Da Brat's Bottle Victim

The $6.4 MILLION Injuries

Gnarly Bloody Gashed Face

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

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 ...

update_graphic_red_bar
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.

Act like an animal, get animalistic treatment. The $6.4 Million is not so much because of the lacerations, but a wake-up call to this "female" da Brat that thinks she's a man and animal to act like a lady, not some rough neck, Englewood, 60644, pitbull... I'm done!

After viewing this, I had better close my mouth bout it, cause I Don't know what really happened, but why disrespect brat? But still the girl should be recompensed something, and brat should pay for any surgury that girl need to her face. Dont know what the girl did to provoke, but nobodie.deserve that, and at the same time brat.already spent 3 yrs in the slammer,,,,so imma stay out of that. Brat can still rap. We still love her, she can still make monie,,MUCH love.

From what I understand the girl was a model or at least an aspiring model. $6.4 million seems about right to me, for a potential lifetime of work. If she didn't want to pay, she shouldn't have acted like an animal. And her serving jail time already is irrelevant to any restitution. Ask the Wolf on Wall Street guy.

The violence in black culture - especially when it comes to rappers and hip hop - is absurd. How many stories are there of brawls and bottles thrown in clubs around rappers. It is a disgusting worship of violence. And old and tired. If you go to an establishment and see a rapper there - walk right out. Just means trouble.

sadly courts only rule that you must pay.they do not rule when you must pay.i thinkt hey should make a time line of when the payment should be made.lawsuits like this most of the time do not even get paid.

So a knot on the head, blood in the ear, and a gash on the face = 6.4 million? I see 5x the medical bills and 200 in punitive bein fair. I don't think what da brat did was called for, but neither is 6.4 million. The injuries she seems to have or had are not career ending.
