Judge May Rule Katy Perry Can Buy Convent

(Radio.com) Katy Perry has had her eye on a Catholic convent for some time, and it looks as though she's one step closer to finally purchasing it. The Los-Angeles based convent has been locked in a legal dispute about who has the rights to sell the property.

Two remaining sisters of the Institute for the Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary claim they have the right to sell the property to whomever they wish, while the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Los Angeles claims that right actually belongs to him.

The nuns, neither of whom live on the property anymore, would like to sell the convent to business woman and restaurateur Dana Hollister for $15.5 million. The Archbishop, on the other hand, would like to sell it to Perry for $14.5 million (via Buzzfeed).

Perry's attorney Eric Rowen told Buzzfeed that the judge indicated Wednesday (April 13th) she would be siding with the archdiocese. 'Subject to our receiving the written order, we are very pleased with the judge's description of her ruling this morning, which indicates that we won the real property issues, clearing the way for our client to buy the property at issue," he said.
