Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri Pulled Into Da Brat’s $8M Bankruptcy Case

*The ex-cheerleader who’s suing Da Brat for assault is now demanding to see Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri’s receipts.

Carey is being dragged into Brat’s bankruptcy case now that one of the rapper’s creditors is demanding to know if the singer has financially supported the So So Def artist in the past couple of years, according to The Blast.

As we previously reported, Shayla Stevens won a $6 million judgment against Da Brat over a nightclub assault. The rapper filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to protect her from having to pay up. Now, Stevens has filed court docs demanding she turn over certain financial records.

According to the report, Stevens is asking for all communications with Mariah, 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 the court to allow her to review Brat’s finances. She’s asking for docs relating to any 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 reportedly owes Stevens $8,155,731 — which is the $6 million judgment plus interest.

According to The Blast report, Da Brat’s “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.”
