Who is Alec Wildenstein?

Alec Nathan Wildenstein was born on 5 August 1940. He is an American billionaire art dealer, breeder, businessman, and racehorse owner. Alec Wildenstein was born and raised in New York, where his family operated an arts business. His great-grandfather established an art business in 1875, and his father, Daniel Wildenstein, was a scholar whose dominant personality and career overshadowed Alec’s achievements.

His father did not believe that his sons needed a university education to work in the already-established business. His father loved racehorses, which his son inherited. After Alec’s father died in 2001, Alec inherited half of his entire business empire worth $10 billion, which people believed to be the world’s most extensive collection of artwork.

Jocelyn’s Finances and Surgeries

Jocelyn Wildenstein had had several cosmetic surgeries to enhance her looks. One of the surgeries she underwent made her have a catlike appearance, which caused a lot of news outlets to refer to her as “The Lion Queen,” “The Bride of Wildenstein,” and “Catwoman.” However, Jocelyn denied going through surgery.

Fans know Jocelyn for being extravagant with money, and there was a time she calculated her yearly wine and food cost to be $547k and yearly telephone bills to be $60k. After Jocelyn and her ex-husband Alec finalized their divorce, he paid her $2.5 billion as a divorce settlement and $100 million annually for thirteen years.

Thankfully, the judge warned Jocelyn not to use any of the money for other cosmetic surgeries. After her divorce, she sold their home for $13 million to a real estate developer, Janna Bullock. However, she filed for bankruptcy in 2018.

Net Worth

Jocelyn Wildenstein is a famous fashion icon and socialite with a net worth of $500 million. Fans refer to her as the ‘catwoman’ due to the many cosmetic surgeries she has undergone. She was born to wealthy parents in 1940, although she was also a trained pilot and skilled hunter. Her love for animal hunting connected her with her billionaire husband. When her husband’s father died in 2001, his father left him an inheritance of his artwork company which some sources estimated to be $10 billion.


Jocelyn Wildenstein is a unique woman who has weird mindsets. We do not know if inferiority complex was why she had to do so many cosmetic surgeries. However, different sources confirmed that Jocelyn wanted a particular look, especially the catlike face, which became a case of plastic surgery gone wrong. She went through this surgery to impress her husband Alec, who loved cats, but the cosmetic surgery didn’t even keep the man.

He. He still cheated on her with a young Russian girl. Also, she is an extravagant spender who relied on her divorce settlement to enjoy life without planning her career. We, however, want our readers to know that while it is okay for them to want to change their looks, etc., it should not be because they are trying to impress a partner, but let it be because they want it.
