Da Brat is gonna pay twice for violently bottling a former NFL cheerleader inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007 — after serving more than 3 years in prison for the crime … the rapper now has to pay the victim $3.7 MILLION.
Shayla Stevens — who used to cheer for the Atlanta Falcons — sued Da Brat in 2009, while the rapper was serving her prison sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault.
