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.

Hollywood…in a Mouthful!!

Obama Calls Americas Most Popular Couple a Bad Influence

Prez Obama has called out Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. He says that shows like Keeping up With the Kardashians give young teens a false sense of reality and says the couple are a bad influence.

We know that the President is not too fond of West, once calling him a “talented jackass.”

Here’s what Obama said actually,

“The American dream involved some pretty basic stuff, a good job where you felt some security, a good education. People felt if they worked hard they could get there. I don’t think people went around saying to themselves, ‘I need to have a 10,000-square-foot house’. I think there has also been a shift in culture. We weren’t exposed to the things we didn’t have in the same way that kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing or where Kanye West was going on vacation and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”

Jermaine Jones Fans Upset About Disqualification

To the utter shock and disgust of American Idol fans all over the country, Jermaine Jones was dismissed from American Idol — and not because of viewer votes.

At the top of Wednesday night’s broadcast,  Ryan Seacrest said Idol producers worked with law enforcement to discover the information that led to Jones’ elimination. Apparently the loveable 6-foot 8-inch giant with a  soulful voice has some legal issues.

Jones neglected to tell Idol officials about his previous arrests and warrants, which led them to believe he was concealing them. The finalist currently has four pending warrants and two prior arrests.

Wednesday night’s live performance show, which featured the competition’s top 12  finalists –minus Jones — performing songs that had been released during the years they were born.

A New Jersey police official has stated the the charges are not big enough to go after in the state of California.

Many fans the world over have expressed there disgust on how Idol handled Jones’ elimination; with some vowing to never watch the show again. Kevin from the popular YouTube series Skorpion Show says it was quite unfair how they took Jones by surprise on national television.  Although Jones was totally surprised with the disqualifiation, a 30 minute pre-show aired with Ryan Seacrest hinting about an unfortunate event at the hotel.

“They say the club is off the chain/ I’m on my Louis shit today, fuck some Gucci Mane/ These niggas still on my dick, they like some groupies, mane…They said the club is off the chain, straights shot to the head/ Fuck some Juice mane/ Ask the real niggas in the city, who got the juice man,” Young Jeezy raps.

Gucci recently made a comment on his feelings about Jeezy’s blow…

“They say the club is off the chain/ I’m on my Louis shit today, fuck some Gucci Mane/ These niggas still on my dick, they like some groupies, mane…They said the club is off the chain, straights shot to the head/ Fuck some Juice mane/ Ask the real niggas in the city, who got the juice man,” Young Jeezy raps.

For those who don’t remember how the beef actually started. Gucci Mane’s first radio single So Icy was initially supposed to be included on Jeezy’s debut solo album, but Gucci had not approved the release .

Coincidentally, both rappers will perform Saturday, June 20  at Atlanta’s Birthday Bash 14.
