Sister Rita Callanan, a member of the Order of the Most Holy and Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, has spoken out against Katy Perry following their extended legal battle over the sale of Callanan's former convent.
"I really didn't like Katy Perry. I'm sure she doesn't like me," Callanan told the New York Post in an interview published June 8. She also stated that she believes Perry has "blood on her hands" following the sudden death of another sister of the community.
Last year, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, Callanan's best friend, suddenly collapsed and died in a Los Angeles courtroom. She was 89. Her final words were a plea to Perry to "please stop" the court case.
In 2015, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles approved the sale of the convent to Perry, nee Katheryn Hudson. The sisters have protested, saying they did not want the "Bon Appetit" singer to buy their house, and that the archdiocese did not have the rights to sell their property.
