A Saudi prince says he gave back the keys last year to a Trump Park Avenue LLC-owned penthouse and asked a judge to toss out a lawsuit seeking almost $2 million in unpaid rent.

The unit of President Donald Trump’s company sued Faisal bin Abdul Majeed al-Saud in February, claiming he leased the Manhattan unit in 2013, but stopped paying rent in about January 2017. The Trump Organization says the prince agreed in June 2014 to extend the lease through June 2019, according to the complaint filed in New York State Supreme Court.
