Da Brat

Da Brat won a small legal victory in her ongoing case involving the former cheerleader she assaulted with a rum bottle in an Atlanta nightclub in 2000.

Shayla Stevens, an ex Atlanta Falcons cheerleader, was earning extra cash as a waitress at Jermaine Dupri's Studio 72 nightclub when Da Brat cracked her over the head with a bottle during a dispute over VIP seating.

Brat plead guilty to aggravated assault and served three years in prison. In 2014, a jury awarded Stevens $6.4 million in damages for her pain and suffering.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast a judge denied Stevens' request to toss the rapper in jail for repeatedly refusing to pay up on the multi-million dollar judgment.

The judge said Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, is off the hook for the $6 million judgment while she’s actively in bankruptcy proceedings.

Stevens and her legal team previously asked the judge to find the rapper in contempt of court for not paying at least a portion of the millions she owes.

But Da Brat argued that if she was thrown in jail, she couldn’t earn money to pay off the debt. She thought that filing for bankruptcy offered protection from all current debts and collection efforts.

The judge agreed and ordered that everyone looking to collect off Da Brat back off until her bankruptcy matter is resolved.

The 44-year-old rapper receives a steady income from music royalties plus her paycheck from the Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta reality TV show.

  • Victorious82

  • Trace da Ace

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    RSMS, TV show and club apperances, concerts, and she was in a play.

    She aint paying. She said wtf she said.

  • Alextra Ballard

    That is straight Bird Logic

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I don't think radio guests are paid.

  • hi-liter

    It will take Brat YEARS to even make $6 million dollars. I wonder if she even brings home at least $1 million a year. I doubt it.

  • FukkFolks2018

    She been a guest since 2015? Up there reading the damn news in her proper voice every morning? For past 3 years? Well alright now.

  • ohdearme

    She should fault her attorney that handled her case, immediately after getting that judgment he/she should've placed a lien on DaBrat's home if she has one to secure that debt. At that point she would've been a "secured" creditor and paid in the first of payments not last of whatever is left to pay her. People need to learn the laws just to check up on their attorney.

  • Trace da Ace

    wait...isn't this the same shit that 50 cent is doing?? Filing bankruptcy to keep from paying Rick Ross bbm all that money???

  • bemetoo

    off topic i want to know if carmelo has a huge dack

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Would it surprise you to know that none of the husbands on RHOA are paid a salary? They've been on the show for years, too.

  • ohdearme

    Bankruptcy cases usually last 5 years, the bankruptcy trustee would negotiate an amount to pay within that time, however it doesn't sound like she secured her debt so she may be SOL!

  • ohdearme

    I believe it's a paid position because I recall Claudia Jordan talking about the pay. DaBrat replaced Claudia.

  • Yardgirl

    IMO Brat is hiding her money and quite well at that. I dunno but $6M was too much and for that she will most likely get nada.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Yeah hiding it pretty goodt.

    Oh Lord. Someone gonna come up here and ask you let them bash your head in with a bolla and then see if 6 mil is TOO FREAK MUCH! HUH?

    *whispers... it was tho*

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Nope...Never seen a print in his sweat pants (past or present) and he doesn't exude Big Dack Energy...

  • Alextra Ballard

    Monistat?!?!...it make yo edges grow?

  • FukkFolks2018

    She was up there a LONG time. Since the start I think. I only know of her...bc I used to travel for work and would catch RSMS in other cities. It just replaced Russ Parr on my local morning airways 1-2 years ago. So all we know locally on that show is current co-host lineup...which includes Brat.

  • Coy little wink

    That's a roses claim idk if it really works ?

  • Yardgirl

    LOL!! :-))

  • ohdearme

    I remember keeping up with Claudia's twitter just to make sure she was OFF of RHOA and that's how I knew about her claims of mistreatment and that she thought Rickey was behind her contract not being renewed. When someone would mention love for DaBrat she would back down and say she had nothing but love for her? Rickey she hates, she was paid and missed those coins, lol.

