Katy Perry v God

Katy Perry v God

It isn't every day that you hear a pop star has gone to battle with God and won, but such is the power of Katy Perry, that even veteran ladies of the cloth with God on their side, couldn't reel her in for a victory. Either that, or as the judge suggested, she was actually just in the right on this occasion...

The Great Battle of Los Feliz

Bascailly, quite some months ago now, Katy Perry decided she wanted to buy an old nun convent in Los Feliz - the convent of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The nuns weren't having it and decided that they would sell to a different buyer.

It's just the latest twist in the ongoing feud between the popstar, a well-known local restaurateur wishing to buy the property, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and two old ladies. The nuns wanted to sell the property to restaurateur, Dana Hollister for $15.5 million. But the Archdiocese reckons that the nun's agreement is not legal given they have jurisdiction over the property. They argue that their interntion to sell the property to Perry for $14.5 million in cash is legally binding.

The battle may appear over but the property is not yet Perry's and the feud may rage on yet. Her attorney said, “We won the real property issues,” in a statement, according to The LA Times. But it might not be so easy. The oppsoing attorney, representing the nuns insisted, "As far as I'm concerned, it's game on," said John Scholnick.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Bowick, on Wednesday, ruled that the sale to restaurateur, Dana Hollister, would be blocked. At this point, while it appears to put Perry one step closer to being able to make the purchase, it is not 100% clear if this is a definite for the singer.
