California nuns: selling convent to Katy Perry would ‘violate our religious vows’

July 21, 2015

The nuns opposing Katy Perry’s attempts to buy a convent in California have spoken out against the plans.

As previously reported, Perry is in talks to purchase the property, agreeing to pay $14.5 million for the property.

One of the nuns against Perry’s purchase, Sister Rita Callahan has previously hinted that she was not in favour of Perry moving into the property due to her background, stating: “Well, I found Katy Perry and I found her videos and… if it’s all right to say, I wasn’t happy with any of it.”

Now, legal documents filed on Friday (July 17), show that the nuns claim that selling the convent to Perry would force them to “violate our canonical vows” to the Catholic Church.

It is also revealed that the star visited the convent recently, performing ‘Oh Happy Day’ and proceeding to show the nuns her Jesus tattoo in an attempt to impress.
