Da Brat Ordered to Pay Up
Earlier this week the civil suit filed against rapper Da Brat by the former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader she assaulted in 2007 began in Georgia [click here if you missed that].
The case is over and Da Brat lost BIG...
A jury ruled on Thursday in favor of the victim Shayla Stevens ordering Da Brat to pay her $3.7 million in compensatory damages and an additional $2.7 million in punitive damages for a total of $6.4 million.
Da Brat was said to be stunned and her lawyer called the ruling excessive.
The former cheerleader was left with a permanent scar on her face and a brain injury after Da Brat hit her with a bottle of rum at a Halloween party at Jermaine Dupri's defunct Club 72.
Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, served three years in prison for the attack.
