Da Brat‘s violent attack on a waitress in an Atlanta nightclub in 2007 is costing her.

According to TMZ the rapper was in court Thursday (Feb. 27) for a civil trial regarding a lawsuit filed against her by Shayla Stevens, a former waitress at Studio 72, a club owned by producer Jermaine Dupri.

Stevens, also a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader, sued the 39-year-old entertainer in 2007, for hitting her in the face with a bottle, which left a deep laceration on her cheek, according to reports.

A jury found Da Brat responsible for causing Stevens’ permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment and severe mental pain. She must now pay the victim $6.4 million. Initially, the rhymer was ordered to cough up $3.7 million. An additional $2.7 million has been added by the jury as additional punishment for Da Brat’s actions.

In 2007, Brat plead guilty to felony aggravated assault for the attack. As a result, she was sentenced to three years behind bars, seven years probation and 200 hours of community service. The ‘Funkdafied’ creator was released from prison in May 2010. - source: theboombox.com
