Breaking up is hard to do, but it’s harder still with millions of dollars in Soho penthouses at stake.

Celebrity photographer Ken Nahoum is suing his ex, cover girl Basia Milewicz, accusing her of failing to honor an agreement to sell her portion of their deluxe triplex penthouse within two years of their breakup.

The 8,200-square-foot apartment in question was combined from three penthouse units at 95 Greene Street in Soho.

It features an 85-foot-long living room and was once featured on Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing” despite the fact that it wasn’t for sale

Milewicz purchased the 1,231-square-foot PH-B in the building in 1999 for $1.4 million. Nahoum then bought PH-A and PH-E. The couple consolidated all three into a single 12-room unit. They listed the unit in 2011 for $25 million after being sued by the condo board for missed fees, but failed to find a buyer, the New York Post reported.

The couple also owned a fourth penthouse in the building, PH-C, which they sold in 2012 for $3.2 million.

In the suit, Nahoum says he thinks he can get $17 million for the combined unit. But if Milewicz refuses to sell, he said he would lose $10 million. [NYP]Ariel Stulberg
