Lady Gaga To Face Trial In Overtime Lawsuit Filed By Ex-Assistant Jennifer O'Neil (VIDEO)

Lady Gaga is to face court after her onetime roommate and friend claimed the singer cheated her out of overtime wages.

A judge ruled that Jennifer O'Neill, who worked as Gaga's personal assistant for more than a year, can tell her story to a jury in November and that a jury can decide whether Gaga's demands left O'Neill any personal time or whether she was on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as she claimed in her 2011 lawsuit.

O'Neill testified that she was responsible for sometimes monitoring the singer's email and telephone communications and for handling all her luggage – generally 20 bags – including clothing, accessories, makeup and toiletries, AP reports.

She also claimed that if Lady Gaga was watching a DVD in the middle of the night and grew tired of it, she woke her up to take out and replace the DVD.

Gaga's day in court is set for 4 November.
