Lady Gaga: My ex-assistant is ‘a f–king hood rat’

Lady Gaga and Jennifer O'Neill

Back in 2011, Lady Gaga was sued by her former assistant Jennifer O’Neill for 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime, to the tune of $393,000 dollars. (Somewhere out there, Lindsay Lohan just went “HA! Amateur,” before asking Gaga for a $50,000 loan.) Anyway, the tapes from Gaga’s deposition have made their way online, and if Gaga’s still an anti-bullying advocate, she sure as hell isn’t showing it.

Lady Gaga unloaded on a former personal assistant who’s suing her for overtime pay — blasting the woman in a sworn deposition as a “f–king 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,” Gaga ranted, court records obtained by The Post show.

“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.”

[...] But under questioning, she conceded her decision not to pay overtime wasn’t based on labor laws, but is “actually based on a bubbly, good heart.” (Via NY Post)

You really should read the whole deposition, because while I have no doubt that Gaga’s assistant is entirely blameless here, Gaga goes full-blown Regina George in Mean Girls. Honestly, the more I see Gaga actually interacting with people she disagrees with, the more I get the feeling that she isn’t so much anti-bullying as she is anti-anyone who doesn’t agree with Gaga, Queen of the Universe.
