Former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader awarded $6.4 million after Da Brat assault

What’s a smashed broken bottle on an unsuspecting person worth to you?

To former So So Def rapper Da Brat, it’s worth $6.4 million dollars.

That’s the sum a Georgia based jury awarded a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader after she was allegedly smashed over the head with a bottle by Da Brat.

Per TMZ Sports:

The jury wasn’t finished. They just awarded the victim another $2.7 MILLION as added punishment for Da Brat’s violent bottle assault.

As we reported, the jury has already awarded ex-NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens $3.7 million to cover her injuries and past/future loss of earnings. Da Brat now owes Stevens a grand total of $6.4 MILLION.

The former Falcons cheerleader, Shayla Stevens sued Da Brat in 2009 while she was serving prison time for an aggravated assault charge.

Da Brat hasn’t been active in the music scene for a while (that whole prison thing can really put a damper on such), but rose to fame alongside Jermaine Dupri and had the first solo female rap album (second overall behind Salt-N-Pepa) to go platinum.
