After serving three years in prison for hitting Shayla Stevens, an Atlanta Falcons cheerleader, in the face with a bottle, rapper Da Brat has been slapped with a $3.7 million judgment in the civil suit filed against her by the victim. The violent altercation that took place at a Halloween party in 2007, caused Stevens permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain. Stevens also says her injuries also hindered her showbiz aspirations.

Da Brat, who donned braids and beads to court, is the first female rapper to go platinum with her debut disc “Funkdafied.” Her most recent album “Limelite, Luv & Niteclubz” (2007) featured the lukewarm singles “Gotta Thing for You (feat. Mariah Carey)” and “In Love Wit Chu (feat. Cherish).”

Perhaps should have thought twice about bashing someone in the face with a bottle.
