In 2011, former assistant Jennifer O’Neill sued the superstar for more than 7,000 hours of unpaid overtime — an amount she believes totals some $393,000.

According to court documents obtained by Celebuzz, Gaga held nothing back during her six-hour deposition, which was given in August 2012.

“She’s just — she thinks she’s just like the queen of the universe . . . and, you know what, she didn’t want to be a slave to one, because in my work and what I do, I’m the queen of the universe every day,” Gaga said at one point.

O’Neill worked for Gaga from 2009 to 2011, and according to the “Born This Way” singer, was paid a salary of $75,000.

“I’m going to give all the money that she wants to my employees that work hard for me now that deserve it,” according to Gaga. “I’m not going to give it to her so she can go to Intermix and buy herself a new tube top.”

From multiple mentions of photographer Terry Richardson to her definition of “a good assistant,” the lengthy deposition is extremely detailed, but hardly any of the information may come as a shock, considering the lavish life Lady Gaga has been living since skyrocketing to superstardom.

For example, Gaga said at one point: “I can’t walk down the street and go buy myself toiletries, I’ve got to call Jen or now I got to call Wendi [her other assistant], I’ve got to get a whole bunch of people together to help me fix the problem, which wouldn’t happen if she was doing her job properly on regular days.
