits. The country is also planning to build seven cities and tourism projects with a focus on the Red Sea.

In December 2017, a judge order Hollister to pay nearly $10 million in compensatory damages to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and Katy for attempting to interfere with the proposed sale.

"It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people".

Perry - daughter of Protestant pastors - had tried to win over the nuns, even going so far as to stage a private performance for them, singing Oh Happy Day. Holzman later added, "And to Katy Perry, please stop".

Perry agreed to buy the property for $14.5m (£10.4m) in 2015, but the deal turned sour when the former residents objected.
