Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga slept with assistant

Lady Gaga's former personal assistant claims she was forced to sleep in the same bed as the star.

The 'Edge Of Glory' hitmaker is being sued by ex-employee Jennifer O'Neill, who claims Gaga 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.

According to court papers obtained by the New York Post's Page Six, Jennifer testified: ''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.''

When asked if sleeping with Lady Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - was a ''required'' part of her job, she said: ''I felt it was.

''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.''

There is no suggestion in the transcripts from the deposition that she and the 26-year-old popstar had a sexual relationship, however Jennifer claimed that she had no time to spend time with any one else while working for Lady Gaga.

She said: ''I had no privacy, no chance to talk to any family, no chance to talk to any friends, no chance to have sex if I wanted to have sex. There was no chance to do anything.

''And she was quite irate that she couldn't reach me on my phone a couple of times, and was quite angry and asked me why she was paying for this hotel room if I was unreachable.

''Another thing she would do in the middle of the night, would be wake me up to have me change the DVD in the DVD player because she didn't want to watch that DVD any more and she couldn't get up to walk across the room to change the DVD herself.''

Lady Gaga dismissed Jennifer's lawsuit in in a video-taped deposition from August last year in New York, saying: ''Jennifer is a] f**king hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn. She thinks she's just like the queen of the universe. 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.

''She knew there was no overtime, and I never paid her overtime the first time I hired her, so why would she be paid overtime the second time? This whole case is b******* and you know it.''
