Katy Perry Vs Nuns Over Former Convent

(Radio.com) Katy Perry has some opposition in the way of some nuns from the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary who don't want Perry to buy a former convent located on a hilltop in Los Feliz, California.

According to the CBS L.A., the nuns are locked in a land dispute with the Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez and Perry, who is looking to buy the former convent, worth millions of dollars.

Perry has been in talks with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles to pay $10 million for the property. The problem is the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary have already struck up a deal with local restaurateur Dana Hollister to take over the convent. Now, the archdiocese has filed a lawsuit asking to block the nun's sale of the property.

In a statement the archdiocese wrote, 'Unfortunately, the archdiocese had to take civil action to protect against the unauthorized action by Ms. Hollister, which was undertaken after the preferred transaction had been accepted with the Sisters." Read more here.
