I was expected to do everything for my boss," a former assistant to a famous fashion model revealed to The Post. "She thought nothing of calling me at 3 a.m. — I was given two phones so I would never be unreachable — to ask me to come over and let her dog out to pee. One day she sent me some photos of her hemorrhoids. She wanted me to find a doctor to remove them. I’ll never un-see those images.”

In 2012, Lady Gaga's former employee Jennifer O’Neill claimed that the pop star owed her approximately $390,000 for more than 7,000 hours of overtime. O'Neill said she was expected to be on call 24/7 for Gaga during the 13 months she worked as her assistant. She was tasked with waking the superstar up, and having her towel ready post-shower.
