R+B beauty Brandy once taught a verbally-abusive ex-boyfriend a lesson - by taking her revenge on his car.

The NEVER SAY NEVER beauty - who is separated from first husband ROBERT SMITH - was horrified when a former beau called her a b***h, and found the perfect way to pay him back.

She explains, "I cried in shock because I was like, 'I do everything for you. I'm so nice to you... That's how you wanna talk to me?'"

So the strong-willed singer scratched his car.

She adds, "I know it was wrong. I did it because I was tired of being hurt. That was my revenge."
