According to the New York Post, O’Neill says there were no breaks for meals or “even sleep” and she was required for “spontaneous, random matters in the middle of the night.”

O’Neill estimates she worked 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime. Her base salary was $75,000.

A spokeswoman for Lady Gaga told the post the lawsuit was “completely without merit.”
