Lady Gaga's former personal assistant is reportedly sueing the popstar. Jennifer O'Neill, 41, alleges that Lady Gaga, 25, owes her hundreds of thousands of dollars in back pay. Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, apparently employed O'Neill for 13 months in 2010 as her personal assistant during the pop icon's 2010 Monster Ball world tour.
According to reports, court papers filed in Manhattan federal court say O'Neil's duties for Lady Gaga included "ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower and serving as a personal alarm clock to keep on schedule." O’Neill paints a bleak picture of serving the pop princess. In the lawsuit she says there were no breaks for meals “or, at times, even sleep.” She claims she had to serve the needs of Lady Gaga, the Grammy Award-winner, from her "earliest waking hour to spontaneous, random matters in the middle of the night." She even played a part in the star’s legendary wardrobe, “ensuring the availability of chosen outfits” like Gaga’s infamous MTV Video Music Awards meat dress.
O'Neill said she was paid a salary of $75,000 for the job, but worked 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime. In the lawsuit, she claims Lady Gaga's Mermaid Touring company owes her $380,000 in overtime pay. She is seeking that, plus more in damages.
