LisaRaye McCoy was left in tears after her sister, Da Brat opened up about her financial troubles and took responsibility for her past mistakes.
Eleven years ago, Da Brat was involved in an altercation that resulted in her smashing a bottle of champagne on the head of Shayla Stevens, a former NFL cheerleader.
She spent 21 months in jail and was placed on probation for seven years. Part of the judgment from that case involves the rapper paying millions to Stevens, and a few months back, she had to file for bankruptcy.
In a recent clip of “Growing Up Hip-Hop: Atlanta,” Da Brat bared her emotions about the issue and had a heart-to-heart with her half-sister, McCoy.
“It started out at like $6.4 million, then it got some interest on it, and I think it’s at like eight-something now,” said the “Dish Nation” co-host in a confessional scene. “I ain’t never had $8 million.”
Da Brat, 44, told McCoy that she might have made $8 million in her life but she’s never seen it herself. The legal jargon that came with the judgment also did not help matters. Da Brat admitted:
“I was wrong, damn. I was wrong. I [expletive] up. I made a mistake, I regret it, I went to jail. Yeah, OK. A lot of bad things happened, but I also met a lot of great people and learned a lot from it. I’m good with it.”
The candid admission touched McCoy, who couldn’t help shedding tears.
“I’m just really, really proud of you,” said the “Single Ladies” actress. “I am. Because I know you been through a lot. And nobody really, really know except the people that’s really inside. But I wanna tell you that I love you.”
Da Brat also got emotional right along with her sister and said:
“Stop. I hate when you do that. You can’t do that when I’m not f–king strong. You can’t do that, yo.”
McCoy, 51, has always been supportive of her sister. A few months back, the actress was one of many guests at a party to celebrate the end of Da Brat’s seven-year probation.
