Nun Embroiled in Katy Perry Legal Conflict Dies at 89
Singer Katy Perry got caught up in a lawsuit involving two nuns and the Los Angeles Archdiocese

Nuns comprising the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart claim to be the rightful sellers of a convent in Los Feliz that happens to be a valuable real estate asset.
Katy Perry had offered to buy it from Archdiocese of Los Angeles for nearly $15million in 2014.
During a post-judgement hearing on Friday, Sister Holzman collapsed and died.
A nun involved in a legal battle with Katy Perry has died in court. Hollister was in the process of renovating the convent, which she planned to turn into a hotel and restaurant project, when she was sued by the archdiocese.
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".
Sister Catherine Rose Holzman and another nun were attempting to sell an 8-acre convent in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. "We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones", a statement from the archdiocese read. Her bid still needs approval by the Vatican.
"Katy Perry represents everything we don't believe in", Holzman told Billboard.
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 past year. They occupied it until 2011 when they say the church's archdiocese forced them to move out to other locations.
In December a jury in LA awarded a total of $10 million in punitive damages to Perry and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles; It followed an earlier decision to award $5 million in compensatory damages divided between the two entities on November 17.
Another of the nun's concerns is with the singer herself. Just that day, Sister Holzman had been interviewed by a Fox 11 reporter, Stephanie Stanton, where she asked for help from Pope Francis and for Perry to "please stop" as her continual involvement has "hurt a lot of people". "It would be a sin to sell to her".
