Da Brat – Woman Who Rapper Hit In Head w/ Liquor Bottle, Wants Radio Paycheck Garnished
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, Shayla Stevens has filed suit against Da Brat, in which she is seeking to garnish the rapper’s wages from Reach Media Inc., the company who produces the Rickey Smiley Radio Show. Da Brat is a radio co-host on the popularly syndicated show.
Shayla, who is a former NFL cheerleader, is seeking to garnish her wages in an attempt to collect the $6.4 million owed from the lawsuit she won back in 2014.
As previously reported, back in 2007, Shayla accused Da Brat of violently attacking her inside an Atlanta nightclub. She alleged that Da Brat hit her in the face with a liquor bottle. Two years after the incident, Shayla filed a lawsuit, while the rapper was in jail serving a 3-year sentence over the incident.
In the lawsuit, she claimed she suffered permanent facial scarring, mental pain and neurological impairment. The case went to trial in 2014. A jury found the rapper liable for Stevens’ injuries and awarded the plaintiff $3.7 million to cover her injuries and past/future loss of earnings and an additional $2.7 million as punishment against Da Brat’s actions for a grand total of $6.4 million.
