Nun drops dead during Katy Perry lawsuit hearing

Nun dies during court proceeding over property battle with LA Archdiocese, Katy Perry

The Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary have owned the property for more than 40 years, but they have not lived in the convent for several years.

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

In 2016, a judge ruled that the nuns' sale to Hollister was invalid, paving the way for Perry to purchase the property. The L.A. archdiocese subsequently sued her, saying the sisters didn't have the authority to sell the convent. Perry spent more than $2 million in legal fees fighting the small group of elderly nuns, according to Curbed LA.

She collapsed during a court hearing in Los Angeles Friday, in what has been a protracted effort by the nuns to keep Perry from taking ownership of the property. 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. The case was appealed and has been in litigation since. The legal battle were and still are for the rights over a former convent in Los Angeles and also included local restaurateur and aspiring developer Dana Hollister.

Minnesota House rep wants to ban 'Bachelor' from stepping foot in state
Becca, who said she was in love with Arie , is back on the dating scene and she is "ready" for another relationship. Becca hasn't responded to the tweet or the bill but I think she'd be okay with it. "I've been in love in the past".

But the nuns were reportedly unimpressed by the fact Perry had to read the lyrics on her smartphone and were nonplussed by the tattoo of Jesus on her wrist. Before her death, Sister Holzman told Fox11 LA that, "We asked [Hollister] to save us, to buy the property".

A jury agreed with Katy Perry and the Catholic Church that Hollister had acted with malice, and awarded them $10 million.

"After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and our older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit", she said. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", Holzman said.

It is unclear if the case will continue now that the Sister has passed away.
