Katy Perry traveled to the Vatican and paid tribute to the Pope on Saturday morning. Accompanying her was her special beau, just days after she had declared that she was “spoken for.”
Perry was joined by her friend Orlando Bloom on her special holy day at the Vatican City, which she attended during the “United to Cure” international conference.
Perry, 33, and Bloom, 41, both donned black outfits as they greeted the Bishop of Rome amidst crowds of people vying to get inside the Paul VI Hall, according to Fox News.
During the “United to Cure” ceremony, media captured Perry’s hand resting on Bloom’s leg. Perry made sure to record the special outing by posting videos and pictures on social media.
“Happy Saturday, everyone,” she shared on Instagram. “I’m here in Rome at the Vatican about to speak on meditation,” she wrote.
Her visit to the Vatican comes at a surprise to some, following the controversy surrounding her desire to purchase a convent in the Los Angeles area that has been fiercely opposed by the nunnery currently owning the property.
In that controversy, who nuns who owned the property – one of them is now deceased – refused to sell the property to Perry, although she had already purchased it from a third party for $14.5 million. The convent is located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles.
That battle, between Perry and the nuns, began in 2015 and was embroiled in legal troubles. One of the nuns passed away recently after she collapsed in court.
One of the sisters, Rita Callahan, who vowed to fight to the end to save their convent from purchase, spoke about the battle she was fighting with Perry, saying, “They’ll have to kill me first if they want to keep me quiet. … I am asking Pope Francis to intercede.”
