LOS ANGELES - A nun involved in a lawsuit with pop star Katy Perry over the sale of a convent in Los Angeles died after collapsing during a court appearance.

Archbishop Jose H. Gomez says Sister Catherine Rose Holzman died Friday. She was 89.

Hours before her death, Holzman spoke to KTTV , speaking out against a judge's ruling that cleared the way for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to sell a convent in the Los Feliz neighbourhood to Perry.

The singer sought to buy the 8-acre (32,375-square-meter) property and its Roman-villa style buildings for $14.5 million.

The nuns had tried to sell the convent to a local restaurateur to turn into a boutique hotel, but a judge ruled in 2016 that the sale was invalid.
