Proving that female rappers can be just as volatile as their male counterparts, Da Brat was ordered to pay $6.4 million for beating a woman with a bottle.

Da Brat, real name Shawntae Harris, had already served three years in prison for the 2007 incident in which she attacked a former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader and waitress at a nightclub.

“I’m baffled,” said attorney B.J. Bernstein to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “She owned up to what happened when it happened and was punished.” But Shayla Stevens’ attorney said that his client suffered lifelong injuries.

“She has a brain injury and is a brain injury survivor,” said Mark Link of Stevens’ permanent traumas from that Halloween night party. “It’s not something that will ever go away. She has a scar on her face. She had so much going for her and for it come to an abrupt stop because of this attack.”

Da Brat, 39, is to pay $3.7 million in compensatory damages and $2.7 million in punitive damages.
