Lady Gaga's former assistant Jennifer O'Neill might be suing the pop star for 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime (approximately $393,000, plus damages), but Gaga won't go down easy. Just a couple of her on record statements include describing O'Neill as a "fucking hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn't earn" and "This whole case is bullshit, and you know it." Then there's the allegation that partying with Terry Richardson is a reason O'Neill should have been more appreciative. Enjoy the circus. [NYPost]
