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.

To FUTURE STARS! Think before you react, one night runined The Brats LIFE/Career, hopefully for her, she can rebound, it will be hard. Having to pay $3.7 million for damages is a lesson learned. When people become famous, there not untouchable. Think before you react even of others are wrong because it all comes down to "THE BRAT ASSAULTED........" and nothing else, doesnt matter if Da Brat was wrong or right, when you have a celebrity name, your guilty until you can prove your innocence. Sometimes, its best to walk away, let them call you a punk and say you were scared because if the price you have to pay is losing your freedom for 3 years and some of your rights and then $3.7 million not even millionaires have to give, I'll pass, theres no pride in destroying yourself! Brat was a great rapper, still is, this hurts her Im sure. I hope she can rebound, and teach others not to make the same decisions she did. Hope the best for her financially and personally! We all are flawed!!! LGNM
