Nun Involved in Legal Battle With Katy Perry Dies in Court

Nun Involved in Legal Battle With Katy Perry Dies in Court

A judge ruled in 2016 that the nuns' sale to Hollister was invalid, paving the way to a purchase by Perry from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

The singer's deal was scuppered by the move. 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.

All media reports suggest she collapsed at some point while at court on Friday afternoon, and was pronounced dead a few minutes later. She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us", adding, "And to Katy Perry, please stop. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", Holzman said. Her bid still needs approval by the Vatican. Please archbishop. Do what is right in your heart, ' Callahan begged in the televised interview just before her friend's death. Gomez wanted to sell it to Katy, while the remaining five sisters from the convent wanted to sell it to restauranteur Dana Hollister.

"Katy Perry represents everything we don't believe in", Holzman said in 2015.

Hollister had listed her net worth on a loan application at around $16 million in 2014. It sparked months of litigation and highlighted the conflict between the nuns and archdiocese. The panel awarded the archdiocese $3.47 million in compensatory damages and $1.57 million to Perry.




In the lawsuit, the jury found that Hollister interfered with contractual relations and other misdeeds.

While Sister Holzman conceded that Perry was "nice" after the pop star tried to win over the sisters by singing gospel music to them, Sister Holzman did not want Perry to own the property.

A legal battle between Katy Perry and group of nuns has been put on hold after one of the Sisters tragically collapsed and died in court.

Even before the dispute over ownership, The Sisters were at loggerheads with the archdiocese.

However a crackdown by the archdiocese followed.
