Nun in legal battle with Katy Perry dies in court

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman of the Archidiocese of Los Angeles, who was one of two nuns in dispute with the 33-year-old pop star, collapsed and died in court on Friday at the age of 89, reports Fox 7. "Sister Catherine Rose served the Church with dedication and love for many years and today we remember her life with gratitude".

She and Sister Rita Callanan claimed to have documents from the Vatican which proved they were the rightful owners of the 1927-built Bernard Maybeck-designed compound, which they had lived in since 1978.

The "Firework" singer a year ago won a legal battle against two nuns and restaurateur Dana Hollister.

Archbishop Jose Gomez said: "I was sad to hear the news of her passing and I have offered a mass for the repose of her soul".

A judge ruled that the sale of the convent was invalid and Perry and the Catholic Church were awarded a total of nearly $10m (£7.2m) in damages in December previous year.

In contrast, Hollister made her offer - with only $100,000 in cash - directly to their order. They also have issues with the singer herself. "It would be a sin to sell to her".

Holzman spoke to Fox 11 as she walked into the LA County Court on Friday and pleaded with the singer to end the legal fight over the convent the nuns lived in from 1971 until 2011.
