Sister Catherine Rose Holzman of the Archidiocese of Los Angeles - who has clashed with the pop star over the sale of a convent - passed away on Friday (03.09.18), after collapsing during a court hearing related to the dispute, CBS News reports.

The sisters said they were unhappy with Perry buying the property, due to her provocative music, with Callanan telling LA Times: "I found her videos".

Earlier a year ago, a judge had ruled that the archdiocese had the sole right to sell the property, and not the nuns who once lived in the Los Feliz convent, and thus the nuns' sale to Hollister was not valid. "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.

A nun entangled in a long legal battle with popstar Katy Perry died in court this week.

Gomez added that he has offered a Mass for "the repose of her soul".

"To Katy Perry, please stop".

She was one of two nuns locked in a legal battle with Perry and the Los Angeles Archdiocese over a former convent in the city.

The case was already awarded to Perry and the Archdiocese in December, with a judge ordering both parties their split of a $10 million sum.

Holzman was interviewed by a local Fox affiliate just hours before her death. It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people, ' the late nun warned.

ABC reported the sisters pooled their money together to buy the 8-acre property in 1972. But, against our will, the Archdiocese removed us to "monetize" our property. Hollister told The Hollywood Reporter that Perry was going all the way to the top by "using back channels in Rome to appeal to the Vatican and Pope Francis with her $30 million offer". They also claimed to possess property documents.

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.
