Lady Gaga, Ex-Assistant Lawsuit Ends in Settlement

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.”
