Da Brat, aka Shawntae Harris, has been sentenced to three years in jail for the Oct. 31 incident, which occurred at Jermaine Dupri's Studio 72 nightclub. Da Brat was accused of slashing an employee's face with a glass bottle, sending her to the hospital. Da Brat pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault in the hopes of winning a light sentence or avoiding jail time altogether. But the judge wasn't in a forgiving mood, noting that the victim suffered permanent facial scars. The rapper and a half-dozen family members all broke down after hearing the sentence. "I love y'all," she said to her relatives as a deputy hauled her away, per the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. "We love you too," came the family reply.
I still can't figure out why people need to behave this way, especially when you have so much going for you. Not that Da Brat still has a career in rap, but I know she ain't broke and struggling. She might be after that civil suit hits that azz, yall know that girl is going to sue the ish out of Da Brat.
