Yup, although they seem to still be on good terms.

A new biography was just released in France and mentions Dolph quite a bit, I wonder how different it is from reading Jones' own autobiography...

Grace Jones on Her One Big Regret: ‘If You Give Up Your Power, You Have No One to Blame But Yourself’
https://www.thedailybeast.com/grace-jon ... t-yourself
Viewers expecting a gossipy chronological account of Jones’s career will be disappointed. Her early days as a model, cocaine-fueled days at Studio 54, the evolution of her androgynous image, and details of her romances with the photographer and graphic designer Jean-Paul Goude (who nevertheless makes a cameo appearance) and Dolph Lundgren are passed over. Fans desiring more salacious tidbits should consult Jones’s entertaining memoir, which, with characteristic Jonesian cheek, is titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs.

It was also important for Jones and Fiennes to shoot on film and have access to an environment that gave them meticulous control of the results. Jones explains: “Sophie filmed a number of live performances, but it was frustrating for her because she didn’t have the control of the space, the control of the camera and lighting. She could make it more cinematic and shoot on film. I agreed that we just had to stage our own performances “

Fiennes concurred and added: “We shot on super 16, which is a risk and one of the magazines actually jammed. David Lynch once said to Ralph when he met him that ‘something cosmic happens when you shoot light through celluloid.’ You have the grain; film is more about how we actually see and video is about definition and pixels.”

Fiennes contrasts this approach with Beyoncé’s shows, where “she’s just an image on a screen surrounded by toy soldiers.” Jones retorts, “But now they’re all looking at little screens.”

Even though, like Edith Piaf, Jones appears to regret nothing, she does admit that not accepting the role of Zhora, the snake-charming replicant in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner—that eventually went to Joanna Cassidy—was a mistake (in I’ll Never Write My Memoirs, she maintains that, in the original script, Zhora’s part was considerably larger than what ended up in the finished film).

“Oh, yes. That’s my one regret,” she says. “When I did decide to take it, it was too late. Ridley was pissed off. We still party together and I saw him once when my mother was making rice and beans. In fact, I see him all the time. The actress who took my part broke his heart. I learned a lesson: read the script and then make up your mind. Whatever anyone else says, go with your own instincts. That’s what we say about empowerment: If you give up your power, you have no one to blame but yourself. It was my fault. But I’m trying to think positively.”

‘Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami’ Review: She’s Almost Too Much for One Film
https://www.theintelligencer.com/entert ... 830222.php

Fiennes knows this and doesn’t try to overstuff the film. Rather than cram seven decades’ worth of biographical events into 120 minutes — there’s a glimpse of Andy Warhol but you can forget learning anything new about Dolph Lundgren — Fiennes approaches Jones’ unique position with a clear, unsentimental directness, unburdened with shaping an easy narrative or lazy hagiography, resolutely concerned with the present.
