Mariah Carey is being dragged into her good friend Da Brat’s bankruptcy case, with one of the rapper’s creditors demanding to know if the pop star has financially supported the rapper in the past couple of years.
On October 19, Shayla Stevens, the ex-cheerleader who won a $6 million judgment against Da Brat over a nightclub assault, filed court docs demanding she turn over certain financial records.
Among the information Stevens is asking for is information involving all communications with Mariah, Jermaine Dupri, the reality television show “Growing Up Hip Hop in Atlanta,” “Dish Nation,” “The Rickey Smiley Morning Radio Show,” Sony Music, and various others possible income venues.
Stevens wants Da Brat to turn over docs relating to any relationships or work with others “(whether compensated or not), including but not limited to her public statement that she has the ability to obtain funds to pay Plaintiff in this case from either Jermaine Dupri or Mariah Carey.”
Da Brat owes Stevens $8,155,731 — which is the $6 million verdict plus interest — and wants the court to allow her to comb through her finances next month to plot out her next move against the rapper.
As The Blast first reported, Da Brat filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy with assets totaling $108,700.65 and liabilities totaling $7,782,249.57.
Her monthly income as an entertainer/radio personality is $9,319 but her expenses total $10,506.55 a month, leaving her with a negative $1,187 a month after paying her bills.
