A Nun Involved in Katy Perry's Real-Estate Battle Has Died

A Nun Involved in Katy Perry's Real-Estate Battle Has Died

She died hours later, but the battle isn't over yet.

The two nuns believe that the local courts should never have had anything to do with the case as they said the convent was not related to the Los Angeles Archdiocese and any issues should have gone straight through the Vatican.

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, an 89-year-old Roman Catholic nun, had been fighting Perry over the sale of the eight-acre Los Angeles convent. Holzman collapsed during a court appearance on Friday, Reuters reports, and died shortly after.

The latest squabble centres on allegations by the Archdiocese and Perry that Hollister knowingly interfered in their property deal by misleading the nuns, thus forcing them to participate in two years of unnecessary and expensive legal back and forth.

"Sister Catherine Rose served the Church with dedication and love for many years and today we remember her life with gratitude", Archbishop Jose H. Gomez said Friday in a statement.

The uproar over the property began in 2015 when Holzman and the sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary sold the Medieval-Spanish-Gothic-Tudor estate to restaurateur Dana Hollister.

March Madness 2018: NCAA women's basketball tournament schedule
The Sooners are the first team since 2005 to get an at-large with only 16 wins and they went just 1-8 against RPI top-50 teams. The top four teams matched the NCAA Tournament selection committee's No. 1 seeds: Villanova (30-4) stayed at No. 2.

In December a jury ordered that Hollister pay nearly US$10 million in compensatory damages to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and Perry for interfering with the Archdiocese's sale of the property to the Dark Horse singer.

In 2016, a judge ruled against the nuns, declaring the $15.5 million sale to Hollister invalid and ordered her to pay the archdiocese and Perry millions in legal fees. Her passing is sad, to be sure.

The dispute is over an 8-acre property that the nuns have been living in since 1972. "We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones". "They even admitted it afterwards because they didn't get both sides of the story", Callanan said.

"To Katy Perry, please stop". In December previous year, Perry and the Archdiocese were awarded $15 million punitive damages from Hollister. She also noted that as recently as December, the Vatican's Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura affirmed that the archdiocese was the proper legal owner of the vacant convent property.

In contrast, Hollister made her offer - with only $100,000 in cash - directly to their order. This wasn't the first famous case of lawyering Katy Perry was involved in, either, as she also memorably went to war over Left Shark. She and fellow sister Rita Callanan sold the convent to restauranteur Dana Hollister.
