Da Brat's Bottle Victim

The $6.4 MILLION Injuries

Gnarly Bloody Gashed Face

2/28/2014 10:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0228_da_brat_bottle_injury_graphic_photos_launchHere are the injuries that just cost Da Brat $6.4 MILLION -- after she brutally bottled an Atlanta nightclub waitress in the face back in 2007 -- the photos are intense ... but they raise an interesting question.

If you don't want to click, the pics show the bloodied face of former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens at the hospital immediately following Da Brat's attack.

Da Brat and Stevens had reportedly gotten into an argument inside Studio 72 nightclub, and when the waitress turned around to get her manager -- Da Brat smashed her in the face with a rum bottle.

Brat -- real name Shawntae Harris -- served 3 years in prison after pleading guilty to aggravated assault ... and Thursday, a jury found the rapper liable for $6.4 million in damages to the victim.

There's no doubt Stevens' injuries are severe -- but $6.4 million is a LOT of money ... especially after Da Brat served a sizable prison sentence ... so we gotta ask ...

11:40 AM PT -- Da Brat just called in to "TMZ Live," and pretty much told Stevens to get in line ... because she owes a LOT of people money ... and $6.4 million isn't exactly in her budget.

It's not enough. How much would you want if it happened to you? Maybe your face is not worth as much as hers is.

I cant even or wont look at the pics but da brat served his time and i guess you have to ask for 6.4 million hoping the courts award you half of the realistic amount that one might get. who knows, if she looks like hell today in court, years later, she may be awarded 10 million for being so damaged for life.

My view is that the woman could have gotten some sort of infection from the bottle being cut on her face. All these bacteria infections folks have been getting from odd things like cuts from cans of beans--she could have seriously gotten an infection. I think the amount is perfect, plus with that scar as a cheerleader it may have been hard to land another gig where her face most likely is what lands her some jobs. She may also had a lucrative modeling career that she can't attain since the facial injury. Who is to say that Brat probably can't afford to even pay this, but who knows. Have the government repossess the house, cars, jewelry ext and you might wind up with the money. lesson learned- celebrities think they can due whatever and get away with it. To take a bottle to some ones face- let along another woman; this chick has major anger issues.

For 6.4 mil she can hit me two bottles but I'd be just as happy with 3.2 for one bottle..
And as bonus to the Da Brat no police will be involved and after I get stitched up I'll take her out for dinner.

She never made that much in her whole career! The point is that she could have killed her.
