Can Da Brat Cough up $6.4 Million for Assault Victim?


20140228-162600.jpg

Rapper Da Brat has been ordered to $6.4 million dollars to the woman she hit with a rum bottle in 2007. A Cobb County jury ruled on Thursday.

As you remember, Da Brat, Shawntae Harris, served three years in prison and got another five years for attacking Shayla Stevens, a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader.

Stevens later filed a civil suit against Harris, and that trial concluded Thursday with the verdict. Harris was ordered to pay $3.7 million in compensatory damages and an additional $2.7 million in punitive damages.

According to Stevens’ attorney, his client sustained lifelong injuries in the assault, which happened at a Halloween party at Studio 72, a club owned by Jermaine Dupri.

“She has a brain injury and is a brain injury survivor,” Mark Link, an attorney for Stevens, told The AJC. “It’s not something that will ever go away. She has a scar on her face. She had so much going for her and for it come to an abrupt stop because of this attack.”

But does Da Brat even have $6.4 million? We’re not so sure. Maybe JD, LisaRaye and Mariah Carey can all pitch in.

What we do know is this wasn’t her first violent incident.

In 2001, she pistol whipped a woman, but charges were never filed.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
