Da Brat files for bankruptcy, owes over $7M

The rapper Da Brat has filed for bankruptcy.

The ’90s star, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, in the process revealing that she’s well over $7 million in debt, according to court docs obtained by The Blast.

Harris’ liabilities reportedly include a $6.4 million judgment awarded to former cheerleader Shayla Stevens, who the rapper allegedly struck in the head with a bottle during a 2007 nightclub brawl. She also owes $1.25 million to Sony Music, among others.

She does claim $108,700.65 in assets, though, including a 1999 Mercedes 238i (valued at $5,000), a 2014 BMW 328i ($15,000) and a 2016 Jeep Wrangler ($23,000).

The docs also state that the rapper’s income is $9,319 per month, but that her monthly expenses total $10,506.55, leaving her down $1,187 every 30 days.

Fortunately, her spot on the So So Def 25th-anniversary tour bill might see these numbers go up.

Harris’ rep did not respond to a request for comment.
