Nun Battling Katy Perry Over Convent Sale Dies In Court

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

'We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones, ' he added.

It was the first time Holzman and Callanan had spoken out since an LA County judge ruled against them, clearing the way for Perry to by the former convent.

Holzman was part of the order of nuns known as The Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

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

In dispute is the sprawling property in Los Feliz Sister Rose and her fellow nuns bought back in the 1970s from philanthropist Daniel Donohue.

Holzman was interviewed by a local Fox affiliate just hours before her death. "She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us", TMZ reported.

A jury ruled in Katy and the Archdiocese's favor a year ago and Hollister was ordered to pay $15 million in damages.

Hours before her death she spoke to United States news channel Fox 11 LA, decrying the ruling that cleared the way for the sale of the property to Perry.

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.

Perry - daughter of Protestant pastors - had tried to win over the nuns, even going so far as to stage a private performance for them, singing Oh Happy Day.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps of Katy Perry for a comment. It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people, ' the late nun warned. Shortly before her death, she reportedly said: "And to Katy Perry, please stop".

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