Welcome back everyone! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. And to welcome you back, here’s the most baseless celebrity lawsuit ever: Jennifer O’Neill, aka Lady Gaga‘s former assistant, is suing her touring company because she claims she was forced to do demeaning work. And by “demeaning work”, we actually mean “her normal job.” And she’s also suing for 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime worth $380,000. But we’ll discuss why that’s bullshit after the token blockquote from TMZ.
Jennifer O’Neill says in her lawsuit … she worked for Gaga for 13 months, and is owed $380,000 in overtime. O’Neill says in her suit her job included “ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower and serving as a personal alarm clock to keep [Gaga] on schedule.” O’Neill claims she had to cater to Gaga in “stadiums, private jets, fine hotel suites, yachts, ferries, trains and tour buses.” And, O’Neill says, she was required to be at Gaga’s beck and call at her “earliest waking hour.”
Yes, how dare they make her do the job they’re paying her to do? I don’t know, I don’t really speak lazy-famewhorese. Yet here’s the kicker: If we assume that she did in fact work 7,168 hours, then that means that – remembering that there are roughly 56 weeks in 13 months and 7 days in a week – O’Neil was working 128 overtime hours a week, or about 18 overtime hours per day. You know you’re lawsuit is complete bullshit when a sixth grade understanding of basic mathematics discredits the whole thing.
