Lady GaGa's Former Assistant Suing Over Whaaat?!? Ick!

Oooh no. Get THIS!

One of Lady GaGa's former assistants is suing for $380,000 in overtime over a 13 month span.

Jennifer O'Neil claims she was a "slave" having to do such horrible duties like ensuring GaGaloo a towel after every shower and making sure GaGa woke up on time.

Gasp! Noo… WHAT a slave-runner… (now lets point out the thick layer of sarcasm here so everyone's on the same page).

Let's also point out that Mother Monster isn't technically the one being sued here. Jennifer is suing Mermaid Touring Company. But still…

This MUST have been this girl's first time as an assistant, because HELL-LOH! Those all go in the job description of personal assistants.

And honestly, we've heard of a lot worse with other performers! So what is the problem here????

    That doesn't justify it, now does it?



  2. 2

    i'm so glad lady gags bubble is slowly bursting! well this is about over time, and i'm sure this person went to them and asked and asked and asked before legal proceedings, just pay her off gags, U DONT NEED MORE BAD PRESS



  3. 3

    The problem is YOU. Your reporting of anything is not subjective -always a tilt or slant to your own point of you and the expectation that everyone SHOULD agree with you. Go look for a McDonalds in India that sells burgers -that should keep you busy. Dumb fucktard.



  4. 4

    Uh, whether you think it's silly or not, Gaga still owes this woman almost $400,000 in overtime…I'd sue over that…



  5. 5

    ????????????????? She was hired to be a personal assistant. What did she think she would be doing? What a shit fuck terd nugget.

    The 'what is the trouble here' sounds like the woman hasn't been paid.



  7. 7

    Perez, shut the fuck up. If this was anyother celebrity and not your precious GaGa you would be calling them out as divas.



  8. 8

    AND THE POOR GIRL HAD TO LOOK AT GAGA'S UGLY FACE, LISTEN TO HER SHITTY SONGS AND SMELL HER DIRTY ASS



  9. 9

    The problem is working 18 hours a day and only being paid for 8. And no, being that close to Gaga is not payment enough.



  10. 10

    I like how you just pretty much gloss over the entire story, making it seem like the girl is the nutty one. There is a LOT more to it than what you posted. Gaga is crazy, other former assistants can attest to that. Why do you think she goes through so many of them? She made one of them sleep with her and shower with her, so she wouldn't be alone. Does that sound normal to you? That is not something that should be required of a personal assistant. Regardless, what the complaint is about is the fact that she has not been paid money she is owed. Seems Gaga has a habit of "forgetting" to pay people she owes money too.



  11. 11

    By the way, the fact that she can't get her own towel after she takes a shower says VOLUMES about her personality.



  12. 12

    She's so full of herself, u never heard this from the queen of pop Britney Spears



  13. 13

    Handing her a towel as she got out of the shower would probably require seeing her naked. That in and of itself is torture enough. Honestly, she is one ugly mofo with boobs that look like a 90 year old. UGH.

  14. ed69 says – reply to this


    14

    why cant she reach to get a towel on her own? what a dumb bitch



  15. 15

    If this was ANY other artist, you'd be like: OH MY GOD, (INSERT CELEBRITY) IS SUCH A BAD PERSON! WHO COULD SHE?

    But with her? OH NO! HOW CAN SOMEONE WANT THEIR OVERTIME TO BE PAID? SHAME ON YOU!!!!



  16. 16

    I am sorry but being a personal assistant doesn't mean toweling off your boss when they get out of the shower. I might be wrong but forcing your employee to see your nude body should count as some kind of sexual harassment. To me a P.A. is someone who schedules stuff, runs errands etc.

    But again the MAIN COMPLAINT is the your precious Gaga didn't pay the woman for the hours she worked. A P.A. isn't a slave if you make her work overtime then you have to pay her overtime. All this woman wants is the money she is rightfully owed.



  17. 17

    She's suing the touring company, not Gaga, so don't blame her for this because it's not her fault if this woman wasn't being paid. How would she know?



