Da Brat Being Sued

Yall remember when Da Brat "allegedly' hit that chick with a bottle last year at Studi0 72?!?!!? Well, here is what Panache Report posted today about the huge lawsuit she is now facing. Read on:

Prominent trial attorney, Willie Gary and his partner, CK Hoffler of the Florida-based law firm of Gary, Williams, Finney, Lewis, Watson and Sperando P.L., announced today that the firm will be representing Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader, Shayla Stevens, against rap artist, Da Brat and Studio 72. Stevens was physically assaulted by Da Brat (according to an eyewitness account, Stevens was slammed face down onto a table and then punched in the face) while working as a part-time waitress at a night club in Tucker, Georgia.

Stevens, who is a cheerleader for the Atlanta Falcons, a dance choreographer, an actress and entrepreneur, also graduated Magna Cum Laude from Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida. The incident occurred at Studio 72, a night club in Tucker, Georgia, heavily promoted by hip-hop producer and businessman, Jermaine Dupri. Stevens, who never met Da Brat prior to the incident, was also hit in the head with a 1.7 liter sized bottle by Da Brat, and suffered permanent injuries to her face as well as possible neurological damage. As a result of her injuries, she will miss upcoming Falcons games and promotional events, as well as a scheduled role on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne sitcom and other commercial, professional choreography and acting opportunities.

Following the incident, the club owners were reluctant to contact the police due to possible negative publicity for the night club. A club manager, who witnessed the assault, failed to seek proper medical intervention for Stevens and she was taken to the hospital by a family member. Prior to the assault, club owners and security had the opportunity to remove Da Brat from the club due to an earlier pushing incident with Ms. Stevens, but failed to do so. Da Brat was arrested and released on $50,000 bond as a result of the incident.
