A nun embroiled in a property dispute with singer Katy Perry collapsed and died during a court hearing on Friday, US media report.
Hours before her death she spoke to USA news channel Fox 11 LA, decrying the ruling that cleared the way for the sale of the property to Perry.
The legal battle, which has spanned three years now, began when Perry put in an offer to purchase the convent as she wanted to transform it into a home and rehearsal studio.
Earlier previous year, a judge had ruled that the archdiocese had the sole right to sell the property, and not the nuns who once lived in the Los Feliz convent, and thus the nuns' sale to Hollister was not valid.
'We extend our prayers today to the Immaculate Heart of Mary community and to all her friends and loved ones, ' he added.
The pair were trying to sell a convent in the Los Feliz neighbourhood of LA to a restaurateur named Dana Hollister.
The case was brought to court by Perry and the Archdiocese of L.A. against Hollister, whom they allege had tried to interfere with Perry's purchasing of the property.
Upon learning of this, the nuns from The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary claimed the LA Archdiocese didn't have the rights to sell the Los Feliz convent to Perry for $14.5 million. Hollister told The Hollywood Reporter that Perry was going all the way to the top by "using back channels in Rome to appeal to the Vatican and Pope Francis with her $30 million offer".
Sister Catherine Rose and Sister Rita Callanan said they were uncomfortable handing the convent and its eight surrounding acres over to the star, whose sometimes provocative hits include I Kissed A Girl and Ur So Gay.
And they're also making a plea to Perry herself.
A judge ruled in 2016 that the sale was invalid, paving the way for Perry to buy the site from the archdiocese.
While walking into court on Friday, Holzman was interviewed by Fox 11 and said "To Katy Perry, please stop".