  18. 18

    if gags didnt know about all this until right now, then she's got some major problems ahead of her! she is not in control at all if she doesn't know! it is her company? no?…she's too busy trying on costumes to care, she is the MAIN REASON WHY THIS WOMAN HAD TO WORK OVERTIME! U GAGS FANS R SO DELUSIONAL!!!!!



  19. 19

    She's a PERSONAL ASSISTANT. And what do personal assistant's do?



  20. 20

    well if she worked the overtime she should be paid for it. Unless she was on salary then the overtime hours were her choice.



  21. 21

    Bringing her a towel after every shower does not seem like a job for a personal assistant.. That's something everyone can do on their own (unless they are handicapped), no matter how busy they are.. And I think this is more about the payment she isn't getting, for work she's been doing..



  22. 22

    Obviously a frivolous lawsuit since everybody knows whore GaGa doesn't bathe and smells like tuna fish mixed with fecal matter.

    Re: Phibes – …focusing back on my happy place, focusing back on my happy place…



  24. 24

    Re: ickynicky – I agree. Having someone hand you a towel when you get out of the shower is one step away from having them wipe for you after you go to the toilet. Oh, and the not getting paid thing sucks too.



  25. 25

    Re: @v@ – Yeah, I know… too much turkey.
    I'm OK now. Thanks!



  26. 26

    Ithink Perez you are too quick to defend Lady Gaga as you kiss the ground she walks on. This girl is probably looking for a pay day, but you really have no idea what she had to go through on a day to day basis. so don't be so quick to judge people you fat homo!



  27. 27

    you have no right to complain about fox news when you attempt to spin a story like this. She's suing because she didn't get paid for her work. what she did doesn't matter because she still didn't get paid for it. asshole.



  28. 28

    She isn't suing lady gaga, she's suing the company that hired her and appointed her to lady gaga.



  29. 29

    The Company needs to pay the Assistant! Period!



  30. 30

    Is everyone aware that despite this "stunt queen" saying she "hated fur" and would "never wear fur", she wore fur in the last issue of Vanity Fair, and has been seen wearing fur on more than one occasion. She will say whatever she does to get get attention, and of course, because she is Perez "Wifey" then its never reported.

    31

    Not the first time one of her assistants has come foreward…I remember about a year ago one woman said Gaga used to make her sleep with her and like sit in the bathroom with her while she took a shower cause she NEVER wanted to be alone. And lets not forget the time Gaga FIRED her ENTIRE SECURITY TEAM and wardrobe assistant after a show one time because a fan, a beloved little monster who she loves soo much, got on stage



  32. 32

    WHAT SHE CANT GET HER OWN TOWEL OR WAKE UP BY HERSELF i need a assistant if thats the case…!! sheesh pay the lady i hope she drops the full dirt on it and tells all



  33. 33

    She should sue for the loss of overtime. She should also sue for emotional damage having to work for this piece of shit. Giving it a towel after a shower ? That would be enough to sue for more damages…



  34. 34

    Lady Germanotta wishes she can hate on a flower and it makes world news and headlines.



  35. 35

    I cannot see that this woman has a case if she was on a salary, that basically means unpaid overtime. What on earth did she expect anyway working for a celebrity? She said something about not having time to eat or sleep (yeah right), one wit on another website said looking at her we can see she didn't have any problems finding time to eat ;o)



  36. 36

    Re: HAWTSTUFF – No, we just heard about her exposing herself to her bodyguard, shaving her hair and numerous other nutty goings on, don't come holier than thou over this, I guarantee all celebs have their PAs (which stands for PERSONAL ASSISTANT) doing all kinds of stuff, this woman is out to make money, she has been paid her salary, overtime doesn't come into it, you don't get paid for how many hours you work on salary ;o)



  37. 37

    OMG, she can't wake herself up in the morning or get her own towel after a shower??! Get a freaking alarm clock like the rest of us! As for the towel…I'm speechless.

    I try to take gossip with a grain of salt, but Lady Gaga seems like her "fame" is getting to her head….and *not* in a good way…

    all the money in the world isn`t enough if you have to see caca`s face 24/7.