  • Renee26

    Work the system Shawntae... You served time for doing the crime...6.5 million is a lot more than medical bills and time lost off work

  • Renee26

    ???

  • Renee26

    A daily guest huh ?

  • Renee26

    Only 2 of them have husbands

  • MythCalledLove

    Sad because she had and still has potential to give these so called rappers a lesson on how it was done. She was before the top two "rappers". She has had pics of her w/o this signature look. Now she hangs out with Bow Wow never has been hitting on nothing since he had ponytails. He was cute and precious up there rapping. Now he is trying to be hard, dumb ass fighting behind your bodyguard. He was cute as a puppy

  • Dr. P

    Shameful. People stay scamming the system. Her azz will pay one way or another. Jail time does not compensate a ruined face and career. I would stay on her azz for my coin too.

  • MJF

    LOL

  • Rachel

    He is tall and most tall men ain’t packing.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    You know that chick prob didn’t care about his thang... she knows what that bank acct sitting like.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Even Bow Wow dropped the "lil" from his name and goes by his real name. She'll be in her 60's & 70's still going by Da Brat.

  • Judge Mental Will

    She should get life in prison for continuing to wear a 90's hairstyle at the age of 44.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Not just 90s but childlike hair styles LOL.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    For 18 years she’s evaded payment?!?

    Gotdamn!

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Ms. Sandra are you saying Brat is not getting paid from Dish Nation or is she just not getting a radio check?

  • MythCalledLove

    That does not apply to a certain 6'10 I know. But I've always said size means nothing to me. It's what you do with what you got. Big d!ck is a waste if you do not know how to use it.

  • Sassie

    I don't condone what Da Brat did, and I think she SHOULD pay the girl. I think the girl's face is messed up or something. But Brat NEVER had millions, even in her hey day. The judgement was dumb to begin with. She deserved those 3 years though. And for the record, she also works on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, too...but she don't have no money like that nowadays...just a regular joe. And she needs to nix the 90s hairdos, even though she DOES look cute with em.

  • Judge Mental Will

    ok. she's a niece who refuses to grow up ?

  • Sassie

    Nope. She works on a radio show in the mornings, and then that Hip Hop show. Neither equals millions.

  • Sassie

    She's not a guest, San. She's a regular on the show....part of the team. I listen to Rickey's crazy tail every morning, and Brat be RIGHT there next to him laughing.

  • Ryan

    I wonder if the ex-cheerleader is able to work? Cause the possibility of her getting $6 mil seems slim to none. After all these years of dragging this out I can't imagine the lawyer fees.

  • Sassie

    I heard the husbands weren't getting paid in the beginning, but once those shows took off and the husbands had more screen time, they DID start earning money...but not NEARLY as much as the females on the show.

  • Sassie

    It's a paid position. Brat ain't doing that shit for free, LOL

  • Alextra Ballard

    And he skinty,so ion bleeve he pack'n

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yew ain neva lied

  • Sassie

    Thank u.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lmaooo

  • Lady_Elle

    Civil Judgement was handed down in 2014.

  • Lady_Elle

  • bemetoo

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Since she filed bankruptcy, she can kiss the 6 million goodby.Maybe her attorney can show-up to one of her bankruptcy hearings, or file a motion to challenged the debt.

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    Okkkkur....hubby is 6'5 size 13 shoe and I must say the man is blessed by the lord above. ??

  • Renee26

    Well you have a point there...was she horribly disfigured? Maybe she had a $6 million face or could have made that in her lifetime based off her looks

  • pecancandy

    Follow her to the graveyard

  • Jussjess25

  • Peppermint Patty

    GREAT POINT totally agree with the exception that the 90s have kinda came back around....although I find her styles utterly ridiculous as well...especially with the wavy non-edge looks-like you gonna be 60 plus with dem shits

  • Peppermint Patty

    Tried it HELL NO!

  • Peppermint Patty

    Right but does she have ANY royalty checks from her albums? No investments? It baffles me that these celebrities out here living like us regular check to check.....begging n shit hey tyrese
