"Queen of the Universe" Lady Gaga Sued by Assistant for $393,000

Lady Gaga, who refers to herself as "Queen of the Universe every day", is being sued by an ex-assistant of hers, Jennifer O'Neill, who claimed that she did over 7,000 hours of overtime which she was never paid for. The sum that amounts to is almost $400,000! However, Queen Gaga while happy to part with the cash, does not want to give it to the ungrateful assistant, and reported by the New York Post, during her 6 hour testimon last August, she explained why.

"I'm quite wonderful to everyone that works for me," she said, as her reasoning behind not paying her staff overtime. None of her staff are paid overtime, and by Gaga's words under oath it sounds like Jen had a lot of perks to the job. "[S]he slept in Egyptian cotton sheets every night, in five-star hotels, on private planes, eating caviar, partying with [photographer] Terry Richardson all night, wearing my clothes, asking YSL [Yves Saint Laurent] to send her free shoes without my permission, using my YSL discount without my permission... It is, like, such an amazing luxury that I get to travel the world and have planes, she doesn't even see what a luxury it is, but she thinks it's owed to her for no reason."

Gaga's reasons for not paying her overtime wasn't just about how much extra her employees are treated to, but also because apparently Ms O'Neill was simply a bad employee. [B]y the way, she was asleep until 12:00 most of the time, so I was very often waking up and moving my own luggage and doing s--t by myself, and it was - it was a problem that I had." Doing sh-t by yourself is a real chore. Anyway, aside from that one final remark (and to be fair to her, she does have A LOT of luggage), it sounds as though Gaga's in the right here.

Plus, infinite philanthropist that she is, although she's not willing to part with the money for O'Neill, she'll not be keeping it for herself. "I'm going to give all the money that she wants to my employees that work hard for me now that deserve it," She said."I'm not going to give it to her so she can go to Intermix and buy herself a new tube top."
