As she appears in the text:

“Madonna and Jean-Michel had a brief relationship in 1982, though he had a girlfriend at the time. The girlfriend, Suzanne Mallouk, found out and violently confronted Madonna at a club, inspiring Jean-Michel’s painting Catfight, which featured Madonna’s name crossed out. When the two split for good, Jean-Michel made Madonna return the paintings he’d given her, painting them solid black.”
