She was nicknamed “Catwoman” because of her feline traits – but she always denied having plastic surgery.
And Jocelyn Wildenstein, 82, and her design fiancé Lloyd Klein, 55, still look loved on their heavily filtered shots on Instagram after a tough 18-year romance.
The couple has been engaged since 2017 when Lloyd donated a 32-carat diamond ring to New York Society that is reportedly “worth millions”.
Partners: ‘Catwoman’ Jocelyn Wildenstein, 82, and fiancé Lloyd Klein, 55, appear as loved ones on VERY filtered Instagram footage after an 18-year romance
Oath: The couple has been engaged since 2017 when Lloyd donated a 32-carat diamond ring to New York society that is reportedly “worth millions” but never married
They were supposed to get married in 2018, but it is only two years after she was arrested because she allegedly cut her boyfriend’s chest with scissors.
Jocelyn is accused of hitting her partner Lloyd at around 1.30am before cutting off his breasts at her apartment at Trump World Tower in New York City.
Lloyd said he was forced to push her into the closet until police arrived.

The accusations were later dismissed and Jocelyn said, ‘In life we throw our frustrations at the ones we love the most, and I directed mine towards Lloyd.
‘I let my frustration turn to anger, and that was wrong. I saw the red one and turned into an obsessed woman. I pounced like an angry cat.
‘The fight with Lloyd was when I hit rock bottom. I felt like I had reached the end of the line and just snapped.
A year later, Jocelyn and Lloyd made headlines for dismissing allegations of a late-night fight.
They insisted they had been injured in passionate sex after a bourguignon beef dish exploded.

Neighbors heard screams from their apartment, and police arrested both of them after they arrived at 1 a.m. and found a broken casserole dish on the kitchen floor, bruises on Wildenstein’s neck and arms and a cut on Klein’s forehead.
Lloyd, born in Canada, said he ran to the shower to wash hot soup off his feet, where he says he slipped and fell, getting a small cut on his forehead.
Wildenstein joined him in the bathroom to see if he was okay, but soon the couple moved into the bedroom and started having sex.
They told DailyMail.com that neighbors heard their noisy lovemaking and mistakenly concluded that Wildenstein had been attacked.
‘I burned my legs when the pot exploded and went to the shower to pour water over it,’ Klein said.
‘I must have made a lot of noise, I was in a panic, but Jocelyn went into the bathroom to see I was fine and one thing led to another.
‘I slipped and cut my forehead because everything was very wet, but it wasn’t terrible, a small cut.
‘We went to the bedroom and had great, passionate sex. Neighbors probably heard all that and assumed that someone was being killed.
‘A few minutes later, security entered the apartment uninvited and walked straight into our bedroom.

‘I can see why it looked like a fight with food on the floor and some blood – but I can assure you it wasn’t that, 100 percent.’
Wildenstein, a mother of three, insisted that the bruises on her neck and arms mentioned in the criminal report were completely innocent.
‘Lloyd can be very passionate, he can be a little rude,’ she laughed. ‘It’s something I enjoy otherwise I wouldn’t be with him all this time.
‘None of this would have happened if the cooking pot hadn’t exploded. I’ve never seen anything like it. He got burned and when I went to help him we took a shower together.
‘Security did not want to hear any explanations. They came to their own conclusion. It was a terrible time. ‘
First love: Jocelyn’s ex-husband, art dealer Alex Wildenstein, pictured in 2000, a year after her divorce – died in 2008.
Police arrived a few minutes later and the couple were transferred to various hospitals in Manhattan before they were sentenced to prison for a misdemeanor attack.
The accusations were dropped and they were reconciled.
Wildenstein gained fame in the 1990s during a high-profile divorce from art dealer Alec Wildenstein, receiving over $ 2 billion from her divorced husband.
Lloyd denied reports that Jocelyn had surgery.
He said: ‘I don’t understand the whole press and the cat woman thing, because Jocelyn always looked like that.
‘She never did anything to change her face. I have 16-year-old paintings that look exactly the same as they do today. ‘
In 2018, Jocelyn filed for bankruptcy, claiming she had no savings or shares after wasting her $ 2.5 billion divorce settlement.
A woman who once bought a Capuchin monkey as a pet found herself without current or savings accounts, without a pension fund or pension plans and without investing according to her file.
The submission also cites a $ 900 check that Wildestein receives from social security each month as the only source of income.

In January 2019, Lloyd revealed his new face exclusively for DailyMailTV after undergoing a facial rejuvenation procedure after his long battle with cancer.
Klein was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2013. An orange-sized tumor was removed from his armpit and he underwent three rounds of exhausting chemotherapy.
In 2017, he was told that the cancer had spread to his spine and liver and that he had only six months to live. But Klein told DailyMailTV 2018 that he is in remission.
He said: ‘I knew in that moment that I needed to focus on what was most important in my life – and that was Jocelyn. It was so important for me to recognize that commitment by making it my wife.
‘She was always with me, during our ups and downs. I can’t imagine living a single day of my life without her. ‘
The French fashion designer said that intensive chemotherapy destroyed his face, so he turned to Wildenstein, his 15-year-old girlfriend, to help him find a way to restore his face.
Klein, who designed the clothes for Nicki Minaj, Pink and Joan Collins, told DailyMailTV: ‘I am happy, very pleased with the procedure. It is revolutionary.
‘You go in and do the procedure, 15-20 minutes and then you go home. As the days go by you will see the results. That’s amazing. ‘
