Nun Embroiled in Katy Perry Legal Conflict Dies at 89

Nun fighting sale of convent to Katy Perry dies in court

Sister Holzman was 89 when she collapsed in the courtroom, later to be pronounced dead.

In 2015 Katy Perry entered into a legal battle with nuns, Sister Rita Callanan and the now late Sister Catherine Rose Holzman who passed away on Friday.

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman collapsed during a post-judgment hearing stemming from a lawsuit filed by Perry and the Archdiocese of L.A. against a prospective buyer for an 8-acre convent in the Los Feliz area of L.A. being sold by Holzman and another nun.

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.

However, that sale was blocked by a judge in 2016, who claimed that the proposed deal was invalid, thereby leaving Katy with the opportunity to purchase the property.

The case was already awarded to Perry and the Archdiocese in December, with a judge ordering both parties their split of a $10 million sum. "She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us".

See more in the video below. Still, according to the Daily Mail Perry is worth a reported $295 million, so she might want to either shell out the extra million, or just find another spot. "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. And "to Katy Perry, please stop". They say their convent is under the direct control of the Vatican and has never been a part of the LA Archdiocese. 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. However, the sisters preferred Hollister's offer as it was more at $15.5 million and they had a stronger bond with her. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", she said.

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.
