Nun dies in court during legal battle with Katy Perry over convent

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman 89 is shown during an older court proceeding alongside the property she is in a battle with the L.A. archdiocese and Katy Perry over

A nun who was involved in a lawsuit with pop star Katy Perry over the sale of a convent in Los Angeles died on Friday after collapsing in court.

Sister Catherine Rose Holzman was among a group of nuns that were battling Perry in court over her purchase of a former convent in Los Feliz.

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.

However, a Pentagon memo declared the parade to be excluding tanks in order to lessen the impact inflicted on roads. There are also plans for soldiers to wear period uniforms dating back to the Revolutionary War.

While Archbishop Jose Gomez was negotiating a cash sale of the property to Katy Perry for $14.5 million, the Sisters sold the property Hollister for $20.3 million, in a note.

But local entrepreneur Dana Hollister stepped in and attempted to buy the property from two nuns who had lived there for $US15.5 million ($19.7 million).

During an interview in 2015, she explained: "After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and our older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit". "Katy Perry wants it and she has no concern for the bad path of destruction she is creating to get it". "It's not doing anyone any good [and it's] hurting a lot of people". At the time, Hollister was already living in the huge property.

Turkey-led rebels have been pressing an assault on the Kurdish enclave of Afrin since January 20. The channel has been reporting since last week that rebels have prevented civilians from leaving.

Katy originally bought the historic pad for $19 million AUD back in 2015 direct from the archdiocese, but her plans to turn the religious building into a lavish home fell through, when the nuns sold it.

"We asked [Dana Hollister] to save us, to buy the property. We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones", he continued.

Archbishop Gomez released a statement saying Holzman had served the church "with dedication and love for many years".

Thus she commented on the attack on former Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) Colonel Sergey Skripal in Salisbury on March 4. Skripal had been "turned" by MI6 in 1995, the FSB said, and had been in contact with British agents at the Moscow embassy.

At the time of Holzman's death on Friday, she was in court for a post-judgment hearing on the case, TMZ reports. They said the Vatican controls their convent and appealed the sale directly to Pope Francis.
