Jocelyn Wildenstein Arrested For Allegedly Clawing Boyfriend’s Face

Jocelyn Wildenstein Arrested For Allegedly Clawing Boyfriend’s Face

A New York socialite who is infamous for extensive plastic surgery — sometimes derided as “Catwoman” — is facing assault charges this week after allegedly clawing her boyfriend’s face and attacking him with a pair of scissors, PEOPLE confirms.

Jocelyn Wildenstein, 71, is facing both a second- and third-degree assault charge for allegedly attacking her boyfriend during an argument early Wednesday at her Trump World Tower apartment, a New York Police Department spokesman tells PEOPLE.

“The victim is a 49-year-old male … 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,” the spokesman tells PEOPLE, noting that authorities took Wildenstein into custody around 1:12 a.m. that day.

“The victim suffered bleeding,” the spokesman says. “However, he refused medical attention at the scene.”

Wildenstein allegedly slashed the man’s chest with the scissors, “causing several red marks and substantial pain,” according to police.

She was arraigned on Wednesday and released on her own recognizance. It appears she has not entered a plea to her charges.

Wildenstein, already a noted socialite, became more widely known for her numerous plastic surgeries, which she began having during a 20-year marriage to billionaire French art dealer Alec Wildenstein, according to a 1998 story on the couple in Vanity Fair.

Jocelyn is reportedly inspired by the look of large felines and has undergone eye-lifts, face-lifts and more. A friend told Vanity Fair at the time, “I don’t think I’ve known her when she wasn’t healing from something.”

Jocelyn’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE.
