A Todt Hill mansion in one of Staten Island’s wealthiest neighborhoods is at the center of a divorce that could become the borough’s most costly split.

The couple, Dean and Robyn Billing, are going through a contested breakup that is shaping up to be “a nasty, contentious” process, as Robyn Billing’s lawyer told the New York Post, with both parties are disputing how assets should be divided.

Dean Billing is accused of being behind on bill payments and their children’s tuition, according to his soon-to-be ex-wife. She claims he spends his money on frequent trips to Miami, other women and renting yachts.

Dean Billing’s attorney rebuffed the accusations telling the Post that “one of the most frustrating aspects of New York divorce law is how easy a disgruntled spouse can make false claims in preliminary litigation papers, for dramatic effect.”

Divorce is a common impetuous for selling off real estate and the Billings first listed their house at 125 Benedict Road for $6.3 million last year after Robyn filed for divorce. The listing was pulled as their legal battle dragged on. The couple bought the seven-story home in 2012. [NYP]Erin Hudson
