Jocelyn Wildenstein, 76, holds the record for the highest ever divorce settlement in history. When she split from her billionaire husband of 21 years, Alec Wildenstein in 1999, she was awarded $2.5billion and $100million every year for 13 years. Plastic surgery has left her looking not-so-human and has led to her being nicknamed ‘cat woman’.
She was in the news this week for domestic violence. She attacked her Canadian-born fashion designer boyfriend of 13 years, Lloyd Klein, 49, because he was on his laptop and wasn’t paying her attention. She allegedly gouged him in the face with her nails and stabbed his chest with a pair of scissors.
At the time of her divorce, Alec said of her numerous cosmetic procedures:
‘She was crazy. I would always find out last. She was thinking that she could fix her face like a piece of furniture. Skin does not work that way. But she wouldn’t listen,’ said Alec at the time.
He married Liouba Stoupakova in 2000 and passed away in 2008 of prostate cancer.
