Celebrity lawsuit of the day: Lady Gaga,discovery and depositions

Yup, being Lady Gaga ain’t easy.

Manhattan Federal Court Judge Paul G. Gardephe

…has ordered celebrity shutterbug Terry Richardson to hand over a whopping 142,000 pictures he took of Lady Gaga during her 2011 “Monster Ball” tour…

Gaga’s former assistant Jennifer O’Neill contends the pictures are important evidence in her pending lawsuit against Gaga for overtime money she claims she’s owed, because they show how closely she worked with the superstar—and the crazy hours she put in.

Of course you’ll want to read the entire Daily News Confidenti@l tidbit: Judge tells Terry Richardson to turn over thousands of Lady Gaga pics in wages lawsuit – NY Daily News.

And there’s a tidbit about Gaga’s deposition—which it seems she handled quite badly:

In her deposition Gaga…admitted her decision not to pay overtime wasn’t based on labor laws. “I’m quite wonderful to everybody that works for me, and I am completely aghast to what a disgusting human being that you [O’Neill] have become to sue me like this.”

So dumb, Gaga. I’m completely aghast at your comments, never mind your lousy grammar.

And some day, maybe soon, I’ll get to discussing more about the discovery stage of a lawsuit, including depositions.
