Silver Lake businesswoman loses to Katy Perry in court fight over convent

The property sale will not be finalized until the Los Angeles archdiocese is granted approval from the Vatican, according to the report.

The Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary have owned the property for more than four decades, but they haven't lived in the convent for several years. A judge has voided that sale, saying the archdiocese had the right to sell the property, not the nuns. But the 2 nuns were unmoved, even when Perry visited and sang for them, and insisted they had authority to sell the former convent to a restaurant owner, Dana Hollister.

If Katy Perry gets her wish, this is the view she will enjoy from the hilltop former convent.

Katy Perry will walk away from a years-long real estate squabble $1.57 million richer, after a jury decided a California businesswoman intentionally interfered with the pop star's plans to buy a Los Angeles property that was once a convent.

The jury found Friday that Dana Hollister should pay the archdiocese $3.47 million and Perry $1.57 million for interference with contractual relations and other misdeeds.

In court, Hollister's lawyer said she thought she had the proper authorization and was not trying to cause harm, according to AP.

The trial will move to a second phase in December, when it will be decided if the businesswoman should pay punitive damages as well. She agreed to pay $10 million upfront for her future home plus $4.5m to build a replacement prayer retreat on the grounds.
