Sources say that Lady Gaga's record label was forced to order new costumes for the remainder of her world tour, the "Born This Way Ball," because of the singer's recent 24-pound weight gain. 

Radar Online reported that executives at Universal Music Group saw recent concert pictures of Lady Gaga pouring out of her costumes and they were concerned. 

"The tight, skimpy outfits weren't doing anything for Gaga's new fuller figure, so Universal ordered more flattering and better fitting costumesfor the rest of the tour," a source said, according to the site. "No one likes to criticize someone who has put on weight, but she has been showing some serious muffin top, especially when wearing tight suspenders. It just wasn't a good look and was getting unnecessary criticism, so they moved fast to nip it in the bud."

Gaga, born Stefani Germanotta, admitted to the weight gain in an interview on Sept. 19 and said that she is going to diet to lose the extra pounds. 

In other news, the singer's former personal assistant argued that Mother Monster has "ludicrious" privacy demands in their court battle over the singer allegedly not paying her  hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime pay, the New York Post reported.

"[Gaga] is probably the last person in the world to care about her 'privacy,' exposing herself in all manner of bizarre and intimate ways for the world to see every day," lawyers for Jennifer O'Neill argued in court papers filed in federal court on Sept. 21.

The pop icon recently posed nearly nude for Terry Richardson's coffee table book and now she is fighting a subpoena from O'Neill seeking Richardson's unpublished photos, calling them "private and personal" in court documents, according to the Post.  

O'Neill claimed that she was at Gaga's side "from dawn to dawn" and added, "to such an extent that at one point I was asked . . . to step back so that I would not be in the way during photo shoots." Supposedly the obtained photos would help O'Neill support her claim, and her demand for $380,000 in unpaid overtime.
