Nuns already sold property to another buyer.

Katy Perry is not only famous for her record-breaking hits, but her widely publicized feud with singer-songwriter Taylor Swift has also garnered some spotlight. However, it seems that Taylor Swift isn't the only one Katy Perry shares "Bad Blood" with.

Katy Perry visited with nuns expressing her desires for the property, but did not win them over.

MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - The "Dark Horse" singer is currently caught in a legal battle with a group of nuns. Perry will be heading to court against the nuns from the Immaculate Heart of Mary after she procured the convent they reside in for $14.5 million.

Katy Perry purchased the Los Feliz, California, property from Los Angeles Archbishop, Jose Gomez. The problem with the transaction, however, is that the nuns are now appealing, claiming they already accepted an offer for the land from a restaurateur for the price of $1 million more.


Two weeks earlier, the sisters at the convent sold the property for $15.5 million to restaurateur, Dana Hollister. Afterwards, they discovered the land had been sold to the pop star, claiming that the sisters had no right to the estate and therefore no rights to sell.

Katy Perry is currently facing a legal battle with nuns


Katy Perry met with the nuns a few months ago and Perry shared that she "wanted to live on the property with her mother and grandmother, sit in the meditation garden, sip green tea and find herself." This did not win over the nuns though, and they decided to sell to Hollister. The nuns claim the singer's pop star facade is one of the reasons they were reluctant to offer her the property.
 
"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 shared.

The sisters purchased the convent decades ago after merging their money. This is why they assert they are the ones who own the right to sell, not Gomez.

To make things worse, Dana Hollister has already moved onto the property, while Katy Perry was also there last week with an architect.
