    His trying to breed discord among the two friends.

    A person has an intention to turn two friends into enemies. My Russia-English dictionary suggests "breed/sow discord".

    His trying to breed discord among the two friends.

    Is it natural? What other expressions would you use to express the idea?

    Hello, Gene:

    Raul and Mona are a couple. Betty secretly loves Raul, so she is doing everything possible to drive a wedge between Raul and Mona.

    Best wishes
