Remind us not to get on Lady Gaga’s bad side.
The superstar completely unloaded on her ex-personal assistant who is suing her for almost $400,000 in unpaid overtime wages.
In her sworn deposition, the 26-year-old singer called former assistant Jennifer O’Neill, a “f**king hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn," according to the New York Post.
The paper reports that Gaga unleashed a brutal rant during her six-hour testimony, claiming O’Neill thinks she’s "just like the queen of the universe," and said, "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.”
You hear that? Gaga thinks she’s the queen of the universe.
O’Neill filed the lawsuit against her employer of 13 months back in Decemeber 2011,alleging that for $75,000-a-year she had to cater to Gaga’s every whim at any hour of the day or night. According to court papers, O’Neill was responsible for "ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower and serving as a personal alarm clock to keep [Gaga] on schedule," and had to be at her beck and call at all hours of the day and night. As such, O’Neill says Gaga owes her for 7,168 hours of overtime, and Gaga is none too pleased to be dealing with this lawsuit.
“This whole case is bullshit, and you know it,” Gaga said to O’Neill during the deposition on Aug. 6.
“I’m quite wonderful to everybody that works for me, and I am completely aghast to what a disgusting human being that you have become to sue me like this,” she said, adding that O’Neill should be grateful for the luxury lifestyle she got to enjoy while employed by Gaga.
“Because she slept in Egyptian cotton sheets every night, in five-star hotels, on private planes, eating caviar, partying with Terry Richardson all night, wearing my clothes, asking YSL to send her free shoes without my permission, using my YSL discount without my permission," she said.
To recap, Lady Gaga is queen of the universe, and she doesn’t think she needs to pay her assistants overtime because they should be grateful to basically just be in her presence.
Lady Gaga really is the world’s most down-to-earth pop star.
