It seems that Taylor Swift is not the only person feuding with Katy Perry these days.

The singer is currently engaged in a legal battle with a group of nuns.

The pop superstar is about to head to court against the sisters at Immaculate Heart of Mary after the singer purchased the convent they live at for $14.5million.

The problem with the sale is that Perry bought the Los Feliz, California, property from Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez, and the nuns are claiming they had already accepted an offer for the estate for $1million more from a restaurateur.

Feud: Katy Perry (above in May at the Met Gala) is about to head to court against the sisters at Immaculate Heart of MaryBig spender: Perry paid $14.5million cash for the property (above) however restaurateur Dana Hollister already bought the property two weeks ago for $1million morePerry had met the sisters at the property, pictured, in May and sung 'Oh Happy Day' for them

The Los Angeles Times reports that the five remaining sisters at the convent sold the property for $15.5million to restaurateur Dana Hollister just two weeks ago.

They then learned that Gomez had sold the property to Perry, claiming that the sisters had no rights to the estate.

Perry had previously met with the sisters – who range in age from 77 to 88 – at the property in May, dressing conservatively and giving an impromptu performance of the gospel hymn ‘Oh Happy Day

She also revealed that ‘she wanted to live on the property with her mother and grandmother, sit in the meditation garden, sip green tea and find herself.’ 

The performance failed to win the women over though, and they decided to sell to Hollister.

Gomez however is saying the nuns had no right to sell, and has signed papers from three of the five remaining inhabitants of the convent giving him the power to decide who gets the property.

Sister Catherine Rose, 86,  and Sister Rita Callanan, 77, are the two holdouts, and both are claiming their fellow sisters signed those papers under duress.

The sisters purchased the convent decades ago after pooling their money, which is why they claim they have the right to sell, and not Gomez.
