Lady Gaga is hardly known for holding back. Sued for $393,000 in overtime pay, plus damages, by her ex-personal assistant Jennifer O'Neill, she unleashed a litany of F-bombs as she read her former "friend" to filth during a six-hour deposition (obtained by the NY Post)—essentially a pre-court she-said-she-said with both shes and their lawyers present. Here are the choicest of Gaga's quips...
“She’s just — 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.”
“I’m quite wonderful to everybody that works for me, and I am completely aghast to what a disgusting human being that you have become to sue me like this. Because she slept in Egyptian cotton sheets every night, in five-star hotels, on private planes, eating caviar, partying with Terry Richardson all night, wearing my clothes, asking YSL to send her free shoes without my permission, using my YSL discount without my permission.”
“One of the biggest problems I had with Jen is that I felt like she didn’t enough lay out all my stuff for me [while traveling]. There is 20 bags and there is only one me, and I can’t sift through everything.She would only open a couple of bags, and it was very stressful for me because then again on my off days I couldn’t really have a day off because, you know, I weigh 115 pounds, and I was trying to move these huge, big luggages all by myself in the room, and I did it all the time. By the way, she was asleep until 12:00 most of the time, so I was very often waking up and moving my own luggage and doing shit by myself, and it was a problem that I had.”
“You don’t get a schedule that is like you punch in and you can play fucking Tetris at your desk for four hours and then you punch out at the end of the day. This is, when I need you, you’re available.”
“I’m going to give all the money that she wants to my employees that work hard for me now that deserve it. I’m not going to give it to her so she can go to Intermix and buy herself a new tube top.”
“[She] wore my coat when we were [at the Thierry Mugler fall 2011 fashion show], she wore my clothes...We partied until 5 in the morning, we got shit hammered, I was crawling on the streets in Paris, I was screaming. Jennifer was there. She hung out all night with me and Terry Richardson, and tons of socialites from Paris, and she had the time of her life...I mean, what a rock-star moment, right?”
On the flight back, Gaga said, O’Neill insisted on sleeping in the second bed and “[She] completely, like, flipped out at me, beyond belief [when] I told her no [she couldn't sleep in the second bed]. I said, ‘Jennifer, this is really inappropriate in front of Terry Richardson,’ and she was like, ‘Don’t I get some sort of seniority because I’ve been here longer and I’m your friend?’ And I remember those words as clear as day, because when your best friend looks you in the eye and says, ‘Why can’t I have that seat on your private plane, I’m your friend,’ the first thing I thought was ‘You’re not my fucking friend.’”
