They are now in a legal battle against Katy Perry, because the nuns planned to sell the property for a cool $15.5 million to a business woman named Dana Hollister, according to Just Jared. Hollister had plans to turn the former convent into a boutique hotel.

Katy Perry had offered to buy it from Archdiocese of Los Angeles for nearly $15million in 2014.

A nun who was involved in a lawsuit with pop star Katy Perry over the sale of a convent in Los Angeles has collapsed and died during a court appearance related to the case. The cause of death has not yet been released, but experts think it could have to do with the fact that Holzman was eighty-nine-years-old.

The nuns, who haven't lived in the property since 2011, sold the convent to Hollister in 2015.

In 2016, a judge ruled that the nuns' sale to Hollister was invalid, paving the way for Perry to purchase the property.

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.

The legal battle, which has spanned three years now, began when Perry put in an offer to purchase the convent as she wanted to transform it into a home and rehearsal studio.

The deal got all messed up, and Perry and the Archdiocese of L.A. sued Hollister claiming Hollister tried to interfere with Katy's deal to buy the property.

"Katy Perry represents everything we don't believe in", Holzman told Billboard. They also disapproved of Perry's sometimes "revealing" outfits on stage. "It would be a sin to sell to her".

Just hours before she died, she gave an interview to Fox 11, speaking alongside Sister Rita Callanan. They say their convent is under the direct control of the Vatican and has never been a part of the LA Archdiocese. Nonetheless, the optics are bad for Perry, and by conflating aspects of the story, some are attributing Holzman's death to Perry's persistence in acquiring the property.
