Elon Musk’s Twitter was sued by a private jet provider for refusing to pay for two flights taken by former chief marketing officer Leslie Berland as Musk was preparing to close his $44 billion acquisition of the social media platform.

Private Jet Services Group LLC claims it’s owed $197,725 for Berland’s Oct. 26 flight from Teterboro, New Jersey, to San Francisco and a return flight the following day — the same day Musk closed the deal to buy Twitter. Berland was fired in early November, along with about half the workforce at the company.
