Nun In Never-Ending Convent Lawsuit Against Katy Perry Drops Dead In Court At A Hearing For The Case

no title

Remember that lawsuit pitting Katy Perry against a group of nuns and a restaurant owner over an eight-acre convent property in El Lay?

It feels like we've been reporting on this never-ending lawsuit for years. (Oh wait! We HAVE been reporting on this lawsuit for years.)

Well, here's a shocking — and sad — turn to the story.

On Friday afternoon, one of the nuns — Sister Catherine Rose Holzman — was in court for a post-judgment hearing on the case when she died.

Like, per TMZ, the woman literally died while in court about the convent property. So, so bizarre — and very sad.

Apparently, shortly before her death, Holzman had spoken out once more against Perry — who eventually won the lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles over the property — by saying to the media:

Katy Perry Might Not Be Able To Buy That Convent Right Now — But She Could Rent It! Deets HERE!

Can Katy Perry still kind of keep the convent?

An LA judge may have made a ruling in the Katy Perry convent drama, but the fight is far from over!

On Thursday, Judge James C. Chalfant declared that the nuns of the Immaculate Heart of Mary made an invalid sale when they allowed developer Dana Hollister to purchase a Los Feliz convent.

The singer had also been vying for the holy building, and was the archbishop's preferred buyer. However, a group of nuns went ahead and sold the property to Dana, who offered $15.5 million, as opposed to KP's offer of $14.5 million.

Since Miz Hollister had already registered a deed for the convent, the archbishop had to press pause on the pop princess' purchase.

Now, the whole ordeal is involved in so much litigation that the judge says it could take months, or even years, to finally settle the case. He told the archbishop's lawyers:

"You're not selling to Katy Perry anytime soon."

However, the 30-year-old's lawyers pressed to kick Dana out of the building so Katy can rent it while everything is being sorted out.

But, the judge decided to present an option that would allow both Dana AND Miz Perry to duke it out to determine who would rent the property for the time being, saying:

"We'll have a battle of potential lessees."

Even though he said the sale was invalid, Mr. Chalfant has set up an additional hearing for September 15 to determine whether or not Dana will be able to keep the convent.

What do U think of all this Holy drama, Perezcious readers?

Katy Perry Wants To Buy A Former Convent — But The Nuns Don't Want Her To Have It! Holy Dramz!

Katy Perry fights with nuns over a convent.

Katy Perry in a fight with nuns?! Say it ain't so!

Crazily enough, it's true. The pop star is currently in the midst of a real estate legal battle over a former convent located in the hills of Los Feliz in Los Angeles.

Katy and restaurateur Dana Hollister BOTH want the villa-style, multi-acre former convent for themselves, but there's some issue with who legally owns the property.

Archbishop Jose Gomez insists the property belongs to the archdiocese, while the five remaining Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (who used to reside there) say it's theirs.

In fact, about two weeks ago, the sisters signed the property over to Hollister for $15.5 million, while the archdiocese was still finalizing its deal with Katy, who offered to pay $14.5 million in CASH for the convent.

But the pop singer might still be able to claim the convent as her own if it is determined that Archbishop Gomez is the true legal owner.

Eva Mendes Wanted To Be A Nun!

Filed under: Eva Mendes

eva-mendes-wanted-to-be-a-nun

Ha! This is pretty cute!

Eva Mendes recently revealed that when she was a little girl, she wanted to become a nun - but that all quickly changed when she discovered that they don't get paid!

She explains:

"We didn't grow up with a lot of money so I would always tell my mom, 'Mommy I am going to buy you a big house when I grow up, and a car.' And my sister said to me one day when I was ten, 'How are you going to buy mom all these things? You are going to be a nun and nuns don't get paid.' I said, 'What?' and that was it, my convent dreams were over. I feel I have so much to be thankful for, and it means nothing if I can't give back. I do it within my own family and I do it with certain charities, particularly the art of the Elysium, which helps children in hospital heal themselves through art therapy."

So sweet!

And we commend Eva for taking her very lucrative career path and choosing to give back to others!

You definitely couldn't have done that as a nun, bb.
