Da Brat Loses $6 Million In Lawsuit
(AllHipHop News) Da Brat has been commanded to pay $6.4 million to a women she hit with a rum bottle in an Atlanta club owned by Jermaine Dupri.
In 2007, the rapper struck a former cheerleader and waitress, Shayla Stevens, in the head and subsequently served almost three years in jail for the violent crime.
Stevens waged a war in civil court and the judge sided with her.
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.
Da Brat's lawyer disagreed with 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.”
Stevens argued that the attack caused her lifelong injuries to her brain.
Da Brat may appeal the decision.
She is presently still on probation as punishment for the attack.
