Nun in legal battle with Katy Perry dies in court

Sister Catherine Rose (SOURCE

The real estate legal battle began in 2015, when a convent known as California Institute of the Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary was going to be sold.

Hours before her death, Holzman spoke to KTTV, decrying a judge's ruling that cleared the way for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to sell the convent to Perry. She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us", adding, "And to Katy Perry, please stop.

A nun involved in a legal battle over Katy Perry's bid to buy a Los Angeles convent collapsed and died during a Friday court appearance related to the dispute. The two sisters, who are of the original five, have always claimed to be the rightful owners of the convent having lived their since 1973 until their leave in 2011.

Sister Holzman was joined by Sister Rita Callanan in trying to scupper the move by selling the property to a restaurant owner for $44,000 (£31,760). Please archbishop. Do what is right in your heart, ' Callahan begged in the televised interview just before her friend's death. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", Holzman said.

'You have stolen the property of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart. Instead, the sisters wanted to sell the property to Hollister who meant to turn the convent into a boutique hotel.

Hours before her death she spoke to USA news channel Fox 11 LA, decrying the ruling that cleared the way for the sale of the property to Perry. However, the sisters preferred Hollister's offer as it was more at $15.5 million and they had a stronger bond with her.

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. They also disapproved of Perry's sometimes "revealing" outfits on stage.

A jury ruled in Katy and the Archdiocese's favor previous year and Hollister was ordered to pay $15 million in damages.

However a crackdown by the archdiocese followed.
