An aging socialite known as “Catwoman,” who is renowned for her plastic surgery, was arrested this week after an apparent fight with her boyfriend at her Trump World Tower apartment in New York City that left him scratched and bloodied.
Jocelyn Wildenstein, age 71 or 76 depending on where you look and whom you believe, was accused of slashing her designer boyfriend Lloyd Klein, 49, across the chest with scissors after a late night fight.
It is alleged that Wildenstein also threw hot wax on Klein and scratched his face with her nails.
Wildenstein was arraigned Wednesday for a felony assault charge — or should we say feline-y assault?
Here was her mugshot:
And here was her court face:
Days after the assault charge, video obtained by the Daily Mail shows Wildenstein battering her boyfriend with a tray in a separate incident.
She can be heard yelling in a French accent, “I hate you, your mother is a bitch,” among other things, before following Klein down an unlit hallway with a tray.
Klein can be heard replying, “I don’t touch you, you don’t touch me, you stop it.”
The pair have been together for 13 years, and friends say Wildenstein is no stranger to big blowups.
“This sort of behavior is not exactly rare,” one unnamed associate told the Daily Mail. “Jocelyn’s temper is almost as notorious as her love of plastic surgery. You have to admire Lloyd’s restraint, but he would never hit a woman.”
Klein would tell the New York Post that the most recent situation was “very disturbing.” He declined to say what the argument was about but called it “very intimate, very private.”
