Billionaire George Soros’ eldest son, Robert, is going through an increasingly messy divorce after he cheated on his wife, Melissa Robin Schiff, with model and “naked artist” Meredith Ostrom.

Robert, deputy chairman and president of the $28 billion Soros Fund Management, filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years in Manhattan Supreme Court in May.

But sources tell us that Schiff is arguing their prenup is “ambiguous” in order to go after potentially billions of dollars of Robert’s personal wealth.

One source told Page Six: “One of the reasons Robert filed for divorce was that he was already seeing Meredith well before their marriage ended.

“The current battle is over their old and archaic prenup. Many of the provisions in it appear to be ambiguous. Melissa believes she can go after a large portion of his wealth, which could extend to billions of dollars.”

Robert married photographer and filmmaker Schiff at Temple Emanu-El in New York in 1992. The estranged couple also owns a $13 million West 11th Street townhouse, a Rhinebeck country home called Enterprise Farm and a $9 million Martha’s Vineyard waterfront cottage. Robert and Melissa have supported causes including reproductive rights, Democratic politics and the arts.
