Nun in Katy Perry real estate battle dies at court appearance | Page Six

Holzman and another nun had agreed to sell their eight-acre hilltop estate to a restaurateur in 2015 for $15.5 million, with the understanding the woman would turn it into a boutique hotel.
Concurrently, however, the Archdiocese made a deal to sell the Los Feliz property for $14.5 million to Perry, who planned to convert the 20,000-square-foot convent into a sprawling home.

But Perry wouldn’t take no for an answer. She and the Archdiocese sued the restaurateur, Dana Hollister, in 2015, claiming Hollister tried to interfere with their deal.

Holzman and another nun — who is now the only remaining member of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary — argued they had the right to sell the property, where they had lived since the 1970s until the Archdiocese evicted them in 2011.


Sounds like God called her home before she could cash on her half of the $15.5 million, which didn't belong to her anyway.

The Archdiocese is dissolving a nunnery and seizing its assets? Cardinal Wolsey would sympathise.
