The sprawling convent which is situated on an eight acre compound has been vacant since 2011 and was sold to the singer by Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez for $14.5 million.

However, before Perry is handed the keys to the property, she has to contend with the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary- Rose and Callanan, who aren’t pleased with her character and one of her videos.

I was particularly concerned about the video The Dark Horse,’ Callanan told NBC’s “Today” show on Monday, June 29, 2015.

There are talks that Perry also has plans to use the property to care for her mother and grandmother.
