Amid her bankruptcy proceedings, Jocelyn Wildenstein is being accused of losing $250,000 worth of jewelry.
The Blast reports that Wildenstein, a k a Catwoman, and her boyfriend, Lloyd Klein, put a down payment of $62,000 on a five-piece emerald and diamond jewelry set at Regal Jewelry and Gift Shop in 2017.
But a check allegedly bounced, according to the site, and now Wildenstein says she doesn’t know where the baubles are.
The website writes, “Wildenstein’s lawyer said during a recent court hearing that the person who would know about the jewelry is Klein.”
The matter of the missing gems came to light during hearings about Wildenstein’s Chapter 11 claim, which she filed in May.
The one-time wife of late billionaire Alec Wildenstein claims that she now lives on just $900 a month in Social Security income.
She said in court, “I often turn to friends and family in order to pay my ongoing expenses.”
However, Wildenstein also owns three adjoining apartments in the Trump World Tower, worth some $11.75 million.
Then again, she owes $4.6 million on the homes, which are in foreclosure.
