And now during another court hearing on the ongoing battle, Sister Catherine Rose collapsed and died just hours after begging "Katy Perry please stop" to an LA news channel.

A nun involved in a lawsuit against singer Katy Perry over a convent Perry wishes to purchase collapsed and died in a California courtroom on Friday, March 9, Newsweek reported.

However, that sale was blocked by a judge in 2016, who claimed that the proposed deal was invalid, thereby leaving Katy with the opportunity to purchase the property.

Before Friday's incident, Sisters Holzman and Rita Callanan spoke with Fox 11 about the ongoing case. "It's not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people", she told KTTV cameras.

In an interview with The Los Angeles Times in 2015, Callanan said that the nuns were against the sale because they didn't approve of the singer's image.

Katy Perry scooped $4.5 million in a legal battle against two nuns that were fighting back against the decision.

By the time Aaron Thompson got the Bulldogs on the board with 14:32 to go in the half, four different Wildcats had scored. Although the contest ended up as a 10-point game, overtime was just as close as the two regulation periods had been.

At the centre of the legal dispute is the property Sr Holzman and other members of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary had once lived in.

The nuns chose to sell the property to a local restaurant owner called Dana Hollister instead but crucially failed to secure the approval of their Archdiocese before going through with the proceedings.

Michael Geibelson, the lawyer for the restaurateur and entrepreneur, insisted at the time that his client thought she had legal rights to sign a contract for the property and was not intentionally trying to stop the sale to Perry. Apparently, the Immaculate Heart's Sister Rita Callahan was less than thrilled with lyrics such as "let you put your hands on me in my skintight jeans" from Perry's smash hit, "Teenage Dream".

The view from the hilltop former convent that won Katy Perry's heart and her $14.5 million bid. Shortly before her death, she said, "We asked [Hollister] to save us, to buy the property".

He said: 'Sister Catherine Rose served the Church with dedication and love for many years and today we remember her life with gratitude'.
