Da Brat is finally free! According to Theybf.com, 36-year-old Brat has completed her three-year jail sentence for an assault charge. Jermaine Dupri broke the news on Twitter on Monday night. He wrote, “Happy day for me and all SO SO DEF fans, Da BRAT is finally home.” Brat was convicted of hitting a woman in the head with a bottle of rum back in 2007 at JD’s Studio 72 nightclub and was sent to a federal state prison in Alto, Georgia.
According to Sandarose.com, an anonymous tipster said that is on house arrest and is required to notify her parole officer whenever she has to leave her home for doctor’s appointments or emergencies. The source also said that Brat is very lonely and that most of her industry friends have abandoned her, except for her sister LisaRaye, who calls her regularly to keep her spirits up.
The source said, “No one else will return her calls. No one but LR reached out to her while she was in jail.” The source added that few people made the 2 hour drive from Atlanta to see her, “including JD.”
The source also revealed that Brat spends her days writing songs and working in her home studio. But without a record deal or a publishing deal, Da Brat has to rely on residual royalties from her hit records to pay her bills.
