Da Brat
is gonna pay twice for violently bottling a former NFL cheerleader inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007 -- after serving more than 3 years in prison for the crime ... the rapper now has to pay the victim $3.7 MILLION.

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

The civil trial hit a stumbling block Wednesday when a juror in the case admitted he wasn't a U.S. citizen -- but the new jury quickly reached a verdict today.

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

What's funny is everyone thinks Da Brat is broke because she's been missing in action the past decade. She has a net worth of 25 million. I'm pretty sure that accounts for everyone that's commenting on here. 2nd, we ALL have opioins. U can side with the cheerleader or Brat. It's that simple. Bottom line no one knows what happened that night and we can easily make the assumption that the cheerleader easily targeted Brat and got money out of it. Men/women these days don't know how to act. Don't make the assumption about what happened if you weren't there. Brat learned her lesion everyone can move on. It's not that serious. The end

So for a scar that was likely treated by a plastic surgeon at the hospital at the time, she was awarded 6.4 million dollars? Trayvon Martin's parents weren't awarded that for the murder of their son.

She should have hit Remy Ma with the bottle and Remy Ma shoot her in the stomach and neither one of them would have hurt innocent people because they feel they were being disrespected.
