Nuns Respond to Katy Perry's Bid to Buy Historic Convent

The most recent feud in Hollywood is pitting pop superstar Katy Perry against a group of Los Angeles-area nuns.

The "I Kissed a Girl" singer has been in talks to buy the property that was once a convent to the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

While Perry has made a $14.5 million deal with Archbishop Jose Gomez to turn the convent into her new home, the sisters aren't alright with Perry buying the property.

ET spoke with the last living nuns, who claim that the land is theirs to sell, and have already taken $15.5 million from local restauranteur Dana Hollister.

"The archbishop told us we would be taken care of the rest of our lives till the last sister dies," Sister Katherine Rose, who has called the convent in question home for over two and a half decades.

The archbishop, however, has argued that the sisters had no right to sell the property to Hollister.

The Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary have stressed that it is Hollister who has their best interests at heart.

"When you have a resource like this.. it needs to find its way to be a part of the modern world and then it gets to live forever. and that's what they want," Hollister explained.

As for Perry, the nuns explained that, although she's "a very nice," "lovely" person, they didn't feel she was the right person to maintain the legacy of the convent.

"After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and our older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit," explained Sister Katherine.

Ultimately, the fate of the convent and who will be allowed to purchase the land is still up in air, and will be left to the courts to decide.
