Jocelyn Wildenstein, 71, has been arrested for attacking her designer boyfriend Lloyd Klein with her nails and a pair of scissors.


The New York socialite, known for her numerous plastic surgeries, faces both second- and third-degree assault charges, according to the NYPD. She allegedly clawed his face with her nails and cut his chest with scissors during an argument at her Trump World Tower apartment.

“The victim is a 49-year-old male,” reports an NYPD spokesman to People. “Wildenstein is accused of scratching his face with her fingernails and using a pair of scissors to cut him on the upper-right part of his chest.” Wildenstein was taken into custody around 1:12 am on Wednesday morning. “The victim suffered bleeding, however, he refused medical attention at the scene,” the spokesperson continued.

Wildenstein was arraigned on Wednesday and released, but has yet to enter a plea to her charges.

WIldenstein was a notable socialite, but became more widely known in the 80s and 90s when she had repeated plastic surgeries during her marriage to billionaire French art dealer Alec Wildenstein. They split in 1999.

“I don’t think I’ve known her when she wasn’t healing from something,” a friend told Vanity Fair. Known as “catwoman,” Wildenstein gets her inspiration from felines, and has had many eye and face lifts and countless other surgeries. “The lynx has perfect eyes,” said the socialite, but insists her looks are natural. “If I show you pictures of my grandmother,” she says, “what you see is these eyes—cat eyes—and high cheekbones.”
