Da Brat owes $3.7 million of the $6.4 million judgment against her for inflicting injuries and for the past/future loss of earnings of former NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens.
Da Brat has been ordered by a jury to pay former NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens $6.4 million, according to TMZ.
The amount stems from a 2007 altercation in an Atlanta nightclub in which Da Brat assaulted the one-time Atlanta Falcons cheerleader. Da Brat served more than three years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated assault regarding the incident. She was also sentenced to 200 hours of community service and seven years of probation.
In 2009, Stevens sued Da Brat after a jury found the rapper responsible the permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment and severe mental pain Stevens suffered because of the assault.
