Da Brat has been ruled to pay .4 million in damages to Shayla Stevens, a former cheerleader who was attacked by the rapper back in 2007.Now, the first thing that jumped to my mind was the cash — how in the world is Da Brat going to pay off that amount of money?Brat was said to have bottled Shayla on the head and face, causing scarring, mental pain and neurological impairment, according to TMZ, hence why she ended up serving three years in jail. Da Brat committed a serious crime and judging by how the incident happened and how brutal the rapper was to the cheerleader, who is probably skinny and can’t fight like the big girl that Brat is, the charges were well deserved. So I hope y’all remember the allegations that were made between Da Brat and Mariah a couple of years ago — rumor had it that the two were an item for a loooong time before they allegedly went their separate ways following Brat’s jail sentence in 2008. Coincidentally, Mariah then quickly married Nick Cannon that same year after just months of dating. Dupri cultivated Da Brat's image as a "female Snoop Doggy Dogg," and she became one of the first female "reality-based" rappers.Da Brat's debut album Funkdafied was released in 1994 and entered the rap albums chart at #1.In an interview with Atlanta radio show Dish Nation, Da Brat, who is openly lesbian, said Frost wooed her by writing his name and number on the front and back of 20 0 bills, and asked her to call him.She said she called him the next day, and he eventually bought her a Lincoln Navigator, which was all the rage in those days.
This was pre-Rasheeda so don’t go throwing emojis under Brat’s pics on the ’gram but this apparently was a for real, for real thing.
Rapper Da Brat claims she once dated promiscuous reality TV star Kirk Frost back in the day before he met and married his long-suffering wife Rasheeda Frost.
As you know, Kirk and Rasheeda’s marriage is in jeopardy after she learned he sired a baby boy last year.
Clearly the two didn’t last but, now we know Da Brat rode out in that Lincoln, like a G.
