Lady Gaga's former assistant suing over over-time

Lady Gaga's former assistant is suing the touring company that hired her to work for Gags during her Monster Ball Tour for 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime which equals $380,000. Oh snap.

I guess Gaga is quite needy...but does this surprise anyone? The woman showed up to a red carpet in an egg that was carried on the shoulders of 4 men. So when her assistant says that she had to bring her towels when she got out of the shower I don't think that is much of a stretch.

But suing for overtime? Isn't part of the job working 24/7? I am kind of confused by this. The woman was on a $75,000 salary and got to witness the Gaga gong show daily. Shouldn't that be enough.

Gagas peeps are saying the lawsuit is completely without merit...and I am sure other celebs are hoping a precedent is not set over this. People having to pay their PAs overtime...that would become quite costly.
