“Lloyd can be very passionate, he can be a little rough around the edges,” she laughed. “That’s something I enjoy, otherwise I wouldn’t have been with him all this time.”

Rows: Wildenstein and Klein’s 15-year romance seemed to have ended in December 2016 when Jocelyn sank her claws into his face in a now-notorious catfight.
In January 2019, Lloyd revealed her new face exclusively to DailyMailTV after undergoing a facial rejuvenation procedure following a years-long battle with cancer.
Klein was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2013. An orange-sized tumor was removed from his armpit and he underwent three grueling rounds of chemotherapy.
In 2017, she was told the cancer had spread to her spine and liver and she only had six months to live. But Klein told DailyMailTV in 2018 that she was in remission.
He said: ‘I knew at that moment that I had to focus on what is most important in my life, and that is Jocelyn. For me it was very important to recognize her commitment by making her my wife.
“She has always been there for me, through our ups and downs. I can’t imagine living a single day of my life without her.
The French fashion designer said the intense chemotherapy destroyed his face, so he turned to Wildenstein, his girlfriend of 15 years, to help him find a way to restore his face.
Klein, who has designed clothes for Nicki Minaj, Pink and Joan Collins, told DailyMailTV: “I’m happy, very happy with the procedure. It’s revolutionary.
‘You go in and do the procedure, 15-20 minutes and then you go home. With the passage of days you see the results. Is incredible.’
