Talk about divine intervention – Katy Perry has had her $15 million convent property victory frozen in court!
The ‘Firework’ singer had been involved in a lengthy legal battle over the convent in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, which she thought that she had won.
Last year a jury ordered restaurant owner Dana Hollister to pay over $15 million in damages after it was determined that she had interfered in the original sale.
Perry, 33, tried to buy the convent in 2014, but was told by the nuns that owned it that they had already sold it to Hollister.
Sisters Rita Callanan and Catherine Rose Holzman, wanted to sell the historic 1920’s building to Hollister who owns several star-studded restaurants and bars in Los Angeles.
But Perry disputed the sale in court and a judge decided Hollister knew that the nuns did not have the authority to sell the property, and ordered her to pay punitive damages.
The jury instructed Hollister to pay $5 million in legal fees, $6.7 million to the Los Angeles archdiocese and another $3.3 million to Perry’s company.
But now the multi-millionaire restaurateur has filed for bankruptcy and the entire ruling has been put on hold.
The judge has now asked for a report by May 8.
