Atlanta rapper Da Brat just got hit hard in the pockets. After serving three years in prison for assaulting a woman with a bottle in a club, she has now been ordered to pay the former Atlanta Falcon's cheerleader a total of $6.4 million in damages. 

Reports TMZ:

Da Brat is gonna pay twice for violently bottling a former NFL cheerleader inside an ATL nightclub back in 2007 -- after serving more than 3 years in prison for the crime ... the rapper now has to pay the victim $3.7 MILLION.

Shayla Stevens -- who used to cheer for the Atlanta Falcons -- sued Da Brat in 2009, while the rapper was serving her prison sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated assault.

The civil trial hit a stumbling block Wednesday when a juror in the case admitted he wasn't a U.S. citizen -- but the new jury quickly reached a verdict today.

The jury found Da Brat -- real name Shawntae Harris -- responsible for causing Stevens' permanent facial scarring, neurological impairment, and severe mental pain.

The jury also awarded Stevens an additional $2.7M.

The question everyone is asking now is, Does Da Brat even have $6.4 million to pay this woman?

We're not sure. But we do know that the "Funkdafied" rapper's last proper album was 2003's ironically titled Limelite, Luv & Niteclubz.

Expect a new album and tour to raise some cash sooner than later. The struggle is very, very real.
