  • Sister Catherine Rose Holzman 89 is shown during an older court proceeding alongside the property she is in a battle with the L.A. archdiocese and Katy Perry over

Holzman and other nuns from the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary purchased the convent in 1971, before being evicted by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in 2011.

A nun involved in a legal battle with Katy Perry has died in court. 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.

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 initially wanted to sell it to a local businesswoman, Dana Hollister, who wanted to turn it into a boutique hotel while promising to preserve the convent itself. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", according to the gossip site.

The pair were trying to sell a convent in the Los Feliz neighbourhood of LA to a restaurateur named Dana Hollister.

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman of the Archidiocese of Los Angeles has died.

"We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones".


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. They also have issues with the singer herself.

She told Fox 11 Los Angeles: "To Katy Perry, please stop".

A judge ruled that the sale of the convent was invalid and Perry and the Catholic Church were awarded a total of nearly $10m (£7.2m) in damages in December past year.

Perry reportedly visited the nuns to win them over, and is said to have shown them her tattoo of Jesus and sung a hymn for them.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps of Katy Perry for a comment.

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