Katy Perry Nun Involved in Singer's Lawsuit Drops Dead in Court

Nun in legal dispute with Katy Perry collapses and dies in court The nun in legal dispute with Katy Perry collapsed and died in court

Pulling no punches, Sisters Rita Callanan and Holzman of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart spoke out for the first time since an LA County judge ruled against them clearing the way for the LA Archdiocese to sell their Los Feliz convent to singer Katy Perry.

A nun entangled in a long legal battle with popstar Katy Perry died in court this week. Nonetheless, the optics are bad for Perry, and by conflating aspects of the story, some are attributing Holzman's death to Perry's persistence in acquiring the property.

In an interview with ET in 2015, Sister Catherine told ET that she didn't think Perry was the right person to maintain the legacy of the convent. But the Archdiocese claims to have already entered a deal to sell the property to Katy Perry for a slightly less cool $14.5 million, and now the two holy sides are butting heads in court.

Nuns comprising the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart claim to be the rightful sellers of a convent in Los Feliz that happens to be a valuable real estate asset.

A judge voided Hollister's sale past year, saying the archdiocese had the right to sell the property, not the nuns. Katy Perry wants it and she has no concern for the bad path of destruction she is creating to get it.

"Sister Catherine Rose served the Church with dedication and love for many years and today we remember her life with gratitude", said Los Angeles Archbishop in a statement. It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people, ' the late nun warned.

In December, Perry was awarded $3.3 million in damages, on top of a previous payout of $1.6 million in compensatory damages to help fund the case.

And they're also making a plea to Perry herself.

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.

To Katy Perry, please stop. However, the sisters preferred Hollister's offer as it was more at $15.5 million and they had a stronger bond with her.
