Teen Mom Lawyer on Charges: It's a Set Up!

3/29/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The lawyer for "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans tells TMZ ... his client is the victim of a set up, and money is at the bottom of it all.

Dustin Sullivan, Jenelle's lawyer, tells us he has a "serious problem" with the fact that Brittany Maggard -- the woman who pushed Jenelle before the brawl -- and other parties involved were "paid substantially" for pictures and videos related to the incident.

Sullivan says it's suspicious that cameras were present when Jenelle arrived -- indeed, Sullivan says, multiple cameras were present capturing different angles of the impending brawl.

Sullivan is in the process of interviewing witnesses to determine if Britany Truett -- the woman who caught the beatdown -- pre-programmed the melee. 

And, Sullivan says, it's "highly suspicious" Britany waited five days before calling the cops.

How dumb is Jenelle? I mean seriously. It's her choice to trash her life, so let her. Lock her up.

I also love how the American flag is waving proudly in the background...yep, this is home made true blue American S***! You know, the ones that says "this is our country, our values, if you don't like it...leave!"
Wow, thought I was proud to be American, but these bums make you want to bury your head. It's not just the ignorance, it's the lack of any humanity, empathy or desire to be better!
I'm sure there's a confederate flag hanging nearby as well!

Poor thing, she was definitely set up...and it looks like it's her so called "friends" that made it worse. Who are these people and are they a bunch of cousins that married each other? The skinny girl that pushed her twice and the big black girl are the ones I think are the real instigators. Also, who the hell sits in lawn chairs and watches their family member/friend get her butt kicked...maybe that was the plan, if she gets beat up, she gets paid, right? To everyone in this video (I know you low life nobodies are reading this..if u can), there's a thing called karma and you will think of this when it bites you in the butt!

r u kidding me? Janelle got peer pressure to fight is what I read in one of the comments. People wake the hell up! She is old enough to know right from wrong and she knows how to say "NO" if someone os pressuring her. She sure tells her mom "NO" all the time on the show. She is a perfect example as to why teens should not have children.She is a child herself and has zero common sense. Thank God her mom has custody of that child Jace or look what he would be surrounded with. A trashy dumbass mother who is so self centered it is pathetic! That girl needs to grow up and except responsibility for her actions and start being a good role model for the child she brought into this world instead of hanging out and following in the foot steps of her so called friends and boyfriend. Janelle if you read this get rid of all those goofballs in your life because they are only bringing u down and rebuild your relationship with ur family who will love u more than any of those so-called idiot friends of yours ever could. Put ur child's needs above ur own. That is what a real mother does! A real mother doesn't dump her kid on her mom and go party. If u were old enough to make that baby u r damn well old enough to take care of that baby properly! Get a life and get rid of the losers in ur life especially that free loader boyfriend! What a puke he is!

Seriously..all of them are TRASH! I don't care if it was a set up. Jenelle is a mother, and a mother doesn't get into fights over pothead boyfriend. She should stay away from drugs and the people that do them. As for the people that set it up, pushed her, and video taped it..all of you are disgusting. Thank God she doesn't have custody of her child.

What nonsense! She went to Britany's house, she made that choice. Janelle threw the first punch and it's all on video. Whether there was a verbal confrontation first over the phone doesn't matter. She made the choice to go over to Britany's house and start a fight. It's time she learned to walk away. That would have been the grown up thing to do. Fighting over a loser guy? Please someone teach these young girls about self esteem and self respect. There isn't a man out there worth fighting over! Especially if he's cheating on you. Hold your heads up and walk away, you can do better than that!!

I would like to see the contracts MTV has with these children. Who signs it? They are minors. They are being exploited. The fate of these kids are set. No one is going to hire them after their 15 minutes is over. And there are babies with stupid kids for parents. I just don't get how this is legal????

I think Jenelle is making America look ridiculous and it's embarrassing. I kinda feel sorry for the girl but she brought all this on herself.

If it is set up or not NO ONE MADE her fight...yes they provoked and pushed her, but noone hit her first, she threw the first punch.

BAD defense people, she did what she did all on her own, as far as the beat down. Even when that girl pushed her, she waited a bit before punching the girl, so can't blame it on the push.
