Superstar Lady Gaga is being sued by her former assistant. Jennifer O’Neill, Gaga’s old personal assistant, filed a lawsuit against the singer claiming the pop sensation owes her over $380,000 in unpaid overtime. O’Neill was paid by salary, a mere $75,000, to be at Lady Gaga’s beck and call. O’Neill joined the Monster Ball tour, and alleges in the suit that there were no breaks for meals “or, at times, even sleep.” O’Neill states she was forced to be on call at the “earliest waking hour” or for “spontaneous, random matters in the middle of the night.” This is the second law suit from a former Gaga assistant. US Department of Labor website. New York State follows these exclusions but requires that they receive at least one and one half times the minimum rate of $7.15 for their overtime hours.
