Lady Gaga's request for a 'mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair' on her rider has been revealed.

The pop star apparently asked for the strange item from venues whilst on her Monster's Ball tour.

Gaga's rider details were revealed in the ongoing court case in which her former assistant Jennifer O’Neill, is suing the star for $380,000 (£243,000) in unpaid wages.

Celeb Buzz posted the rider details, which state the kind of ambiance Gaga wanted for her dressing rooms, which was to be 'glam rock' and include the mannequin. The document reads:

Glam rock, Black, Silver statins [sic] dropped over walls Old Rock Posters from her favorite artists Bowie, Queen, Elton, Billy Joel, Billy Holiday [sic] Her favorite fan art that was kept on the road with us.

Gaga also requested a bottle of Jameson as well as several bottles of good quality red and white wine, alongside '1 pack of long straws (must be extra long)'.

Lady Gaga recently tweeted that the "assistant" who is suing her was a close friend who she has known for many years.

Gaga is facing legal action from O'Neill, who claims that she is owed payment for 7,168 hours of overtime.

O'Neill alleged that Gaga expected her to be at her service from the "earliest waking hour" and wanted her duties to extend to "stadiums, private jets, fine hotel suites, yachts, ferries, trains and tour buses". O'Neill alleges that the schedule meant that she was unable to take breaks "or even at times sleep".

Gaga has since said that she would rather give the money to another member of her team who is currently suffering from breast cancer. "She doesn't deserve a dollar more. I'm going to give all the money she wants to my employees that work hard for me and deserve it," she said.

She added: "I am going to give it to Sonja for her breast cancer, for her mastectomy. I'm not going to give it to [Jennifer] so she can go and buy a new tube top."
