Lady Gaga hits back at former assistant

Sep 15 2013, 2:24pm CDT | by Bang Showbiz

Lady Gaga claims she is "completely aghast" at her former assistant's lawsuit against her.

The 'Applause' hitmaker is being sued by her ex-best friend Jennifer O'Neill, who claims the singer owes her $380,000 in overtime payments because she had to spend 24 hours a day with her and share the same bed during 'The Monster Ball' tour in 2010.

The 27-year-old star has submitted a 200-page witness statement, obtained by the Mail on Sunday newspaper, to give her side of the story, in which she explains that she rewards her hardworking staff with perks rather than overtime pay.

She said: "I am quite wonderful to everyone that works for me. I am going to tell you exactly what ******* happened, so that the judge can read on this transcript exactly what's going on, which is my ex-best friend is a ******* hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn. The job was essentially a favor, and Jennifer was majorly unqualified for it."

Lady Gaga also claims that personal assistants are rarely paid overtime in the entertainment industry.

Jennifer previously testified that she felt it was a "required" part of her job to sleep with her employer.

She said: "I was by her side virtually 24 hours a day, seven days a week. That includes sleeping in the same bed with her. Because she did not sleep alone."

She added: "Unlike anybody else on that tour, I did not have my own hotel room. I was not asked if I wanted my own hotel room."

The court case is set to begin on November 4 in New York City and could have landmark repercussions for entertainment industry employees.
