Lady Gaga’s Former Assistant Sues! Ordered Around, Unpaid Overtime
Lawsuit alert! First reported by TMZ, Lady Gaga's former assistant, Jennifer O'Neill, claims she was ordered around by the out-there singer, to do slave-like things like having a towel promptly ready for her after a shower.
The assistant, who worked for the singer for 13 months, claims she worked 7,168 hours of overtime without pay, and had to be there for Gaga in "stadiums, private jets, fine hotel suites, yachts, ferries, trains and tour buses."
While Jennifer isn't bringing Gaga to court directly, she's suing Mermaid Touring Company, who the singer uses for her concerts, for $380,000 — a price that represents her "thousands of unpaid overtime hours."
While this seems like quite the scandal, TMZ reports that Gaga's rep says the suit is "completely without merit."
