Lady Gaga’s former assistant claims she was a slave to the singer; she claims she had to fetch her a towel for Gaga after she showered, as well as keeping the pop star on schedule.
Jennifer O’Neill claims in her lawsuit that she worked for 13 months, and is owed $380,000 in overtime. O’Neill says in her suit her job included “ensuring that promptness of a towel following a shower and serving as a personal alarm clock to keep [Gaga] on schedule.”
O’Neill says she had to cater Gaga in “stadiums, private jets, fine hotel suites, yachts, ferries, trains and tour buses.”
She also added that she was required to be at Gaga’s beck and call at her “earliest waking hour.”
O’Neill is suing for the $380k; that is 7,168 hours of overtime within the 13 months she worked.
Since Gaga is not a defendant, O’Neill is suing Mermaid Touring Company, which Gaga uses for concerts.
Lady Gaga’s representative told the New York Post the suit is “completely without merit.”
