Jocelyn Wildenstein Net Worth
Jocelyn Wildenstein Net Worth: Jocelyn Wildenstein is a New York socialite who has a net worth of $500 million dollars. Born August 5, 1940 in Lausanne, Switzerland, she is known for her extensive facial surgeries and an extravagant lifestyle consisting of $60,000/year phone bills and annual food and wine costs in excess of $545,000. The disfiguration which has emerged from the series of surgeries, causing Jocelyn to resemble a feline, earned her the nickname Catwoman. Jocelyn married billionaire French businessman Alec Wildenstein when they were both in the their 30s and they later divorced in 1999. Jocelyn claims that Alec loved big cats and that she had the multiple surgeries to please him—that she got exactly what she wanted out of the surgeries and that she felt beautiful when she looked into the mirror. The couple's divorce was highly publicized and was not amicable, as Jocelyn walked in on her husband and a 19-year-old model in her bedroom at the Wildenstein's New York home and he threatened her with a gun. Alec Wildenstein was jailed over the incident. During the divorce proceedings, the judge stipulated that Jocelyn was not to use any alimony payments for further cosmetic surgery. Jocelyn was reportedly awarded $2.5 billion in the divorce settlement as well as $100 million each year for 13 years thereafter.
