Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Da Brat Ordered to Pay $6.4 Million To Assault Victim

These celebrities need to think twice before they act out! Looks like rapper Da Brat is going to have to shell out a pretty hefty sum for an assault charge from 2007.

The rapper was charged with attacking former Atlanta Falcons cheerleader Shayla Stevens with a bottle inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007.  She served over 3 years in prison for the crime, but Shayla sued her in 2009.

The case was finally settled this week as a jury awarded Shayla $6.4 MILLION to cover her injuries and past and future loss of earnings!

Now I KNOW Da Brat doesn’t have that type of money! She’s a decent rapper, but her last full album was back in 2003! She’s been seen trying to make comebacks, but nothing substantial. Definitely not $6.4 million worth! So the real question is how in the world is this woman going to pay this money?!

One-half of the hip hop group Kriss Kross was laid krisskrossto rest in Atlanta yesterday and it was an emotional service that included words from the surviving member of the group, as well as performances by some of his former label mates.

Chris Smith, known as Daddy Mac to Chris Kelly’s Mac Daddy, had this to say during the eulogy:

“He was a true friend … I just wanna say I love you man … and I’m gonna miss you dearly. My life  … it ain’t ever gonna be the same, but I just hope our legacy for hip-hop is never forgotten. I’m gonna do my part to make sure Chris’ legacy will live on.”

Also in attendance at the funeral were friends of the singer, including KeKe Wyatt, and the member of Xscape. All of them performed at the service, with Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat paying tribute to the raper by wearing their pants backwards.
