'Catwoman' Jocelyn Wildenstein Accused of Attacking Boyfriend With Scissors
The socialite, whose name is synonymous with plastic surgery, was arraigned Wednesday in a Manhattan courtroom.
A New York City socialite whose name has become synonymous with cosmetic surgery found herself in a not-so-chic position Wednesday after cops say she assaulted her much younger boyfriend.
Jocelyn Wildenstein, 71, was reportedly arrested after cops say she slashed her boyfriend, Lloyd Klein, 49, with scissors in her Manhattan apartment.
Police were called to the Trump World Tower early Wednesday, where they told the New York Post that Klein's chest was cut with scissors.
Police reportedly said Wildenstein, known as 'Catwoman,' also scratched Klein's face with her fingernails.
Wildenstein's attorney, Alan Kachalsky, told The Post's Page Six that Klein suffered no stab wounds.
Reached for comment by InsideEdition.com, Kachalsky stressed that there are two sides to every story.
"He says he locked her in the closet because she was in a rage," the Westchester County-based lawyer said. "Consider the possibiluity that she was in the closet to get away from him."
Kachalsky went on to call the descriptions of Klein's wounds "vastly overrated."
Wildenstein was arraigned Wednesday on felony and misdemeanor assault charges in Manhattan Criminal Court. A judge freed her without bail.
The socialite became well known in the 1990s after widespread reports that she spent millions on plastic surgeries, some in an effort to make her features appear more cat-like.
Her $2.5 billion divorce from art-dealing husband Alec Wildenstein got her feline face on the cover of gossip rags and also won her the unflattering nickname "Bride of Wildenstein."
