Judas strikes back.
Lady Gaga’s former assistant has signed a deal to write a tell-all book about the eccentric star.
Jennifer O’Neill was employed by Gaga between 2009 and 2011 while the singer was on her worldwide Monster Ball tour, but in 2011 she sued her boss for $393,000 in unpaid overtime.
The resulting court case hinted at some of the weird goings-on likely to be documented in O’Neill’s book, such as her claim that she was required to share a bed with Gaga because the singer didn’t like sleeping alone, and was woken in the middle of the night to change the DVD in the player because Gaga couldn’t be bothered to do it herself.
In a deposition, Gage called her formed assistant a “f–ing hood rat who is suing me for money that she didn’t earn.” The suit was settled out of court in October 2013. O’Neill’s deal with Atria Books could be worth $1 million, according to early reports, but the terms of the contract haven’t been revealed, nor is there a date set for publication.
The singer born Stefani Germanotta has had a bumpy ride since the release of her third album ARTPOP, which suffered disappointing sales even before she decided to make a video with two alleged sexual predators. What goes up… [via Billboard]
