Lady Gaga's former personal assistant, Jennifer O'Neill has claimed that she was forced to sleep in the same bed as the singer during her time working for the star.

O'Neill, who was Gaga's assistant for 13 months between 2009 and 2011 has also accused the pop star of failing to pay £242,000 worth of overtime in an on-going legal row.

O'Neill said: "I was by her side virtually 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

"That includes sleeping in the same bed with her. Because she did not sleep alone.

"I had no privacy, no chance to talk to any family, no chance to talk to any friends, no chance to have sex if I wanted to have sex. There was no chance to do anything."

The assistant believes she is owed £242,000 for 7,168 hours of unpaid overtime during Gaga's Monster Ball tour.

The 26-year-old singer has given her own evidence at a lawyer's office in New York and has said O'Neill was treated to a life of luxury including Egyptian cotton sheets, caviar and private jets.

Gaga has been quoted as saying her former PA is a 'f*****g hood rat' and has said: "She thinks she’s queen of the universe - I’m the queen of the universe."
