For the past two years A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has sided with Katy Perry in her legal battle with nuns over plans to turn a former Roman Catholic convent into her new home. Perry has been embroiled in the row over the ownership of the eight-acre property in Los Feliz. Perry initially thought that she would be able to buy the former convent from the archdiocese of Los Angeles, run by Archbishop Jose Gomez, and made a $14.5 million (£9.3 million) bid. However, the five nuns living in the property at the time deemed that Perry would be an unsuitable owner and pushed to to sell it to businesswoman Dana Hollister instead, who wanted to turn it into a hotel. A local Catholic archbishop then argued that it was him and not the nuns who owned the property and that it was his wish to sell the property to Perry.
