Da Brat bashed in the head with a $6.4 million judgement in bottle attack lawsuit


I like Da Brat but It’s always a coward move to use weapons in a one on one fight, so for that reason alone it’s kinda hard to be sympathetic to the news that she was just ordered to pay $6.4 milli to the chick that she bashed in the head with a bottle a few years ago leaving her with brain damage…

I doubt she’ll actually receive much of the judgement cash since Da Brat havent dropped a project in a few years and was just released from prison not too long ago but I guess it’s about the principle, check out more details on this news below…

-AJC Reports;

Atlanta rapper Da Brat was ordered to pay $6.4 million to the woman she attacked with a rum bottle, a Cobb County jury ruled Thursday afternoon. Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, served nearly three years in prison for the 2007 attack against Shayla Stevens, a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader and waitress. 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.

“I’m baffled,” Attorney B.J. Bernstein said. “She owned up to what happened when it happened and was punished.”But Stevens’ attorney said his client sustained lifelong injuries in the assault, which happened at Halloween party at Studio 72, a club owned by Atlanta hip-hop mogul 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.” (AJC)
