Eventually, Jocelyn was awarded a $2.5 billion divorce settlement and $100 million each year for 13 years afterward. However, the judge stipulated that she could not use any of her divorce payments for further cosmetic surgery.
Jocelyn Wildenstein, 75, is just as famous for her immense divorce settlement as she is for her looks.
The Swiss-born socialite was awarded $2.5 billion (£1.7 billion) in one of the biggest divorce settlements in history from her former elite art dealer and horse racing husband Alec in the late 1990s.
But the bumper payout wasn't the only thing that got her worldwide press — her penchant for surgery to make her face more "feline," allegedly to please her husband, has been widely reported.
There's more than meets the eye, though. Wildenstein is an accomplished hunter and pilot, and her love for "decoration" led her to meet her long-term boyfriend, French designer Lloyd Klein.
