(Gossip-Grind News) Da Brat Ordered To Pay Ex-NFL Cheerleader Shayla Stevens $6.4 Million:
Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, was sued by a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader over allegations that Harris hit the woman with a rum bottle in 2007 causing permanent scarring. Harris served three years in jail for the attack.
Shayla Stevens — who used to cheer for the Atlanta Falcons — sued Da Brat in 2009, while the rapper was serving her prison sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault.
The civil trial hit a stumbling block Wednesday when a juror in the case admitted he wasn’t a U.S. citizen — but the new jury quickly reached a verdict today.
The jury found Da Brat — real name Shawntae Harris — responsible for causing Stevens’ permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain.
The jury awarded ex-NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens $3.7 million to cover her injuries and past/future loss of earnings. They awarded the victim another $2.7 MILLION as added punishment for Da Brat’s violent bottle assault. Da Brat now owes Stevens a grand total of $6.4 MILLION.
