Lady Gaga has come forward with the sentiments of a performer who is very sensitive about criticism as she hit back with strong words after being hit with a lawsuit. ANI News reported on Sept. 16, 2013, "I'm the queen of the universe, says Lady Gaga." Lady Gaga has retaliated against the lawsuit by her former assistant by saying that in her work and what she does she is the queen of the universe.
Lady Gaga has expressed shock that her former assistant is suing her. TVNZ has reported, "Lady Gaga hits back at former assistant." Gaga's ex-best friend, Jennifer O'Neill, has sued her and claims she owes her $380,000 in overtime payments. O'Neill says she had to spend 24 hours a day with Gaga and share the same bed during The Monster Ball tour in 2010. Gaga has stated in a 200-page witness statement that she rewards her hardworking staff with perks instead of overtime pay.
Gaga has gone on to claim her friend did not earn the money she is suing for and the job was essentially given as a favor. O'Neill claims she worked hard for Gaga and she felt it was a required part of her job to sleep with her employer. This court case will begin on Nov. 4 in New York City and is being watched carefully by entertainment industry employees. Well, no offense intended to her O'Neill, but Lady Gaga remains as always a spectacular entertainer and fascinating person!
