TikToker reveals ‘the worst thing’ she had to do as a personal assistant in Los Angeles
A TikToker decided to share the story of a time when she was a personal assistant in Los Angeles and why she didn’t like it.
She recalls a time when she had to call a high-end specialist in high demand but couldn’t make an appointment – her client was disappointed with her and asked her to name a celebrity he knew.
The former assistant has revealed that her client made her dump her famous friends.
TikTok user Sadie Lane said working with her client turned her away from the profession completely.
“I value everyone’s privacy, and as a personal assistant you’re so close to people’s personal lives it’s like you’re in their shit,” she said, even claiming that she had gone through someone’s divorce records page by page.
She dove into the story and talked about a man she had multiple interactions with that made her want to “leave the state” because she didn’t like working with him so much.
“So he asked me to make an appointment for him with this very high end, high demand specialist. It wasn’t an emergency, he just wants to see this person,” she says in her video.
She also said it was the end of the year, around December, so booking would be difficult.
“It’s packed, everything is packed,” she told him.
She let him know it would be difficult to get an appointment, but she went to call the office anyway, asking for the specialist they needed and if they were available.
“I call, and the office says, ‘yes, no, our earliest is the end of January,'” she explains, informing her client.
He found this unacceptable and told her to call them back, but this time she should say who he is friends with.
“I want you to call them back and let them know I’m friends with Lady Gaga,” she recalled telling him.
Sadie rhetorically asks if working with her once counts as being friends and says she cringed at anyone even saying that – but since it was her job, she had to do it anyway.
“Hey, it’s me again, calling the same person, and I know you said nothing was available, but he’s friends with Lady Gaga,” she says in her video.
The lady on the other end of the phone asks if she can be put on hold and says sure, but her response when she came back shocked her.
The office decided to lock up the client.
“Yes, we can see Friday morning at around 8,” was the receptionist’s response, and it stunned Sadie.
She decided she no longer wanted to work with that client shortly after that.
“Money can’t buy you love, but in this country it can damn buy you healthcare,” Sadie says at the end of the clip.
People were amazed to hear this story and how dropping a famous celebrity’s name secured him a spot as the most in-demand specialist.
Others wondered if “I’m friends with Lady Gaga” was actually a code for something secret.

She also shared an update on the “secret code” in another recent TikTok video.
She directly messaged The Daily Dot saying, “Lady Gaga 100% was not code. I knew working with this person that it was entirely a name drop.
“I don’t know if Lady Gaga has a relationship with the office,” she continued. “It wasn’t a code for drugs or anything like that.”
