Jennifer O’Neill, Lady Gaga‘s former personal assistant has filed suit against her former employer, alleging that she was overworked and underpaid.

The 41-year-old worked for Lady Gaga for 13 months, accompanying the 25-year-old singer on her 2010 Monster Ball world tour. O’Neill alleges that she put in 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime and is owed more than $380,000, according to New York Post.
O’Neill says she catered to the singer’s eccentric whims and demands around the clock. She insists she had to ensure ‘the promptness of a towel following a shower” and acted as a” personal alarm clock to keep [Gaga] on schedule.”
The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court last week against the superstar’s Mermaid Touring company for unpaid overtime.
This is not the first personal assistant to complain about working for Gaga. Former employee Angela Ciemny claimed she had to sleep with the singer most nights because she refused to be alone, according to Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga.
A spokeswoman for Gaga has branded the lawsuit “completely without merit.”
