A nun who was involved in a property lawsuit with pop star Katy Perry has died after collapsing in court.

The singer sought to buy the 32,375-square-metre property and its Roman-villa style buildings for US$14.5 million. However, when Perry expressed an interest in the property and got involved, a legal squabble ensued.

The two sisters, who are of the original five, have always claimed to be the rightful owners of the convent having lived their since 1973 until their leave in 2011.

'We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones, ' he added.

However, Katy won the legal battle the following year, in 2016. They initially wanted to sell it to a local businesswoman, Dana Hollister, who wanted to turn it into a boutique hotel while promising to preserve the convent itself. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", according to the gossip site.

Hours before her death, Holzman spoke to KTTV, speaking out against a judge's ruling that cleared the way for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to sell a convent in the Los Feliz neighbourhood to Perry. The archdiocese released a statement regarding her sudden death.

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. They also have issues with the singer herself.

Prior to all the court proceedings, Perry met with Sister Callanan and Sister Holzman by invitation of Archbishop José at the convent and sung "Oh Happy Day" to them.

While walking into court on Friday, Holzman was interviewed by Fox 11 and said "To Katy Perry, please stop".

A judge voided Hollister's sale previous year, saying the archdiocese had the right to sell the property, not the nuns. However, the sisters preferred Hollister's offer as it was more at $15.5 million and they had a stronger bond with her.
