Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga Heading To Trial Over Former Assistant's Lawsuit

Singer Lady Gaga is heading to trial over a wages dispute with her former personal assistant.

The pop star is currently locked in a legal battle with her ex-employee Jennifer O'Neill, who claims she is owed $380,000 (£253,334) for carrying out 7,168 hours of extra work during the 2010 Monster Ball trek.

A judge ruled on Tuesday (10Sep13) that the case will head to court on 4 November (13), when a jury will decide whether the singer's demands meant O'Neill was on call all day, every day, as she alleged in her 2011 lawsuit.

U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe agreed that O'Neill's "on-call" time could qualify for overtime compensation, reports the Associated Press.

In a deposition for the case, Gaga branded O'Neill a "f**king hood rat" and accused her of failing in her duties by making her carry her own luggage and unpack her own bags, which was "very stressful" for the singer.
