Ouch: Rapper Da Brat Files For Bankruptcy; Claims $7.7 Million in Debt

Da Brat is super happy that Jermaine Dupri planned this So So Def Reunion Tour since she could really use the money. The OG female rapper has filed for bankruptcy claiming she is in debt to the tune of $7.7 million.

A large chunk of that debt stems from money owed to NFL cheerleader Shayla Stevens after Da Brat threw a bottle at her in a nightclub in 2007 leaving permanent facial scarring and neurological impairment. The judge ordered the MC to pay up $6.4 million in addition to serving time in jail. The rest of the debt includes $1,255,128 owed to Sony Music, $12,000 to Ally Bank, $2,284 in credit card debt, and money owed in back taxes.


We are sure Da Brat will soon be selling off her assets which include three vehicles (a 1999 Mercedes 238i worth $5,000, a 2014 BMW 328i worth $15,000, and a 2016 Jeep Wrangler worth $23,000), various electronics and other items.
