Gaga is a monster to work for
Lady Gaga is being sued by a former assistant who claims she was a slave to the singer, having to do such unconscionable things (horror of horrors) as fetching a towel for her
after she showered, and keeping her on schedule! Jennifer O’Neill says she worked for Gaga for 13 months, and is owed $380,000 in overtime. O’Neill says in her job included “ensuring the promptness of a towel following a shower and serving as a personal alarm clock to keep [Gaga] on schedule.”
O’Neill claims she had to cater to Gaga in “stadiums, private jets, fine hotel suites, yachts, ferries, trains and tour buses.” O’Neill is suing for the $380k — which represents
7,168 hours of overtime during the 13 months. Gaga is not a defendant because O’Neill is actually suing Mermaid Touring Company, which Gaga uses for concerts and what not.
Gaga’s rep told the New York Post the suit is “completely without merit.”

Etta James is Ill
In sad news the incomparable Etta James’ health has taken a turn for the worse. The iconic singer, who is terminally ill with chronic leukemia, has been hospitalized after having
trouble breathing, according to her manager, Lupe De-Leon. De-Leon, who describes James as “in pretty bad shape,” says that the “At Last” singer’s family is with her at a Riverside, California hospital where she was admitted on Wednesday evening. “She is on a breathing machine and is resting,” he adds. Two days before she was hospitalized, a California judge ruled that James’ husband since 1969, Artis Mills, will remain conservator of her million-dollar estate. On December 15, James’ doctors announced that the singer’s leukemia was terminal and requested prayers from her family and fans. James is a true legend who has changed the face of music and influenced many of today’s biggest artists. Our prayers go out to her and her family.

Basketball Wife Charged with Evelyn charged with Fraud.
Evelyn Lozada one of the stars of “Basketball Wives” who was once engaged to former NBA All-Star Antoine Walker is being sued for allegedly receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally. Walker raked in a $110 million during his NBA career, in addition to untold millions in endorsements and other deals and then blew it all. Walker filed for bankruptcy last year, and now the bankruptcy trustee smells a rat. It seems Walker gave Lozada $560,000 when he already knew he was going belly up. The trustee has sued Lozada, claiming the transfer was fraudulent — an attempt to hide money from legitimate creditors. The trustee says Lozada used the money to start her shoe store called Dulce, and now the trustee wants the $560k back. Lozada and Walker insist there was no funny business. He gave her the money to help pay her bills. Lozada claims she funded Dulce by selling her engagement ring and claims to have no idea Walker was so deep in debt.
