ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Billionaire Thomas Golisano says an interior decorator overcharged him by more than $300,000 when she renovated his yacht.

The Democrat and Chronicle reports the former Buffalo Sabres owner and three-time candidate for New York governor testified Monday in a civil trial in Rochester. He maintains the decorator had agreed to provide furnishings at wholesale cost.

His wife, former tennis star Monica Seles, testified she grew concerned about costs during a cruise in 2014 when there were so many pillows she couldn’t sit on a couch.

Golisano contends the decorator overcharged by more than $300,000 on an $845,000 tab. The decorator claims he was given the same deal she gave him on his suburban Rochester home.

Golisano, founder of a Rochester-based payroll services company, has his main residence in Florida.
