A Soho penthouse owned by celebrity photographer Ken Nahoum is heading for bankruptcy auction.

The four-bedroom, 7,000-square-foot condominium at 95 Greene Street was initially listed for sale with a $20 million price tag in October through Luxury Property Group’s Joseph Ash and Douglas Elliman’s Ariel Cohen, Ash told The Real Deal. Matthew Bordwin of Keen-Summit Capital Partners is handling the auction.

The auction is scheduled for April 13 and has a minimum bid of $13.25 million.

The penthouse is a combination of three apartments. Nahoum, who has photographed celebrities such as Robert De Niro and Cher and his ex-girlfriend and model Basia Milewicz, bought the first unit in 1999 and added the others three years later.

The couple split up in 2012 and started fighting over the penthouse’ ownership. In 2015, Nahoum sued Milewicz for allegedly failing to honor a deal to sell her stake in the unit.

The apartment feature 36-foot-tall ceilings and 24-foot-tall windows in the living room, a jacuzzi and outdoor terraces spanning 3,500 square feet.
