 The ex-mistress of Baron de Rothschild and their illegitimate daughter have filed a $6 million lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court against the condo board of their luxury Turtle Bay home.

In 2006, the mother-and-daughter — Parisian antique dealer Ariane Dandois and Ondine de Rothschild — purchased two penthouse apartments for a total of $12.9 million at 310 East 53rd Street. They then spent another $5 million to combine and renovate the units, which totaled 5,500 square feet, according to the New York Daily News.

However, their plans to put trees, planters and gravel across their 3,500-square-foot outdoor space were blocked by condo board president David Goss.

“[The condo board] engaged in a blatant campaign to harass, discriminate against and single out [the plaintiffs] by unreasonably refusing to approve its landscaping plans for many years,” the lawsuit said.

Goss, head of UOB Global Capital, did not return the Daily News’ calls for comment. [NYDN]Christopher Cameron
