“Queen” Gaga’s ugly battle with ex assistant
Lady Gaga‘s former personal assistant, Jennifer O’Neill, has taken the singer to court over $393,000 in unpaid overtime she claims she’s owed.
And Lady Gaga is in a frothing fury about it.
According to court records obtained by the New York Post, during the testimony Gaga referred to O’Neill as a “witch,” “a disgusting human being,” and a “f–king hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn.”
“She’s just – she thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe,” Gaga ranted under oath. “And, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day.”
Jennifer claims she’s owed 7,168 hours of overtime. But Gaga argues that none of her employees get overtime, and that Jennifer “knew exactly what she was getting into.” She also asserts that the woman was a terrible personal assistant who slept until noon and didn’t do the work required of her.
It “was essentially a favor, and Jennifer was majorly unqualified for it,” she explains. “I expect there to be a certain level of, like, you know, knowledge and academia about, like, your job.”
Queen of the universe! Academia!
I. LOVE. IT.
I wonder if those arguments would work on my kids if they sued me for unpaid pocket money?
