Brat Still Owes $6.4 Million To Cheerleader, That’s One Expensive Brawl

(SL) – We’ll say that’s one lesson learned. I love me some Brat. But back in the day the talented beauty unleashed her anger and ended up serving time for it. Most of you probably remember when Da Brat was at the height of her rap career, she got into an altercation with former Atlanta Falcons’ cheerleader Shayla Stevens in a nightclub.

During the fight, Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, hit Stevens in the head with a rum bottle.  The ex-cheerleader who reportedly was working as a server on the night in question, claimed it casued permanent facial scarring, mental pain and neurological damage.

The altercation happened in October of 2007 at producer Jermaine Dupri’s Studio 72 nightclub. The platinum artist, plead guilty to aggravated assault and was sentenced to three years in prison, 200 hours of community service, and 7 years under probation. And ordered to pay millions to the victim. Da Brat was released in 2011 and Shayla Stevens claims she still hasn’t been paid.

Stevens is now hitting Da Brat with multiple garnishment complaints, the first step in collecting what she’s owed after the incident. She’s hoping to get money from Da Brat’s royalties through Sony music and from her job as a co-host on Radio One’s Ricky Smiley Morning Show.
