Rap star, 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 $6.4 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.

There's no doubt Stevens' injuries are severe -- but $6.4 million is a LOT of money ... especially after Da Brat served a sizable prison sentence ... so we gotta ask ...
