I’m not really sure what’s up with Katy Perry. You know, like, in a general sense. She’s still on her Prismatic World Tour, which won’t wrap up until October, and then I guess anything’s possible. Like, perhaps, her owning a convent – if she doesn’t lose out to the two nuns she’s currently locked in a bidding war with as we speak! You see, Katy’s trying to get her paws on Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary convent in L.A.’s Loz Feliz neighbourhood, and the nuns aren’t really feeling it.
According to documents obtained by Us Weekly, two of the five nuns, Sister Rita Callanan and Sister Catherine Rose, argue that the villa-style hilltop convent, which offers views of downtown L.A. and the San Gabriel Mountains, is legally theirs to sell. Sister Rita and Sister Catherine sold the property to restaurateur Dana Hollister for $15.5 million — an issue since Archbishop Jose Gomez is claiming that the property is his to sell.
Gomez, for his part, has been busy negotiating the sale of the property to Perry, who, according to the L.A. Times, is willing to shell out $14.5 million in cash to make the property her home.
The songstress even visited with the nuns in an attempt to seal the deal. However, Sister Rita wasn’t a fan.
“Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and…if it’s all right to say, I wasn’t happy with any of it,” Sister Rita told the paper of her quick Internet search. “We have given many years to this archdiocese and we have served them well,” she added. “For the archdiocese to…put us under a bus and run over us, I’m sorry, it was just too much for me.”
According to the documents, Gomez has sued Hollister with the intent to have her purchase of the property voided. Perry has been granted a court order to visit the property, which she recently did with her architect.
I mean, why does she even want a convent? To turn it into a luxury house? I mean, whatever, I guess… I can see why the nuns don’t want Perry taking the property, but I suppose times change and rich people tend to get what they want in the end…
