Lady Gaga, born as Stefani Germanotta, had a part of claim thrown out by a New York City judge. Germanotta was sued back in 2011 by Jennifer O’Neill, a former assistant whom claimed that she was owed unpaid overtime. O’Neill claimed that she was on call every single day of the week and was owed $380,000 for being on call “every hour of every day,” according to the New York Daily News.
When Germanotta asked to have that section of the case thrown out citing that O’Neill was able to attend to personal matters as long she kept her phone on her. Judge Paul Gardephe threw out Germanotta’s claim citing that if O’Neill was to be on-call at any given hour, that would constitute as working. Now a jury has to decide whether or not O’Neill is rightfully owed her money. They also have to determine whether Germanotta’s calls interfered with her personal time.
Tell us your thoughts in the comments below. Do you think O’Neill’s claims are farfetched or do you think she’s rightfully owed her money?
