Lady Gaga Brands Ex-Assistant Jennifer O’Neal “A F**king Hoodrat”

You can take the girl out of the Big Apple, but you can’t the Big Apple out of the girl.

Lady Gaga spouted off some serious fighting words after taking the stand in an ongoing court battle with her former personal assistant. According to a 2011 lawsuit filed in Manhattan, Jennifer O’Neal is claiming Mother Monster owes her more than $393,000, plus damages, for 7,168 hours of overtime.

It’s a charge Gaga isn’t taking laying down. The “Born This Way” singer, 26, referred to Jennifer O’Neal as a “f**king hood rat who is suing me for money she didn’t earn.” Gaga said of her former aide during the court battle:

“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.”

The outlandish pop star’s rant didn’t stop there; she later referred to O’Neil as a “disgusting human being,” adding:

“She knew there was no overtime, and I never paid her overtime the first time I hired her, so why would she be paid overtime the second time? This whole case is bulls**t and you know it.”

Whose side are you on?
