It seems that Hillary Clinton could actually be the real Grim Reaper considering how many people around her suffer sudden and often unexplained deaths, especially those not necessarily on her good side. Some say it’s a coincidence, but one has to wonder how many people connected to you in a number of ways have to die before it’s questioned.
For Hillary, that time may not come before her health catches up with her, but could for her best friend in Hollywood. This big pop star has been caught up in the middle of a big court battle that’s now complicated by the tragedy of who just dropped dead in the courtroom.
Liberals love pop singer Katy Perry, but conservatives have a much different opinion about her after she sealed her fate by inserting politics into her performances and public appearances. The former Christian singer has long since traded in her religious roots for a career in making a big name off of sexually suggestive performances and appearance.
This not-so-female empowerment of using your sexuality to sell your music somehow drew her to pantsuit phenom Hillary Clinton. The two have since formed a tight bond they love to put on public display, making Hillary seem hip and Perry touting her political prowess. It’s even gone as far as Perry naming a shoe in her new footwear line after the failed female political candidate.
All that rather grotesque girl crush aside, Perry has found herself in a place familiar to Clinton and that’s in the courtroom for a reason not related to their friendship. However, another commonality has come of it, which is that an innocent person has suddenly dropped dead who was involved in the embattled ordeal.
“Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, one of the nuns who was involved in the 8-acre convent lawsuit filed by Katy Perry, has died after collapsing in court on Friday,” Fox News reported. According to TMZ, Holzman, 89, was in court for a post-judgment hearing that was related to Perry’s convent case when she collapsed.
Fox News explains the case that led to Holzman’s unexpected death:
The controversial estate case dates back to 2015 when Perry sought to purchase the property from Holzman and another nun for $14.5 million in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. The property included a Roman-villa style building with an attached convent that had closed in 2011, Variety reported.
But the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer wasn’t the only person interested in the unique, hill-top property.
Businesswoman Dana Hollister, who according to the Los Angeles Times, was known for purchasing property in the Silver Lake area next door since the 1990s, allegedly interfered with the transaction by attempting to preemptively purchase the house from two nuns.
Perry and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles fought back and sued Hollister for interfering with the property deal. A jury later found Hollister guilty of interference and she was ordered to pay a total of $3.47 million to the archdiocese and $1.57 million to Perry as compensation for the subsequent court fees.
The nuns who once lived on the convent reportedly opposed selling to Perry and tried instead to sell to Hollister. But a judge nullified the sale earlier this year and ruled that the archdiocese had the right to sell the property, not the nuns, Variety reported.
Holzman, who along with the other nuns had sided with Hollister, hoping that she could save them by buying the property. They felt the purchaser was innocent in this case and that the star was taking it too far. The now deceased nun had just pleaded with the singer in court before she died there, saying “And to Katy Perry, please stop. It’s not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people.”
While Hillary Clinton had nothing to do with this nun’s death, the tragic situation goes to show that people really can become those who they surround themselves with. It’s sad that Holzman passed this way, even if it was her time to go see the God she had dedicated her life to serving. Nobody should die in a courtroom who was innocently caught in the middle of a bitter battle. At least for this nun, she died defending what she felt was right in this final fight in her life.
