After serving more than three years for cracking a former NFL cheerleader over the head with a bottle during a 2007 nightclub fight, Da Brat will also have to pay her victim $6.4 million dollars after losing her case in civil court.

As previously reported, the civil trial hit a snag Wednesday when a juror in the case admitted he wasn’t a U.S. citizen — but the new jury quickly reached a verdict today, according to TMZ.

Shayla Stevens, who cheered for the Atlanta Falcons, sued Da Brat in 2009, while the rapper was serving her prison sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault.

The jury found Da Brat — real name Shawntae Harris — responsible for causing Stevens’ permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain.
