Rapper Da Brat tat tat tat has been ordered by a Atlanta judge to $6.4 to a former cheerleader she hit with a rum bottle over the head in 2007 at nightclub owned by Jermaine Dupri.
Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, Harris, was ordered to pay Stevens $3.7 million in compensatory damages and also an additional $2.7 million in punitive damages.
The former Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens now has permanent brain injuries because of the attack.
TMZ reports that the jury found the actress responsible for causing Stevens’ permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain.
Da Brat did serve 3 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated assault.
Here’s what Da Brat’s lawyer had to say about the verdict.
“I’m baffled,” Attorney B.J. Bernstein told the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “She owned up to what happened when it happened and was punished.”
We doubt DaBrat has that kind of money. She hasn’t had a hit in over 10 years. Better reach out to Mariah Carey for a loan.
