The elderly nun who is locked in a court battle with pop superstar Katy Perry over the latter’s buy of her convent, claims Miss Perry has ‘blood on her hands’ after her colleague collapsed and died just before they would enter a courthouse in Los Angeles.
Sister Rita Callanan says she has endured a year from hell after a court battle with singer Katy Perry over her order’s Los Angeles convent — a fight that, she says, has left her nearly paralyzed, penniless and without a home. “I really didn’t like Katy Perry. I’m sure she doesn’t like me,” the 81-year-old nun declared.
Callanan, the only surviving sister of the Order of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also claims that the singer has “blood on her hands.”
This is because on March 9, 2018, Sister Callanan’s best friend, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, 89, collapsed and died in a Los Angeles court as they prepared to face the star’s legal team yet again.
Holtzman’s last words: “Katy Perry. Please stop.”
Callanan said she needs daily help after an emergency spine operation.
“I would have been a paraplegic and in a wheelchair for the rest of my life if [doctors] hadn’t operated,” the nun said. “I now need physical, occupational and speech therapy.”
She is now in a rehab center and the source said it’s unknown where she will eventually live.
“The Archdiocese doesn’t understand what they have done to these women, [or] just how devastated [the nuns] were when they kicked them out and really destroyed their community,” said the source.
