Da Brat's off the hook...for now.
The ongoing case between Da Brat and former cheerleader Shayla Stevens has come to a temporary resolution in favour of the "Sock It 2 Me" rapper. The Blast reports that Da Brat will not be forced to pay Shayla the $6 million judgment because she's filing for bankruptcy. Shayla and her lawyers previously wanted Da Brat to be arrested for not paying up in time but the rapper argued that if in jail, she wouldn't be able to work to pay off her debt.
Da Brat's bankruptcy file offers protection from anyone trying to collect money. There's no word on how long the protection lasts and as previously reported Da Brat's assets tally up to a hefty amount that could help her pay off some money. Apparently "her assets include a 1999 Mercedes 238i ($5k), a 2014 BMW 328i ($15k), and a 2016 Jeep Wrangler ($23k)." Other materialistic items include furniture, jewelry, clothing and electronics.
Overall we think it's safe to say that Da Brat should be looking to book a lot of gigs as it may be the best way to get a decent amount of money rolling in over a certain period of time.
