Nun Tragically Dies In Court Amid Legal Battle Against Katy Perry
A nun involved in Katy Perry's lawsuit over the ownership of a Los Angeles convent tragically passed away late last week, while appearing in court.
ICYMI, Katy offered to buy a Los Feliz convent from the Archdiocese of LA in 2014 for $15 million, but the two nuns who lived there opposed her offer because she's the daughter of two Pentecostal pastors and felt she was unworthy.
"After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit," Sister Catherine said in an interview in 2015.
The nuns then tried to sell the convent to a restaurant owner named Dana Hollister for $44,000, instead of Katy, and things turned very sour.
Katy and the Archdiocese sued Hollister over her interference in their deal and were awarded $15 million for punitive damages.
In a court appearance last Friday, Sister Catherine pleaded with Katy to stop.
"...And to Katy Perry, please stop. It's not doing anyone good except hurting a lot of people."
"Katy Perry, please stop. It’s not doing anyone any good." – Sister Catherine Rose Holzman's last words, before dying at 89.

Just hours later, Sister Catherine collapsed in court and sadly passed away.
Meanwhile, Katy was captured learning to tango at a club in Buenos Aires, blissfully unaware of the tragic events happening in Los Angeles.

No word from the 'Swish Swish' singer on Sister Catherine's death, or the lawsuit, but it all sounds very messy.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sister Catherine and her family.
