Lady Gaga vows to pay for assistant's mastectomy
Feb 6, 2013, 9:01 GMT
Lady Gaga wants to give the money she allegedly owes an ex-employee to another staff member who is battling breast cancer.
The 'Edge Of Glory' singer is being sued by her former personal assistant Jennifer O'Neill, who claims Gaga owes her $380,000 in overtime payments because she was forced to spend 24 hours a day with her, but the superstar insists the ex-staff member doesn't 'deserve' the money and she wants to give it to another aide stricken with the disease.
According to The Sun newspaper, she testified: 'Now her parents will keep paying for her and keep her until my cheque comes through, which she doesn't deserve and I'm not giving to her.
'She doesn't deserve a dollar more. I'm going to give all the money she wants to my employees that work hard for me and deserve it.
'I am going to give it to Sonja for her breast cancer, for her mastectomy. I'm not going to give it to [Jennifer] so she can go and buy a new tube top.'
Jennifer insists Gaga's diva demands during her 'Monster Ball' world tour in 2010 left her exhausted.
According to court documents, she claims she had zero privacy and was forced to share the same bed as the 26-year-old star, who would wake her up in the middle of the night to change DVDs because she didn't want to walk across the hotel room.
In her testimony, Gaga branded Jennifer a 'f**king hood rat' and slammed her demands for overtime payments.
She ranted: 'She thinks she's just like the queen of the universe. 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.'
