Tiger 21, the world’s most exclusive private millionaire’s club, is suing Halstead Property broker Dorothy Somekh for allegedly infiltrating the secretive organization to find a buyer for a pricey Upper East Side property.

Somekh allegedly obtained the club’s notoriously secret member list in an effort to sell the $45 million townhouse at 51 East 73rd Street that was once home to movie star-turned-princess Grace Kelly and later, singer Harry Belafonte, the New York Daily News reported. The stomping ground of the world’s wealthiest entrepreneurs, who must have a minimum of $10 million in investable assets to join, the club claims Somekh pressured an employee of Tiger 21 to supply the list and then spammed them with advertisements for the property.

The five-story home, which came off the market in April, boasts a spread of over 12,000 square feet and is currently leased as six residential apartments and 12 professional offices that will be delivered vacant, according to the most recent details on StreetEasy. It is “ideal for a private residence,” according to that former listing.

A spokesperson for Halstead was not immediately available for comment to the Daily News. [NYDN]Julie Strickland
