Her lengthy struggle against businesswoman Dana Hollister over the purchase of a disused convent in Los Angeles is nearly at an end.
Katy Perry’s prospective purchase of a former convent in Los Angeles, which intendeds to be converted into a huge mansion, has come one step closer to being realised after a judge ruled that the sale of the property to a businesswoman was void.
On Wednesday, L.A. judge Stephanie Bowick ruled that the nuns who had attempted to sell the convent in the Los Feliz hilltops area of the city to businesswoman Dana Hollister, who had wanted to develop it into a boutique hotel, had done so improperly by not seeking the permission of the archbishop of Los Angeles.
This puts the 8-acre property back on the market, with Perry’s standing bid of $14.5 million reportedly the preferred option for the archbishop, according to the Associated Press.
