The 'Former Assistant' Suing Lady Gaga Is Actually Lady Gaga's Former Best FriendS

Fame and money bring their own unique set of problems, one of which is that, if you become rich and famous, the people you were bffs with when you were 19 might turn on you like a jackal and sue you for upwards of $300,000. It's a tough world even for the stars, and this morning, Lady Gaga tweeted about just how tough being rich, famous, and very stylish can be:

Everyone's headlines need an updating. "former assistant" is actually "my best friend from NY since I was 19." Painful stuff.

Bummer. I guess Lady Gaga and her erstwhile best friend won't be having a Stand By Me reunion anytime soon. [Twitter]
