Katy Perry Wins Property Lawsuit

Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Singer and performer Katy Perry has been awarded $5 million in damages after she and the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Los Angeles sued a real estate developer for maliciously interfering in Perry’s purchase of a convent. Perry offered to buy the convent, located in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, and turn it into a home. Instead, developer Dana Hollister convinced the nuns of the convent to sell to her. A jury found that the developer acted with malice to interfere in the sale to Perry.

Perry was awarded both actual and punitive damages of around $5 million while the archdiocese was awarded approximately $10 million. Before Perry could complete the sale, the Sisters of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary decided to sell the property to Hollister. Reportedly, only five sisters remain in the order. However, the archdiocese claimed ownership of the property and that claim was upheld, paving the way for the lawsuit.
