Jocelyn Wildenstein, also known as Catwoman has been charged with clawing her fashion designer boyfriend in the face. The 71-year-old New Yorker is accused of slashing Lloyd Klein with a pair of scissors during an argument. Following the arrest, a mugshot of the socialite has now been released. (see below)
Wildenstein, 76, allegedly flew into a “violent rage” and scratched the face of her boyfriend while they were dining in their apartment in the Trump World Tower on 1st Avenue.
The incident was said to have occurred over dinner where Lloyd Klein, 49 was using his laptop over dinner.
“They had a relaxing dinner, everything was normal then Jocelyn suddenly got angry as she often does,” a source close to the couple has said.
“Lloyd was using his laptop and evidently not paying her enough attention. So she screamed at him to get off the computer then picked up a lit candle and threw the hot wax all over him.”
He then asked her to calm down but Jocelyn allegedly threatened to kill him.
“She then went at his face with her nails, which are real and very sharp, before finally grabbing some scissors and stabbing them twice into his chest.”
To protect himself, Klein was forced to lock Wildenstein inside a closet to prevent another attack.
The Swiss-born Wildenstein has spent millions of dollars on cosmetic surgeries to please her cat-loving, art-dealing husband, Alec Wildenstein, who died in 2008.
