Not Looking Good for Da Brat and JD

- By Bossip Staff

The young lady who was busted in the head a couple of weeks ago by Da Brat with a bottle of rum is bringing that attorney heat on both Da Brat and Jermaine Dupri’s club Studio 72. Via AHH:

Shayla Stevens, the Atlanta Falcons Cheerleader who was allegedly assaulted by Da Brat earlier this month, has hired prominent attorneys Willie Gary and CK Hoffler and their firm, Gary, Williams, Finney, Lewis, Watson and Sperando P.L. Da Brat, born Shawntae Harris, allegedly struck Stevens with a 1.7 liter bottle of rum during a shoving match in the club in the early hours of November 1. According to Gary, Stevens has suffered permanent injuries to her face, as well as possible neurological damage. Additionally, she will miss upcoming games as cheerleader for the Falcons, as well as a scheduled role on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne sitcom. Gary, who is nicknamed “The Giant Killer” for his judgments against corporations, is noted for winning a $240 million jury verdict against Walt Disney, for stealing his clients idea for a theme park.

He also claims that the owners of Club 72, hesitated to contact police due to the negative publicity the assault would cause. A manager who witnessed the assault allegedly failed to help Stevens seek proper medical attention and she was eventually taken to the hospital by a family member. Gary also said that prior to the assault, club owners and security had the opportunity to remove Da Brat from Club 72, but failed to do so. Da Brat was charged with aggravated assault. She was released on $50,000 bond as a result of the incident.

Damn, somebody is about to come up. SMH.

    You blacks are just as worst as the jews. Sue, Sue, Sue, why dont you jobs and stop trying to take the easy way out.

  • joe

    i like the brat as an aritist and celebrity personality, but she has to be responsible for her actions and suffer the consequences.

    when will people learn that they have no right to assult people? you DON’T have an excuse to go around beating on people becasue you don’t like what they say or do.

    i think only truly incompetent people choose to fight becasue they areunable to express themselves verbally.

    Good for her stupid ass!! How in the heck can you hit someone in the head with a bottle and think that you are not suppose to suffer the consequences!!! She needs to sue her crazy elementary ass!! Da Brat has never been hot in my book! Even in the damn 90’s!! She had about 2 songs that were ok. But she is really trippin these days thinking that she was the greatest “MC” in her day!! She wants people to think that she is so hard by putting on this image! I remember going to school with people like her. Notice that I said “school”, which means Da Brat needs to grow the hell up!

  • N-Qui-Sa-Tive?

    JD when you got it good, sometimes you have to let those old ghost go. You can’t bring/keep everyone up at the top. She had her chance a LOOOONNNNGGGG time ago. See, now it’s gonna cost ya!

    Okay, 1st of all, the victim is a VERY good friend of mine and I know for sure that there was ABSOUTELY NO ALTERCATION that EVER took place. That is just a made up story (by Brat’s publicists) to make Da Brat not seem like the psychopath that she really is. This was no doubt a case of mistaken identity! Da Brat thought Shayla was some “other” chick she had beef with and ran up on her with a bottle.

  • Bahama Mama

    Ain’t no one saying what kind of rum it was cot damnit!!! Now if it was that expensive ish, Brat a$$ needs to sued! You don’t go wasting good rum…lmao

  • blackstar

    I am Glad she should have learned the first time the Brat is out there she is in her 30’s acting like she’s in high school that little girl is going to get Paid by JD and DaBrat My advice get in the studio and start making tracks because Willie Gary goes after Corporations and wins Good luck

  • Just Sit And Be Pretty

    Georgia Girl, then if that’s the case, I really hope your friend gets a huge settlement!! Just tell her to invest wisely and don’t spend it all in one place. 🙂

  • Nivia

    @ Georgia Girl

    Thanks for giving us the truth! On another blog they had Shayla’s last name as Smith and I was like WTF!

    Anyway, Shayla and I danced together in Essence at FAMU and we lived in the same apartment complex. She is one of the sweetest people I ever met and I wish her a healthy recovery.

    Da Brat sucks for this one! she can’t live off “Funkdafied” forever, time to pay up!

    Is it me, or was it yesterday, I saw a picture from the urban gossip blogs of Beyaki’s ugly dress in the Daily News newspaper. There are all kinds of trolls on these sites. Proud to see most of us know when they throw out bait and ingnore them.

    BB, I should have put a smiley face behind my comment about her never having to work again. And they do wonders with facial plastic surgery these days. If she needs work, she just has to thoroughly research her doctor and make sure he’s board certified!!

    Now I don’t think da Brat needs to go to the pen for this, but maybe do a stint in a minimum security place. I mean, c’mon, she didn’t commit murder.

  • Observatrice

    Hey, Da Brat — if you want to start beef for publicity, make sure the other person is in on it, don’t just roll up on someone you don’t know for no reason. Grow up Brat, and get the GED too, maybe that will bring some sense to you

  • joe

    @ Just Sit and Be Pretty…

    with the late Dr. West and other misfortunes, it looks like it’s becomming apparent (at least to me) that getting “work” can lead to lots of other problems.

    simply stated, it isn’t as easy as we may think. shayla would have been better off not having to go through this at all.

    IMO, i rather work for the rest of my life and have my original parts that to not have to work and go under the knife as a full time job.

    Okay so I know I am late…try not to clown 🙂 But what does “SMH” mean?
