Lady Gaga's Former Assistant Writing Tell-All Book
Lady Gaga’s former assistant Jennifer O’Neill has signed with Atria Books to write a tell-all book about the musician.
Page Six first reported news of the deal, which an Atria spokesperson confirmed.
O’Neill worked for Gaga from 2009-11, when the singer was on her Monster Ball tour. In 2011, O’Neill sued Gaga for $393,000 in overtime back pay. The court case provided a hint of some of the things O’Neill might spill about her former boss, including being required to share a bed with Gaga because she didn’t like sleeping alone and being woken in the middle of the night to change the DVD in the player because Gaga didn’t feel like doing it herself.
In a deposition, Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, called O’Neill a “f–ing hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn.”
The suit was settled out of court in October 2013. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Page Six and The Mirror reported that O’Neill’s book deal could be worth $1 million, but terms of the contract were not disclosed. No title or publication date has been announced.
