Katy Perry lawsuit: Nun involved in property row 'dies in court'

A legal battle involving Katy Perry and a group of nuns is like the premise for a Sick Sad World bit from Daria (shout out to my 90's boys out there) and has now at least in part been linked to one nun's death.

Sister Holzman, apparently, sided with Hollister, telling the court, "We asked [Hollister] to save us, to buy the property. She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us", Sister Catherine said.

Hollister, a successful restauranteur, looked to turn the property into a boutique hotel, while Perry sought a private residence for her mother and grandmother. However, when Perry expressed an interest in the property and got involved, a legal squabble ensued.

Earlier past year, a judge had ruled that the archdiocese had the sole right to sell the property, and not the nuns who once lived in the Los Feliz convent, and thus the nuns' sale to Hollister was not valid. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", Holzman said.

In 2016, a judge sided with the archdiocese and Perry and invalidated the sale to Hollister, clearing a path for Perry to buy the convent. Hollister told The Hollywood Reporter that Perry was going all the way to the top by "using back channels in Rome to appeal to the Vatican and Pope Francis with her $30 million offer". In November of past year, a jury found that Hollister had intentionally interfered with the sale to Perry and a judge ordered her to pay millions to the archdiocese and the singer.

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

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

Holzman spoke to Fox 11 as she walked into the LA County Court on Friday and pleaded with the singer to end the legal fight over the convent the nuns lived in from 1971 until 2011.
