Lady Gaga dropped a few “F-bombs” in court on a former personal assistant who is suing her for overtime pay. Lady Gaga, 26, is being sued by Jennifer O’Neill, who was her assistant during two stints between 2009 and 2011. O’Neill claims she is owed compensation for over 7,000 hours of overtime.
Justin Beiber had a similar issue with a bodyguard earlier this year, in a report by The Inquisitr.
According to the New York Post, Lady Gaga blasted her personal assistant as a:
“f***ing hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn. … She’s just — she thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe. … And, you know what, 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.”
Lady Gaga couldn’t maintain her “poker face”, sniping at ex-aide Jennifer O’Neill near the start of Gaga’s six-hour testimony in a law office in Midtown Manhattan:
“Are you going to stare at me like a w*tch this whole time – honestly? Because this is going to be a long f***ing day that you brought me here.”
Lady Gaga, who in a report by The Inquisitr performed at the inaugural ball, even unloaded on one of O’Neill’s lawyers, Paul Millus:
“No, no, no. Listen, listen, sir, if you’re going to ask me questions for the next five hours, I am going to tell you exactly what f***ing happened, so that the judge can read on this transcript exactly what’s going on.”
According to Yahoo News, Lady Gaga says O’Neill was hired as “a favor” and “majorly unqualified,” failing at even the simplest tasks. One said tasks to lay out Lady Gaga’s clothing properly while they traveled, while O’Neill “slept until [noon] most of the time.” Lady Gaga said this was:
“very stressful [because] I weigh 115 pounds and I was trying to move these huge, big luggages all by myself”
Do you think Lady Gaga is being unreasonable in expecting Jennifer O’Neill to perform duties she herself has a hard time performing? Or were her “F bombs” under oath justified?
In the strangest way, when I face more challenges it just makes me stronger. More sure of my mission, of my music. twitter.com/ladygaga/statu…