  39. 39

    people here are so stupid. A personal assistant or production assistant.. get paid SHI* thats the way it is! Dont go into the BIZ if u wanna make BANK! Go into FINANCE u aholes and STOP complaining you're broke. She wants her 2 seconds of fame..



  40. 40

    gaga is a fraud…. she doesnt paid her employees. shame on her



  41. 41

    Payment issues aside, ensuring someone a towel or waking them up is not hard work. The troops that came home from the Middle East were doing hard work. Or try doing construction or some other outdoor job for hours on end in the middle of a heatwave, sweetie. THAT is hard work.



  42. 42

    And how many times a day is GaGa going to shower or that she needs to be woken up? Once, maybe twice in a day? Taking a few minutes out of your day to do those tasks that you signed on to do is not akin to slavery.



  43. 43

    God forbid someone gets paid for the work they do…that's SUCH a capitalist thing to do, everyone should just work for free and get everything they desire for free.

    Oh wait, the world doesn't work like that, people work to get paid. Why don't gaga take some of her millions she gets for acting like a complete whore and pay the damn woman the money she deserves



  44. 44

    i work 18+ hours a day and only 'officially' get paid for 9. its the norm in a lot of jobs these days- especially if you sign up to work as a popstars assistant..

    this girl has no legs to stand on: 'i thought that being a popstars assistant would only be 9-5.' really? REALLY?

    This girl was on 75k a year- i think the headline salary alone indicates that you're going to have to do the hours required by the job and there's no overtime. however, SURELY THIS IS IN THE CONTRACT. if not, then whoever drafted the contract deserves a load of overdraft charges.

    last time i checked, the ending of the devil wears prada doesnt involve andrea suing for overtime…

    too many people in the world these days wanting big $$$ to do nothing.



  45. 45

    I would never agree to be Lady Gaga's personal assistant for only 75k. She's way too needy! I would do it for one million dollars though. Lady Gaga if you're reading this I don't really like you but for a million dollars, I'll keep it professional.



  46. 46

    ha! perez doesn't like the fact that his mother monster is being exposed for being the snooty spoiled brat that she really is!! 75,000 WOULD NEVER be enough money to make me be at someones beckon call 24 hours a day. Stop sucking her peen peen and realize that your mother monster is a money sucking hack. And I also like how Perez didn't post the full story.. typically assistants are treated like NORMAL people who get paid overtime, because well THATS THE FKN law. If she works more then 8 hours a day, whether it is running errands or wiping the shi* from lady gag gag;s ass, she deserves to have the over time compensation she is deserved.



  47. 47

    Re: MsJules – the assistant was being paid salary, not hourly. There is this website called google, use it if you dont know the diff between the two



  48. 48

    So much love for Gaga!

    When you work for trash your bound to get burned!!

    Oh so she isn't as "sweet" as she claims? LOL her choreographer said the same thing. PLEASE…she is a calculating skank.



  54. 54

    Re: Tiffany625 – If you believe EVERYTHING you read on Google, I truly feel sorry for you. Just another blind sheep.



  55. 55

    Re: MsJules – I believe she was referring to looking up the meaning of the word "salary", its a definition and isn't exactly arguable - so I quote "Salary is a fixed amount of money or compensation paid to an employee by an employer in return for work performed. Salary is paid, most frequently, in a bi-weekly paycheck to an exempt or professional employee. In most years, an employee’s salary is paid in 26 even paychecks over the course of the year.

    An employee who is paid a salary is expected to complete a whole job in return for the salary. This is different from a non-exempt employee who is paid an hourly rate or by the piece produced. This employee is generally eligible to collect overtime.

    The salaried employee or employee who is paid by salary does not track hours worked and is not paid for overtime."

    @Baranged >We've heard alot worst with other performers.
    .
    .
    That doesn't justify it, now does it?

    Nope… But then again, if she thinks doing that is being a slave than what isnt? as an assistant thats exactly the type of thing ur suppostu do.
