OH Snap: Rapper Da Brat Ordered To Pay $6.4M For What? ?

Da Brat has been ordered to pay a total of $6.4 million to the victim of her bottle assault incident.
TMZ reported the jury awarded ex-NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens $3.7 million to cover her injuries and past/future loss of earnings and have since added $2.7 million as punishment.
If you remember, Da Brat bottled the former NFL cheerleader inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007. She’s served more than 3 years in prison for the crime.

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.
