Da Brat Faces Lawsuit For Alleged Club Assault

LATEST: Rapper DA BRAT is facing legal action over her alleged involvement in a violent altercation at JERMAINE DUPRI's Georgia nightclub earlier this month (Nov07). The hip-hop star - real name Shawntae Harris - is accused of attacking fledging actress Shala Stevens, who was working as a waitress at club Studio 72, with a bottle of rum on 1 November (07) after a verbal dispute. Harris, 33 - who is signed to Dupri's So So Def record label - was arrested shortly after the incident and charged with aggravated assault. But Harris' problems don't end there - Stevens is preparing to sue the Not Tonight hitmaker and has hired the services of the prominent Florida-based law firm Gary, Williams, Finney, Lewis, Watson and Sperando P.L. Stevens, who is also a cheerleader for American football team the Atlanta Falcons, will be represented by attorneys Willie Gary and CK Hoffler in her lawsuit against Harris and the owners of Atlanta's Studio 72. Gary tells AllHipHop.com, "Our client was physically attacked by Da Brat and has suffered significant head injuries, permanent disfigurement as well as mental distress. "Ms. Stevens is a cheerleader, choreographer, dancer, actress and entrepreneur, whose career has been greatly affected by this incident." Gary claims Stevens has been forced to pull out of an upcoming role on Tyler Perry's U.S. sitcom, House of Payne, as a result of her injuries. He has also alleges that a manager who witnessed the incident failed to get Stevens proper medical attention following the attack, and claims the club's owners and security refused to removed Harris from the premises prior to the altercation.
